I like the color too. I love using nail polish on models. Some of them can be tricky to thin tho. How long do you usually wait before you clear them with urethane?

I apply several thin coats giving each ample flash time, so the solvents evaporate out fast. It usually only takes about 2-4 hours, overnight to be safe.

The floorpan is cleared, if it looks blue, it's the idiot behind the camera. I can't get the proper color without editing the pic.

I started running brake and airlines. I had the rear done, but it was done out of the frame and didn't clear things properly. I almost gave up on doing it in the car from lack of patience, but I got it.

I still need to paint the brake line coupler and the airline manifold/solenoids.

I'll either scratch build them or steal them from the 39 Wagon Rod.

They came out great. If you scratch built them I would love to see photos on how ya did it or what you used. I wasn't aware that the 39 wagon came with them. It's coming together nicely, can't wait to see it done

I took the easy way out and used the ones from the Wagon Rod.

The frame and interior are one piece. I have to paint the front calipers, and button up a few lines and the underside is done.

Now to touch up the flocking and a few spots on the interior. I'm dreading trying to finish the body. Without exaggeration, I bet I've broke the doors and top of the body at least 20 times so far.

Thank you for the comments everyone, I'm glad you are enjoying this build. It feels weird to get this far on a build, weird, but good!

News flash, broke the body twice today. :blink: I'm actually surprised that I haven't lost it yet and smashed it to bits, must be that old age creeping in.



I started reshaping the inner fenders and once the primer dries a bit more. I'll put the first coat of filler on it.

The recess in the firewall for the engine.

Right side, the front cutout is for the alternator the back cut out is for the header.

Left side, the notch is to clear the front suspension.

I think this is the first time since I cut this body up that it's been back to one piece. Filling and sanding this body is going to be a very delicate process, if you look there are four, 1/8" or less strips that are glued together that hold the body in one piece. I've tried backing it up with .010, but that broke too. Anything thicker and I'll run into problems with the glass. I just have to remember where to hold and more importantly, where NOT to hold.
.
A couple subtle changes you might not have noticed, the guards are gone from the rear fendes along with the front turn signals, the front wheelwells have been reshaped, the headlight buckets are frenched, and the bottom of the grille are has been reshaped. More noticeable, the rather large hole in the front fender for the exhaust, and the frenched holes in the back fenders for the tailights.

The glue joints. I usually cement in braces when I cut something up this much. Unfortunately any bracing would be in the way of fitting the interior and floorpan, there was a lot of test fitting to get everything to fit. As I said, I can't back the joints up with anything too thick as the windows wouldn't fit.

Wow David! This is a excellent build. I really like the look of the shortened body. Excellent choice on the Offy. The entire chassis it great! Excellent fabrication work! Your interior is also a standout.

How did you get the bends to stay in the headers? I have never been able to master that in styrene. I don't see flame marks.

What are you using for glue on the body? I have found that testors liquid can create a pretty strong bond if applied to clean plastic with no gap and allowed to dry overnight.

Another winner build for sure.

Scott

glue halves together,cut a troughalong joint, insert strip styrene, fill though with ca glue.
this comes from a book called custom car modeling by mark s. gustavson havent tried it my self yet but it looks like it should work pretty good.

Thanks for the suggestions, but I doubt if anything other than being really careful from here on out will work. If you look at the 4 arrows, you will see how small each joint is and how fragile those areas of the body are.
