Oh! And it’s a small block car but the kit came with Big block valve covers! 

How are the rest of the parts for accuracy, ie the   Intake, carbs, headers?

The entire engine is terrible, honestly. Including the headers...

The headers are just primed, they will end up better than this, but as you can see, the kit has an automatic and is just all around a poor representation of the car.. futurattraction has a beautiful Small Block -lenco kit that I have coming. I’m going to have to pretty much start over on this one, had a paint glitch that is beyond repair, so....yay.

I'm liking what I see here. I'm curious what manufacturer paint are you using. I tired of seeing my white models turning yellow over the years. nice shade of white and red. what have you been using?

The white is testors classic white right out of the can. The red is Italian red decanted and SHOT (did I type something else? Why the edit?) through an airbrush.

Clear is Duplicolor 1K clear, again, right out of the can. I polish with 5000 grit paper and use a mild rubbing compound then wax. Nothing fancy. I don’t yet know if there will be any yellowing issues, this is the first white car I’ve used that clear on. My models are in individual cases away from direct sun, so I usually have no problem with that.

No idea. Typo?
