Hi Michel,

This is first class scratching! I realy like it!.Maybe you could ad a bit of diluted(tamiya) putty on the hood to give it a less tissue look.

Hi Michel

It's a work of art, even unpainted. I particularly like the embossing/ribbing on the front fenders - I'd bet it probably took a few tries to do that but the results are exquisite.

Thanks for sharing,

DG
