Top notch! I'm impressed with the corrected deck hinges, that always looked so wrong to me.

Very Nice Andy! That top looks really good with it up! Hard to get those straight without that forward section looking "bent".

I wasn't brave enough to even start this kit and sold it. You've managed to neatly solve all the issues and wind up with a beautiful model.

Wow! Excellent build! The best one I've seen of the Skyliner. Fixing those hinges really helps the realism. I built one of the original kits back in the 1960's, and it was a bear to build for a teenager. Seeing yours makes me want to try it again!

Beautiful build of a very tough kit. Those multi piece bodies can be quite a challenge. Very nice clean work.

Great job on a rather difficult kit. I love the pastel blue and white. I have one somewhere in the stash molded in that nasty red plastic. One of these days I may get to it. Still, yours looks great.

Would someone be willing to email me these pics? All I see are red x's. PM me if you can help.

Very intuitive to use masking tape for the insulation under the hood...I assume it's masking tape?
