IT'S DRY!!!

 

I painted the body with Metallic Turquoise Enamel. A week later the paint is dry!

I think these Silver Scallop Decals might look good on the Futuray...

PLASTIC SURGEON!

 

Seating in the FUTURAY is much more reclined than the Futura, so some modifications are needed!

 I cut the backs of the Man's knees with a razor saw, just enough so I could bend them forward.
I separated the Woman's left foot from her right leg and then I cut the back of the right knee.

I fit them in the interior and then I glued the knees in the new positions.

Next I trimmed the knees to shape, added putty and sanded them smooth...

PAINTING THE PEOPLE!

 

I stuck the people on chop sticks with 2-sided tape.  The sticks make it easy to hold the figures while painting.
Then I sprayed them with white lacquer primer.

I used water-based acrylics to paint the figures. Then I sprayed them with Dull Coat.

I used "The Detailer" Black Wash, diluted a little with water, on the figures. This brings out the details, like in the folds in the clothes or skin...

LAST FEW DETAILS...

 

Well the Futuray is almost Finished!

 

I painted the interior with Water-Based Acrylics.
 I was so happy when I dropped a wet brush on the wing and the white splash just wiped off with water!

I added a Wide Screen Monitor where the steering wheel shaft used to be. The Monitor is made from a License Plate Frame, with the recessed area painted black. I think the passengers are on auto-pilot now...

The Bubbletop is my favorite part in this kit. Here it is the  after I applied Bare Metal Foil.
Finishing the last few details on the Futuray!

Love the figures, especially the pose on the lady. I died when you showed the pic of the canopy and then didn't show a pic with it on. Mean old man. :angry: :lol:
