It is finished. I was a bit suspect about using the Carrera T-Bird chassis,but I am pretty surprised that it worked out quite well! A decent runner and a nice addition to the 50's Ford line up.

Between your superior foiling, the color scheme you picked and the overall details of that kit, best Fairlane 500 I have seen!!

Fun to see them all lined up on the track!

Thinking about taking my 50's Fords to a model car show in March, to show the static guys how good the slots can look "and they run"
