    Happy Easter everyone!
  2. Hawk312 added a post in a topic Airbrush or spray can?   

    Except for a brief period of a few months back in the 90`s, all of my builds were finished with spray cans. All of the finishes on everything I have ever posted here were done with spray cans.

    That is unbelievable! I can`t imagine the amount of work that took to revert back to a `69. Where did the tires come from?

    Thanks!
    I can try to pull my thoughts together on my process and write something up in the how-to forum. You can also see my process along with pictures in MCM issue 150, the "Big Scale Bueaty" issue if you can get a hold of it. All of my paint jobs are from rattle cans too.  
    Again, thanks!

    Nice work! It looks as though you even drilled out the radio/heater details to install the gauges? 
    I know what you mean about finding reference photos. When I was building the L-88`s, it was a real struggle. The Barrett Jackson car wasn`t too bad with all the publicity it got, but the black ones were another story.

    Oh wow!! I can`t wait to see this! I will be watching for sure!
  7. Hawk312 added a post in a topic Rattle Cans - who still uses them?   

    I`ve been using rattle cans exclusively for over 20 years now and am getting decent results. I have no plans at this point to go to an airbrush.

    Excellent work on both! 
     
    Where did the wheels come from for the `vette?

    Thanks guys!

    Thanks everyone!
     
    Harry, the subject we discussed a while back is still in progress. I haven`t given up. Hopefully for Christmas next year?
     
    Thanks! The first one is an ultra rare L-88. Since they didn`t have radios (did any of you guys notice the modified dash?) there was no need for a shield.

    2015 for Hawk312, only 2 Corvettes.
    Well, the year started off ambitious for me at least, until life got in the way again. I have a very big project in the works I was hoping to share with you guys this year, but I guess it will have to be next year.
    So the L-88 car, which was meant to replicate the Barrent Jackson car, and another tri-power `67 Corvette are my only completions this year. Both are 1/12 scale. These are the first two models on which I have used my own built and cast `67 style rallye wheels.

    I`ll be watching this thread. I agree with you on the proportions. Alot of weirdness with the kit engine. I was debating back-dating this kit to a `68 or `69 if I ever get time to build again.
    If you have need during your build, I have an assembled one of these if you want me to snap some pics from different angles.
