Well, it's finished! That's all I can say. LoL I started this build back around 2010 mainly for the Vinyl Roof Tutorial that I have to redo. I didn't do much to it except change the tires to something a bit more realistic. I added plug wires, a fuel line, and a vacuum hose to the engine. Not much else could be done. Painted Dupli-Color Ford Apple Red. Trim done with a silver Sharpie. Enjoy!

I really like that detail under the hood.

Wowser, fantastic! The engine is primo and the vinyl roof is "tops!" I missed getting one of the kits back when and had always wanted to do one as a demo derby car. Your work there is as good as any I ever saw if a vinyl roof job.

Thanx everyone! It was a build that fought me all the way, but I was glad I built it. Maybe my adopted mom is looking down and smiling at me as I did this almost as a replica of her 1:1. She is also the one who bought this kit for me.

I watched that one over at ZMC and I'm glad you finished it. I love your engine details especially how you did the fuel line. Very nice looking model.

Well this is another one down from the Running for an MOM Award! It won the April MOM at ZMC! I'll truly cherish this plaque as it's the last from an awesome site. Cheers! 8)
