    We used to call that a sleeper. Nice build.

    Bummer. First Modelhaus, now Scale Hardware. I've bought both products in the past, excellent quality. What a shame...

    Beautiful work on the cage. I have a question about how you solder nickel silver tubing, do you use a soldering iron, torch or resistance soldering unit? What type/wattage do you use?

    Sweet. Definitely on my list of must have kits.

    Beautiful model, your attention to detail is outstanding. Harry, have you thought of using tiny rare earth magnets to secure the hood straps when displaying the hood closed?

    The color I used was Model Master dark metallic blue thinned down and shot through a Paasche airbrush. Then it was clear coated with a two part automotive clear.

    Very pleased with the way these came out.

    I've avoided any of the models of newer cars because of lack-of-detail/curbside appearance of the models. Will definitely consider buying one of these. Paint color should be like Bill said, something bright like the new GM electric blue or the burnt orange.

    Nice paint and foil. Those late 50's GM cars had some serious chrome. The most labor intensive model to foil for me is the 58 Impala.

    I like the last 2, mostly leaning toward the Artillery wheels.

    $75, for the 1/!2 Revell F2002 when it first came out. (Then I paid $150 for the Scalemotorsports detail set  )

    Very cool! Nice work blending the two together.

    Looking good. I'll be watching this build. I've been working on the plastic version of this kit on and off for several years. Its a frustrating
    semi crude kit that requires some work to make it look right.

    Very clean build, nicely done.

    In my case just a few cars:
    63 Splitwindow (most beautiful car, in my opinion)
    58 Impala (baby blue, like the one my dad had)
    69 Chevelle (to replace the one I should have never sold)
    And a new Z06...
