Thats good to do ,I find stepin away from a build for a bit gives you a fresh view on things & then make your changes ,As you have seen with some of my builds coming back & makin some changes like the Mcgurk jalopy tore out the whole cage & started again & gave a fresh view on were the details were going!!!. I have the Voit Rubber Jalopy back on the bench & have tore the whole thing down & starting again ,Just got over excited when i built her & now im just not happy with were i was heading so start again ,Wont have to repaint Body but redo hole chassis & cage.....add better detail !

well i might have lost the "light weathering" due to some decal mistakes on my end.. the 56 is on a short hold as i was invited to a '36 ford build in my club..so ill be posting that as i figure out the 56.. im thinking something a little more modern latemodel offset and all that.
