The model room is not back together yet but I did receive the decals have applied them. So its finished! I did have one hiccup when applying the right side stripe, cutting it at the back of the door. But I've learned throught the year to repair it as best possible and then leave it alone unless one wants to buy a new set of decals!  Here are a few pics. Thanks for looking! Cool

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.

That interior looks great in terms of detail and particularly the color. I've been searching for such a medium tan. Is this a paint designed for plastics or does it need a primer coat? Thanks.

Thanks, AMT! I appreciate your comment and question. I almost always use a primer especially with a gloss paint which this is. I had to flat it out a bit with dullcote once it dried. I sometimes don't use a primer with flat black, flat white, or with a satin but I would suggest a primer in most cases. Thanks for looking! Cool

Okay, so generally a primer and in this case dullcote is also key in acheiving the look. Thanks.
