Turned out great and the very nice with the little custom touch :)

As for you`re 1:1,a driver with some patina have more charm to me then nut and bolt restored garage queens.

This is beautiful Rick! The "BMF" work is fantastic! Being an ex-model railroader, I never gave Floquil much thought as an exterior color, but this looks good.

Thank you Sam & Mark.

Mark, this is the first time I've ever used Floquil paint for an exterior color,as it was the closest match I could find for the color of the 1:1 car. I usually just use the Floquil paints on interiors. First they changed the formula and stopped making the water based colors and now Testors dropped Floquil altogether.
