Very well done!  The Trumpeter kits are great (if pricey).  Only things I can find fault with on this, from fotos, are outside rear view mirror which seems large and big trunk hinges.  Other than that, your work with all facets of the model are spot on.  Great foil work here too.

Very nicely done. Very clean.

A couple of observations that take away from an otherwise outstanding build.

The side trim is on backwards. The seams should be at the shut lines of the doors not in the middle of the door and the quarter panel.

There seems to be a piece of clear sprue or something between windshield and the top of the dash in the interior shot keeping the interior tub from fitting all the way in.

Thanks. I knew about the trim, don't want to break it, so I let it be, never noticed the other issue.

The colour choices really work for the era too. Class build of a great kit. When I build mine, the
chrome on the exhaust laughed at the stripper, I ended up sanding it off.
I can recommend the kit too.

Overall this kit is good, there are some issues with fit. Yes, the chrome does not come off with any method I have tried other than sanding.
