      The RM deuce comes with an upper rear beltline that's interrupted at the corners. To clean that up, I've glued on a few pieces of flat styrene 32 Roadster Belt Line Cleanup strips and sanded them to the shape of the beltline. I then add a bit of putty 32 Roadster Belt Line Cleanup to clean it up. This makes for a cleaner and more realistic rear beltline.

    Rick, the belt line is correct. It dips on the 1:1 32 Roadster Belt Line Cleanup for the wooden tack strip on which the folding roadster top is fastened. The fiberglass versions have this filled in along with the doubled recess in the fender well not found in the RM version.

    Huh! I always though RM did the belt line so the plastic top would fit. I never knew it belonged there.

    I'll load some pics of the deuce I am building showing what I did...I built a tack strip and gloss finished it to have a little different look the the "fiberglass" look that has become the norm. I'll see if I can get a decent picture as I don't have a closeup setting on my camera.

    This is good chatter guys! Sometimes we neglect to show off the little things we do that make our projects just a "little" bit different.

    Those little details we learn about and add to our work is what turns a pretty good model into a great one. Keep it going. The learning process never ends.

    I just uploaded a picture showing the tack strip (alittle fuzzy) and also the modified wheel wells to bring them back to accuracy. Sorry the pics are so bad
