I think it sits pretty darn near perfect.

It's finally hit what I consider the "Sweet Spot" of the build. It's when the major components snap into place when your fitting them. With that, I felt confident in making some final pieces. First was the filler panel above the radiator.

The interior tailgate panel.

I also made my first round with the filler on the main body.





















I only broke one joint tonight !

How did you get the bends to stay in the headers? I have never been able to master that in styrene. I don't see flame marks.


Scott


Sorry to be late with the answer Scott.

I try to cold bend the rod using just my fingers. I bend a little, let it rest a second, bend some more and repeat that process until I have a little more band than I need. The rod will want to spring back some, so that's why I go a little "over". If, like in the case of this header, it will hold it's shape when assembled, I leave it alone.If it is not part of an assembly and won't hold it's shape, I'll cold bend it, then hit it with a lighter just long enough to hold it's shape. It takes way less heat to get it to set after it's bent, than to use heat to make the bend.

Hope that made sense.

A slow night, some nerve wracking sanding followed up by making a master cylinder, battery, battery tray and starter solenoid (the piece hanging on the wire).

Getting close to paint.

The wheels are from a Monogram 39 Chevy Sedan Delivery, the tires are from a Monogram 94 Mustang.

Hopefully I only have one more pass with the filler and the body will be ready for paint.

While I'm waiting for the primer to dry thoroughly on the Woody, I figured I'd try to see what I could do with a recent find. I don't find this car particularly attractive, but I did see a lot potential. After a little thought and a couple of hours of cutting and fitting, this is what I came up with.

Both, the the primer/thinner and the filler are pretty hot for the styrene, so both needed time to cure. Tonight was hopefully going to be the last coat of primer before the final paint, but of course I found a couple of small spots that need to be addressed.

This build will be my first venture with BMF, I guess I should start practicing! Luckily it's only the four straight spears on the fenders.

I dropped it and only broke one joint!

I put her in final prime tonight. I don't see any spots I missed (that means at least 2 small spots will show up once the color goes on :wacko: ). I'll let it dry overnight, hit it with some 600 and put the acrylic base on.

I ordered a set of the Uschi Woody Decals, they should be here soon. Along with the BMF, this will be my first attempt at anything woodgrain, lets hope I don't screw up either of them!

You, sir, are a master plastic assassin and a mad plastic scientist all in one. Beautiful work on both kits.

I started painting tonight. I've got the base acrylic down on the inside of the wheelweels and under hood area, along with the underside of the hood. I use a hairdryer to set and dry the acrylic, once it sets a couple of hours, I'll paint the top. Tomorrow I'll throw the nail polish on it and probably clear it tomorrow night.
