I really enjoyed building this one. I liked those colors on the box so much I decided to paint it the same.Attached File  003.JPG   271.37KB   0 downloadsAttached File  004.JPG   252.97KB   0 downloadsAttached File  005.JPG   193.15KB   0 downloads

It looks good, but you need to be more careful when you're trimming your foil.

Try a fresh blade and a steel straight-edge next foil job; makes a huge difference. That aside, you did a nice job with this.

You did a great job on the interior - just the right leather sheen on the seats.

Lots of nice points about this build. Looks nice in red/black. I've noticed mistakes in my own foil, once I look at my own pictures. They seem to be invisible to the naked eye, but the camera will find them.  ;)

I know what you mean about the colors on the box art.  It just looks so right.  You've represented it quite nicely, and that interior is gorgeous.

Ain't it the truth!

After looking at the pictures I have to agree the foil job leaves something to be desired. Pictures do seem to magnify any & all mistakes. Thanks for all the kudos & I appreciate the suggestions.

I agree, it looks very realistic.
