John, I just had to do a bing search to see the pics of the real thing.  You ARE killing the details of this.  I want to buy stock in the faux rivet decal company (Archer I think? ) as you're going to need sheets and sheets of them. I never realized how much detail there is in the real one.  This has to be one of the ambitious builds you've undertaken to date.  I especially like your eye for design details,  1 example being the seat support and it's shape/curvature that you picked up beautifully.  Such a build!   cheers, tim

You're builds are always inspirational, but just looking at all those holes makes my wrist hurt thinking about drilling them. Nice work

I hereby tender my resignation to the modeling community.   ;)

That is incredible work.  Such attention to detail.  And that natural metal finish ... :o

W T H !!!!  Where have I been? Just getting caught up on this riveting build and I must say you're been a busy Johnny. When I saw the original car picture in the first post, I almost jumped out of my seat in anticipation and excitement. You certainly haven't left one detail out on this brother. Keep after it.

That's pretty awesome work.  Not easy painting it with Alclad.  That stuff shows up every little flaw unless you do neat work like you have done.  Great job!

Incredible work! Just wondering - are you going to give it that “brushed” look, or keep it shiny?

It will be weathered after I apply the decals.....it won’t be shinny

Johnny Boy... as usual you have crushed the Alclad work out of the park my friend. This thing is looking Mighty Fine.  I don't think there is a detail you have missed. Looking forward to your next epic update!!

I have GOT to ask this question....is there anything you CAN'T do in modeling??? It seems there's nothing that's out of your reach John. Terrific modeling.

Hello......thank you all so very much for the kind comments ......I really do appreciate them:)........I weathered the body with a light wash to tone down the Alclad......I got the interior mocked-up nothing glued in place yet.......I made and detailed the interior and used some "Pro Tech" nut and bolt ends to dress it up a little .......I made the dual steering wheels and got those attached.......thanks for looking
