Do you have an airbrush?

I did enamel to start, Boyd's ice blue pearl as a base followed up with a coat of tamiya ts-60 pearl green.

I've done some painting on the seats, but no picture yet. I must do just very little cleaning before I can post picture. ;)

Nice builts - all of them. I hope, i will see them in the Under Glass section?

After my first completed built (perhaps, you remember him)...
Posted Image
...i ordered another one and the "Phantom" Stationwagonbody from Jimmy Flintstone...
Posted Image
That was last month. Cant take my hands off from this fabulos kit.
Mounted the Engine the same like may first built...
Posted Image
...to the completed chassis and tested the bodies fitting:
Posted Image
It works!
But...i dont like this view from the windowline and roof. There is so many space between the passenger door and the back.
Dont liked that, so i cutted out all the "columns", carved new door surrounds (?) and built new columns:
Posted Image
Now, i think, it looks like a more balanced optik.
Next step after a lot of sanding and filling with putty i primed the body:
Posted Image
Thats it - from this Hudson in progress.
Today, i made the paintjob in a two-tone-colorsheme. A kind of turquoise and old white, but have no actual pictures.

More will come up, thanks for patience buddies ;)

I like that! The Jimmy Flintstone body looks a bit better as a four door. B)

Handyman is in the home stretch- we're down to adding the last few fiddly, boring, non-photoworthy details that make all the difference. B) I painted the wheels silver (rear wheels are from an AMT '49 Ford)- they and the chassis are now permanently installed, along with most of the engine.

Chuck, that Pick up looks very cool! What have you done with the chromeparts? They look realistic to the overallview for a craftsman's car. "Cheap" with no expensive chrome and trim. Like it!

Todd, that looks amazing!

On the bumpers- I cut off the guards and licence plate frames and sanded them smooth. All of the chrome parts were stripped and painted with Duplicolor Bumper Chrome, which is actually just a bright silver- it kind of looks like the paint used on 'cheap' pickups in the '50's instead of chrome. I was going for a kind of 'base model' look on this one.

Todd- love the Cad mill in these. I used the Parts Pack Cad in the green '52, but the Merc engine is quite a bit less fiddly to work with!

Good a reason as any.
And why did I call it a 'Merc' engine? :lol:

Thanks Chuck for explaining to me. You hit the "base model" look perfect in my view!
