Thanks, Pugsy! That was a 7 year build since I was still working at the time.

Thanks Gentlemen.


Color is undetermined still. I will need to look at thousands of roundy-round car pics on the internet.


Every shape of car has a color that is so so, and has a color that pops. I seen a 39 Chevy in an off white that looked amazing. Cannot find the pics anymore though.

Well I was walking around an old truck job today with the owner, trying to get a feel for which issues to fix and found myself asking about the color, as that is truthfully a contributing factor to the guidelines I'll use to give satisfactory results. In a nutshell, light colors showcase gaps and dark ones showcase panel faces. So while a hobbyist can optimally go for both... when focus must be applied sparingly to stay within a reasonable balance of budget and quality... and time... it kind of matters. But theres a lot of "grey" area haha. Just rattling your grey matters. I can picture it in a retro solid or a modern pearl, and like either. But they portray very different characters.

What you've done to the profile of the car is dramatic, remarkable, and tasteful. The metal work ain't too shabby either.

Interesting gap observation. It's in the vault.

Pugsy, good progress. It looks good. I would try to color photos or a smaller car model. You'll see right away.
Dark roof, red sides, white fenders?
