I got the June issue today and read the review first thing. Great job on this kit, you've made an outstanding example! (As usual...!)

Gotta say the article on the Willys you wrote on paint is helping me out a lot, I have learned a few neat tricks just by reading it. I am amazed at how well the BMF looks on this build, looks real shiny and clean. What paint do you use for the black around the windows? The rear one turned out so good. Definitely would make another  great cover shot for the mag!

Thanks for the replies fellas, I surely appreciate them very much. Kevin, I like to use Engine Black from the Polly Scale line of acrylic paints to paint my window trim. It goes on smooth and pretty much levels itself. Also, capillary action helps for the back window on this one, didn't even have to mask it! :rolleyes:

I love everything about it man but the paint is just out of this world man. I just purchased the Micro Mesh set of polishing films, is that the one you own?
