Hi Tim, yes I notice my previous uploaded pics don´t work. Photobucket want me to upgrade my account to get "unlimited 3rd party hosting"...and they expect me to pay $399 for that.......haha . Instead I will re-upload all pics in this thread from page one soon. If some one want to chek out my old stuff on Photo bucket I´ll put the link below http://s172.photobucket.com/user/RickHedlund/library/?sort=3&page=0
It´s time for a small but nice update I finaly got the gold base on the body. I used a IWATA HP-BH1 PLUS airbrush for the basecoat/clearcoat...everything went well this time, The clear coat (Sikkens Auto Clear 2K) was spayed in 4 thinn coats and the results turned out just great
Thanks Brad. The acorn nut was THE perfect tool to get the right shape. I wraped a small plastic bag aruond metal surface so it would not stuck in the bondo. / Rick About the primer failure, All I can say it was a mix of human error and murphys law. / Rick
Thanks for all comments guys, I´m glad you like this build. Some progress on this one. The second primer layer went terrible, so I spent many hours to get the surface back on track again. Once the body was ok I decided to make a neat hinge for the trunk. I made the hinge from brass rod and tubing.
Hi guys. Trying to get into modeling again after some years of restoring my house. i´m just charing some pics whats in progress so far on this 32 Ford, and I hope I got some time to finish this project soon. enjoy, /Rick
Thanks for all comments. I have not modeling for about 2-3 years now...so I hope the inspiration will last for a while. @ Håkan : I´m almost done,..almost just the kitchen and dinner room left. Soon I´m gonna move my model workshop to another room...a more permanet installation.
