Just cudos!, Gabriel!

Awesome build, awesome thread - most enjoyable!
Congrats for finishing this up so nicely and thanks for taking time to share your work though it needed attention to follow up your speedy updates and posts
Nothing else to say what already has been said...

And really - 45 USD?
But remember, most important is the fun you had

btw: great latest pic editing! And beautiful photo presentations in the whole log.

looking foreward to your next 👀,

$45 is a whole fourty-five dollars more that I was getting before taking commissions! Is the shipping that kills me and I cannot compete in equal terms with the American or Canadian modelers. I live in the middle of the modelling nowhere!

Well, since "a picture makes more than a thousand words", I thought is smart to buy a photo tent (and a half-decent camera).

Me too!

Thank you, Thomas! I'm really honored and humbled when my babbling blogs are constantly followed and commented upon!

Cheers!

SURPRISE!
It is my kind of luck to find a crucial piece of reference just couple of days after I finish a build



And here you go: Damian was dead right about the Mopar "trick".
What is intriguing: this picture is dated in 1958, which makes the white one a Chrysler 300D. Now, why the company used a '58 picture to market a '57 car, beat me if I understand!
This is possible, I think, only if the white Chrysler is one of the first hundred Ds (that still had the Hemi engine)... weird!

Still good information to have and a valuable part of the story you have created here. I am sure there will be plenty of future builders who will use this thread as a reference.

Cheers, D
