    Nice job- beautiful wood tones. Which paint did you use on the bodywork?
  2. gman added a post in a topic 67 Corvette   

    What type of clear did you use?
  3. gman added a post in a topic Revell's "Hot Rod Hydro" - What's New and Different with this reissue?   

    Yes- thanks for the review and the shots of the built versions. I wouldn't normally purchase or build one of these, but after seeing your treatment of the subject I can really appreciate the kit.

    Yes, the tinted glass was in one of the MPC boxed releases.

    I had two kits purchased about a year apart in the 80's that looked identical on the packaging with the tinted glass and quality of the chrome job being the only difference under the shrink wrap. I made one built model out of the two kits as one had a few broken parts on the chrome tree and some puddled chrome over excess clear under the plating.

    Nice job, and excellent photography to bring all of that detail and superb model building into crystal clear focus (so we can appreciate it) .

    I built this kit back in the 80's, and all in all with some work it makes for a nice model.

    Be prepared to deal with some poor attachment points on chrome parts and be careful removing them from the sprue. With some extra detailing and attention to basics it will build nicely- wish I had one in my stash right now.

    Those pieces for an incomplete "traditional" front suspension where there from the 1st release in the late 80's. They weren't spelled out in the instructions back then, can't say if that has changed.

    The search function should bring up a few "built" threads.

    It is a nice kit, requires some careful sanding on the right rear "C" pillar to fix a minor molding issue but other than that is based on Revell's 49 Mercury custom (another great kit).

    Saw the Lambo in a local hobby shop yesterday- $1100 (Canadian)

    Sharp looking Fairlane- like the color combo and scheme.
  11. gman added a post in a topic Tangerine 65' Riviera   

    That is some beautiful paint work- like this build very much.

    Beautiful! Is that a PS spray (for polycarbonate)? If so, did you use regular primer?
  13. gman added a post in a topic 25 t x-stripper   

    That thing is a beast, strikes many "right" chords. I would hate to see that coming up fast in the rear view mirror .

    I like how you tied the AMT '37 Chevy dash in with modified 32 Ford interior panels for that custom interior look. Nicely done!

    I might take that a step further and call him the paint master too- beautiful finish.
