Looking for Flap Jack

13 July 2014 - 07:12 AM

This one seems a little tougher to find. I'd take a complete glue bomb or unbuilt.

 

 

 

It's the old story, had one as a kid and want another shot at it. Plus, it's just to darned cool.

Looks like it's Dave Deal day for some of us. here is another that's been long done but has been put away out of sight for some time now. Duplicolor red with dechromed exhaust. I tried my hand at faux wood on the prop. Came out pretty cool for a first try.

Glitter Bug

Another one that got almost finished and then stashed. It's been complete for quite a while and it usually sits here at my computer desk to give me a giggle now and then. OOB with some parts box decals. I think it's Tamiya French blue, with K&S injector stacks and reworked exhaust. I also redid the antennae and since I am a NAPA employee I found this GPC logo on a flyer and made the flag.

I started this kit about 2 1/2 years ago. I was looking through some kits and realized it was 90% done so I sat down and finished it.

Mostly Vallejo acrylics with a Future barrier. I couldn't get the pilot in there and get the canopy on right so his finished head is roiling around in the box.

Dave Deal kits are a blast and this is about my 10th complete of his. The Go Mad Nomad is next.

Last Of The V8 Interceptors

One of my favorite movies and cars of all time, the fabled V8 Interceptor. Here it is in its final configuration, road worn all almost out of petrol.

This was such a fun build and i thank Aoshima for upgrading it with PE, chain and cardboard Dinky Dog dog food boxes. The interior is a masterpiece of accuracy to the original. You basically pick the correct parts, shoot em semi black and that's it. I painted the flat black hood and sides but only the hood is clear to see. I used Vallejo pigments for the red earth and secured it with isopropyl from my airbrush.
