Can't believe how much better spray paint is compared to how it used to be!

That 2x enamel sprays real nice. It does well through an airbrush decanted and thinned slightly more too. You can get multi thinner coats on. Plus then you can mix colors.

Hi!

          I can say in all truthfulness that Rust-Oleum can surprise you. The Dove Grey primer goes down to a silky finish that can remain a topcoat!

The older chassis pan is very simplified.

Mated the body to the chassis and it was kind of too high in the front so I adjusted the stance more to my liking.

The model looks great but wow that is some extreme clamping!  Worried about marring the finish?

Thanks,

The kit did not include mirrors so after an extensive search of my parts stash I found some acceptable parts Not 100 percent accurate but a lot better than nothing!
