  1. Thank you! I got the paint from FirescaleModeler. They really got the color right.😊
  2. Thank you!! Thanks!!😊 Thanks! That's one of the beauties of the kit: Tamiya made separate chrome pieces for the trims. Quite amazing engineering.
  3. This is the new Tamiya kit. A very fun build.
  4. Thank you! Thanks! For the wheels I used Steel color paint . It's from a local Brazilian brand Dryco. πŸ‘πŸ‘Thanks! Thanks! The white stripes are decals. Made painting quite simple.
  5. Maybe the last one of 2021.... Or not 😁. Great kit from Belkits. First one I built from this brand. Super complete and the build is fabulous.
  6. Those are veeeery nice wheels.πŸ‘πŸ‘
  7. It's Pepper Gray. The same I used on the Eleanor. It's Sherwin Williams car paint. The 2K is also SW. The 5:1 catalysed one. I sprayed it on with 40psi and no thinning and got this silky look.
  8. Thank you! πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ I also prefer the Bird. I'll build the Camaro next... See how it goes Thanks! They are Porsche 917 wheels. 3D printed. It's the first time I used 2k clear with no thinning at all. Really liked the finish.
  9. My rendition of a mean Firebird 😁 really enjoyed this one.
  10. Thanks! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚ I was afraid of overdoing it. Thank you. Yes, the tires came with the kit. These Beemax kits are great. I'm also enjoying Belkits kits. ThanksπŸ‘πŸ‘ πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚ πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™‚

  14. Great work! Very nice indeed! Feeling tempted to get one. What was the build like?
  15. Thank you😊😊 Those Tamiya decals... Still learning I know.. 😁😬😁😬😁... Maybe a bit too much on the mud. But Monte Carlo Rally is quite dirty. Never a clean car. Thanks! Great fun to do.
  16. Is the first picture how it came out the printer? Nice work making it so smooth.
  17. Thanks! Thank you πŸ‘ Glad you liked it. It's the first time I used black velvet for the backdrop. Thank you😊😊😊
  18. Thanks! πŸ‘πŸ™‚ Many, many days! Still got to get the hang on those Tamiya decals. Thank you!

  21. Hi! 1965 El Camino. Hope you like itπŸ™‚
  22. πŸ™‚πŸ™‚ Thank you! It's really hard to find a perfect kit; so I'm always happy when I find one that builds really nicely. The Fujimi one looks really nice. Thanks πŸ‘ And they other car kits too. πŸ™‚πŸ™‚ I really don't know. But build-wise, the transparent parts fit beautifully. And only go on after everything else is built.
