    65 Bonnaville..patience tester...
    Okay..well here it is..I've had this kit stored away in my garage for probably more than 20 years and I guess time, heat, and cold took its toll here because nothing went together smoothly on this one. I had fiment issues off the bat with the front and rear bumpers as you can see in the pics the front end went together horribly no matter what I tried..talk about frustration...the rear not so much the clear parts were all warped..The paint I used wicked colors pearl red which sprayed on quite nicely I've used it before no problems.. but then I used testors one coat wet look clear lacquer."big mistake" I tried using a couple light easy coats then finished with a heavy coat and it orange peeled and had a very rough finish that was the first time and last time I'm using that..I usually use Tamiya clear coat with beautiful results so lesson learned..I guess I got so frustrated and lost patience on this one I just sloppily threw it together...anyway I thought throw a pic of my latest builds to make myself feel a little better..sorry for venting..and I hope there are some redeeming qualities in this one...thanks

    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
