1969 cougar

19 November 2012 - 12:58 PM

For those of you that have seen this during construction, here is the finished product. This kit had multiple coats of black paint over a bubbly yellow coat of paint. Body was stripped with easy off cleaner and painted plum crazy purple. Engine is wired and interior flocked (by my 8 year old daughter). She went crazy with it , but I think the interior looks good. This kit fought me every step of the way. I mean literally every step of the way ( I guess that's how you become a better modeler). The crushed pillars would not straighten. However, it turned out to be a nice shelf model that I built with my daughter, She is proud as I am of her. She is getting more and more interested in this hobby and I am trying to keep it fun for her (budding modeler). My next kit is going to be a nice quick box stock build.

1969 Cougar saved

I received this Cougar about 15 years ago. As for the before pics, I don't have any. Imagine it was shot in a nice bubbly yellow with 10 coats of gloss black on top of that. There were air bubbles throughout the paint. I stripped the paint with Easy Off in the summer (July-ish). From this past Friday until tonight I think I made some progress. This was the first time i tried to wire an engine. I still have to foil, detail and do final assembly. Thanks for looking.

The interior was sprayed with "Make it Suede" spray paint from any craft store. It does run hot and has a nice maple syrup smell. Anyway it comes in a few shades and is about $7.99 for a krylon size spray can.
