A contest build. Is this for an online photo-contest or a real life judged on a table top contest?

If it is the latter, then one piece of advice I will offer, is to check out the first picture. See the round ejector pin marks? Getting rid of those is model building 101. The basics. If a judge sees those, your model might as well not be on the table, no matter how good it looks. The same goes for flash, mold lines, sprue tabs, etc.\

I look forward to seeing more. BTW, what kit is this?

It's a contest held by chevy cheesburger on youtube. I do plan on removing the, but I think they will be covered by some other stuff.

And the flash and everything else has been trimmed and sanded as much as possible. It's the MPC street charger.

aftermarket wheels. drilled the drum brakes to fit around the wheel shaft and painted them star spangled blue, trimmed the axles to fit in the wheel shaft and glued on the front wheels.
