Just want to show my first finished model after not being in this hobby for 20 years.

Model Kit is this one:

It has been painted with Porsche Turquoise Green Metallic from Zero Paints followed by a 2-part clearcoat from Standox. Interior was airbrushed with self-mixed greens (Vallejo colors). Carpets were flocked and seat belts created with PE parts from Model Car Garage with Tamiya masking tape.

Looks great! You obviously haven't forgotten how to build model cars in the last twenty years! I really like the color choice.

Very nice and clean. Reminds me of one I did in Autumn Gold that Frank LeQue has now. Definately one of AMT's finist issues. The Chevy II is another one

of their better ones too (66/67) model...
