I have been working on this for a while now but have taken many breaks, as I usually do with all models. I have most of the cockpit done with just a little more detailing it will be complete. LMK what you guys think and where improvements can occur. Thanks.
I started to build this kit for another clubs site community build. The theme is "Dream build" and you build what you would like to own in a 1:1 scale. I love them '59 Cadillacs so I picked me up that pink Monogram kit and started. I just started and thought I would share the pics with you. The body will be getting a couple coats of metallic purple and than a couple of clear, along with a whole lot of chrome. Let me know what you guys think.
The start of the engine:
The body already scribed, couple coats of metallic black, and flames painted in diamond dust.
I have been looking for this kit for some time now. Finally a member on this site made a trade with me. I was told that the gentleman actually received this same kit from another trade he made. After getting this kit I took some pics and immediately took it apart. I put the body in the purple pond and it seemed that due to the age of the kit the paint was falling right off. While the paint was being stripped I did some research on this kit. While I thought it was just an old kit something did not seem right when I took it apart. The rear axle had grooves in it like it used to hold something. After researching more I came to the conclusion that this kit is actually a "friction promo". If I am wrong or if someone has more info for me, please do tell.
Here are some pics of what is going on with the kit so far. The first 2 pics are of the color scheme I am contemplating.
