I am calling this one finished,,,.
I bought a few months back on a whim,,thinking I would get to it someday.
After doing a google image search for my files,,,someday turned into that day. This car just looked to cool.
I pushed everything else aside and dove right in.
Painted in gloss black laquer, duplicolor red coves and Upol urethane clear top coat. The polished out with rubbing compund followed by a light waxing to make her shine.
Interrior is done in the same duplicolor red with white accents. Embossing powder for the carpeting look . And Tamiya dark red for the top boot .
I had to repair the broken vent wing frame so I was afraid of pushing to hard to really polish out the BMF but thruned out pretty good .
Chassis is done in red primer with some details picked out with testors enamels .
All the chrome is new Modelhaus stuff ( originals are bagged and put away and will get replated someday later on whne I get enough to make it costs effective )
Its not perfect. As I build for me not contests. But this one is hands down my favorite build that I've ever done. And looks killer in my case . I have to get a super fine tipped brush then I plan to redo the black on the side vents .
Also Ive attached a picture that was my insperation. I thought about all black or with white coves instead ,,but the black and red looked just looked right so I had to do it.
comments of all kinds welcome.
Thanks for cking in
