    super job-I like the standards with the painted head lamp doors- nice grill detail and the running board color is perfect

    thanks guys for the nice words. should have more pics up soon.... the resin body has been a major pain- first with the fish eye in the primer and now with the paint that I had to strip in parts. I just remembered its supposed to look like a car that has been on the road for 20 years so maybe i'm being too picky about the finish......

    this is just SUPERB-  best shop diorama I have seen in a long time     especially the floors -they are such an important part and yours look ''spot on''-pun intended

    I like the home made grill- seen those before  nice weathering job  too.  that dent in the roof looks like it would hold a gallon of water.

    OUTRAGEOUS    Killer paint job!!!!!

    I have spent some time ''Toning down'' wipers- first of all they are never chrome plated and always stainless on this period car.[the stainless takes on a dull look naturally]  one could strip the chrome and paint them a medium  grey. however they still may be too thick. you could get away using the blades and scratch build the arms. since the model is done I would just put them in a more parked position and be done with it-   FABULOUS BUILD ANYWAY.....

    nice work-looks just like they did way back when...

    Amazing- I don't recall seeing this before, it is certainly Museum quality.  Harry had an incredible eye for authenticity.

    Man -that is SHARP   Amazing attention to detail- the stripe is super crisp. the interior looks real and the engine bay as does the under chassis.  my only critique is the wipers- they need the rubber blades painted and to be positioned better. besides that it looks real!!!
