    It finally stopped raining for a while so I got to do some painting. The Testors gloss white paint is junk, and I threw it in the garbage. Now I have to strip the door panels, but I came up with a new paint scheme for the interior that I think will look nicer then my plan.
    This is the body color.


    Primed the body, and found it needed more sanding. Maybe some color tomorrow if the rain holds off.

    Maybe paint on the body tomorrow if the rain holds off. I also painted the frame and some small stuff so I can get wheels under it and it'll lokk like a car.

    AMT 51 Chevy convertible custom update 5/27
    I'm taking a break from my Chaparral build and doing this one.

    I normally do my builds as street and strip or street hot rod but the custom version of this one looks so slick I'm going to do it this way.

    I'm using this motor rather than the six because I want to do a late 20's early 30's hot rod with a six.

    I stripped the trim off the body and opened the rear wheel openings like the box shows.

    Playing around.

    I need a day with no rain so I can start painting.

    I've put this one away for a while. I can't do the job as good as I want and was getting frustrated with it so I need a break from this one.

    Those wheels look nice. Maybe for the other kit. New pictures.
    I've never paint a figure before. so this will be fun or not!!

    Primed.

    I taped in intake in to see how it looked.

    Drivers first time in the seat since the kit was hatched in

    Monogram Chaparral Coupe 5/10 Update
    I'm doing a simpler kit for now. These cars were my favorite race cars back in the day, and I raced many of them in 1/24 slot cars. While it's a simple kit I'm going to work on my detailing skills to make it nice.

    The nose is a little rough.


    The first trial fit.

    It kinda looks like a Batmobile?
    Years ago I bought this kit and started it, then put it away. I wasn't skilled enough to do it justice. It's build time is coming soon.

    Revell 37 Ford Convertible w/trailer

    A couple of firsts for me on this kit. First time I polished the colored molded kit, and my first box stock build.


    I left the top of the trailer loose so I can get some luggage to fill it up.

    I'm going to check the Hazleton PA store tomorrow. I went up late last week and found a Lindburg 31 Bugatti Royale Victoria that I picked up. But still no big dump of kits.

    Thanks for the looks and the kind words.

    Thanks, When I got the Kurtis the box referred to two kits that would come with the trailer hitch, an older woodie wagon and the 50 Ford pick up.Since I hadn't built a pick up since before I started shaving I went that way.
