Thank you all for the comments. My first try was with paint but the blue cracked and crazied badly. This one is slixx decals with testors Hemi Orange on dupli-color medium blue BFM0382. It took a bunch of micro set to get the decals the behave but overall I happy with how it turned out. I will say fitting the chassis into the body on this kit is quite a chore as it fits real tight. Again, thanks for the kind words.
Speed City is indeed one of the best I have had dealings with. I would add Competition Resin, MAD, SMBC, Calnaga Castings, Harts Parts, Bandit Resin and just had a very nice buying experience with Fireball Resin.
Got the side windows installed and the motor wired up in the Cuda. I cut out the back of the grille and will add wire mesh and install the head lights tonight. Who knows, I may finish one of these yet this year
