Painted Monaco Orange with black vinyl top over a black interior and redlines.

I borrowed a technique from the military modelers and put a wash around all of the opening panels (doors, trunk basically). I think it adds a lot to the finished project.

Thanks!

I tend to agree that it's not that good of a kit but it just goes to show that anyone can make something decent out of it.

Very nice, goes to show with a little care those metal axle AMT kits can turn out to be great looking models.

BTW what your top made from??

John, that looks great!

I cannot comment on the kit. I own it, but it's not open. However your build looks fantastic. That build would make me want to build one.

Great work!

Wide masking tape with Evergreen strips for the chrome.
