It doesn't look like the normal ModelHaus quality. (?)

It has been painted 4x before,the last was with 2k which i had to strip back,that is why its a bit rough...

Ouch! What did you strip it with to make it look like a bad recast? Wire stripper wheel? ;)

I'm sure it'll end up well anyways. I love those -65 longroofs myself too.

nice job on it all! really moving along on it. nice detail on the motor. will be a really interesting build when finished. just a side note, I think with that color, it would really set it off if you painted the roof white. just a thought.

Looking real good in my books and being a wagon is even better. Only wish I could stick to a project long enough to finish it. Looking forward to seeing more of it.
