  1. Oh man! LOVE that mock up of the rolling chassis! Wicked ride height, this really looking great. Looks like you are close to having your hood issue sorted out. Very nice work Anton! Cheers, Steve
  2. Hi Bob, it looks good. Honestly, it would definitely shine a little more with a polishing kit, (3600-12000 clothes, then Novus) but that’s not for everyone. Black is a tough colour, not very forgiving... that’s why I only have one black car in my display case. It will look really good if you leave it as is. Enjoying watching it come together. Cheers, Steve
  3. Awesome stuff as usual Roger. I like the idea of semi gloss silver. Tamiya’s TS 100 semi gloss gunmetal is a fantastic looking colour. I have used flat clear on Tamiya silver leaf which very nicely replicates cast aluminum. A recipe that Dennis Lacey very graciously shared with me. The semi gloss should look cool, as you said, if not hit with gloss clear. I need some of that dull red, it’s a perfect colour for red interiors. Should be an awesome colour combo. Cheers, Steve
  4. Hi Mark, Lots of Canucks here, some very talented ones! I’m over on the wet (er...West) coast. Cheers, Steve
  5. Hi Craig, stunning paint on those. Very nice builds, welcome to the forum sir. Steve
  6. Welcome from another west coaster Declan. Lots of great builds, and wonderful people here that are more than willing to share their knowledge and expertise. Cheers, Steve
  7. Hi all, time for a small update. I’ve been a bit busy, (and a bit lazy) so not a lot has happened. However, today my paint arrived!! I found a cheeky way to get paint delivered from U.S to Canada, sshhhhhhh, don’t tell anyone. I am inspired to get going again. There was a fair bit of sanding, filing, fitting of chassis and body. Have it almost sorted out. The body has given me fits. I will need to spend some time to get the twist in the body straightened out a bit. I shortened the firewall: The engine is cleaned up and primed, I just need to decide on colours now. I take plenum will almost for sure be body colour. I have already decided on which colour but for the sake of conversation... left spoon is Vedoro green over black, right spoon is Vedoro green over silver. First photo in sun In shade... and inside under a light... The colour looks more the same in photos, there is a fair difference in person. I would love some feedback on colour choice. Now that I have the body colour paint I will start playing with wheel/engine/interior colours. There will almost certainly be some gold or bronze. Hoping to gain a bit of momentum to get this build finished. As always, comments and input welcomed, and thanks for having a look. Cheers, Steve
  8. Hi Roger, I am a huge fan of the T’s and agree about the staggered size, and painted spokes. (See below) I’m going to go with the second set of wheels to be different. Still playing with some tire options, as I agree that the rears needed to be a pinch taller. I had been thinking grey or green for the interior but gold/champagne are definitely strong contenders for accents and interior now. Thanks for sharing your opinion, much appreciated indeed! Cheers, Steve
  9. Ver nice Phil !! I always learn something from your builds... As always, very well executed sir. Cheers, Steve
  10. Looks great Gareth, I have been thinking about trying the “paint over foil” technique. What did you use to remove the paint, a toothpick? As the others have said, the colour looks fabulous, nice work! Cheers, Steve
  11. Nice choice for the next build Bob. One of my all time favourite bodies, oh, and I like pro street. I will be watching sir. Cheers, Steve
  12. Very nice Jim. Excellent colour combo, love the shiny! cheers, Steve
  13. Well, as a GM guy, I would try to lean you to the Nova. Bahama blue with Tamiya lacquer for the clear? I have very limited knowledge or experience with acrylic paint, so not sure what if anything went wrong there for you. Your first two have turned out great, especially considering the long hiatus... Look forward to your next project. Cheers, Steve
  14. Hi Micah, this is truly great stuff. The car, yes, but what a gift sharing this time and this wonderful hobby with your daughter. My daughter used to sit beside me at my hobby desk, she loved looking thru all the paints etc. So I set up a craft table for her right beside my desk. We spent many hours together at our desks creating, some of my favourite memories. We only built one car together, a snap together Hummer in bright pink. She loved it, but that was the end of her model car building. I built her a pink Prius about 7 years ago which she loves, it’s in the “under glass” section somewhere. Your paint work is beautiful, keep up the nice work, your daughters colour choices are perfect!! Cheers, Steve
  15. Hi Michelle, as the others have said, your builds just keep getting better with each project. This looks great, nice colour combo, love the blue. You have been busy!! Cheers, Steve
