Very nice build! I've always loved cars from this era and this one fits in perfectly! Btw, what was the colour you used to do the yellow? so far it's the most accurate I've seen

Dominik, you've done a remarkable job fixing all the flaws in this old kit, so it's no surprise that it turned out so well.  Your penchant for getting the details right and your use of period-correct shades and colors have resulted in one of the nicest builds of that kit that I've ever seen.

Hello Dominik, I have the same kit and I was wondering if you could describe a little more about the windows please. 

On the rear window I was thinking of cutting the glass to fit from the outside to make it fit a little more flush. Is that what you did?

In order to do what I was thinking I would have to remove the two posts first and carefully remove the glass around the edges of the clear plastic until it fits then replicate the two posts removed earlier. Is that about what you did on your model? It's beautiful by the way. 

Thank you. 

Tom
