    No, the wash will settle in the "nooks and crannies" and flow away from the high points.

    Very nice work.
    But for me, there's only one Batmobile, and that's the TV series car. All the others pale by comparison.

    Beautiful car! Beautiful model!

    I also remember the scissors/knife man, the junk man, and even the fruit man... they all came by regularly, all used horse-drawn wagons as they went through the alleys. And it's not like I grew up in the 1920s or something...yes, this was being done where I lived in Chicago well into the mid to late 60s.
    I can still remember the fruit man saying in his loud voice, "Freestone peaches! Four pounds, one dollar!" as he slowly went down the alley. Another cool childhood memory.

    Ok, not exactly lost words from our childhood... but do any of you guys remember S&H "Green Stamps?"
    Grocery stores, gas stations, and other retail outlets used to give them out–the number of stamps depending on the dollar amount you spent. You would collect them in albums, and they were redeemable for all sorts of things... the more stamps you had saved up, the more expensive "reward" you could claim. My mom was a Green Stamp collector... I remember helping her lick those stamps and placing them in the albums. Great childhood memory...

    Nice!

    I agree with Tulio... a black wash on the grillle (and on the wheels) would work wonders. But aside from that, a very nice "old school" hot rod.

    It's ground beef and seasonings shaped in the form of a "steak" and usually served with brown gravy. It's basically just a variation of a hamburger patty.

    Looks real nice, Frank.

    It's a shame that all of that detail won't be visible on the finished model.
    But I'm sure you'll use this in a cool diorama.

    He didn't say he didn't polish it.
