Hey everybody, this is mine and Dad's second model. We have been working on this for a couple of months now. The body is the same molded colour that came with the kit.

I did the window trim painting and Dad did the body trim and the lights.

I did a bit of the interior painting and Dad did the seat-belts. Those seat-belts were a nightmare!

I've still got a while to go on my painting skills, but I'm getting there as I'm only an eleven year old.

Thank you for looking!

Very nice! You'll develop your skills over time, you seem to be ahead of the average 11 year old for sure! A great sidebar is that building models will build much more character than playing video games!

Keep up the great work!

Glad to see you posting your work and building with your Dad rocks! That's how I got started. B)

Your painting skills ARE looking good at your age. One trick for painting trim is to use some masking tape, like 3M painters tape, along the edges and then you can just slop the paint on. ;)

Thank you, the seat-belts were a part of the kit. They had to be cut from a sheet of thin plastic sheet.
