Here are some photos of a new in progress project - a 394 Olds powered '32 Ford 5-Window Hi Boy. The wheels were kit items with Modelhaus tires. The engine was from the Revell '50 Olds kit with partts from an Ertl Blue Printer parts pack Pontiac (the intake manifold and valve covers) along with block hugger headers from an AMT '62 Chevy 409 kit.

 

The body is airbrushed with Testor's One Coat Lacquer Root Beer. I sprayed paint into a paint jar and let it sit overnight to let the metallic flakes settle (they are way out of scale). I then decanted (the correct use of that term) the paint into another paint jar and left the flake behind. The contrasting color is Model Master Phoenician Yellow lacquer, also airbrushed.

 

Hopefully I will also have this one finished for the up coming NNL East next month.

That is superb!

 

Did you spray the root beer over a metallic basecoat like silver or gold?

The wheels got me. The delicate trim rim against the contrasting color under the Root Beer. Beautiful...just beautiful!

very very nice !!

the kit wheels and i dont mean this in a bad way for me let down the car a bit , better said the body / chassis / engine combo are so cool and for me realistic ... the wheels kind of look less realistic to me then the rest , hope you know what i mean ?

but thats one cool and clean build :wub:

The Root Beer was airbrushed over Tamiya Fine White Surfacer Primer.

The Moon tank is a modified kit item. The ends were airbrushed with Alclad II Chrome over Model Master Gloss Black. The plastic two piece center part of the kit tank was ditched in favor of a cut piece of K&S thick wall polished aluminum tubing that was a little longer then the kit center part.
