  1. I agree with the better choice being Molotow, but i had already used Alclad for the rear bumper and the few other chrome parts so i want it to match. Thanks for the replies, i think I'll take your advice and spray the chrome last.
  2. I'm getting ready to paint a '57 Chevy funny car. The molded in front bumper is going to be painted chrome using Alclad. I have already painted it gloss black to prep for the chrome. My question is would it be better to paint the body and tape the black and paint the chrome last, or can i paint the chrome now and tape it off before painting the body? I'm not sure how Alclad would hold up being taped.
  3. Very clean, nice work. Love nostalgia drag racing subjects.
  4. Very nice looking ride, love the weathering work, very convincing!
  5. Great looking model! Love the engine detail work and the undercarriage weathering.
  6. Very clean looking build, I love Tamiya's quality. Was the mesh for the grille part of the detail set or did you source it from somewhere else?
  7. I don't post a lot of models on the forum, mainly because i build at a glacial speed, but when i do guys are usually pretty fair in their assessment of my work. I build because i enjoy it, it's super frustrating at times and extremely enjoyable other times. I have yet to build a model i am completely happy with, i know most of its flaws, but an outside point of view from someone is helpful. It's a very subjective hobby, we all have differing views on what constitutes quality work. As long as I'm happy with the model, I improved my skills, picked up some helpful tips from the forum, and maybe inspired someone, then it's all good.
  8. Very nice looking, love the color
  9. Very cool looking model, great job on the weathering. Some day I've got to get the guts to try weathering a vehicle. Outdoor shots on a trail in Prescott would really set it off!
  10. Looks really nice, good job!
  11. That is a gorgeous color, great paint job and detail work. Very nice Chevelle! Would love to have the 1:1 in my driveway!
  12. Very, very nice!! Great detail and decal work.
  13. Amazing scratchbuilding skills, incredibly clean build, beautiful detail and paint which all adds up to one phenomenal model.
