    Did alittle motor work the other day. Not done by no means but it's a start.

    Yeah I understand that it isn't exactly PCP but the paint said " shimmery " aaaahhhhh yeah I'm calling PCP ! LOL Usually all the ones I have seen have black interior with chrome. Just trying something different but not TOO different.

    Plum crazy purple with what interior color
    OK taking some time away from my diorama building to make up a few cars for it. Started this Charger. Found a new paint at the hobby store and thought I would give it a shot. Even without it being cleared yet it looks pretty good to me but now I have to find an interior color to match. I am going for a cross between a stock and a street Charger. Thought about going with sheer sheet metal look but I want it also to be a cruiser. Any ideas ?

    Did a little work in the shop. Made a small cleaning station out of a 55 gallon drum. Also am working on a couple shop heaters.

    went a head and finished up the lathe workbench. Not sure if this is the final resting place for it but it fits pretty good. If I leave it here I will need to run the electric to it and also make a 55 gallon waste barrel for all the metal chips and garbage.

    Still working on the lathe and workbench. Lathe is almost done just gotta cast a better tool box for the shelf.

    Well it has been awhile.....with work, moving twice, work and family I am finally getting back to this shop. Finally have a place for all my stuff so I can get back to work. Here is a new project I have started for the shop.
    I needed to start building some work benches for the mechanics. This one is just roughed in. Still need to sand it down. The tool box mold had some air bubbles in it ( hate when that happens ) so it is just for mock up purposes. I will mold and paint a new one later. On top of the bench is the starts of a machinist lathe.
    Did alittle bit more work to the lathe. Sanded down some edges and built the bed to sit on top of the lathe and started the handles for speed and direction.
    placed a couple of positioning holes and pegs. Needs more sanding and some filler. Reasoning behind the positioning pegs is to be able to take the table off to sand, fill, built the compound, paint and to make a mold of the finish lathe so to be casted in resin. You know how it is, you build something it is very hard to make another exactly the same.

    Thanks I just got lucky on the graphics, sometimes you think something will work and most of the time it doesn't. As I said before I work extra hard on my decal making to make up for lack in my other skills as a modeler. Next I am gonna try to do a zombie Voodoo car. Hope it turns out as good.

    Thanks DrKerry ! I really think the blacked out windows and black wing really set it off. Now onto some frame and motor work.

    Ok getting closer now. Got the back wing painted and installed. Also installed the black glass. I have to do the front glass, but I'm thinking it was a good idea. Really makes it stand out.
