Very nice clean work. The foiling looks great against the colours.

That Tri-Five build of yours is lookin' great. Of course I'm a big gasser fan and would love to build a '56 gasser someday, but now I'm off the gasser building kick for awhile.

Well done sir. I would use a piece of white posterboard for taking pics on. You can get it at walmart for a buck, a poster size piece, will make your models more visible.

A very nicely done engine compartment. Did you use something special on the inner fender wells and other surrounding areas?
