    Still working on the Comet, almost finished really, but just last night I shot some clear on the body and I wanted to share the results. I have never used clear before, honestly this is my first try! I really like how it turned out, I think this car is going to look pretty good when I am finished, take a look!

    I know you have seen this already DC, I wanted to share with others here. This is the same kit, mine was a bomber I got on ebay. The engine was assembled but unpainted as well as the chassis. I froze it all and then broke it all back down and started over. Anyway, turned out ok, it's a great kit for sure!

    I had to re-position the engine in the frame, it was crooked, and then I had to file down the exhaust manifolds to get them to fit. They are now painted and installed and the frame is attached to the floor pan. I also got the glass installed as well. Here are a couple of photos. I have a drive shaft that I created out of tubing that is ready to install and I have a set of wheels and tires that I finally decided on that are ready to install also. Hopefully I can get that done tonight and begin final assembly. This is my entry for the Autism Awareness Model Car Contest that is going on over on YouTube. I'm not normally a contest guy but I wanted to show my support for my friend J.C. Cline and other families touched by Autism.


    Here is the underside of the beast. Yes the floor pan is yellow and the frame is burgundy red. I can't explain the color choices, sorry! lol


    Another shot of the body. I removed the door handles and all the badging including the long side trim the extends all the way nack into the wing portion of the rear panels. I like a clean body and I can't stand BMF a problem I think I will need to overcome someday. (or so I'm told!)





    Thanks for looking and stuff, I'll post more pics as I get it up on wheels and get some chrome installed ect. Take care. -dp

    Awesome work man, those coil overs are sweet, it all looks really great, but I love the coilovers!

    Ruben, my buddy from Lodi! Thanks man, it's finally coming together I think. I have a few hurdles to clear but I think I will make it in time for the contest thing. I have been lurking and reading here as well, so many talented builders and great cars, I really like this forum a lot so I had to just jump in and get involved. I heard there is some sort of model show in Stockton this weekend, is that the car show\swap thing at the fairgrounds? Have you heard of this?

    '57 300C
    My other work in progress is this '57 300C. I had this crazy idea that it would be cool to give it a modern muscle twist since I had this Viper motor lying around. Anyway I am just getting to the fitment stage of this build after spending a lot of time on body work and paint. The engine just squeezes in there and the only thing left is finishing a down pipe from the V10 headers to the 300C exhaust, well there's more I am sure! Also, I got a Photobucket so hopefully my posts will work better. Thanks for looking!

    '67 Mecury Comet Cyclone GT
    I'm kinda new here and pretty new and modeling for that matter, but I thought I would just go ahead and share what's on my bench. I'm building this AMT '67 Comet Cyclone GT. I painted it satin midnight blue and it's been lowered a bit. Hope you like it, I would like to post more as I go, still finding my way around this forum, take care. -dp

    Honestly, I'm color blind! I was really asking cause I wasn't sure. Such a cool color though, I just can't put a name to it...

    Thought you might enjoy this photo of a friend taken in 1956 of his '50 Olds. I really love the color of this car, would you say this is the sea green?
