Well whatever it is, it looks right at home on a Nova. I hated Testors enamel spray cans, but you're right the new one coat stuff is pretty awesome and looks great right out of the can with some clear on top.

Really dig the sleeper look 'cept the gel coat hood gives some away. Make sure the rims are screwed the beads if the tires. I have a white one going together and yours looks tones better than mine. Michael

Like others have said, I don't think it's ugly at all.  I think it's a pretty interesting looking model.  Thanks for sharing.

Great build! Is the chrome side trim above the body line a kit decal?

Yeah it is the decal that came with the model. I wanted to use the black one but it cracked in multiple spots so I was forced to go with the white.

if i might say myself one of the best novas i've seen in awhile.the workmanship is top notch. when you see a model done very well like this one it doesnt look like a model it looks realistic and makes you do a double take.the finish is amazing i need t o and hat to say swithc from house of kolor ,trouble is i have so much of it. im thinking of changing the clear to a less of a high build ..oh the wheel combo sets off even further..

Hey thanks alot man! I just used the testors clear. I figured you can't go wrong if you just use stuff from the same product line.

 

Also, thanks to everyone for the compliments... it's much appreciated.

looks very good and a weekend street brawler, but one thing i noticed, it appears the rear wheels are 6 lug instead of the stock 5 lug
