Ken, I got really lucky on this kit. Yes, this one is the Johan Snaptite kit, no engine and low level detail.

This one was a junk-yard paint bomb off ebay, missing front grill and bumpers. Lucky to have ordered those from Modelhaus one of the last days they were taking orders a few months ago, and lucky they must have had them in stock since I got them so quickly decided to move this one up on the build list.

You are correct. I did read the title wrong. 

This means i'll have to buy my friend a case of beer to replace the one I had "won". 

plus one to pay him for the bet you lost😂😈

Possibly the most unappreciated car Ford ever built.A beautiful car along with its sister Montego GT. You did that car justice.Perfect paint perfect stance perfect tire size. Put some sport mirrors on it and put it front and center where it belongs! Way to go.

Cool effect Dave! At first glance, I thought I was looking at another "shiny" black paint job.

The paint fade on the side is perfectly executed.

Another one of my favorite paint jobs.... blue side panels and flames are auto touch up paint decanted and sprayed with an airbrush the rest are decals.

Here's a couple from last year, The Predicta is Dupli-Color Anodiized Red over silver with a few clear coats. The Hudson is Dark Cranberry with several coats of clear.

Ron, that Buick is a real knock-out.

I much prefer the toned down look of the '60 to the '59. Same with the Cadillacs from those years.
