Woah, I though the thread had disappeared, but happy to find again.  Thanks for the kind words everyone.  Today, I am adding final details and then we are painting primer on everything.  This weekend should begin the painting fun.  Stay tuned in, my friends.

Being a desert vehicle, wouldn't you want this thing to ride high?  What an imagination you have, doc.

That's a good question, Jim, and I think this is more of a flat terrain type of vehicle, the modifications never really thought-through all the way  . . . at least that's the story.

 

I got primer on all the parts finally!

I really like using all the different color primers, for different effects as you will begin to see as soon as the paint starts going on.

I wouldn't have all the patience to lay out the parts like that.  I tend to make piles.

Thanks, Bob, and Jim, laying out the parts like this is therapy for my OCD.

Thanks, everyone, the painting has begun, and it's going slow.  We are in the salting/texture stage which is repetitive but quite a bit of fun.  Stay tuned in for more.

All right, you CRANKYHEADS, this is what almost two days of painting with the airbrush (except the engine and the bed rack which were rattled canned) looks like:

 

Everything has received the salt/hair spray technique to achieve this look so far.  I really like the way the body and the wood on the bed have turned out.  So far so good, and so far so much fun.
