    Wow, that is nearly flawless. Great job! Those hubcaps are something else.
  2. Dino 246gt

    That's a nice-looking car. The yellow looks great. Nice work on the chrome trim, the engine detail and the interior.
  3. Mini Cooper

    Love the paint color and finish.
  4. 57 Chevy Nomad

    Looks really good. Nice detail.
  5. 68 Firebird 400

    Here is my finished Firebird 400 model (Revell kit). Body is Model Master metallic blue, and interior is Model Master light ivory. Enjoy! The workbench thread is below.

    The weathered look adds so much realism. Would love to see some tutorials on that. Nice job.

    Okay, so as you can see, I fixed the steering wheel that was upside down. And almost everything is done. Will just need to let the wheel decals dry. How do you like the redline tires?

    I successfully removed the steering column and got the wheel turned right side up.

    I'll have to see if I can fix the steering wheel, but it may be too late at this point.

    Thanks for all the recent comments. Have just gotten back into modeling after a few month's break. I should have closed up this thread with a link to the finished model. See below.

    The interior is finished. Will be working on the body next.

    Parchment upholstery

    I have been impressed with the amount of detail on the decals, including the hose labels, and I have had to use a jewelers loupe to place them.

    Thanks for the info. The decals were in the kit, and surprisingly they are in very good shape so far. This kit was given to me by a guy who kept it stored in his hot and humid garage for years, maybe decades.

    I'm continuing to work on this model. The engine is installed on the chassis. Will be working on interior next.
