This is my latest completion. I actually finished it in Lake George, almost 3 weeks ago, but I have not gotten the chance to photograph it until yesterday.

It is the AMT kit that was just issued recently. I believe it may have been an MPC kit at one point though. The paint is Tamiya Mica Red and the kit is box stock, although, I did drill a hole in the chassis to make the front sit lower to the ground.

Thank you and enjoy the pictures!

Unfortunatly I messed up when painting the door handle, I was just holding it at an odd angle, and it ruined the whole side of the car, IMO :lol:

I didn't bring any Pontiac Engine blue with me, so I went with my stand by for customs, hot rods and whathaveyou, gold, for the engine.

I have been experimenting with BMFing the scripts before paint, and it worked well, even if it did not photograph well.

Thanks!

Nice Firebird, Billy! I like the way the scripts came out. That originally was an MPC kit, I have one of the old MPC boxes around here somewhere.

You nailed the stance, Billy! Great job, nice paint, and way to go on the "pre-paint BMF" work!

great job Billy Just remember the reason for mistakes is to learn from them so you don't keep repeating them.
