Probably one of the best color combos for the '55. Looking good.

here is some updated pics of my build so far. if the red on the car looks different that's because it is. i had to remove all of the paint from what i sprayed on there in the beginning and start over. this i my first all shiny model im working on and im following through on it. ive tried before but ended up making it rusty but not this one.... i hope lol.

another update on the 55. got the interior started i used embrosey powder for the carpet and think it looks pretty realistic and to scale. then with the body i got it all wet sanded, buffed, polished, and waxed but i have to go over it a little more. hope you like.
