So if you hadn't noticed by my name... I'm rather fond of Shelby.

 

Though strangely, I haven't built very many.. Odd. 

I picked this kit up while I was on a school trip in Berlin. Here's hoping it'll go well.

I know it isn't accurate but.. Inspired by the old Fords of the 60s/70s, I painted the block blue instead of black.

I haven't done very much.. but I'm priming the body. Once I've done that and decided on a colour (I'm really finding it hard to decide.. I've a couple of schemes I'd love to do.. All black... Gun Metal with black stripes... I could go on) I'll have the inspiration to go on.

 

Watch this space! :)

No thanks, I don't like these in white, not menacing enough :P

 

Body primed.. Painted some parts, did base coats on the interior stuff. 

 

It'll all be touched up, obviously :)

Just a small update. Mostly just waiting on the body, really. Should get spraying it tomorrow.. I've done mist coats on it. It's gonna be metallic black, no stripes.

It's this Revell kit here:

I reckon it's probably the same as the Revell USA kit, reboxed.

Small update. Interior main stuff is finished, just need to do decals. It's still only mocked up for now.

I sprayed the body today, the colour is PERFECT. Can't wait to get it clearcoated tomorrow, and then I'll upload pics of it.

 

Cheers!

I guess the camera really DOES show every little mistake you make.. it's just as well most of them won't be visible when it's done. :P
Cheers!

Last update before it's under glass. Still some work to do.. It's definitely got the sinister look I wanted anyways.
