Those are great kits, and you did it justice...very nicely done.
I noticed the lettering on the trunk emblem isn't filled in and (hard to tell) same goes for the lettering on the dog dishes and hood badge. This can still be remedied with little or no risk to the finished model.
I use the watercolors meant for children; less than $2 at Walmart.
Get the paint sort-of thick, then fill in the letters; if you color outside the lines, no big deal. After the paint is dry, dampen a business card and use the edge to wipe away any excess.
The same technique can be used for grilles...
Thanks guys, and thanks for the tip on painting the badges/wheels! I've just started experimenting with the Apple Barrel paints in the last couple of weeks, so far trying out various thicknesses and mixes on parts like grilles and wire wheels. I hadn't really thought about using the brighter colors for trim, but may revisit this model to do just that.
