The original part:

After some sanding and placing of the PE parts you will get

Today I made some progress on the interior.

Some progress made yesterday.

All the interior parts are in it's place. Because of my skills in weathering, I decided not to.

Here are the pics.

I also placed some PE pearts inside the wheelwells.

Hey there Racedees,

 

Looks like I am going to be building the same kit. Sorry, I wasn't trying to copy.

 

Your build is coming along very nicely.

Hey there Racedees,

Why not? I would, this looks great so far!

 

Copying is a great compliment to people and it is why many post their WIPs here... So people can copy / get ideas.
