    Another treat for the rest of us.  Beautiful work, Steve.

    Steve, your builds are inspirational!  You make me want to be a better modeler...

    John, I just used rattle cans for this one, Tamiya TS-26 Pure White, Testors Nassau Blue Metallic Lacquer, and Testors Blue Angel Blue.  I think the key for me is very artful masking with Tamiya tape.  Thanks for the kind words.

    "If it's any consolation, the interior looks terrific".
    Thanks, Steve.  That is a real compliment considering how much I have admired the interiors of your builds.  Hopefully I will get to use this one some time in the future. 😯

    Very shiny and a very clean build so far.  Keep it up!

    1959 Olds 98 Convertible
    I started this a while ago, my first resin build.  I laid down a nice smooth paint job with Tamiya TS-26. I had some trouble with the tri-tone interior, so I needed to strip the paint and start over.  I looked online and someone had suggested alcohol, so I soaked the tub in 91% IPA for a couple days and it cleaned up nicely.  I re-did the interior paint and it turned out well. 
    .
    Last week as I was starting to foil the body I noticed some paint lift.  I must not have soaked the body long enough in Westley's, so I thought I'd strip it and repaint, just as I'd done with the interior.  I let it soak all night in the alcohol and when I checked it in the morning it was badly warped and can't be salvaged (note the cowl and trunk)..

    I don't know if or when I'll be able to order a replacement from the Modelhaus.  I wish I had soaked it in Westley's instead of alcohol but hindsight is 20/20.  Just wanted to share this in case it can keep someone else from making the same error.

    Nice job on the Poncho, Bob!  That's a nice clean build and I like the color, too.

    Bill, congratulations on getting this one finished.  Your builds always inspire, and this Chevy is no exception.  Excellent!

    This Vette is really looking good.  A very clean build and you picked a classic color combination.  Can't wait to see this one finished.

    Good point, Bill, but "metal fatigue" just rolls off the tongue more readily than "intergranular corrosion" or whatever the the true cause is called.  😉

    I'm late to the party but let me add my compliments, Steve.  Your inspired color choices and ultra-clean building style always draw me to your projects like a moth to a flame.  Very nice Monaco!

    Looking very good, James.  This is a fun build to follow.
