Ive had some of this C1 stuff for a while but not really used it properly yet. It is a very simlar product to Kosutte Ginsan but is not as potent (ie harmful). Its basically like a graphite based very fine powder, as you can see by Arts spoon test like all chrome finishes it relies on a super smooth shiny basecoat. Base colour plays a big part in the overall finish,unlike with Alclad black is not really my preferred base its too dark a finish. I prefer to use a mid metallic blue or a grey as Art has used. Sorry I have no photos to show of the results, but it is a very good product, and can be handled pretty well and also recovered if a mistake does happen.
Beautiful!...both of them, very clean and the interior and foil work is very well done. I built one of these as a convertible a couple of years back, and really enjoyed it, despite its age the kit still builds up pretty nice. What wheels have you used is it the Revell 66 wheels ?, they look so much better then the kit stock ones.
I do this a lot, I build a model it looks as good as I can get it, I take some nice photos and then end up giving it away if one of my friends shows an interest in it. Its the building that keeps me entertained, once they are done ....what can you do with it (I dont have infinite cabinet storage unfortunately) So best to pass it on to someone who will treasure it .
Tommy I have got the air cleaner that comes in the 66 Buick Wildcat kit, its a resin peice which i copied and cast myself for my 63 Riviera project. If one of these are of any use you are welcome to one.
Adam that's another really nice build mate, and another loser car too! Lol. Actually the "J" platform car was also a Cavalier over here in the UK although it was known as a Vauxhall Cavalier mk2. Our version was even more bland than the US version !, although it was an extremely popular car in its day and was also available with a few pokey engines too such as the Sri 130. Great job on a very nice looking kit, another I'll have to look out for, ....... Wide track for 82 !
So what have they actually changed ? Considering it was offline for nearly a week and they themselves admitted they were upgrading the website, they have not even updated the relevant kit sections with new releases
Christian I may be completely wrong, but I do have the 66 Buick Wildcat kit in the stash, Im not sure if the optional custom wheels are the wires as used in the Riviera kit, Ill have a look later and get back to you, Im in the UK as well so no probs there.
