Very nice Andy!

If this is true "Argyle Blue", you need to get some outdoor photographs!

This is one of those colors that just glows in natural light.

Nice.... well done.  I have that kit, looks daunting with all that chrome.  Like how you weathered the bottom.

Awesome! I'm working on the hardtop version, so I have a good idea how much work you put into that. The paint is gorgeous, and the extra detailing really paid off.

Beautiful looking build. Great looking paint and finish. The detailing of the chassis gives it a lot of depth. Perfect engine detailing. What's up with the driver's windshield wiper ?

Well done model of an American icon!  Truly the zenith of the '50s.

Nice recovery. I see in the earlier pictures it is sitting at rest.
