I just completed this box stock. I live in Indianapolis, been modeling like most of all you, since I could remember. Recently I really have been focusing on build and paint quality, adding detail as my skills get better. Here is a recent effort I just completed. Your comments are welcome! This 1965 car will be my tow car for another 65 Malibu Wagon I have that I am stripping down and rebuilding into a drag car. I also am going to use the 1976 MPC Caprice reissue kit trailer as well. So I am going to have a period type set up with all the fixins', like tools, ramps etc, more posts to come. I am taking a break from my Malibu's and starting on a 1971 Thunderbird right now that I am finalizing a paint scheme on.

After years of frustration, I really only use dupli color. I will post the color code tonight. I like dupli color becuase not only does it lay great but Dupli uses GM, Ford, Chrysler, and some foreign car's paint codes. The color was a metallic blue aqua of some sort. the interior was shot with a lighter blue from dupli as well. Detail painting I use model master or taymia water based acrylics. And of course my BMF skills are getting better as well.

Nice job looks great! My next 2 or 3 builds are gonna be completely box stock as well. Just to concentrate on the quality of the build first and not worry about adding all the aftermarket stuff.

Excellent job. We need more longroofs, especially base models. I really like it a lot!
