I´ve been following this build of yours in your FB- page. Your work simply amazes me. We have four local model clubs for kids here in South-Eastern Finland, and were currently having a " Built AMT ´51 Chevy " club project with about 45 to 50 Chevys on our workbenches.
I am leading one of our clubs and building one kit for myself also.
All this means that I am very familiar with all issues related to this kit and I´m doind a very humble bow here while studying your beautiful model.
