To get back into modeling after about a 10 year hiatus, I decided to buy this kit as an easy start off project. Five years later I
finally got it finished. I took two tries to get the paint job done properly. Also, in order to remove the seam on the back
fender/engine cover, you have to assemble the part then add to the frame. It wasn’t designed to fit like that and I cracked it while
trying to add to frame. The painting of the black molding on the front is not very straight and the badges should be foiled.

Finished: February 2004
built basically out of the box (OOTB)
