1964 Ford Falcon Sprint

06 January 2013 - 06:23 AM

After receiving such a warm welcome as I presented my first model in this thread I decided to present my second one.
 
The model kit is the Trumpeter Falcon Sprint of 1964:

The kit went together very well. Only the chrome of the bumpers had some flaws. So I decided to de-chrome them, gave them a shot with Testors enamel glossy black and applied Alclad Chrome.
 
I followed the first time the 'Donn Yost' method for airbrushing this model and I have to say that Donn made my day  :D
It came out without any orange peel and there was absolutely no need for any clear coat. Only two or three dust particles had to be polished out. The color choice was Testor's bright yellow.
 
I replaced the kit's wheels with wheels from Scale Production and added some disc brakes. The front was lowered so that a horizontal stance could be achieved.

Just want to show my first finished model after not being in this hobby for 20 years.

Model Kit is this one:

It has been painted with Porsche Turquoise Green Metallic from Zero Paints followed by a 2-part clearcoat from Standox. Interior was airbrushed with self-mixed greens (Vallejo colors). Carpets were flocked and seat belts created with PE parts from Model Car Garage with Tamiya masking tape.

Any ideas how to replicate wiper fluid bags?

I'm wondering whether there is anybody out there who replicated a windshield wiper fluid bag like this one:

Any ideas will be appreciated.
