That's one very realistic build. The sheen/shine on the paint is just right.

Now this is what I like to see............a very nice and clean mid '60's Mopar build! I love these types of cars and they're just too far and between seen these days. That's a good color choice for that too.......nice and subtle and just blends right in with the '60's. B)

I agree with Bill - looks great with your colour choices.

Ditto!

 The daylight makes your excellent build look 1:1

Nice work Mark!

These kits are particularly difficult to restore due to the severe "brittleness" of the metallic gold plastic that they were molded in.

The interior of this kit is particularly fun with the folding front seats and separate gauge faces.

The "rattan" door panel and seat back trim is a little difficult to recreate with the fine engraving on them, but it can look pretty realistic with a light wash.

Beautiful restoration!

Quite nice. What kit is that?

The original MPC 1965 Dodge Monaco kit.

Don't know how I missed this one earlier. It looks just like a nicely aged 1:1. The interior is a stunner.
