Some of the things I tried on this build might have been a bit over my head, so that's why some things look Mickey Mouse :lol: But I had a good time building it.

Thanks for looking!

That's sweet! I like those colors a lot! You did fantastic job with it, nice paint and detail. Stance looks good too, I'm a huge fan of Gassers.

Another nice asphalt burning powerhouse Andy. Glad you made it to the line. Looks good. I'm also glad you learned a few things. Sometimes I don't have the courage to experiment with new techniques or products if everything else is going well.

That's a tough kit to begin with and you did it justice. The two tone paint looks great and one thing often over looked are the shiny strips on the front fenders and doors on Bel Air models, they get painted over. Nice job with the foil. I like the chassis and really like the exhaust cut-outs.

Thanks Ron! For foiling, I just went by what was on the box. I wanted to make the exhaust cut-outs actually functional but I didn't have time for that (I finished on the last day of the CBP).
