The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
I couldn't get the kit supplied decals to fit at the correct angle. I thought I had LH and RH mixed up but neither fit correctly. I guess that is why they are not called out in the I-Sheets. I cut fine wedges of BMF instead and I like how they turned out. The picture is a little close-up but if I look at it on the bench with one eye closed and the other squinted, it looks spot on!
The side view mirror, turn signal lights decals (9 and 10) are not called out in the assembly instruction sheets. However they are in the picture of the finished model in the instruction sheets, if you look closely. The decals are yellow in the center but that's if the turn signal(s) are on. I'll have to try and place a thin strip of BMF over the yellow part to achieve the look of them being off (non-illuminated).
Hi TarheelRick, thanks for checking in and sorry for the delayed reply. It's a really good, well engineered, snap together kit. So far there is no flash and all ejector pin marks and most sprue gate fray are located so they wont be seen after assembly. The only flaw in this kit that I notice is the thick 'glass' part that must be addressed by painting properly. I still wonder why they chose to produce the Azera (Grandeur) and not the Veloster, Tucson, or Genesis Coupe, all Hyundai. And then there is the KIA SOUL, Forte Koup, or Borrego.
Ok, be warned of orbital trauma by viewing these pictures. I have no idea where the wheels went and some of it has fallen apart since assembly. http://i515.photobucket.com/albums/t357/Bogyoke/models/GMC_General_boxart_zpszr141v3o.jpg http://i515.photobucket.com/albums/t357/Bogyoke/models/GMC_General_t_zpsc8efvzgs.jpg http://i515.photobucket.com/albums/t357/Bogyoke/models/GMC_General_r_zpsf1g2sjgl.jpg http://i515.photobucket.com/albums/t357/Bogyoke/models/GMC_General_f_zpsdmfdgo2n.jpg http://i515.photobucket.com/albums/t357/Bogyoke/models/GMC_General_rh_zpst8calp8p.jpg http://i515.photobucket.com/albums/t357/Bogyoke/models/GMC_General_fl_zpsgczki4qc.jpg thanks for looking

I accidentally sanded out the front tow hook cap detail. I had to make a tool from an old sable brush by boring out with a sharp drill bit. Then pressing into front bumper location to replicate that detail again.
