Finally managed to finish this one!,it fought me all the way!the quality of the kit is awesome,i ended up repainting it 6 times and i'm still not happy with the finish but I just wanted off my work bench!.Paint is Chrysler Electric blue with a couple coats of Duplicolor clear,i left off the rear decals,because one day i'll strip it and repaint it again.thx for looking in.

Excellent job! And the paint looks fine from here.

This is one of those cars that is getting old enough to appeal to me - you don't see the kit that often these days though.

I had this kit years ago, wish I knew what happened to it. 

I love wagons. Have had a few, my last was a 93 VW Passat VR6, modded like crazy. 

Wifey currently drives a Volvo XC90.

 

Love your build, looks like one of the expensive AutoArt diecasts.

Looks great, love that blue. I finally built mine late last year after stripping the 20 year old paintjob that failed and I put it back in the box for another day, luckily the new paint came out well. Now these kits are rare, hard to find, and pretty cool to see built! I have fresh decals to build the BTCC wagon I've never started but will build this year.

Pretty sweet wagon. Looks a lot better than the 1/1 my boss used to have. LOL

Very nice, curtis....if you are really going to rebuild it, I think lowering suspensions would give a even better look.

Congratulations.

I agree the rear sits a little high,something somewhere didn't line up,luckily I have a couple more of these in the stash I can try and troubleshoot with.
