I picked this one up at Hobby Lobby on the cheap. My original plan was to build this with opening doors. I cut off the doors and it began to look really cool. Then the passenger side rocker broke then the passenger side a pillar broke. Then began issues with the paint. I had a 2 tone paint job. Tan on the top and this red on the bottom. Everything looked great until the red began to crack up over the passenger side rear quarter. Frustrated, I put it on the shelf...for 3 years. I then stripped the paint and ditched the 2 tone idea. I layed a decent base coat then came the clear. Along comes orange peel. UGH!!! I just wanted it done already. I struggled and did the best I could with the rest.

Thanks for looking.

I have had a Tamiya kit on the "Shelf of Doom" since 1985 because of recurring paint issues. I think I have the technology to finally finish it now, lol. Congratulations on getting this one to the finish line!

Cool build Steve, my pops had a '65 Bonneville this color when I was around 10. Loved that big ol' boat.
