I've been away from the hobby for 15 years. This is the second kit I've built since returning. The color is Duplicolor Plymouth Red. For me, this kit went together rather well. The only problem that I ran into was during assembly of the glass. I cracked the rear window. Also, I forgot how much I dislike working with BMF. I am considering aluminum foil with elmers next time.

Here is my take on an iconic car.... I had to sacrifice a distributor, an antenna, several coats of paint, and extra time to the gods to build her, but she came out rather nice I think.
