In Topic: 1:8 scale '32 Bugatti Coupe' de Ville

Superb work on the engine and the machined look on its panels. The wood dash is in my very personal opinion one of the best I have ever seen done in this type of wood grain, it even look to scale.

About painting leather, there are some specific "touch-up" paints in spray cans made to fix small scrachts and other imperfections on leather made furniture, shoes,briefcases and hadbags, they come in a selected variety of colors, these could work for you, these are sold at some dept. stores and also craft stores. Here is the website of one in the UK as an example.

Hope it helps and looking forward for more updates!!

In Topic: 1933 Duesenberg Boattail

Great looking car and model, interesting color combinations and quite in tone with the era of these beautiful cars in which the wealthy owner commissioning his exclusive car wanted to make a statement with equally unique and personal paint work.

I have this same kit, a note of interest is that the original car had a siren in the front of the car, one of the former owners was a chief of fire dept or something similar.

Also of interest is that when I got the Entex boattail I also got the 1/16 Bugatti Coupe Napoleon...at the time....an EXACT repop of the original out of production Entex offering...the price was so good I hesitate at first thinking it could be a scam.. $39.99 INCLUDING shipping. ..but ...it was true and got the model. I haven't seen any other of the old original Entex 1/16 repops under the one used for the Bugatti, unfortunately. ..will love to have the Packard and all the others.
