The fact that the rust is on the model is where it's at on the real car is a part of the reality ilusion. The model rusts where it would in the real life, thus helping me to cheat you into the whole reality deal.
Jo Han's kits are wrong as they are scaled to fit a certain size box.
Get in touch with Tom, he'll send you a roof that fits. In retrospective, the next time I'd do that conversion I'll use a convertible to do so.
Might be that Tom would cast it, but I don't really want to send it off, wait, get back, blabla. And who knows if I even did a good enough job crafting the roof on. I certainly did a good job for what I'll do with it, but good enough for a product regardless of how low the quantity might be?
Besides, I already filled the side trim holes, and that how I needed it, what to do with it now? Fill the rest? Rip it out? No Sir. Not gonna' happen.
I was scared of failing too, but I thought for quite a while and I came up with a solution that was quite easy and with minimal sanding and filling. It took me only two evenings to get the roof on the Revell body.
