I haven't built a model from the box in, well since God was a boy. But I finished one last night.
Since getting older (and I'm older than dirt) I don't have the abilities to do extensive detailing. So most of my builds are pretty much "box stock" with minimal detailing. I normally try to build replicas of some 1:1 car, but this latest build is not a replica. It is based on a real individual, but the model is pure imagination. More of a "show" car than what you would really see at the strip.
The build combines an AMT "Flying Wedge" kit, Testors Dark Cherry Pearl paint, and decals from SLIXX.
