    Thanks Kevin, it's got attitude, there's more to come in that area. At this point I'm getting it ready to undercoat the body.

    Nice comparisons Tim, the Revell car looks very close to the R & M car.

    Great work Pat, let your mind wonder.

    Great looking build Marcos, I love those '57 Fords! (So did American car buyers in 1957). The engine bay detail looks 1:1 from here. Did you use just a basic 'black' wash on the wheels? They fit the build well.

    Kevin, given all the fitment issues this kit has with the body/tub to frame, I'm lucky it's not worse. 
    Thanks Ace, 'slow and steady. 
    I'm happy with the overall progress.

    Thanks for the positive words gentlemen. Here's what I've got with the initial fit. 
    As you can see the stacks don't line up perfectly square within the hood cutout, but , it's not crooked, or tilted, side to side,  I can live with that. 
    Ace, you can see in the rear shot those tabs for the rear panel fit perfectly around the frame, I didn't even think about that! (thickness of tabs) , the frame just slid right in place, wow , I lucked out. 
    Let me know what you think.

    Those builds look great Tim. I love the turquoise one. That engine color with the black and white just kills.

    That is an interesting (in a good way) color Lee. I love that body style, it looks like it's going fast standing still.

    Thanks Kevin, those stacks are such a central part of this kit, I had to do something with them. I have some nice spun aluminum stacks from 'Speed City Resin, but , the kit stacks where just easier for me to get in place. The Alclad adds a lot of realism to them. 
    Okay, here's where I'm at now; everything is attached and touched up, ready for the final push,........putting that body on, and , seeing how things line up. Should have pics of the results some time today.
