My final build for 2020!

mostly box stock with plug wires added and Cadillac air cleaner from Replicas.

Paint is Ford Diamond green with some fox pearl added which doesn’t show well with pics. A dark green interior added for contrast and the wheels were sprayed with tamiya smoke to tone down brightness. I got this tip from fellow modeller Steve Hayden.

As has been mentioned before the kit is very well engineered and build up quickly, great slump buster kit.

I hope you enjoy.

Lookin good!  I built one of these and used the chassis and drivetrain on another build. I agree that it’s well engineered and goes together well for a fun build. It’s the type of new kit we need for new builders

Hi Russell !!  That is a beautiful build sir. Love the colour, you always have great/different colours on your builds. I may be bias, but I really like the treatment on the wheels, looks fantastic! Hope we can get together soon. All the best for 2021.

Cheers, Steve

Beautiful looking build. The color on the screen almost looks white. I like your idea to tone down the wheels shine.

I was thinking the same thing Phil.

Thanks all for the comments and yes Steve and Phil you both should build yours!

Also forgot to mention my new favourite clear is the Mr Hobby super clear with uv. It dries super hard and fast and levels out great on its own very little polishing needed.

Hello Russell, thanks for the info on the Mr. Hobby clear. I got some a few weeks ago but have not tried it yet. Now I’m looking forward to giving it a try.
