Thanks to Paul (Safe-lite) I was able to finish the Comet up this weekend.

I took some pictures outside. It was sunny when I started but soon the clouds came in so I hope the pictures look okay.

Lost of work on this by my standards. Its not a perfectly clean build but then again neither was the real car. It was rough in places but it sure was fun. I enjoyed building the model almost as much.

I think you did a swell job in replicating the real deal Mitch. Well done.
