For a pre-war casting the lines, angles etc look very accurate to me. Impressive build to say the least; more so given it's pre-war history, the Scale Craft consist certainly enhances the running footage too.
Cool stuff as usual, thanks for sharing this. I don't know how you resist painting and decaling these.
What a model!

Lovely! We need still photos of those cars, too, or at least a slower runby.
