Very nice. I did the exact kit recently in Desert Rose and White. Did the trim with Bare Metal Foil with zero issues. The trick in working with BMF is work slow and small sections.  I use Q-tips to rub in the foil and those extremely sharp Z series Xacto blades.

See my 55 BelAir in my Recent builds thread.

Outstanding work. Hopefully we'll see you at our club meeting one day. Look for the Treasure Valley Car Modelers on Facebook. Our meeting are first Thursday of the month at the Hobby Town USA at 6pm.

Asmir, this is a beautiful model, inspirational build and finish.

I'm in a COVID19 lock-down rut at the moment, lacking 'drive' so to speak, so thank you.

Thank you Sir. I appreciate it very much. Hope you can get out of the "rut" and get some styrine built.

Very nice looking '55 Bel Air, Asmir.  I recently built this kit, and I had a heck of a time with the fit, if I remember correctly.

Jim,

Thank you. I did struggle a little bit but it went together after some manipulation.

Very pretty! I have that kit waiting on a shelf and you have have just convinced me what my next build will be. I did notice a warp issue on the interior bucket on my kit. Could you give me a heads up on any issues you had? Thank you for sharing Asmir.
