  1. Thanks fellas!! I appreciate the good word. James: I saw that one when it was done and it does indeed look good man. Two thumbs up!!! I started on the chassis by getting the brake rotors and brake calipers all ready. I really wished there were some "Camaro" scripts for the calipers as they are going to be extremely visible through the wheels. But...that's that and they aint there so....moving on now. I also started the aluminum shielding for the exhaust painting this morning. I'll be touching up the chassis in areas that didn't get adequate coverage/ overspray/ or totally missed in the days coming.
  2. Man....you sure put a shine on that one Dan. WOW!!
  3. The only chrome parts in the whole kit were the wheels and these aren't supposed to be chrome. They are more of a silver with a contrasting darker color used for the inlay areas of the wheel. So I went to work by stripping all of the chrome off of the wheels and cleaning them up. Here they are finished up. One of the problems with silver is that any leftover flash at all will show up in pictures. In real life you've really gotta be looking to see it. I used Vallejo Silver for the wheels and shaded the darker areas with ground up black pastel. Just didn't feel comfortable painting the inlay areas. I then put a dot of Molotow Chrome on the lugnuts and then used a toothpick to apply MM Chrome Silver to the Bowtie emblem in the middle of each wheel.
  4. This'll be fun to watch. Looking forward to more Bill!
  5. No problem dude. I'm really looking forward to this.
  6. Thanks fellas. Will be resuming this one starting tomorrow.
  7. That stuff is like Liquid Gold. I use it for every paint job....even on my aviation subjects. Will be watching this beauty come together Bob.
  8. Love what you did with this car. Beautiful work indeed.
  9. Man.....you just did such a beautiful job with this kit. I mean, you really nailed it.
  10. Awesome detailing. I noticed that you bevel cut the headers and that looks great. You put some really good effort into this one Tom!!
  11. Thanks Bill! I sanded off the lettering on the Goodyear tires and then smoothed it all out and used some BF Goodrich decals that I got from Slixx. After several coats of Microsol over the decals to get them to lay down smooth with no silvering, I applied some Model Master Flat Clear over the sidewalls of the tire to blend the decal in. I'll have to take a look at that Camaro of yours. Really appreciate the great comments Francis. I did indeed have alot of fun building this one as I almost had one of these for a first car. I'm currently working on a 2017 Camaro "Fiftieth" Edition in the WIP section. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us man.👍 Thanks Danno! 'Preciate it bud.
  12. From a modeling and photography standpoints.....what a beauty!!!!
  13. Beautiful color choice and excellent build!!!
  14. What a great result on this beautiful car. Color, detailing and overall construction are just "all that"!!! Two thumbs up here!!
  15. Lots of great detailing throughout the build that no doubt took a lot of patience and dedication to accomplish. Your efforts on this build are to be commended.
  16. Say.....that's a nice car you built!! You got any more pictures of it bud. Would love to see 'em!!
  17. I like that color and your build came out top notch!!
  18. VERY cool subject. I can remember a time when we could see plenty of these on the road and it's always nice to see something like this built up. Very well done Grzegorz.
  19. No problem Mike. Al hit it right on the head of the nail about the article showing up in Scale Auto. I think I even have the issue. It was indeed in Scale Auto and you're right. I forgot about not using mist coats even though I've used the method they described a few times already. Thanks for the re-reminder!
  20. I got a chance to see one of these cars at Dick's Classic Garage in San Marcos, Tx when it was still open. I developed an appreciation for these cars because they are nothing short of beautiful. You've done an excellent job of bringing that beauty to life with your model build. This turned out very well Andrew!!
  21. Thank you, guys, as well as all who have encouraged me along the way with the Z-28 part of this build. You guys are awesome!! I forgot to mention it last week but the Z-28 part of this build has been in the Under Glass Section for a few days now:
  22. Man that color is electric!! Very well-built car with a great looking interior and chassis details Simon!!
  23. That right there is some mighty fine and fancy footwork on that car!! Very nicely done!!!
  24. I used Spaztix through an airbrush on my Molotow that I shot over some wheels over 4 years ago and they haven't lost their shine yet. Stuff works.
  25. Not on this one Mike. I used Alclad Chrome on the front bumpers. I really should've done that on the rear bumper for uniformity but the front bumperettes are pretty close to the kit chrome of the rear one outside of the pictures.
