  1. 58 Chevy.... with Audi Power ! !

    This is tight, what an insane concept. I think the skirts are too sharp. The rest of the body has more gentler edges in general. Are the skirts going to be flush with the body or over? what is the cage made of? awesome build ill be watching.

    Update: I've been away from the bench for a while here's an update of what I've done so far. I used this stuff for the pearl top. No Bueno, doesn't stick very well even with acrylic primer Results Here is some detail work I did on the bottom

    Update: more body work (pearl white roof). The kit came with red pin stripes, wasn't having it, so I flipped the decal over for a white pin stripe. worked well. In the interior, I masked and sprayed the seats and doors, then dulcoated in order to give it a more accurate finish,without having to try to match the exterior. Also flocked the carpet using flat black as an adhesive. Next is the clearcoat, can't wait to get rid of the orange peel.

    i was thinking pearl white actually. this kit looks pretty solid but there are some significant flashing issues so my guess is that i will have to wrestle this kit together.

    Started on a Cuda, but was immediately disappointed with the model quality, so I shelved that for this model. Decided to go with a metallic grape,with a white roof. Not breaking the creative meter, but my apprenticeship must continue before I start modding builds. I imagine I'll be heavy modding whenever I get a 3d printer. I finally found an affordable printer capable of 1/24 scale.

    Final update: all dirtied up. Let me know what I did wrong.
  7. 41 BEER Wagon?

    Yeah, the stock it was turned from is choppy at best I'd likely have to use wood filler and sand it. I'll stick with ye Olde time natural keg.
  8. 41 BEER Wagon?

    Update: some interior details and some dirt weathering
  9. 41 BEER Wagon?

    I think the wood does too. Ill go with that then.

    Update: some chrome embelishments
  11. 41 BEER Wagon?

    Update: I designed a beer logo, then became abundantly clear of the limitations of my printer, and had to scale back the detail. I just picked these up at hobby town to see how they work. Here's me testing out the look with a reject print One challenge I had was to find a fixative to seal the ink that wouldn't dissolve under my clear coat. This seems to wotk Here they are all cleared. I learned a valuable lesson here, I didn't clean the aluminum out of my airbrush well, so I have aluminum flakes in the clear which bummed me out. More with the mocked body and wood. I found these barrels on ebay at 1:24 scale. They offer them in wood and aluminum, I bought the aluminum but was somewhat unhappy with the finish quality on what's supposed to be a smooth keg. What do you guys prefer? Still need to sand and polish the clear to remove orange peel and decal wave.

    Updated chassis I have more work to do

    Its actually stickier than I expected. I saw that Tamyia had similar weathering pigment, although im sure it is made specifically for this. But for a dollar its worth a shot. The redish color matches rust pretty well.

    UPDATE: I painted and sealed the black paint with matte clear to keep from scratches. I also shot the copper sides. I'm not going with a standard ratio between colors, I'm looking for a less flashy industrial scheme. Somewhat understated flash of color. I did my best to keep the surface as smooth as possible. I will be designing a logo for the door, my guess is this and the clear over the bronze will be one of the last things I do before assembly. Working on the engine is pretty easy with this truck. Very simple and streamline. I had to bore out the horn as it didn't have a hole. I did some minor weathering, I plan on using some dollar tree eye shadow to add dirt and more surface weather. For the distributor I used an aluminum cylinder filled with sculpey. I created holes for the wires as spark plug mounts are difficult to work with. I then used a heat gun to cure the clay which hardens the holes. I thin just dipped the wires in superglue and stuck them in the holes to harden. I then painted the boots and wired it into the engine and painted the boots there. The rest of this was a stock build for now. I intend on doing more scratch engine detail once the engine is mounted.

    This looks cool, wonder if it would work to paint it on somehow.
