Many of us older folks may have very well built kit some years ago . I know I did . Decided I wanted to take a crack at it again . This one isn’t too much better . I had some problems with this kit but I won’t blame the kit but rather blame myself . I did kind of rush it because I had a different kit I wanted to work on.  Anyway , I wanted to do it as the box art . Was surprised to see the side decal so darn small . Painted it with Tamiya TS - 20 Metallic Green and WLC as the clear coat . Not great but should look ok on the shelf .

Looks pretty dang good from here! Beautiful shade of green, I need to get some of that! Can't help but wonder why you didn't pull the wide black stripe down over the hood and deck lid? I think that would look "racy"!

Well done Ray, especially for a quick build.  I agree about the decals and wonder why they're not bigger.  Is that stance straight out of the kit or did you raise it?  I really didn't have a desire to pick up this kit, but seeing yours now has me thinking maybe I need one.

I’ve almost bought this kit a couple times but didn’t. Yours makes me want it! You did a great job making it pop. Love that stance! 👍
