Many happy returns, Dave. Hopefully we'll have some type of chat back before much longer and I'll be able to catch up with you.

Chopped T is down to fitting the cycle fenders, headlights, and some details. Next up is a Studebaker Avanti. I'm building it as if it were racing in the '66 Trans-am series.

Oh, just what I need -- another project.. But this os Ford month at the model car club, so I'm going to build a chopped T w/ the engine from the Dragula. It's either gonna be cool, or WAY over the op.

Primer problems with the Jag are solved. It's ready for some gloss white. I changed my mind on the Surfite's color. It's going to lime gold metalflake. It's Roth. It must be wild. :-)

Ugh. This Jag is going to kill me. Looks like I used the wrong thinner and none of the primer adhered. Strip it off and switch to enamels. Goodbye acrylics -- again.

Patio cleared enough for painting. Primed the surfite, and added another coat of primer to an Aurora Batplane that has been WIP for way too long. XJR-9 gets its second coat of primer tonight.

I can't paint until we get more of my daughter's move-back stuff off the patio.
So, I'm doing what any decent model car builder would do -- start another model. I picked up a Surfite at the Lower Left Coast NNL. I'm going to paint it Pearl Blue with a Burgundy interior/accent color. I'm also going to try embossing powder on the floor and headliner.

Have two cars under construction; a Jag XJR-9 and a Surfite. Does that get me the "eclectic" badge? :-)

Thanks for stopping by.
I like to model all kinds of cars; hot rods, customs, dragsters, race cars, even the occasional airplane or spacecraft. Am getting back to building after a longish hiatus.
