    Now that you have the minion done when are you starting on the miniature Don Prudhomme?  Looks great with color and even better on the chassis.  This is one amazing model!!

    That came out really nice Ray, I really like the color combination.  Hopefully it motivated me to get started on mine.  Thanks for sharing the build.

    Good luck Danno and Bernie on the show.  Sure wish  I was going to be there, but the nine hour drive just isn't going to happen.  There's always next year!!

    It's looking really good Ray.  That is going to be my next large scale build so I'm curious as to how the parts fit is, and how well it goes together.

    That is a great looking '56, I love the color!  That would be a beautiful 1:1 wagon to own.

    When we moved from Arizona to California last year all of my built models, most of the un-built models, the model case, and all the plaques had to stay in our house in Arizona due to downsizing.  Prior to moving the plaques all got boxed up.  Entered one contest since I've been here and that trophy is in the closet.

    The doors were painted two weeks prior to wrapping them in saran wrap and spent two hours of that time in a dehydrator.  I thought they were cured but as peteski mentioned the scalefinishes paint does seem soft.  I did not clear coat over the paint, but it had been waxed with Meguiars prior to wrapping in saran wrap.  The doors have been painted three times, once because they were masked with Tamiya tape and put in the dehydrator with the tape still on.  Bad idea!!  I have learned a lot painting those two doors, at least I know what not to do!

    Saran wrap marks
    Ok, I used saran wrap and Tamiya tape to wrap a set of doors in order to paint the wing windows with Alclad chrome.  Everything came out good, but now I have all these ghost marks on the Scalefinishes paint job from the saran wrap.  What can i use to remove the marks?  Will they wash out with soap and water, rub out with wax,or what?

    Amazing!!  The body is still in one piece, that takes a lot of restraint to not just chuck it!!  Great job Chris!
