    Thanks! There were a lot of great builds there this year. I know my kids had fun building and entering.

    Thanks for the comments! I tend to get excited the closer I get to finishing, and miss things like the tires! I'll fix those soon. As requested, a picture with the hood on, though the blower is actually Gun Metal, not black.

    Not a bad kit, front valence panel needs tweeking to fit properly, overall I liked it. Painted with Hemi Orange high temp engine paint.

    Got this one finished and in Under Glass.

    I've had a few that the foil started to peel off, either from handling or just over time (a few months). I cleared over the last one I did, and so far it's good.
    The wood grain I did by painting Tamiya XF-59 Desert Yellow, then dry brushing over that with Tamiya X-33 Bronze making the grain effect, then over that with Tamiya X-26 Clear Orange.

    Got a bit more done on this one. Interior is finished minus the roll bar, and the engine and foil work. Not a bad kit so far.

    Thanks! The Hemi Orange shines up pretty well.

    The paint is Duoli-Color.

    Thanks for the comments!
    I've foiled before the clear on only one other car, and it seemed to work well, though I didn't wet sand the clear on that one. I figure that clearing over the foil will help protect it from the handling it'll get during the rest of the assembly.
    The paint brand I don't recall off the top of my head, I'll get it for you in the morning. It is a high temp engine enamel, Hemi Orange. A real nice colour, it has some metal flake in it that really looks good after the wet sanding was done.

    Got a start on this one. Painted with High-temp Hemi Orange engine paint and wet sanded. Once foiling is done I'll clear and polish it.

    Looks great! I love the redlines and steelies!

    Thanks! This is the first car I've weathered, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! I loved adding the little things like the rotor and rag. Next time I'm going to try tearing up seats and cracking glass.

    Finally got this done! I leaned a lot with this build, and look forward to applying that to the next one. I leaned too late that the wings on these cars are aluminum and not steel, otherwise I'm happy with how this turned out!

    Got this wrapped up! I'm not sure if I'll keep the distributor cap and wires there or not, they keep the hood from closing. I may put the hinges on the hood and leave it open. More pics in Under Glass.

    Huh, didn't know that, thanks! Too late tot change it know. One more thing on the list of stuff I've learned on this build.
