    Thank for you the kind words gentlemen,  I really enjoyed building it, minus the decal issue, fun kit.

    I used to build nothing but NASCAR kits when I was younger, but the lack of new NASCAR kits since Revell stopped , and I never liked the COT, and didnt want to build them in scale.   I am very much looking forward to the new NASCAR kits coming , cant wait

    Chevy Cruze AON/Lukoil Japan GP
    I guess I enjoyed building the first one so much, I just could not wait to get started on another one,  but this time, I am using a different color for the interior and chassis , the first one I used German Grey, the instructions tell you to use Mr Hobby/Color Burnt Iron, so I ordered a bottle of it, and its on its way from China, guessing the slow boat, and I cant very much tell I get the paint, so starting with body while I wait.

    And painted

    Getting started on the decals

    Completed decal work

    Going to give my opinion of the kit now that I have finished it, not withstanding the decal issues,  Beemax hit a home run with this kit, so far, two out the three kits( I have four , but on is still in Japan) the chassis was twisted a little bit, and the front bumper was out of shape, both were fixed in under 5 minutes with out the need for warm water.   The kit , for what it is(curbside) builds up with out issues, and repentants the subject when finished, its well worth the $25.  Its a fun kit to build.
    Of course, that is all opinion based, your mileage may vary.

    Ahh, forgot to post this one, its been finished for a short bit, I must be honest, this kit gave my skills a run for their money, or I just lost all my skill while working on it, not gonna say its a bad kit, I think it was more builder, anyways, at the hands of a much better builder, this a great kit and would awesome when finished.
