Progress this day

The process of building pilot models is draining. Rewarding, but draining.


After far too many delays and minor hiccups, this model is now reaching completion. And I couldn't be happier. So far the model has gone together pretty much as I had hoped. Still have to pause and consider how best to approach some of the tasks involved in assembling this car.
As well as, I have to stop and write down all the steps as I go for the instructions, which slows down progress some.
Tomorrow it's the etched dome platform. With any luck I'll be flinging paint before dinner.
I fully expect to be able to have this model ready for sale at the St Louis RPM in August. Right now the intention is to only offer 50 kits for sale. If there's more demand I'll consider a further production run.

Pierre, this looks like it is going to be a great kit. Love all the etchings and hand rail stanchions. Is this going to be available in other road names?
