My Modelhaus Tucker Complete
Posted 06 May 2006 - 08:11 AM
Everything you need is provided in the kit, which costs $70. I got it at the NNL East in March. This was also the first resin project I cleaned in Bleche-white, too.
Also my first use of Vacu-formed parts, the window glass.
The original plan was to build Tucker #2, that I saw in Indiana in 2003, but I couldn't find a paint match for the interior. So I decided it would look better in red then brown.
The paint is Tamiya Gold (2 coats) over Tamiya white primer and under Testors Model Master Lacquer (MML) clearcoat. The car was also BMFd.
I decided to scratchbuild a new steering column, as the one provided is rather nasty and doesn't look a thing like it's supposed to. I used a piece of chrome plated sprue from the AMT/Model King 72 Blazer. I also used little metal tubes VW Dave gave me a while back for the exhaust pipes, which are not supplied, but the cutouts are.
And that's it!
Enjoy the pictures!
