  1. '65 Pontiac GTO Convertible in "Mayfair Maize"

    Thanks for your feedbacks, appreciated! You‘re welcome! I recommend it. There may be similar products available out there, but this is the first one I found that worked this well for me.
  2. '65 Pontiac GTO Convertible in "Mayfair Maize"

    Thanks guys! The UV glue is a product from a German company called Fischer. They are specialized in fastening technology. This type of UV glue is the first one I came across that satisfied me both in terms of transparency and hardness. After painting the kit's "chrome headlights" with the usual mix of tamiya clear and the tiniest amount of white in the first step, I simply applied one small drop of the glue and "dried" it with the small UV lamp that comes with the glue. Below find two images, showing the difference between before (lower bezel) and after (upper bezel) the application of the UV glue. One image was made using flashlight, the other one without. IMHO it's a good result coming from little work. And, what's more, it's eliminating that "dead eyes" look that comes from the "chrome headlights".
  3. Dukes of Hazzard Diorama

    Cool idea and very well done!
  4. '65 Pontiac GTO Convertible in "Mayfair Maize"

    Thanks Chris, I'm happy you like it too.
  5. Classic Range Rover

    Nicely done. I like the subtile weathering!
  6. '65 Pontiac GTO Convertible in "Mayfair Maize"

    Thanks folks for your kind words, much appreciated!
  7. AMT-1124 Supernatural Impala

    I hear you! I just watched one of my all-time favorite series again, Breaking Bad, and I wonder, how come no-one ever had the guts to do a Pontiac Aztek...
  8. Foose '67 Dodge Coronet

    I have this kit too but will build it plain "stock" one day. No Foose or custom business of any kind. I'm looking forward though to those modifications you mentioned, it'll be interesting too watch, so count me in!

    I agree, this is looking very good. I will follow your WIP. If I may add one small comment, I think the exhaust pipes have to more straight, on those photos they look like they are pointed to the lower part of the rear wing in a somewhat diagonal angle. On the real car, hot exhaust air may never reach the CF parts, that would not be good...
  10. '65 Pontiac GTO Convertible in "Mayfair Maize"

    Thanks Tom! Thanks! I will check on the taillights, they appeared to be strangely small/ thin to properly fit in there. Thanks Ludwig, also for your "support" in this matter.
  11. Hi folks, I just finished this goat... It's that old AMT kit, built rather out of the box, except for some small additions: I scratch-built the twin exhausts for both sides, using Evergreen tubes. Seat belts have been made from adhesive medical tape, which has been painted black with a pen. Belt buckles are PE aftermarket parts. Sun visors have been scratch-built from Evergreen card. Some flocking has been used to create a black "carpet" look on the floor. Gauges decals are from the parts bin, as are the mirrors. The glass effect on the headlights has been archieved with the aid of a very nice UV glue. The wheels are from the '66 Chevy Nova kit, the redlines were taken from an AMT aftermarket set. The thin silver pin stripe has been taken from a decal sheet. It's application was rather nerve-wracking and, at times, made me breath harder than Hector Salamanca... Anyways, I hope you like it:
  12. This is what I bought some time ago. Pick the silver color, it doesn't look too bad: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Wholesale-10M-Rubber-Chinese-Knot-Satin-Macrame-Beading-Jewelry-Rattail-Cords/322528417816?hash=item4b18311818:m:mj3-5ibtqB4K_mqd3M9DtcA
  13. I think Ford Lime Gold would be quite a good match. And it's available from model color specialists such as Gravity Colors, which means that the metallic flakes should be in scale - unlike automotive sprays which are made for 1:1. And I would use something darker than white as a primer, grey probably, to tone it down a bit.
  14. '66 Mercury

    Very nice. I also like the interior. Surprised you didn't find the mags in the box, they should be in there (at least for the Round2 release)...?
  15. Opel Calibra DTM

    Well done. There is a much better Tamiya kit, but that's the '94 DTM model. If you want a kit of the '95 model, no way around the ones from UT model. Aftermarket decals for several liveries can be purchased from several manufacturers, if required.
