    Thanks Rusty. I can't say that I've painted any cars but I have spent more than my share of time under them. David G.

    Thank you Tom. It's a color that's rather out of character for me, which is exactly why I picked it! I like to step outside of my comfort zone occasionally, I find that it helps me grow as a model builder. Regarding the hood decal, I think you may be referring to area surrounding the hood vent. I'll be sure to double check the measurements in the decal opening. I'm hoping that the decal is actually cut out for the hood vent. The one for the air cleaner wasn't cut properly or not printed correctly. The center was solid white and it should have been transparent or cut out. I had to try to cut the center out after I soaked the decal off the backing to apply it. Needless to say it didn't go as well as I would have liked. Yeah, that hood graphic and vent are kind of a key feature of that model, so I'll definitely look into that. Thanks for the head's up. D Thanks Michael. I have the interior mostly done now. I should be able to post some more pics soon. David G.

    Thanks Guido. Thanks John, Two things I enjoy about building models are detail painting and weathering- three if you count completing them. Many of the basic weathering techniques I know I learned years ago from a book: How to Build Realistic Model Railroad Scenery The rest comes from a couple decades of practice. Mostly I use detail painting, washes and powdered pastels. For tutorials, I would recommend doing a Google search on weathering model cars and or military models. The two styles are a bit different but there are significant overlaps. Thanks again for your comment. David G.

    Excellent work! You're right, crazy amount of decals but probably easier than painting all that. David G.
