Beautiful!  I only wish I had the patience to do this type of build.

How did I miss this!!!! Your style is totally unique and I've denied myself of a great aesthetic treat for lo these many months. Shame, shame, shame on me. Embarrassed

Top up or down, the proportions and stance are gorgeous and I love the tomato red and tan combo.

Big thumbzupz, Dave! Thumbs UpThumbs UpBow

Thank you "chromecop"Thumbs Up.

This was my very last Scratch-build project on this planet.

As I push closer and closer to 80 years old there are other projects I have let go to the wayside and i would like to finish them before my "EXPIRATION DATE" Smile.

Next year, 2020, will be my 70th year of model building. Started in 1950!!

Beautiful job Dave. I noticed your chrome doesn't have that toy look to it, did you spay it with a smoke clear coat, or something else like silver spray and a plating kit?

 

Dave, make sure that "EXPIRATION DATE" takes it time.

Wow. Another winner, Dave. Proportions are dead on!

This is doing what I want to do when I do what I want.
