    If I were 12 that would be what i'd want on Christmas day.

    A little gloopy on the clearcoat and the hood decal should have been painted instead. But, nice color choice and subject.
     
     
    Every build gets a little better..

    Great use of these decals.

    Since moving back to Mass all my models have been in storage since May. Now that's just 9 months and I already know what you mean.
  5. Dragline added a post in a topic How many people fully detail a model?   

    Like many here it varies. I take breaks between detailed builds to knock out a Dave Deal or Tom Daniel build. Then go right back at a full detail build with all the bells and whistles. For me it's tough to do "Obsessive" detail builds for every kit that comes across the bench. It also depends on the vehicle. A Top Fuel digger or Funny car just begs for ignition, fuel and other goodies. But I don't think I've built anything in quite a while where I didn't scratch build a piece or two or at least add ignition wiring.

    So well executed. The seamless nature of the mod is so impressive. Well done.

    I'll have to check on that JC.  As for that i am not certain as I never built the Stewart kit but it sure looks identical.. What I do know is this.
    What is here was very nice. The kit went together like a breeze. Now i'm a Vet so some folks may find this kit tough. But the decals went nice and accepted solvent for the door jambs easily.  I'll post better pics eventually but this is a positively Wonderful kit. it doesn't fall together mind you. But it's one of the greats of our era.
    For a 2 week after work build it went together well and I have to tie up the exhaust [tough] and a few detail items box stockers won't encounter. But i'm pleased and ordered 2 more for the shelf. I may not get to them but I wanted a couple of extras in case decal options came about.
    A winner in my eyes...............

    Got this kit a couple of weeks ago HOT of the press. I had a week to spare so I plunged in. I want to thank R2 for continuing such a bang up job on these molds. This was such a joy to build and flash free. I never built this new so I was not certain what to expect but this is high water stuff here. I could go on but i digress.
    Duplicolor gloss white over their filler primer. I opened the trunk, wired the plugs, hooked up the battery and there is a photo etched seat belt in there. I made a safety net according to the manual but I used seat belt material and wooden ship rigging instead of a book of matches. I have some weathering to do but i used the R&MofM drag car tire painting set for the GoodYear logo's. I then sanded them down a tad. They look good and the weathering [Vallejo powders] should finish it off nicely. I stripped and re-shot the bumpers in Alclad. I made the hood hold down as per the reference photos but have to make the bungee cord. There's more but the pics speak.

    Had to become a member to get on the list. Spotmodel is a great place if you want to spend money that's for certain.

    Better than my first scale model by leaps and bounds.
