I've had this idea for awhile to try to replicate the car pictured by Harry back around when this kit first came out. The picture is this one...
I started out by sanding off the very faint mold seams on the body along with the scripts, badges and keyholes. I added some thin plastic strips to sort of replicate the custom side trim. I'm debating whether or not to try to cut out the vent holes in the trim in front of the doors, or to just "black them in". The wheels are a set of Pegasus wheels and tires that I've had sitting around for some time, and they're just taped in for the pictures.
I haven't painted an Orange car in almost 20 years so this one will be different for me. I've got a couple of cans of HOK colors (Tangelo Pearl and Ultra Orange Pearl) that I've been wanting to use so I'll have to experiment to see which color I like the best for this car.
The rest of the car will be built pretty much stock with maybe some "bling" added in the engine room. I'm also debating whether or not I should just glue the hood shut and just make this a Curbside model.
Thanks for looking in on this new project. As usual, all comments are welcomed. Further updates to come as they happen.
