Amazing paint finish and the interior looks great also.

Wow, great build.  Boy howdy can you lay down some paint!  May I ask what exact paint you used?  

One possible suggestion if you don't mind:  a little more black wash on the front and rear grilles.

Thank You, guys!

Monty: Paint is Tamiya TS 86 (Pure Red) spray can with Tamiya Surface Primer.  You are right. I have already given a washing to the grille but it would look better a little darker.

Regards

Ludwig

Nice one indeed.
I own a real 1963½ Galaxie 500XL with a 390 and Automatic myself and there are a lot of things that bothers me with this kit, the body proportions of the body looks great but the details has a lot to desire, for instance the convertible interior bucket so the rear panels are wrong, wrong tail light chrome detail and much too thick bezels, molded in headlight detail, missing emblem letters (on the decal sheet in the last issue tho') and some other things.

I have one in progress with the same color combo, I hope mine turns out half as good as yours. Great build.
