Just completed this afternoon is this puppy.  I used Duplicolor dark cherry metallic for the body.  The panel has some HOK silver stripes covered in HOK apple red candy and then clear over everything.  Made a 1 piece rear door and a full length skylight.  Rear wheelweels had be enlarged for the body to cover the huge M/T Sportsman tires from Ma's Resin.  Grille is scratch built.

What a beautiful model. My only comment though is that with a custom grille it could be anything from 53-55. If I may ask why did you specify a 54?

Thank you, Ken.   I thought the box said '54 but I just checked.  It's a '55.  Sorry for the mistake.

Thanks, Terry.  The mean dog (1 of 3) was supplied by the Bartster.  And where has he been?
