I strongly suggest that you use a mirrored base display to show all your hard and awsome work. I am a believer of "just off the line" look, but this is out of the ordinary so far. Keep up the good work and lets see it finished.
I vote for the Mach 1. A boss 302 with no shaker scoop just doesn't do it for me. Unless of course you do the required surgery. Or you can always do a custom 1970 boss 351. Look here for some ideas. https://www.google.com/search?q=boss+351+mustang&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=jcMwU8WhI8OCyQGp34HwAg&ved=0CCUQsAQ&biw=1280&bih=671
Oh Nooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!! It's turning into a plum crazy purple Mopar!
Just kidding! I have nothing against Mopars!......! .
Nice work so far! Your photos have some heavy shadows. Try moving around your lighting so the shine and body lines of the model show much better. (Just my 2 cents for what they are worth).
I remember how nice these cars looked. If you looked at them from certain angles they reminded you of a smaller '69/'70 Mustang. Especially when painted yellow with black stripes and trim.I also remember they were prone to rust very quickly, at least they did here in New England.
Great job on your built. Love those clean lines and flawless shine.
I don't like enamels either. That smell is too much. When your'e at the shop check out the Tamiya and Testors lacquers (clear coat also) in spraycans. Testors has original colors for muscle cars of the 60s and 70s. Neither one needs a clear coat. Just a good wetsanding with a fine sandpaper and then wax it just like your real car. If you do use clear over the decals be careful as it might atack them. Do very light mist coats.
Hope this helped!
If you are looking to make a model of the nascar cars of the past few years you might be disappointed as no big company like revell or amt makes them. There are some resin limited productions by smaller companies. But if you are looking to do a 2007-8 or prior to, then you will not have a problem. There are plenty of kits and after market decals. A quick search on google will turn up hundreds. Also ebay is a good start and reference on what's available.
Keep on modelling!!!!!
After a disappointing first try to build this kit I put it away. But now that you reminded me of it I pulled it out and it looks like I'll go for round two. I primered the body with white primer and tomorow I will start sanding. Surprised that you had a hard time finding one. They were dirt cheap on ebay a while back. I probably have a few in my stash.
Keep up the good work! .... and lets see it finished!
