A lot of work!!!

This is going to be so excellent when you finish it.

I'm massively impressed.

Thanks for the comment.

 

I've been forking on detailing the motor in ways I don't usually bother with after finding some Detail Master braided hose in my stuff box. Been adding a fuel system, oil lines and a distributer. It's all delicate so I just work a bit and let it set up for a day or two and go back. The body's ready for paint but I need to make sure the windshield fits right first so I don't have to handle it a lot after the paint job. Need to install the engine to do that... Domino theory of model building.

Been detailing the chassis and messing with my 1:1 Mustang project, but this is where I am now.

 

I built this shield thing out of scrap balsa wood for the three tone paint I wanted to do and this is how it worked out. It let me paint and lightly sand each color one at a time without building up a lot of paint layers. It's a bit rough in finish and needs sanding and a clear coat. I wound up not liking the color transitions and added a free hand shot of red to make it a bit hotter and more organic in the blending of colors. I'll show that later.

Thanks. I tried it freehand on my sacrificial 55 Chevy Pro Sportsman and didn't do a good job. I just seem to need a lot of structure to make stuff like this work.

Thanks. I tried it freehand the first time and it didn't work out very well. I just seem to need a lot of structure to make stuff like this work. (No joke here)
