    Jo-han ' 60 Desoto
    I showed off a sneak peek at this one in the Jo-han models thread. Here it is now, with the foil done and the wash added to the panel lines.The paint is Duplicolor bright aqua teal, with Krylon Dual satin ivory on the roof. The interior is Duplicolor GM light blue, and some shade of white that I can't remember. This is just a quick mockup to see if I like my choice of wheels (Moebius ' 56 300).
    Approval is given.

    There's some beautiful cars in this thread, and Steve your collection is mouth watering.
    Since I showed off my "builts", here's a shot of the one I'm building, the ' 60 Desoto. Just have the passenger side wheel wells and rocker panel left to foil, and the hood ornament. Then I'll add some wash to the panel lines, do a couple small touch ups, blah, blah. I'm thinking of using the wire wheels and whitewalls from a Moebius ' 56 300.

    Thanks, Harry. I wonder if it's the fact that the Hudson has two mirrors that does it for you.

    Thanks for the compliments! I don't believe I posted the Dukes Charger, but indeed all the rest were shared here.
    This won't get finished this year, but it's next. Finally have the paint polished and foil started on the ' 60 Desoto. Hopefully, I'll finish it up early next year.

    of 2015. Magnificent only because I actually managed to finish this many, compared to 2014's dismal output of three.

    These kits make great street machines, and you did it justice! I did mine with a big block.

    Thanks for the comments. In regard to the wheels, yes there is a triangular depression there, not a hole. And I did indeed paint it red, though it didn't show up well outdoors. I've also since "frosted" the front turn signals, using a white gel pen. And Harry, if nothing else kits like this have one great thing going for them. The holes are already there, so you have to put the mirrors on.

    A few more.

    Another one, all done. Seemed to take me awhile, perhaps I was just savoring it. The build thread is here.

    Wow, long road to get to here. But, I don't make excuses for myself. Speed just is not and won't ever be one of my building traits. I'll work on the firewall next and putting the windows in. Hopefully soon!

    My late uncle John, whom I'll always remember quite fondly had a blue ' 79. Except for the color, this is his car.
    Thanks for the look back, that's a gorgeous replica!
  15. smellyfatdude added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    I went to the lhs yesterday, and they had absolutely none of the new kits I've been waiting for. But, they had this. I've wanted one for awhile, and if you factor in shipping I couldn't have bought one online at this price. Everything is indeed there, and the decals are just fine.
