Finished the coupe this morning.  













The kit had the typical issues that are present with old AMT kits; minor warping of the frame and a couple of the parts.  There was nothing unusual and the kit went together relatively well.  I just noticed that I have not mounted the license plate.  That will get done later today.

Nice coupe John. Did you clear coat the Nail Polish? Just curious.

Thanks Buck. Yes, I did clear coat, but instead of high gloss I used semi-gloss. I like the effect better on a car of the 40s era.

Looks really good John. What color is the interior? It kinda looks like dark brown on my display, but it might be black.

Thanks for the comments guys. Dave, I'm not real proud of the interior. It is hand painted leather and did not turn out as well as I wanted. Got in a hurry.

Very nice Plymouth John. The sheen does make it look right for a car on the streets from that era. I like this as much as a high shine car. It's the intent that matters in my opinion.
