    If you did those white walls by hand I think that is outstanding work.
    I have chucked up the tire on an old wheel in a drill and stabilized it on the bench and barely pulled the trigger to turn slowly. Then braced my arm off the bench with and Xacto knife and scraped the edge to clean it up. It turned out pretty good.
    You could always go put black wall or white letter tires on the real one LOL...

    I'm glad you weren't offended because that wasn't my intent. The build is so realistic I just wanted to give some info on how the car is put together.

    The weathering is outstanding but I think leaving the wheel house on was a mistake.
    When the fender is removed there are only a couple of bolts that hold it to the radiator support and so it would be hanging down and sitting on the tire not up in place all perky and tidy like that.
    I am currently repainting my 1 to 1 so I have become intimately familiar with how the front sheet metal is assembled.

    Those are some the best worm gear hose clamps I've ever seen modeled Chris.
    Did they really use the A-N fittings and then hose clamp the hose on?

    You are doing great on this. I always like to see 1 to 1 models.
    Be careful about sanding on a metallic paint, some times you change the way the metallic looks. When spraying the final coats of a metallic paint the bits of metal will settle in with the base color of the paint and usually float up to the surface a little. If you sand on it, the metallic deeper in the paint may not look the same.
    Its best to get a good coverage of the metallic color and then put an extra coat of clear on than what you normally do and polish it up real good without going through the clear.
    The only other suggestion I would give on an otherwise outstanding model is consider making the hinges on the hatch a little smaller. Because of the short angle needed for it to be open I don't think they need the big droop you have right now.
    I built a model of my Nova and now I am painting the big one to look more like the model.

    I just checked my back order status on the three kits I pre-ordered. It now has moved out for a fourth time. Now it went from June to September.
    Any updates as to why it keeps getting pushed out?

    That is terrible. I am sure you can harvest some of the sub assemblies for other builds or you could make one of the most awesome wrecked race car builds ever...
