  1. Thanks for all the encouragement, everyone. Its the MPC kit.
  2. Spent a lot of time just trimming and sanding to make the battery fit. Also added some posts to the rear to keep the chassis straight in the body.
  3. Had fun with the carb last night. Added a few details that won't be seen.
  4. Made the posts longer on the spoiler, just need to clean up the edges now.
  5. This turned out amazing. I love the faded paint, and the wheels and tires.
  6. This is a cool project, I like the idea. I have this kit as well, and the windshield frame is warped. I may do the same thing. Looks great so far!
  7. This is a very cool project. Those wheels turned out really nice!
  8. Im mostly happy with the chrome on the cage, but I think it got duller when I sprayed on the clear. Not sure if I why that is. Might have put it on to heavy?
  9. I am building it as close to the real car as possible. I figured Drag racing would be the closest section for a Pro street car.
  10. Thats what I am thinking, too.
  11. I've had this for a few years, and finally got going on it. I really like these Hot Rod series of kits from Revell. Lots of good kits in the series, and several re-boxed older kits, but good subject matter on most of them. This kit is very well detailed, and I am enjoying the build so far. I'm going to use Alclad chrome on the roll cage, and that presents a challenge with the floor pan. You can see in the last picture that the lower part of the cage is molded into the floor. My intension was to paint the floor red for the carpet, then mask the red, so I can paint the black and then chrome on the cage, then decide whether to use flocking or embossing powder last. Not sure if that's the best strategy or not. We will see how it goes.
  12. I love the paint on this truck, beautiful job! Who makes that color?
  13. I just saw this on the side of a box. Looks like they made a Sedan Delivery at one point.
  14. Tom, and Snake, thanks for the tips. Ill pick up some poster board, and give that a shot.
  15. Thanks for the tip, I'll try using clear on the next chrome headlight car. There weren't any other parts to make it a panel, but it looks like one could convert it pretty easily with styrene. Not sure it Revell ever made one or not.
