Sweet ride, and awesome color! What scale is this?

 Thank you. A 1/8 scale classic first released in '63.

Great looking paint finish. I like the blue dot taillights and the quick change rearend. Think about scuffing the tread on the slicks?

They're scuffed. The Lindberg slicks are a different plastic, PVC, I don't know. But they don't sand worth a damn. I rounded the shoulders slightly and flat cleared them, too.

I think they look great. 

That's one sweet little hot rod you have their, even though it's a little bigger than most of us are used to. Did you follow along the channeling how-to from the first 2 issues on R+C Models or just do your own thing?

The Big D, well played 🤭

Thanks.  I just went with what I know from being a car guy. It's all pretty obvious when you get into it.
