Here is another one that I have finished up recently. I purchased the Scale Productions resin transkit for this one. The paint is real automotive paint for Eleanor. It is a two stage paint that was custom mixed here locally at an automotive paint supply store (The Painters Edge, Phoenix AZ). They used the smallest metalic flake to keep it in scale. The paint codes are Dupont 44490 pepper grey met for the base coat, and 44435 for the black met stripes. I beleive Greg had to get pints of each. He gave me two ounces of each for my project. Thanks again Greg for the paint!! I detailed this one up as much as I could without going overboard. The engine is a 428 SCJ from the AMT 68 Shelby with a parts box Hillborn injection. The interior had added seatbelts and flocking. I didn't like the tires that the transkit came with so I used Pegasus # 1601 225/50r16 Bridestone tires.

You are welcome for the paint, Raoul. Beautiful and amazing detail work as usual! You should do one of your convertibles with these colors for a matching set. That steering wheel is very nice. Is that a aftermarket part or just more detail? DON"T DROP THAT HOOD!!
