MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. I like your choice of Duplicolor medium garnet red. Gives it a more stylish look than most campers have. Keep up the good work!!
  2. Now all you need is a miniature figurine of Nicholas Cage wearing a black jacket!
  3. Sweet Mustang, I also am a fan of blue with white stripes. That, and red with white stripes are probably the most classic looking color combos for Mustangs. Your kit came out looking great! ?
  4. Looks great so far! I have built model kits molded in white, and one in black, but never one in red. It's interesting to see a kit molded in an actual color ?
  5. Well people, this build is complete. Because this kit has taken me so long to finish, I decided to give it a "bare-minimum" paint job - no clear coat. I also decided to skip the chrome window trim. I even skipped the turn signal decals because the real movie cars sometimes lack turn signals. Overall I could have put more effort into this build, but I'm just itching to start a new kit. So, there you have it folks! On to the next one.
  6. Thank you, I appreciate the consolation. Yeah it was looking really good and smooth. I believe I can give it the same quality of paint job (or better) as soon as the body is ready again.
  7. I will definitely try that, and you're right, I didn't think of using a sharpie for it. Thanks for the tips! Thank you! Well guys, here's the bad news. I was spraying the body using a Testors spray can with a spray gun attached, and the can got launched towards the car body which sent the body onto a tree - all because the spray gun lost grip with the spray can. And to add "insult to injury", the spray can nozzle fell off and is now lost in the woods somewhere. It was a brand new spray can too! Ugh... Good news is: I will NEVER give up on this build, or any model car for that matter. There is nothing that will stop me from completing this car! ? I think I will choose a different body color after I soak it in purple power. I also have a nickname for this car... but it's a surprise. ?
  8. Alrighty, here is more progress on the Charger. By the way, it won't be exactly like Dom's Charger - I will personalize it to my taste. The chassis is nearing completion. The engine is installed, as well as the steering assembly and the rear suspension. The interior is as complete as it should be for this car. I recently got my first set of magnifying goggles so I could put chrome on the 3 dots of the pistol grip shifter. I used my Molotow chrome pen for that. The body is getting prepared for primer. When I cut the hood off of the sprue tree, a slight amount of plastic came off. That's not allowed, I am a perfectionist! ? So, I used some putty and sanded it as smoothly as I could. I'd rather repair a broken hood than have no hood at all. The weather where I live has been awesome for the past 2 days, I should go get some painting done!! It's time to wrap this build up. Patience is key though...
  9. Nicely done! I like the combination of blue, white and black.
  10. I like it! I think it's awesome that your childhood vision inspired you to build a model car with similar attributes. Orange and black is the best looking color combo for Mopar muscle cars in my opinion.
  11. Fantastic job sir!! 1970 has always been my favorite year for the Challenger. Those cars are extremely valuable today.
  12. Note: this is my first mobile post. Here's hoping it goes as planned! Okay, the engine is done. I just wish there was an easy way to paint the 3 circles of the blower. Below are things that I finished building but don't know their purpose. I hate to say it, but I basically know next to nothing involving how cars work under the hood. That might be my last post for a few months, since it's currently winter where I live. Unless I get a spray paint booth, in which case my progress rate will skyrocket, lol.
  13. Hello everyone! I picked up this kit at least 2 years ago and felt it was time to build it. This is the kit box... The pics below show where I'm currently at with the interior. I painted the main interior piece silver to make it seem like the floor was metal, lacking carpet. Because racecar. Also, this car will only have one seat. Because weight reduction. ? Lastly for this post, the dashboard. Not much to say here other than the instructions called for cutting out a non-waterslide decal and gluing it where the gauges would go. Not the most detailed method in my opinion, however I don't think I would have the fine hand skills to make it more detailed, given the size. So I'll live with it. Oh and speaking of living! I live my life one model car at a time. For those 100 parts or more, I'm happy. ?
  14. Nice! I love the color and the choice of wheels. ?
