Thanks fellows.

The decal for the hood was a doozy. It is probably my imagination, but the decals seemed not to be symmetrical. It can pass muster from a distance, but there are a lot of flaws.

Nice work. Was there a real racer this is patterned after?

Thanks everyone.

Mitch; Yes, there are a couple of variations that saw the race track. This one is the closest to what I'm putting together.

You're doing a great job modeling it Cole. Those large decals are hard to get right and you did a great job with them.

you must have some steady hands and a fair amount of patience Cole

looking at the decals in place, it looks as if they could have been a nightmare at any time !!

Looking great. As with the others, the big decals are tough, and yours look perfect. Nice work!!

Thanks everyone.
Finally, some progress to report. The front end is complete such as it is. The interior is nearly done. I will be adding a harness for the drivers seat. The other seat will not be installed.

Very good decal work, excellent in truth.  I don't envy you the seat harness work, tedious for sure.

Yeah, if you can get that together, I would like to commission you to make up a handful of sets for me.

That's quite a harness set up. Can't wait to see it done.

Nice harnesses. I have used theirs in the past. Yes it is tedious and fine work, but they sure do look nice when done!!

The basic set up for the harness. The maker did a nice job of providing alignment holes for the buckle. That gives you the option of having the harness fastened or not. The shoulder belt adjusters have some very small PE that the belts will get threaded between.





The body is now finished. I opted for the hatch back cover? which will cover up a very empty rear section of the cabin. The glass has separate side windows, so I chose to leave the windows "rolled down".
