So cool having the forum back up. Here's my most recent build. This is the rather old 1/24 Lincoln Continental built as a curbside rust slammer of sorts. Actually it started off as an experiment in doing a patina finish that went fairly well so I went ahead and finished it. As far as the kit goes, it wasn't too bad, but it shows its age and was troublesome in spots. The suspension was lowered quite a bit from stock height as it looks much better in the weeds. Thanks for looking, all comments, kudos, critiques etc welcomed as always.

Wow...that body style is a natural for the treatment you've given it. Perfect rake and stance, very believable patina. Seriously cool.

That's really neat. A car you usually don't see like this. Nice weathering, and I love the added "vintage" style pic!

Thanks for all the kudos on my Lincoln! I debated on whether to rust the chrome, then I found a photo of a patina'ed car with a new chrome at a car show and liked the looks of it. Old and new, shiny and brown hue. :D
