Back again guys.

 

I managed a little trip outside today to get some photos.

They always seem to look a little better in natural light.

 

Thanks for viewing.

Absolutely beautiful. It really does look like a real car! I wonder if any engineers, the master builders who carved the moulds of these kits ever visit this forum hoping one day they will see 'The Build' that makes all their effort worthwhile and think, "My work here is done"  haha!

After following along on your WIP, I can't say I am surprised at how nicely you turned this one out. Beautiful paint, color combos, and outstanding attention to detail.

Your work in general is a great example of making each part "a model within a model."

Looks even better outside ; the brightwork plays better against the dark recesses (esp. the grilles) . 

That colour combo really stands out in the natural lighting , too .

Simply stunning!  I learned to drive in this car, mom's red with back interior.  You absolutely nailed it and brought back many great memories.

I have no problem with that.

All of my builds are for public consumption. ;)

I am.

I would have most likely been disappointed with everything else turning out so well and knowing that the paint wasn't up to my standards.

Wow! Superb! I love watching a model come together and seeing the results!

It May very well be the prettiest in your collection, but isn’t that the goal? Every model is just practice for the next one! So you achieved the goal of raising your game with each car! Build on!

Steve,

That is an outstanding build! I also read through your WIP post and was impressed with all of the work you put into this. I urge folks to look at that post, too, to see the incredible work you did on the interior (especially the dashboard).

The shine on this model is amazing, so here is my one question for you. What's your process for polishing the model? What kind of polish do you use, what do you apply it with, and what's the technique? (Sorry, I guess that was more than one question!)

Thanks,

Bart

You outdid yourself with this one, Steve.  A friend had one of these in high school so I know your replica is totally spot on!  Congratulations on a superb effort.
