Nice job on that old gasser. That's one of the coolest Thames Panels I've seen. All of those old Revell kits were finicky to get together, but the patience required is worth the reward. Back in the day I thought those Revell gassers and hot rods were the coolest, and seeing your build brings back memories of them. Very cool!

Been a long time since I have seen one of those! You did a nice job and I really like your color choice. Is that a Y-block Ford motor? Although the closer I look it could be a Cad or Oldsmobile!!

Very nicely put together. Those old Revell kits were finicky, but very nice kits for their time.
