Dear Diary,

 

I was minding my own business, cruising the MC Forum, when I realized I must be satisfied with my current abilities because there are some people on this planet that I can only aspire to.

Wonderful work.!

Every part is so Clean,

It is a work of art,

I must ask you a funny question,

when you are done with a build at this level,that is the highest level i can Think of!

The next model you start building,is that just a "box stock" or something a Little more easy to build.?or do you get to Another super detailed build right away.?

Myself,when i have build something super detailed at my level, (way lower than yours) i need to relax with a easy build.

 

Thanks for the inspiration, i love this.

Ah, yes...there was more building than photo taking those last few days before I left for Atlanta! The car is pretty well finished. I do want to add a few more things.

 

These pics were about two days before I left. So it is even further along than these....

The paint is HoK Tru Blue pearl at the back fading into HoK Candy Cobalt, faded into black. Then I masked off the flames and put a base of white down, with a quick coat of pearl white over that. Then I airbrushed the yellow and orange. Once unmasked I cleared everything with a couple coats of Omni 2 part clear. After that cured for a few days I polished it smooth, and re-cleared it to even out the falmes and make everthing smooth. I added the decals, then hand bordered the flames and the "Problem CHild" with One Shot lettering emamel.
