    Welcome Pete, looks like your putting your saw to good use here... Don't be surprised if they move this to the proper section.

  5. Chaparral

    I remember seeing the Chaparrals race as a kid, very cool subject. And your model looks great, nicely detailed and clean. (I have never built the Chaparral, mostly due to the 1/20 scale or cost of most kits.)
  6. 40 Ford Custom

    Thanks again everyone, your comments are very kind.
  7. 40 Ford Custom

    Thanks guys, I am glad I kept it silver too. I also have enough parts to build another one sometime. More of a Hot Rod style...
  8. Mako Shark Survivor Resto/Rescue

    Great history, like'n the restorations... I have the original kit I've been working off and on for some time, perhaps I should start a build thread for it!

    Great fit and finish, good looking model. What paint did you use on the oil pan?

    Thanks for the comments all, here is a pic of the engine...
  12. 40 Ford Custom

    If you saw this one on the "Workbench" you'll know I started is about 3 1/2 weeks ago. I call it Slow Roll'n Low (You'll can look up the meaning of the phrase). Waylon Jennings is one of my favorite artists and I thought this build would make a quick shelf model and kind of break up the monotony. I started with parts from two Revell 40 Ford standards and some spare parts laying around. I plan was to use the Silver Leaf as a base for candy blue, but after seeing it on the body I decided to keep it. The manifold for the Blower was made by modifying a stock piece. And the belts were just adjusted to fit. Molotow Chrome was used for touch up and painting the smaller pieces. The tail lights are from a 63 Corvette...

    Pretty simple interior, Krylon grey with semi gloss clear and the dash is the same silver leaf as the body. Molotow chrome, BMF and black wash were used also. Instead of placing the newspaper decal, for a more realistic look, I cut it out and wrinkled it a bit then glued it inplace.
