    Thanks,
    Yes, you have a good point. Nom i'm trying to figure out a way to do this step. Think I'll try the drybrush technique... what do you think ?

    Finally I took my DSLR out of the closet to provide you better pics !

    Here are the last progress.

    The frame done


    Frame + Engine almost done


    Last mock-up before final "glueing" (right term ???)




    For the front grill, I made a custom one from a piece of aluminium brush plastic at work with a laser engraving system. Here is the design


    Here is the final result of the grill, but please help me decide, don't know if I go with my custom grill or one of the 2 optional that was with the kit

    So, after a few days of break, here is an update.

    Fast mid-progress mock-up


    I think I won't go the same way it "should be".
    The interior will be simple but clean. All the mechanical parts and the frame will be clean and rust free.
    For the chasis, i want a rough look, so it will be rusty.

    As I worked in a compagny that produce signs, I have the chance to have the hand on a nice paint kit.
    What I liked is it's waterbase paint, so easy to clean.
    You have different color in the paint. I choosed the bronze.


    Once painted, you have the choice for the aging process.


    I'm gonna use a mix of them. As I wanted a rough look, I applied the paint with a brush insteed of an airbrush. The results is perfect.
    Here is a pics of the bodyparts paint. (No aging yet)


    Forgot to show the dent I made on the passanger door and on the bottom of the trunk

    In the week-end, it's hard to find time with the kids !
    I made a little progress. Here we go !

    Finished sanding the chasis. It's not perfect but I wanted it this way as it's a ratrod. I wanted a rough look.


    Started working on the interior


    And finally, little progress on the engine
