Nice one! I would love to get a few surfboards for the '48 Woody I am working on now. I did notice that about the hinges being body color on some of the photos I have been viewing. I thought it looked a little odd at first and then I realized they are metal, so it makes sense.
Looks good! I like your choices. I just found out today about this new release and Hobby Lobby is carrying it! I went to get one and found the new Revell Model A instead. I was looking for that also. Maybe next time, seems they were sold out.
I like every version I have seen so far of this kit including yours. I have said my first one will be box stock but, I think this one was made to kit bash. Can not wait to see your next one, like the idea of the flat head.
