Well that was an exercise in a few lessons of what to do and what not to. Thanks to all who followed along and encouraged me with your feed back and supportive comments.

You may not be totally happy with it but it sure looks great to me Curt. Nice one.

Thanks Buck, Al. It is what it is, and part of modelling is experimenting and learning new things.

That's pretty Freaking wild Curtis! Way to make an over priced kit be worthwhile building. The interior colour really brings it nicely together. You're really enjoying the laces these days. Great stuff!

Thought i'd posted on this ... apparently not lol


Looks great Curt, Wasn't sure about the wheels at first in the build thread, but now they're on and painted they certainly look the part...

The lace technique gives the body work a nice constant effect but is random at the same time ... and totally unique of course.

overall a nice looking motor matey.

I'm used to the paint job and really like it in its finished state. The matte or dk. grey parts aren't as great as I thought they'd be. Just my taste. Everything else, interior shows well thru windshield too, looks very cool. Wheels are fine in gold. Thanx for taking us along for the ride!

Thanks harron, I agree with you on the trim. What would you do? I find it too stark of a contrast, perhaps a true flat black or more of a charcoal.

Still not a fan of the paint job Curt, but you did a superb job.

For alternate to the black/grey trim color, I'd be lazy and go with gold. Red would work too, but I think it would add too much red, whereas the gold (although bright) is a sort of neutral color and can be used more. The wheels don't seem too extreme in gold. Just my view at this time in life.
