Very believable weathering job. Looks like an old survivor that someone is trying to breathe life back into.

Man! What a sharp build.  I'd swear I've seen that car out a Famoso Dragstrip.

Im not a fan in general of the kit. But, boy did you do a nice job on it. I'm surprised how much I like it.

The first and a few of the other pictures almost look like a street scene rather than a model. Your body finish is very realistic looking. Some quarters a couple of fenders and doors it will be good as new.
