    Thanks for all of the comments, and yes I was inspired by this look, also the many Subaru WRX's which carry the same theme.

  7. 1969 Dodge Charger / MPC

    Hi all, here's another model I recently completed. Started in 2014, I lost motivation due to the quality of the plastic. This General Lee MPC kit was really poorly molded, even with quite a bit of bodywork there's still alot of defects that show through. I eventually decided to just paint it as is and at least get it off of the desk, which is why some areas are not perfect. I de-chromed everything on the chrome tree, and redid those parts with Alclad. The wheels I sprayed a Zero Paints gold and left them in a matte finish. The body is painted Zero Paints Light Blue Metallic with Tamiya Clear, and the interior the same Zero Paints Light Blue Metallic over black, matte finish. I chose not to do the rear panel black for something different, the rest is all stock. The most fun for me was the photoshoot and trying out new lighting techniques, it's there where the car really shines. Cheers!

  9. 1932 Ford Bonneville Coupe / Revell

    Thanks everyone for the comments! Yes multiple light coats did the trick, thanks!
  10. Hi all, it's been a long time since I posted a finished build here on the forum, but finally I found the time to upload some images. The Bonneville Coupe as I call it is basically a box stock 1932 Ford 3-Window Coupe without the fenders. Modifications are the wheel and tire combo, and the straight pipe headers. The paint is Testors Green Metal Flake(1630) from a can, no clear overtop. For more updates on my builds, please follow me on Instagram @scaled_models as I update there regularly. Cheers!

    The setup is very simple, the model is sitting on a large piece of black glossy paper, with a matte black paper as a backdrop. I have an LED bicycle headlight which I basically just hold in my hand and try to find different lighting positions as I snap pics, keeping the room lights off. The camera is a Nikon D5500 with an 18-140mm zoom lens on a tripod and I use a remote for the camera to trigger the shutter. I will post a picture of my setup when I get a chance.

    Thanks, and yes I left the roof removable, I will take some more pictures soon with the top off to show the interior.

    Thanks for the comment. The paint job was actually inspired by the Kia Provo Concept from a couple of years ago:

    Hi all! It's been quite a while since I posted any progress on any of my models. I recently set up a new model desk and finally finished up my Dodge Challenger, so here are some studio pictures of the finished build. Enjoy!
