The window set in my kit seems to seat well enough. I already cut the locating pins out from the inside of the roof because I didn't like the way that they visually intruded into the interior like two inverted emergency beacons. So it's a little loose but still traps fairly well between the body and interior. Normally I do use Micro Kristal Klear PVA to tack these canopy-style glass inserts in place to prevent shifting and rattles after assembly. I'm still toying with the idea of cutting the windows loose from the roof runners and gluing them in separately so I can add a little more detail to the headliner. There are a couple of nice sun visors and some trim molding cast into the ceiling that I'd like to accentuate.
Interesting story about the kit, I'm glad Mr. Burkett ponied up for the parts. I'm also glad that I supported his decision by purchasing the kit. So many times people say "If they would spend a little money to (update, replace, remold, retool) and release this kit, I would buy two or three." and probably eighty percent of those who say that don't even buy one.
For getting the front to fit as well as it does I have to give credit to @bisc63 aka Rusty Shackleford for the providing me advise on how to file it for a better fit. The corrections I made did improve the fit but still left a 1 or 2 mm gap between the hood and grille which I was prepared to live with. Most other build ups I've seen photos of in my research showed the same gap so I counted it as a design flaw and decided to move on. Once I thought about it, the advice Rusty offered made perfect sense and worked like a charm.
Regarding an antenna, I'm not even sure I'm going to place one. Most of the photos I've seen in my research show the antenna just inboard and slightly forward of the right sideview mirror. It shows up often enough in this location that I believe that this would likely be the factory configuration. At scale, adding an antenna so close to the sideview mirror would probably look awkward and crowded and twin swept-back antennae on the rear of the car are in my mind, a bit cliché. So at least for the time being, I think I've decided against an antenna.
Thanks for posting the pic, that green is a great color for the car. It sounds like you have plans to build a version of each of the main styles offered. That would be a cool set to have. I considered building this one as a Crown Landau. While I was working out the best way to make the stainless steel roof, I discovered the Tamiya TS-40 Metallic Black at my LHS and decided I liked that better. And it would be easier to work with.
I always enjoy your posts Charlie, thanks for taking the time to write them.
