So, I wanted something quick to work on while I was waiting for the paint to strip on my '34 Ford project, so I picked up one of these at my LHS. The colour is a GM colour called Medium Sage Metallic, the same shade that graces my 1:1 '86 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. ;) I had it mixed up in a spray can at a local paint shop a while back. I've made some decent progress so far; the body's painted and clearcoated, needing only minor details to finish. I've also gotten some of the chassis parts painted:

I also got the blower assembly together; it just needs some finishing details and it'll be set...I'm still not sure what colour to paint my engine block.

The last thing I have to show you guys is some detail painting. The parachute is ready to glue to the back of the body; I also painted the insides of the header collectors flat black to add some depth.

That's all for now! All comments and advice are appreciated. :)
