This latest pic was taken at a recent R.A.M.S meeting
by G.H. (thanks Geo.)Had to strip the paint and redo.
Clear still needs to be applied and then BMF.
For some reason I got two shades of orange.
The name brand (Testors Fire Orange) ...weird.
First can was used on the underside, engine bay and
skirts.Second can was on used the body. As for the
white part...I used Tamaya pearl white...it goes on thinner
than Testors white lightning.

Hahahaha ...yeah I know...
I hadn't touched it in about a month..

here's some progress pixs of the car show sign..
have to think on a name tho.
The Stetson and Colt are from the Boot Hill Skeleton.
The hat's crown was reduced and the
gun belt is masking tape with a wire buckle.
The board was carved with an X-Acto knife and painted.
Posted Image

the underside of the hood and the upper "eye brows" from an Impala.
the 59 kit has the "eye brows" molded in one piece.The under hood structure
is pure imagineering.

Impala bumper with over ride.

Side spear painted gloss white with clear over it .Smooth bed cover .

thanks for your patients
I will take some "sunshine" pixs tomorrow.
