Great "chop jobs", buddy - I will be very interested to see how you achieve your final finish, over the bondo'ed spots, if you can show us. And actually, I should ask about the initial surface prep as well, seeing as how the two times I used bondo on a model, it later began to separate. Of course, both times I did rather larger areas than what you're doing here - but still, any tips greatly appreciated!
And you certainly do make a mean Matty's Models Single-5"/38

Meantime, great stuff, Kevin - keep 'em comin'!
