A thing of beauty for sure, good job, great paint as usual.  I would like to know what did you use for the taillights on this car, nice touch?

Well, that one took a lot of thought John.
The paintbrushes I use are made by ROYAL and the handles are beautifully clear with a tapered length.
I simply sanded the very tip to a point.
Cut the tip off.
Then used a warming soldering iron to flatten a flange at the butt.
Painted Tamiya clear red and amber (which is hard to distinguish because I should have used yellow)
And... I mounted them in reverse order, doh!
Glued from the inside with epoxy which strengthens the rear end from splits.

Took about 6 hours to do just that.
