Thanks Gary..! Here gents is a very old AMT model...1959 Buick Invicta convertible restoration I did of one of my dads oldies. She had many custom parts glued to it and trim damage from them but I think it came out ok in the end. I like scale figures they add a extra touch but their just sitting in it. Poor thing had fender skirts,custom tire carrier,and other strange custom parts all over it when I started the restoration. Thanks for looking gents..I hope you all like it.

One of the most beautiful Buicks ever. A vast improvement over the gaudy chromed scow they put out in '58.

Done.

Weird.... I had to rotate 90 degrees, save then rotate back 90 degrees again and save again before they came out right.

The lady in the back seat has some real funky pants on. Looks like she raided a low rider interior for the fabric.

Mark, I would suggest a white posterboard background for photos. You can get a 2'x3' sheet for a buck at walmart. I got them for .50c each at the dollar store!
