  1. got some more done still got to decide on paint ,wanted to still use the decals that came with kit ,but to be real honest ,im a little bit intimidated by these decals cause they go around the front and rear in one piece (this is the MAT & Debbie Hays thunderbird) Plus i didnt want to paint it pink,lord knows i have enough pink cars in cabinet now thanks to my grand-daughters ,but this is where she sits now
  2. Pro stock thunder bird

    started to pluck-a-way at this one not much done still got lots to do on it interior,did cut the head rest away and added pins ,think looks better than just a blob of plastic like original one piece

  4. another mopar

    Still got a lot to do ,sorry about the dust ,i just cleaned out the booth,funny how camera picks out the really bad things,just your basic craftstore white,i did buy the tamiya panel accent stuff,bought black and grey and used grey ,must say i like it alot better than trying to mix up my own,just too lazy i guess

  6. Finally calling done,SORRY nothing exciting to look at, but overall really enjoyed this kit was really nice,went together very well may have to visit Ollies and get a couple more or at least one

  8. T/A Challenger

    Thanks everyone
  9. Yes that is how it sits done nothing to suspension
  10. not much to look at ,sorry but here it is still undecided about the color want to keep it simple, the cab inside will be two tone , dark brown ,and a light tan,didnt think i would like this kit but its kinda growing on me ,surprised the engine was that detailed.

    Boy here is an old one i did years ago,, was scheduled to go into the round file cabinet ,the decals on this thing wrinkled up big time ,got frustrated and finished it put back in box where it stayed for long time . tech question for you camera guys,any idea why im getting color shift when i open raw files in adobe to do any adjustments or do none at all, and when it go to editor mode it changes drastically ,,,,,,strange thing is it is ONLY doing when i photograph the models,can take pictures of anything else and there is no color shift

    Hey Steve ,,,no harm done,,,i will admit im one to build pretty much box stock MOST of time with out research ,and most of time I build with no specific goal lots of times I will be working on one part of model then change my BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH mind about something else on model and total go in different direction with it . AND to be honest I really didn't have ANY intentions on posting ANY of my finished builds because of the caliber of builders on here,BUT I love Photography and thought give it a try,so im getting just as much enjoyment trying to photograph the models Bill

    Ok about the side mouldings I did not do any research but after the fact I did look at the REAL CARS I see what you mean (it is higher up on fender on model)so I checked ALL the models and they are all the SAME way as this model, I did buy them all at Ollies I bought 5 of them,i wounder if that's why they were so cheap because it was a defect ????? and the more experience modelers may have been able to fix it im not going to try I don't have the patients to try to modify models since they are expensive to begin with . so I got 4 more to continue on with later on ,,all in all this kit was fun and went together with NO fitment issues anywhere,,,just wish It came with the dog dish caps ,,oh well looks like I will be casting me some more dog dishes,,,really liked that look

    Well here is a BIG screw up ,,,,tryed my first darkening the door panels lines and trunk,,sorry guys any suggestions ??? was going to start over but said heck with it ,,,will just go ALL the way in back of cabinet,,also for a first ,,tryed that double faced tape someone mentioned on here for windshield works great also used it for the hood scoop also front bumber, man this stuff is STICKY ,,,SO THANKS for whom ever suggested it
  15. Hey snake I see want to go into the craft paint ,,check my post I don't know how to link it ,but I have picture of the exact stuff I use,,it is a little expensive but the stuff goes a long way, I have tried the plain water for thinner but ended in a disaster, I love that cheap stuff I use it on everything including bodies,for me it was so nice to get away from all the smelly stuff,,and since its water based I use a hair dryer to dry the part and don't have to wait,,think the key is spraying LIGHT coats until coverage is what you looking for,,alot of people say whats the purpose if it takes longer to spray why not just use our regular model paints with less coats, thanks to that fact it don't stink I really enjoy modeling again,not to mention EASY cleanup,,,,,,It just takes patients and learning something new and a procedure that works for you.anyway sorry for long post hope you get the hang of it Bill
