Looks great,nice job.,I like the engine detail. I've built that kit twice and have two more. The AMT kit may be an old mold but they still build up nice with a little work (and a lot of BMF).I have a couple of the Revell kits,but I haven't built one yet.

Very nice job on that build Tommy, and if you enjoyed building it, "that's all that counts."

Looks great!  It is a nice kit, only the opening doors are rather poorly done, but you made a beautiful modern street car and I like it a lot!
