Hello!

It's finally done. I was in some kind of a mini slump. So I used the opportunity to exercise the basics.
This is a 100% box stock / spray can build. No flocking, no wires, no aluminum tubing, no nothing else other than paint and glue. The only "modification" was cutting the wheel mounting studs so the car would sit lower. Stance is everything.
I have to admit I like it. Too bad I need to ship it back to the owner. :wink:
I had so much fun doing this curbside box stock that I will do 2 more before going back to my beloved detailed Corvettes.
I really recommend all of you to do this every once in a while.

As usual, your comments are appreciated.

Sorry for so many pics, I couldn't help it :P

Hi, I'm blue and here is Goldy, my evil twin brother:

You can see Goldy sits a hint lower.

Here you can see the difference in the hoods.

Curbside vs Full Engine detail.

That is one gorgeous prancing horse Izzy!

Too bad you have to give it back to who wanted it. :P I'd be hard pressed to give something that nice away.

Can't you tell 'em you broke it on the floor or something, and you'll make another one?? :lol:

Ismael,
Can you hear that????

The roaring crowd?

Yeah, you hit a home run!

I have to agree with you 100%, a box stock build is good for the modeling soul.

I hope your friend enjoys it! Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful build. I'm sure its hard to part with! I guess thats why I don't build commission work (that and nobody has asked me to! :shock: )

That blue fits the car very well, and the stance is great!

Beautiful again, Izzy! Very nice shade of blue - the new owner is going to absolutely love it.

Seeing the gold one again prompted me to just go buy that Revell 612 kit online. Inspiring!

Ismael, from any side you see the model, it's such a real nice build,..box stock!....but, anyway it's a nice build. Like the famous phrase says: "Back to the basics"

Te quedo bien conco...

I'm a reserved complimenter, as yu know Izz, but then yu showed in PSAB and as I said then, I'll say again.....this is one ###### fine piece of work Ismael. I am truly impressed by tha clarity of yur window work, truly adds to tha reality of yur model's appearance. Clearly showroom quality.

But, it still looks like a Nissan Izz. :wink:

Zeb :twisted:


psssst; I luv yur showroom...... :D

That's sharp! Exotics aren't exactly my thing (although I have a Lambo Miura that may find it's way to the REAL soon). Very smooth paint, perfect stance. Very nice job Izzy!

Gang,

I'm pleasantly surprised to see such a good reaction to a box stock build of a subject that is not necessarily the most popular around. :wink:
Thanks a lot!
