    This looks very nice.

    Thanks for all the nice compliments, I have used a lot of the tips shared on this website.

    Thats a really cool idea, and even better execution!

    I ordered the wheels and tires from Historic Racing Miniatures.
  5. Essex Wire Cobra Finished

    If I were to do it again, I would cut the orange stripes off and paint the black on. The decal split in the back on the truck, and I couldn't get it to line up straight. Overall, though, I like the way it looks.

    I love that green one.

    Engine is just about done. I need to paint the transmission, and its ready to go in.
  8. 1970 Torino in yellow

    Thanks for the tips. I will strip it down and start over. I think the gray primer I used was too dark, so this will address both these issues.

    This is what I am going for, but with a brown interior.
  10. 1970 Torino in yellow

    I started on this Torino. I have had it for a year or two, and couldn't decide on a color. Its a cool kit because it comes with four different stripe colors. I saw a yellow one with the yellow and brown stripe, and thought that was a winner. I bought an airbrush and have used it twice now. I had some issues on this, however. If you look close at the photos, you can see that the paint seemed to run away from the edges. Any Idea why that happened? I used Testors enamel thinned with mineral spirits. Any tips are appreciated. Not sure if I am going to sand it and respray, or strip it all the way down and start over.

    Great looking build, I am starting to replicate our 1:1 68 convertible. Are those the seats that came in the kit? What kit did that auto shifter come from from?
