  1. It was an '89 Merkur Scorpio. My Dad and I each had one. My car had a bad alignment, my Dad had transmission problems.
  2. Looks pretty good. I once did something like that in the mid 90's. I used the chrome side of the alum. foil that Nestles Crunch bars were wrapped in back then to make chrome on a model car. It worked pretty well.
  3. Well, finally here's some more progress. I had some issues preventing me from doing much model work over the past few months. I got a really nasty cold in late Nov. that lasted through into Jan. Then after that was over I did a little work. Then out of nowhere I had three weeks of insomnia and I'm finally over that. But just as I was getting over that a few weeks ago I caught another cold. But this cold was much milder and I was almost over it in a week. So I finally got back to working on the exhaust system, painting the heat staining, adding those tiny wire loops for the springs. Then I ordered the Top Studio springs. I found one vendor that had them. So I got them in a week. A bag of 20 so that will do a few bikes. I used eighth on this one. Plus it was quite challenging mounting the tunes pipes with the Scale Motorsports PE brackets. But I got them. The springs were the last thing installed just today and yesterday. So now here's a bunch of photos going aroinf the bike and some close up shots on the exhaust system. I hope you like it.

    Revell Jaguar

    Good looking build.
  5. Fantastic build. It almost looks like I'm looking at the 1:1 car.
  6. Looks really nice. I have one of those kits waiting to be built.
  7. I finally painted the front shock struts. Quite a process of masking and unmasking and hand painting too.
  8. Nice build. I remember those cars. Remember "Joe Isuzu"?

    Cool builds. Rust never sleeps.
  10. You're doing an awesome job on that crummy kit. I built one of those straight out of the box.
  11. Here's some fresh paint work on the fairings. This is straight from the airbrush. I try to paint as defect free as possible but there's always some contamination that has to be polished away. Otherwise this paint finish is so smooth that it doesn't need polishing. There is a little dust you can see in some of the photos too.
