I hope this is another inspirational thread where everyone will feel free to share their work in progress but ONLY in PRIMER.

Yes, show us your WIPs in PRIMER.

Thank you.

What a great idea! Especially because I never seem to get past the primer stage. Almost all the creative work is done by then (I've never done other than a single color), and a new slice-and-dice custom becomes irresistible.

Gerald, I hope we are not the only ones who love styrene in primer. I've always loved watching the primer tables at the shows. Primer IS that blank canvas that feeds the imagination. Of course, the other is naked styrene, but there's something exciting about PRIMER, right?

Somebody likes long roofs. That" Nova Nomad" is a very cool idea. I would love to see it when it's finished.

Some of us love primer even as a finished product. It seems every time I go to a car show I much more attracted to the primer jobs whether its a WIP or finished product.
