Latest project on my workbench. A snafu or two in the paintjob, but I wasn't prepared to start over after many hours of masking. A bit of shine hides some errors, but it looks good from a distance. Base kit is the AMT 1962 Pontiac Catalina, to be built lowrider style.

Many hours of masking looks right. That's an awesome paint job mate.

Even more impressive! Must be a few hours polishing to get the finish.

Just finished this build. I added spark plug wires to the engine and used Pegasus Hobbies wheels & tyres. Thanks for looking.
