Peter:

Can you post some interior photos?

I painted mine using Model Master "Light Ivory", which is perhaps a tad lighter shade, but close enough for what I wanted.

I was thinking about shaving off the scripts and stuffing a 6-cylinder in mine, but the lure of the 409 is too much......

What a lovely build Peter! I love the colour - not too loud. Can't see any dust in the engine bay! That 'chrome before paint' technique on the scripts really works well. I have never tried it, but I'll have to give it a go now.

Nice work, Peter. That interior really does capture the "fawn" color quite well. What paint did you use for that?

Now that is a superb 62!

 

The last thing I'd expect to see from a New Zealander living in Switzerland is an Arkansas Razorbacks license plate!  :lol:

new Zealander switZerland RaZorbacks...seems logical to me. ;)

Thanks so much everybody.

Charlie, after some experimentation I wound up airbrushing a mix of Zero acrylics with Alclad Chrome (!), one colour for the dash and another for the seats and walls. The walls needed a second, darker colour also, according to the only photos I could find and I did that with a Humbrol mix. I always mix my own colours, with varying degrees of success, but I have done it in the past professionally for the graphic industry and enjoy that aspect of painting.

Very nice build of one of the finest looking cars of the '60s! The Engine Detail is very nice, and of course it is great to see a W-Block under the hood. Excellent paint work also and the look of this car is just perfect. Tires and all are just like 1:1 pieces. Incredible work.

Being a Razorback Fan myself, I must say that I like the build!!  Very nice car,

especially the License Plate!!!  :)   I'm working on a 64 myself.

 

Anyway, I do have a question for you.  Can you describe this "BMF before Paint"

Method?  Not sure I've heard of that but apparently it works pretty well based

on the pics of your car!

 

Nice Job!

 

Steve

I've described the method here somewhere but it's well buried. I'll do a tutorial soon.

EDIT..... Check out Marcos Cruz' recent Opel in Under Glass. He describes the BMF before Paint technique - that's pretty much what I do.
