Driver detail.  The driver was some old resin driver that I had.  The seatbelts are literally painters (blue) tape, painted Sprint White, then cut out.

Thanks, Don.  I'm glad you like it.

 

I'd like to take credit for the paint, but that body is 50 years old and was already painted that groovy brown color.  That's why you can see cracks and scratches and stuff if you look closely.  I just detailed it out a bit and polished it.

Thanks, Paul. 

 

Yeah, I think these look very bad, especially when you get the wide view from on top.

Beautiful build!
Hope you cut down the pinion gear a bit.  Else, it will tear up the tire.
