Starting this kit I got as part of my Fathers Day gifts . Decided to do the custom version on the side panel. Molding in the front and rear parts .

Thanks guys . No , I won’t be chopping the top . My past attempts at that have not been pretty . As Clint says “ a man has to know his limitations “ . :D

Just a quick mock up . Going to add another color and clear it . Optional engine parts do not fit well and must be modified . But there is always the possibility it could be me . :D

Looking good Ray. 

Some gold lace and a black edge fade might look good on that green. Just a passing thought. 😊

Car is done and pics will be under glass soon .

You and I might hold both ends of the record for building speed on this kit. You got yours done in four days (:blink:!), while I'm just about to finish up one I started over 50 years ago:wacko:

I think my color choices were not the best. I am partly color blind and it looked good to me when I did it but not sure now. I used BMF or it would have taken be only 3 days ! :D
