Just got done with the foil and decals.

Posted Image

I wasn't sure how the foil was going to work around the compound curve on that lower rear fender trim. I thought it might end up looking like a baked potato, but it came out okay. There are a couple of tiny little wrinkles that are hardly noticeable.

The paint is Testors Model Master "Radome Tan" which is a flat military color. So after the color I shot on two coats of Testors clear gloss.

I started a thread on the 1:1 scale car here:

Looking great so far! I like the paint and decal work a lot, smooth and nice. I can't see no wrinkles or anything, it just looks good. Where are those Jack Stands (?) from?

Ha ha, I get asked that all the time. Those were sent to me years and years ago, by a reader of my old column. He was making them for himself and a few friends. They are cast in white metal and, unfortunately were never offered for sale.
