After winning another Tamiya Morgan on eBay over the weekend, I've had a spare second hand body in my stash for a while, it was the one I got to strip for parts for the Morgan I built last year, the paint was stripped, and the rear lamp housings were fixed on, a few marks were sanded out of the body, a couple of coats of grey plastic primer were applied, followed by a colour I have wanted to use for ages, and I have plenty of, it's a 1970 Chysler U.K colour, Aquarius metallic Blue, Hillman Imps, Avengers and Hunters were all painted in it ....
 
Now it just needs to gas out for a few days then the clearcoat can go on

Cool Geoff!

 

I really liked your other Morgan, I'm sure this will be just as nice.

 

I think this kit would make a neat street rod B)

Neat color, Geoff. I could see Morgan actually using something like that.

If you order a brand new Morgan, you can specify the colour, and they will paint it in that colour .....

On one of the door the turn locks for the side screens were broken off, and to be honest they are a little on the small size, so holes were drilled where they should be, and dress making pins were glued into place, to make things look right, I cut them off the other door and did the same, they will picked out in aluminium after the clearcoat has gone on

Seat backs were filled in with a bit of Bondo

Interior will be done in tan with a wooden dash

Sanded down the bondo on the seats, got the seats, interior and dash panel done in primer, then shot the tan enamel on, I thinned it using lacquer thinners so it will dry out much quicker ...

Geoff... that tan seat color is perfect...... but looks quite different the the Humbrol matt 62 can in the photo. Is that the paint you used and just a photographic difference in color?

It's the camera on my phone, it has a mind of it's own when some colours are involved sometimes, time to get the Nikon out I think ....

No, as it was originally a GB on eScale, I never put up here, but I will put up photo's of the finished model ....

Not a great deal done to it this week, but got the interior tub masked up and painted the underneath satin black, got most of the smaller parts in primer and masked off the dash and airbrushed the panel desert sand, ready to make it look like wood, also got to mask off the glass in the side panels and get them airbrushed in satin black lacquer

Got the dash dry brushed in Tamiya bronze, then a couple of coats of clear orange, the switches will be picked out in black, took the masking tape off the side screens, pretty pleased with the results, started work on flocking the interior tub, which I will carry on with tomorrow

That 'wood' effect looks very realistic & I wouldn't have thought of using clear orange - cheers for the tip!

 Thanks, that photo was taken just after I had put on the a couple of coats of the clear orange, looks a little better after drying overnight,
