    10Thumbs - I have another of those Trabants. I was thinking of slamming it, painting it a matte color - so may the injected small block will be included.

    Thanks for the comment, guys. . I'm all for more detail - I may check out reference photos to see where those headlight wires go.

    Renault, Citroen, Trabant
    I can't believe how long it took me to get around to building these models. Maybe a year! I thought they would be Winter 2015 builds. Of the bunch, the Trabant was the toughest, mostly because of the trim. With the other builds, I tried my hand at making workable hinges and it turned out ok. I used reference photos of the 1:1 cars to decide on the color schemes. Purchased some aftermarket decals for the Renault.

    Love the brake lines - and the whole build is great

    Thanks for the comments everybody. 
    Greg, the colors on the Hudson are Model Master Fifties Aqua #2942 and Light Ivory #2909. (Hey, my sister lives in double bay, AU. Was married to Murray Rose.)
    Dave - wow you did the decal art on that Tim Flock racer and lived next to the Ms! That's cool!
    Stephen - the foil is kind of a pain. But I try to replicate the 1:1 versions so if they have chrome, I'm in. Taking me a while but finally figured out that prepping for the foil is a must - just like painting, if you've got bumps or debris where the foil goes - it gets picked up once you put it on. Curves are also a pain.

    Two Chryslers and a Hudson
    Before I start the next round of builds I took some shots of finished models.
    The first is the Hudson - I saw some versions in Scale Auto Enthusiast and liked this color combo. The next is the Chrysler 300. I had to paint that with Krylon to get the right color. Difficult to work with and next time out I would do the scribe lines deeper. Then finally the Tim Flock Racer. All relatively stock with some aftermarket.
    The last shot are my plans for the Winter

    Just finished the last of the summer stash of models. Time to pick 2 or 3 more, paint them before winter sets in, and build them when the snow is surrounding the house.

    Chris...you chose wisely

    Wow, Mark. You hit it right on. The Chevy kit was a nightmare to fit together and yes, it does look overweight and the stance is too high, despite using the "lowering" blocks! Now it make sense with the age of the kit, and now the fact it's produced in China. Of course it couldn't be the way I built it, right? No, never, of course not
