Great job making this into a salt flats racer! If your photos were in black and white, it would look like an old cover car on one of those "little" magazines.

Mighty fine looking salt car.  Looks like it would easily make it into the 200 mph club.  Great job on the weathering.  I have built one salt car, but it is in need of a redo; it didn't come out like I really wanted.  Really love those salty dogs.

This is one of the neatest build-ups of the channeled version of this kit I've seen yet. I really like the color scheme, the aggressively cut down windshield, the half tarp and the lakes weathering. The car definitely has "the look."

Thanks again for the kind words gentlemen.

Try out the Tamiya powders for military models. They come in a three pack that looks like a makeup case and seem to stick better than regular pastels. I use the "snow" one for my salt, but the rust, soot, and metal ones have been useful many times. Useful to the point that they're the only thing I use except for a wash here and there lol

Nice build - amazing how much of an improvement you get just by chopping that windshield.  I'm surprised more builders don't do it.
