Yes, I agree. An absolutely beautiful machine, and an interesting kit, too. I have the roadster version of this kit that I would like to get to one day. Looking forward to this one.

That straight 8 engine is cool. Nice colour paint, too.

Aaaarrgghhhhh! I have had that happen to me twice. Once was my own fault and the other time was because of old thinner that had partially evaporated over the years wihout my realizing it. Looks like you will possibly be able to sand yours out.

So, any news on this? Did you rid yourself of the "fish eyes"? I had hoped to see this thing back on track, Trainwreck.

It kind of looks like a cool rusty patina.
