  1. Nice work! It is apparent a lot of thought went into this build and it paid off in spades! From the side it looks sort of like my HHR!
  2. 1968 Volkswagen Beetle

    Great looking Bug. Don't care how you build them Bugs are just cool! The only other things I see that could add more realism are the tin work would have been semigloss black (more like flat black buffed out a bit), the muffler would have been just rust brown or flat gray with rust(new were flat gray) and the heater boxes were always rust brown.(new they were flat gray) I wish they would have had the option of the bumper guards though in the kit.
  3. Need Hood for Revell 62 Plymouth Fury

    Have one I picked up in a trade several years ago thinking it might use the same hood as the Johan kit. Yes, I was wrong! I could use taillights too but being it is a glue bomb it may wind up a circle track car or a drag car.
  4. Favorite Car

    I owned one of these back in 1983 and I am still kicking myself for selling it!
  5. 55 Chevy Belair Convertible

    I actually gave it a thought but then decided I would play it safe!
  6. 57 Chrysler 300C

    I was looking into what I could use that would be closer but couldn't find anything that looked like the anodized like color. So went with what I had.
  7. 57 Chrysler 300C

    Just good old Testors Bottle paint. 1144 Gold over testors flat black. Shook the bottle for about 20 minutes with the help of two grandkids!
  8. 55 Chevy Belair Convertible

    Had a friend in Wisconsin that had a 64 Impala SS in maroon. Looked great!
  9. 55 Chevy Belair Convertible

    Yes the Honduras Red is a solid color. I spayed it to check. It is the color I used on "Isaacs" 57 Chevy.
  10. 55 Chevy Belair Convertible

    Steve, I could be wrong on the red. It is a metallic paint that I used. Evidentally must have used it all as I have no others in the cabinet. It may have been Burgandy Red Metallic.
  11. 55 Chevy Belair Convertible

    Steve, the tires are the kit tires using the Firestone decals that came on the sheet. The red is Model Master Burgundy Red Metallic and the White is Testors One Coat 1833 White Lightning it is a pearl white. Both shot over white primer.
  12. Ford 1953

    Nice clean stock build!
  13. 55 Chevy Belair Convertible

    This was a "Honey Do" as my wife loves 55 Chevys! Still have a hardtop to do for her too! Was a fun kit to build!
  14. 57 Chrysler 300C

    Painting black is my least favorite but this one turned out pretty good for Rustoleum!
  15. GUMBY!!! They have GUMBY!!! Oh man I wish I could be there! Even my grandkids love Gumby!
