This build is just simply beautiful! I understand it's not the correct color, but it sure looks perfect on it. What kind of paint and color did you use?

Very well built. I built this kit a couple of years ago so know what you went though to get to the point where it looks as good as your photos show. By the time I was done I had a pile of putty dust big enough to start another car. Since building it I've also done the PL Batmobile and the scale difference is really obvious. I wish PL would use their Batmobile mold to produce the original Futura but that is not likely to happen.

 

Again, an excellent build from a seldom built model.

Good build.  Well built and finished.  I am hoping to build this kit to display next to the '66 Batmobile.

Have to agree with Kevin White on his reference to your ability "getting the multi-piece body straight." I have tried the kit a couple of times and put in the recycle bin a couple of times too.

 

Good job.  :D
