That's the plan. I'm actually enjoying building again. When I have a problem I tell myself I'm building for me, not someone or a contest.

I've only done interior pieces, never done window trim or body trim.

The window trim does have nice deep molding so the blade will have something to follow.

Good save, Dan. A rub through is always a PITA.

Here are a couple of pics of the chassis. This was from a couple of months ago. I'm just now getting the pics posted.

Now that cold weather is finally here, I'll be getting back to work onRevell 64 Fairlane - Page 3 00110

I started working on this again tonight. I'm on vacation for the next week & a half.

I'll get some pics of the wheel mock up tomorrow.

One thing that did happen (no one to blame but myself) since I didn't strip the paint after my orange peel escapade, and just applied a new color over the first color, it was pretty thick. So thick the paint cracked in a couple of three places when I flexed the body to put the chassis in to mock up the wheel fitment.

I've seen paint cracked on 1:1 cars so it just adds to the character of my build.

Chrome should add pizazz to the darkish color. I was surprised at the stance. I guess it's the large rear tires and low "stock"wheel cut-out that makes it look lower. the car's sides don't seem either high or low, it's just an illusion. Best to you on the windup!

This kit is a modified reissue of the original Thunderbolt kit. The chassis is the Thunderbolt chassis. The only thing Revell added was stock steel wheels, stock hood and a different air cleaner to fit under the stock hood.

It is foiled.

I spent the last three hours of 2016 doing the window foil.
