Looking very nice. Are those grills from Nico? I have 2 and a half more to do! one of the two reasons I haven't finished mine as it takes me about 2 hours to complete one of those grills! Yours look very good!

Thanks Fett_ish,...Yes they are, brilliant PE from Nico.....I had to buy magnifying goggles to put them together....yep they take up a lot of your time

Just to let you guys know Guy Cowan has now started his own Archive X website,....ordering his vintage Floquil replica paints is even easier

OK, underside pics, still WIP....but a comparison to the real 32" (first pic only).....doing Ps comps like this helps me see what I've done right/wrong, light/heavy
