Default My TGP Convertible Model

Hey guys I just wanted to start a thread about a model I am working on (since I can't afford to do anything to the real ones). Anyway It was a TGP model I picked up off Ebay and when I opened it up I noticed the body was stressed like something had rested on it for a long time. and I was bummed for the longest time. Then one day I had the Idea why not cut the roof off and do something unique with it. So hear are some progress pics of it and I will continue to show the process. Enjoy.

What you think would be a good interior color to go with the Emerald Green exterior?

Here is what the interior would look like black. I have had a suggestion for Grey.

i went to a show one time and a guy had heated up a couple of models and made it look like they got into a wreck. on the display he glued parts like they had scattered around, it was cool. models are sometimes a good way to pass the time during the winter.
