    Steve, thought you and the guys would get a kick out of this old Kodachrome that popped up in the "Vintage Shots" thread on the HAMB forum. Nice new '61 Invicta ragtop in "Sun Valley Cream" and "Granada Black." Very pretty car. Back then Buicks with factory two-tone like this were relatively rare.

    Amazing work, Steve! What did you use for the piping on the seats?

    Nicely done! The new wheels give it an aggressive look and the bright blue sweep panels add a little Bugatti accent – just right!

    Very attractive color combo and great job on those fades!

    Thanks for this review, Tim! Very valuable info.
    It looks like the "rust" decals might work better on a grey-primered body given the patches of pale grey in the artwork. Perhaps airbrushing some grey primer along the upper portion of the decal and fogging it back into the body might camouflage that edge of the carrier film.

    Paint job is sheer genius!

    You guys are cracking me up!
    I remember my late Grandfather, who came of age in the late teens and 1920's, complaining that "all cars look the same today, not like when I was a young man" while I was oohing and awwing over the new '64s in Motor Trend (oh, man, that Galaxie 500XL!) in the fall of '63.
    Seems every generation whines about the same things, among them, "all cars look the same nowadays." File that next to "Oh, these kids today and their crazy _____ (music, clothes, hair, etc.), don't have any_____ (respect, ambition, etc., etc.") along with the all-encompassing (and always inaccurate) "Life was so much simpler back then," and all variations thereof.
    Of course that's coming from a geezer whose standard of comparison in car design is, "Is it as memorably beautiful as a '57 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer?" Now that I'm just shy of the same age as my Granddad was when he made the eternal "all cars..." complaint, I've finally learned to identify some of his beloved cars from the teens and '20s, but it gives me a headache because, well, "they all look the same," just as it does trying to sort out all the various SUVs, crossovers, and four-door "coupes" of today.

    Great work, Andy! Looking forward to crisp photos from your new camera.
    Oh, and don't tell anybody else, but did you notice how the top edge of the fins on the Del Rio curve up for the first inch and a quarter or so. They should be straight. It's the same on the Custom Tudor but is less noticeable because of the trim.

    One of my favorite cars in a very attractive color combo! Good work, Rich!
    I've got this kit in my stash. Any pitfalls I need to watch out for?

    Nice color!  One vote for the original Chrysler wire wheels and WWs! Those wire wheels are THE look for mid-'50s Mopars!

    Very impressive workmanship!

    Looks great, Tom!
    Did you have to modify the front inner wheel wells to lower the front?

    Yeah, man, that's way better! Nice work, Andy.
