In Topic: Revell "Orange Crate" '32 Ford Sedan Hot Rod

13 April 2012 - 01:42 PM

I just finished the engine build up; some poor alignment of pins and holes and "de-chromed" blemishes near attachment points. Still looks pretty good from a few feet away. I'm dreading the all- chrome frame. I'm going to substitute the thin plastic rear axle with a brass rod of similar thickness to give more strength to the rear frame assembly.

While all of these are light years beyond my building skills, I still find them inspiring and motivational. Thanks for sharing your skills and photos in this most impressive array of eye candy.

Love the color combo of both body and wheels. Great job! What brand/color of paint did you use?

That interior looks so real. Nice work!

In Topic: Rustoluem sprays and their Colorshift Galaxy Blue

09 August 2011 - 10:16 AM

I've started an '86 Monte Carlo and decided to use it as a guinea pig for the new Rustoleum colorshift paints. This is Galaxie blue. It looks more purple than blue but that's because it shifts so quickly in the light. it's really hard to capture how it looks with my camera but it really is a deep blue (at times). it lays down really smooth and reacts well with Rustoleum clear lacquer. The black basecoat is super important. I had one tiny speck about the size of a pinhead on the trunk where I wetsanded too agressively through the black lacquer and despite its miniscule size, it showed and required a re-do. I will definitely use this paint again. I'm a big fan of Rustoleum lacquers anyway.
