  1. parkflyrer 50 added a post in a topic Another"65.. Pontiac Bonneville This time..   

    Bonnie update..removed very few mold lines, the quality of this kit is pretty good although its a fairly simple kit with not too many parts. I  primed and painted the body / hood and some kind of rear interior cover (not sure if I'm go on a use it) using wicked acrylics color pearl red slightly reduced with wicked reducer it air brushed on very nicely..the pics don't do this color justice it just pops with nice pearl and metallic I was very surprised at the color. It should look pretty good being I'm going mild custom wit it..

    Thanks foxer..it's all good..I know these were tug boats on wheels but that was Detroit steel at its best or worst..as far as thinning the folkart paint I used future floor polish about 50/50 mix and the testors white I didn't thin at all..thanks for the comments guys

    I got the interior just about done. I was thinking of putting a white stripe in the center of the front seats and on the back but it started to look kinda funny so I decided against it..and went with matching the body color with chrome accents. I liked the tips on painting the body script..so any ideas on the dashboard speedo lettering??also gotta get seat belts..LHS was all out

    65 Galaxie update bmf
    So I got the BMF put on. That went fairly smooth there were a couple of rough spots.. one of the roof railing was molded very thin hopefully not too noticeable. I removed the Galaxie 500 script off the front fenders for a smoother look plus I'm not very good at that small detailing yet. If anyone out there knows a good way of painting lettering script such as on the hood and trunk as pictured please let me know how to do it.. I tried using BMF and that didn't work for me unless there's a special way of doing it. thanks very much
