    Thanks for the encouragement everybody!! Well me and the misses have sold our condo and are moving in a week. So, instead of polishing, I went another route I've never tried. Future.

    Trying to build and pack is proving to be hard. So It'll probably be awhile before the next post. Hopefully from my new workbench!!!!!! Hurray!!!!

    Progress tonight:

    Thanks everybody for the kind words and advice. Yes, I do think the white/green would be best.

    Progress. Everything was painted yesterday and started building today. Nothing spectacular really.....

    Thanks for checking it out!!

    The interior. First thought I would go two tone white/light green. Now I'm thinking dark green/light green. But would that be too much green?? Opinions???

    Decisions, decisions......

    So. This is the color of choice. Sanded the seam lines and sprayed dark gray primer to get a deeper effect. Waiting a couple days, then apply the clear.

    I've never done a "workbench" post, so here it goes.

    After building 2 Italeri and 1 Tamiya, I've decided to change it up and go domestic. This will be my first rubbed out paint job, so, if I mess up, you'll be right there with me. 😜

    I will be going traditional on this one, just a little lower than originally out of the box.

    #2 in my collection of cars I'll never own. This was your typical run-of-the-mill, fantastic fitting Tamiya kit. Highly recommend.
    Thanks for looking

    Thanks everyone for the kind words!!!!

    It's a Hasegawa kit I got off of Amazon. The kit goes together very well, the only problem I had was with the side vents near the door windows. The way they are molded on the tree makes them virtually impossible to remove. The side vents (rocker panels) need to be attached and filled before paint. I didn't put these on as I like the looks without them. It's a "curbside" kit. The engine cannot be seen under the rear hatch. So it's really up to you as to how much you detail it.
