Great details Ken on the engine and frame. I like how you have open up the doors. Based on how your doors look you really should do the same for the hood. Looking forward to your next update.

Looks great! Those are some good looking hinges! Where can I get some of those??

Dreamworks model products, look for rc airplane piano hinges. I order the smallest they carry and they come in 15 in. lengths. they can be easily cut to length with a razor saw or old scissors. good luck.

Thats a bright green !  Definitely shouts look at me 

One small thing I would change it the color of trim ring on wheels so it doesn't get lost looking at it . Maybe chrome or even white to accent that part imo
