I tried to 👍 like it but it only says I reacted.  So I say I reacted positively to your the pictures of your new model.

Like Frank (above) I tried to👍but was only was given permission to react. It’s a beautiful Dodge finished in a color appropriate for the era. The proportions and detail on this Conquest model are excellent. I give it a thumbs up!

Great looking little Dodge. I too think that this is a nice color for this model.

Great looking car.  Unable to do a thumbs up, possible pilot error on my part.  Is there still a glitch in the coding?

I like the model and have had it in my collection for several years in Lullaby Blue.

I like it, John.  It reminded me of this predecessor, from before WW II.  Well. . .  Conquest may have turned out just a little better fit and finish.

That's a cool model-I haven't seen that before. Who makes it?

It's a Mikansue, probably from 25 or more years ago.  It's been a while since I built it, but I remember it as not being easy or resulting in a very realistic model.

I just received mine in metallic blue from Buz and it is a fantastic model IMO.  I had struggled with my color selection but I am very glad I selected the blue shade; it suits the model so well.  Sometime metallic colors look a bit coarse on models but not this one...it's awesome!
