Maybe not many comments cause it was still early in the progress and there have been a few of these on the board lately? Who knows? Nice paint choice though. What are your plans for the build? What are those two large pieces under the hoods? Custom fender skirts? I've got to get me one of these kits someday.

Later-

It's a good start. What color you thinking for inside? I'm thinking white and keep the white walls on it

It's not unusual to not get many (or none) replies when it's in the mock up stage. We get lots of those. Show us some work, like you have, and you'll see more interest, like you did. :D

I'd also like to know where the paint came from and what form it's in. The paint looks real smooth, are you airbrushing? I'd also like to offer you some building suggestions if you are interested. I'll take it to PM if you want.

I like the colour Ben, and agree with white interior/whitewalls. Great start, I've built a couple of these myself, it's a great kit :)

Modlbldr yes your right they are the custom fadeaway fenders, But im not using them as it requires you to mold them into the body, and this is pretty much just a slumpbuster build. So i'm not going to dramatic with it

You would be surprised at how well they fit ...I have done 3 now, and the fit of the kit, OOB is sweet!...The pontoons scared me, but when I did, they needed almost no filler...careful fitting!
