Didn't see anything come up today, and I didn't have a chance to do this until a little after midnight, but here's what I've spent most of the week poking at.

 

The Moebius '55 Chrysler 300 is fantastic. I've only had a couple of little hiccups with this kit, but it's been a sheer joy to build.

 

The engine is really a model in and of itself.

The wheels are blackwashed very lightly.

One of the easiest-to-assemble frames I've ever dealt with.

Some dry-fitting of the chassis.

I got an assembly sequence out of order, so it might require a little jiggery-poke to get the the exhaust pipes in, but this is still going to work well and have a great looking assembly when it's all done. I plan on installing the driveshaft and finalizing most of the other assemblies this afternoon.

Oh, it has, trust me.

 

It's no great secret that I've very seriously considered started my own model production, and for fit-and overall design, the 300 is rapidly becoming the benchmark.

Remember, Mike, t'a'int over 'til the last part is on.

 

Speaking of which...where did the gas pedal go for that thing? It seems to have disappeared unless they simply missed it somehow.

Just messing with a box stock build of the Hawaiian while building a full detail hawaiian with scratchbuilt chassis to correct the kit. Scratchbuilt chassis next to the box stock one. Not worried about seams ect, just want to finish a model.

The full detail one is getting a correct hemi and torqueflight, 9" ford rear end just like the version that was in the article "unraveling the snake pit"

The last coat of primer is on the 300. The firewall is downstairs awaiting paint. Hopefully this time with a paint can that doesn't have a defective nozzle!

 

I also have the Model T I've been poking at stripped.

 

Lastly, the interior of the 300 had a primer job go bad. The white primer I applied came out in a manner similar to Spackle and it didn't cover well to boot. Let's see what we can do tomorrow, as it supposed to be a bit drier.

I got one probably not seen by to many people. Where it is no longer Saturday and this is not quite what is considered a table or bench it works for me.

I don't always get to build on Saturdays. I build every time I stop for a break. My bench doesn't get to stay messy. If it did my wife would probably throw everything out the window at 62 mph. Lol. Enjoy.

That's got to be hard to build on the road.

Not as hard as you'd think. I don't get a lot of time and my space is very limited, unless we get a hotel room for a night. But I love building models so much that I finally talked my wife into letting me build in the truck. I assured her she wouldn't suffer from any intoxicating fumes. Lol. It's a lot of fun actually. Only draw back is I can't get my airbrush out of storage. It would be sweet with the air brakes and tanks and lines and all that from the truck, but there's just nowhere to set it up.

No pictures right now, but...

 

Re-primed the T. I'll probably put a coat of paint on that tomorrow.

 

The Chrysler ended up in the Purple Pond. Something got into my paint, and all the sanding in the world wasn't going to get rid of it.

 

DSCF1089_zps0cb382f1.jpg

 

I've also painted the first coat on the interior of the Chrysler. I did it with brush-painted Acryl Radome Tan. It'll need a second coat.

 

I might also dig out my Olds and do a little more with that.
