  1. Getting these panel inserts into the body is proving to be a tricky process. I'm having to thin out & slightly trim the edges of the outer inserts & headlight buckets as well as the lower grille to get them to fit in the recesses properly. 



    and after:


    I do like what AMT did with the outside rearview mirrors. They pretty much pinned the mirrors OOB:


    and they fit pretty well once inserted into the holes. Maybe a little clean up but this is definitely a step in the right direction so the mirrors will stay in place when handling later.

    Thanks guys!

    Much appreciated! I think there are about six different "black" paints used to try to mix things up a little bit.

    Looks like you really put some good time & work into it.

    Excellent engine bay, I believe it would start, very realistic!

    Thanks Carl! 

    I messed around with the core support a little more and got it to move forward........some. Not perfect but I'm not going risk all the work that I've put into it up to now in fixing a minor blem.

    Great builds Joe. All are beautifully done, as all your builds are. I only have one question. Being a native Texan, I notice that the Mustang and the Camaro have Texas license plates on the rear, but where are the front plates? Or has Texas finally done away with those seemingly useless front plates?

    The very best to you my friend, and again, beautiful work.



    Thanks John. I'll let you in on a little secret. I don't run front plates on my 1:1 cars/ trucks either for just the reason you stated. Texas still has the front plate rule in effect. lol

    It's not quantity Joe, it's quality, and you my friend are a top notch builder. I aspire to be as good as you.

    Thank you, Lee, for the good word pal.

  5. Very cleanly built car and those wheels and tires as well as the stance really set it all off. I hear you on twisted parts and flash. I just built a 1970 Camaro not too long ago that if I hadn't caught the slight twist in the body would have given me some fits after the paint work during final assembly. Well done.

  6. You're another one of the gang that I was waiting on "Year End Pass In Reviews" for JR. Beautiful builds you've got here bud. Looking very much forward to seeing what you bring us for the 2023 year brutha.

  7. Black is a hard color to get right and additionally to hard to keep from being boring in places like the interior. This ......is definitely NOT boring. Great shine on the exterior and good usage of different shades of black on the interior and picking out the small details. Superb build.
