Bill... awesome work on the decals. I can't wait to see it all together with clear on it now. I do have to ask are those the kit decals or the set from slixx??

thanks Chris, these are the decals from the kit, I was really nervous about them, I am not sure how old this kit is and we all know sometimes with older kits the decals can go south! they seem to be just fine, I am very relieved they are going on with out any trouble, I just have a few more to put on and it will be ready for clear, which is another point to worry about, sometimes the clear can do stupid stuff over decals, I have had this happen before! really hoping it goes well, I would hate for something to go wrong at this point!

Just gone through this build, and I'm speechless. This would have to be one of, if not the best, model I've seen. An outstanding display of workmanship.

I didn't see though, what scale is this?

Man-----I am just honored as hell that you would even want to build a model of the car---------------

it is my privelage Jerry, I would love to build the rear engine car too, but I have never seen one of those kits, love to get my hands on one! you need to get with revell and get them to re issue them! hehe, the car is all but completed, I have a few little things left to do, I figured I would wait till after the show to post the updates and finished pics in hopes of lureing you to the show :D do you know if you are going to make it in for show or not? really hoping to get you to sign the box top so I can frame it, that would be awesome!
