Thanks guys for the kind comments, really appreciate them! It's been hard trying to get some progress on this with other things in life keeping me busy. Who knows, at this rate maybe I'll have her done by decades end :lol: :lol: .

 

Chris, I have thought about the looms in 1/16 but don't think the market is there yet. Good idea though!

Charlie... I think I have you beat on getting progress done. I have been on my funny car for over 2-1/2 years now and I need to finish it so I can move on to someone builds I have planned lol. No worries on the looms. I totally understand. I am trying to figure out what I can use for them for my Army Vega F/C. I almost wish I had my own home photo-etch system at home ...lol

Get to the bench when you can and I will be looking forward to your next update. I just love how clean your work is.

Thanks guys, well I got a "little" more done on this. Wheels/Tires are complete with added detail using Pro Tech's hex fittings (PTMC 25) for lug nuts and machined aluminum valve stems (PTMC 72). Next, I installed Pro Tech's racing harness (PTMC 17) revised to represent a vintage style (a tutorial how to do this is on my website) on the kits seat. Till next time, thanks for looking!

Thanks guys, well the body is finally finished. I spent about 8-10 hours sanding/polishing the paint and am happy with the results. I also have the glass installed, Bare Metal Foil (I used a fine Scotch Brite on the foil to knock down the chrome effect and make it look more like aluminum) used for body window trim, and made rear panel to replace rear window. Thanks for looking. Also don't forget to check out my new YouTube video in the "Links, Website section"

Hey Charlie, that's the worst paint job I've ever seen. Lol Just kidding, outstanding work. For all you out there who have never seen Charlie's work up close he's a phenomenal model builder.

Thanks guys, who knows, maybe I'll get it done by the end of the year.....no I'm serious :unsure:.

 

Tom, your not too shabby of a builder yourself. When are you going to post some of your work?? I'm sure the guys would love to see it. We can have a challenge to see who finishes a model first :lol: :lol: :lol: . See ya on Tues. at the meeting.

Wow that looks really good! Paint job is smooth as glass and your detailing is really good looking. You're doing a great job in here, I can't wait to see more!

I want to say as well, that Pro Tech parts are great! I have bought a big bunch of Braided Lines and a couple of Valve Cover T-Bolts (So far). They are great quality and I'll definitely order more of them across the Ocean rather than buying Detail Master Braided Lines from Finland since I never had any luck with them, but Pro Techs have worked every time. :)
