Really nice build! Sure would like to see some underhood pics and also what that T-bird chassis looks like underneath... but please take it inside for those pics!

Here you go. I forgot it has a Polar Lights Boss 429 in it too. The TBird chassis is close to a 70s Banjo chassis

Congratulations for another perfect build. Do you polish your paint? The finish is remarquable!

I use 2k automotive clear on them it lays down almost perfectly flat out of the gun. I only polish to knock down a dirt nib here or there.

What do you use for tires? When I compare the scale kit tires to pictures, they always look way too small relative to the real cars. I use the Monogram 1/24 tres whenever possible because they are larger but other kit tires seem too small. Am I missing something?

Larry sometimes I use PPP tires but most often I use the AMT tires that came in the kit I used for the chassis. I find tgem to be slightly wider than Monogram tires but smaller in diameter. I spend lots of time reshaping wheel openings to match pictures and really concentrate on placing the tires correctly in relation to the wheel openings.

I noticed that last night. The kit tires are shorter and wider than the Monograms. Current size, as far as I can find, is a 28 10 /15. I haven't scaled that out. but probably a little over an inch in 1/25.
