Good progress Gareth, body and roof colour combo looks great.

My version of this kit looks pretty similar. I have plenty on the go at present, but you are making me think about it a bit more.

Thanks, Nigel. Get it done, I'd love to see it. I do a bit at a time, roof yesterday, body today. I'll assemble the engine tomorrow and paint it the next.

Doors, if you want me to go and take any pictures of my car, interior, engine etc... just ask. It's an eerie feeling seeing you build a green Nova with a white vinyl roof! You've done a fantastic job so far, hope my efforts are as good.

Yes, pretty much, Lol. I didn't expect the Jade Green to look so identical to your car, I was expecting it to come out looking a lot darker. It was a left over can of paint from a previous build, not being able to get the same beige for the roof and liking the white on green look it kind of turned into your car! One thing will be different though is the Magnum 500/Rostyle wheels I'm going with.

Haha!! Honestly, it's not intentional, but yeah, I can imagine it being weird seeing someone build a car in the same combo, xD

Looks great. I like the color and paint finish. The vinyl roof looks very nice also.

Hi Gareth, that is a killer colour combo... whoa, say that fast 5 times. I would say perfect colours, beautiful work. 
The “satin black or body colour window trim” conversation didn’t get as heated as I would have thought. Some of these threads have me laughing out load. I love it. 
Cheers, Steve

I agree what has  already been said Gareth . This car looks good. 

Very close to the same color green as my brother did the Ventura kit in back in the 70's.

Thanks, guys. It's been a great kit to work with so far. It has well defined trim detail which makes BMF super easy. The 'NOVA' script on the front wings looks too big, but it makes them easy to chrome:)

haha! Yep, it can snowball off a cliff sometimes, but this one has stayed very much on topic surprisingly.
