Love this build so much. The car looks great, very glad i chopped the roof off and also opened the doors. Not much space to attach hinges, so I used tape. bad idea, but no choice. 

Colour is by Splashpaints (they are always great). Hope you like it!

Beautiful build! Nice paint and workmanship overall! Did you have to re-chrome any of the parts? The chrome looks good for an obviously old kit. Nice work! Cool Thumbs Up Bow

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.

Looks like everybody has taken my adjective; "Thats beauiful!" But it is.  I love these old cars, have built one Duesenberg from that era, but have to chuckle to myself. A lot of people say that modern cars all look the same but those cars from the thirties are sure hard to tell apart too!  I can look at pics but never be able to identify the make.
