Loving this project. The vacu-formed wheel arch panels are fantastic.  What sealer did you use on the decals? Looks like it really worked!

I've been using Testors Decal Bonder for years only because it has always worked for me , why change if it works right ? Microscale also makes a brushable sealer and some guys just spray them with clear before applying them .

A very clean build. 

The forward rake and thinned out wheel spokes are subtle but very effective modifications. I'm really looking forward to seeing yours completed.

 

I rebuilt the same car, from a glue bomb, years back. I also made it a store display to sit on. It's a close copy of the real thing, but with a slimmer base. Here's a shot of it, alongside a couple of others I made.

I'm a big fan of early Monogram kits, they have a look all their own.
