Wow ,  that's a beautiful color !  And a beautiful T-Bird too .  I'm glad you left the tonneau off ,  it ruins the look of the car .

 

Interesting how our tastes vary. i would buy that kit just for the tonneau. I always liked the looks of the T-Birds with it on.

 

Tulio, great work on this model! The color looks good on it. Very clean build!

Harry could've used the pics of that in the "Real or Model" thread.

I agree the first few photo would be great contenders for the "real or model" thread. An very nice build indeed.

I don't think Wixom ever turned out one that shiny.

My friends, thank you a lot for all the cool comments!!

 

I'm glad if by looking at my little Bird some of you guys decide to build one, because those cars are not common to see built, like Jon Cole said, and they are cool little cars!!!

 

About that shine, I would put the blame on the two part automotive clear. It was the first time I used the stuff, and man, I will use it from now one for sure!! Compared to "regular" modeling clear, it had about 10X the shine, not to mention it's made to resist being on a 1:1 car, so I guess the finish will remain in perfect condition for decades.

It airbrushes very well, and I would recomend it for sure.

OUTSTANDING, I keep thinking about picking one of these up to build for myself.

 

Pictures make it look almost real. Well done.

Joe.

Joe, I painted the "carpeting" with Testors flat black enamel, and the seats, door panels, console and dash with Testors semi gloss black acrylic. After the foil was done, I gave a coat of semi gloss clear (Tamiya) to help with the anodized aluminum efect, as it's not as shinny as chrome.

Stunningly beautiful build, Tulio.  That green is very sharp, and the shine is simply incredible.

Nice work!  Haven't seen that shade of green before.
