I'm loving this build... I like the drag radials on the back... not to highjack your thread, this is one I did earlier this year...

Thanks Tyrone, that means a lot to hear from you. Your builds are always super clean. Love the Green on the Nova's this model.

Bet you guys are wondering what happened to this build, lol.  Well, Christmas time came, and since my wife is from up North, we had to go up there for Christmas with her family, so there was my week and a half of Christmas Vacation. I did get back to the bench yesterday evening and got the body cleared, polished, and my BMF work done.

I don't know how I have gone this long without a dehydrator, lol. I cleared this thing at about 4:30pm, and by 8:00pm I was ready to polish and good to go.

All that is left to put the glass in, detail my panel lines, paint the radiator support and under hood area black, put the photo etch stuff on, and it will be ready to put onto the chassis.

Awesome and inspirational !!!

Beautiful paint job there Scott! 

Yup - a real winner!

Thank you guys! I'm super excited about getting this closer to being done. I'm anxious to see this one finished. Probably going to be my best, most detailed build to date.

Nice build Scott, that paint came out nice, personally I'm not liking the colour, but you did a fabulous job on it.

The color looks awesome in person. I'm taking my pics currently on the workbench with my cell phone, so it messes with the hue. I'm going to take the under glass pics with my DSLR.

Looks great, should be fun to see that on tables at the SCMA show in 2 weeks. 

 

Make sure you save your lunch money, I will be there with a bunch of kits to sell off!

I did get a little done last night. I got my panel lines washed, the radiator support on the body painted, all of the glass polished and in, and some of the photo-etched emblems detailed and installed.

Continue to impress with the details Scott! That is looking fantastic.

 

And despite what a wife might say, you can never have too many models!

Don't worry, you have surpassed my skill level already. Very impressive build and details on this model, your patience and attention to getting the details correct is what sets you apart from some of us. I have never built a model with such detail and accuracy as my builds don't make it to model shows, they are for me and my model room.

I can’t say enough good things about this build – I like it more each time I look at it.  Really impressive work.

Heading over to see this one now......! Dude...wow is all I can muster!!!!

Lol, thanks fellas. I have to say, I probably have had the most fun building this one. Everything went together without issue. Granted, I had to hack the body to death on the rear fender wells to fit the massive radials, but it went smoothly the entire process.
