Hi, folks. I survived the paint shop! The colors are Mica Red and Pure White laid over Racing White which had too much of an egg shell tone for my taste. The green tape is a "high performance" auto masking tape from 3M that I got from the auto store and the yellow is Yellow Frog Tape, the delicate surface stuff. A little of the red bled through the tape onto the white but it was easy enough to burnish off. The rewired distributor lets the body and hood scoop set where I want them and the overall look is pretty good. The wheelbase is a bit off, but I had expected that from some of the issues I ran into placing the axles in the frame.

 

Now to work on decals and finish this thing up.

Finished the paint and decals. Most of them are from the Net with a few from the Slixx Pro Mod grill set and Drag Goodies sheets. The engine has been rewired so that the scoop and body agree with each other better now. It has been clear coated with a semi gloss from Tamiya and waxed to seal in the decals and protect the paint. Now I need to bear down and do the details like the parachutes and their mounts and install the windows. 

 

Finally looks like a Race Car. ;)

Thanks. I got the parachutes mounted today with PE washers for rings and little orange safety flags. I messed with 1.2mm rod half the day trying to build a cage of some sort to mount them on and gave up. I epoxied them to the tail. Works for me. Sometimes simple beats fancy hands down.

Your perseverance is to be commended!! From where you started to where you are now is a tremendous accomplishment. This is shaping into a fabulous build-up and somewhat of a tutorial. Thumbs up!! :D

Thank you both for the comments. This build has been quite a learning experience. 

 

I'm working on the windshields now. Screwed up the front one with some liquid cement but had a spare in my parts box. I think I can finish it this week, but I've learned not to push things. I have a broken security light to replace and there is a Lucas Oil Regional and Divisional race at the local track Thursday through Sunday, so I might go soak up the 1:1s.

All finished at last. I have posted all the final photos over in Under Glass.

 

Thanks to all of you for putting up with all of this. (Just kidding) Your support was much appreciated.

 

See you all soon.
