    Thanks Dan, I hope it turns out in the end. Cheers dude. Thanks David. Dedication is a fine line from obsession, Picture:1 After taking a closer look at the pictures I noticed the front left side area lip/ridge was way too far out of alignment in comparison to the right side. This had to be fixed. Picutre:2 The replaced part, much better. I also started shaping and filling the right side lip/ridge.
  3. Looking good. Tamiya silver leaf always looks so nice. How's this paint, any drying issues?
  4. It is and has been rather humid in your area hasn't it? Current humidity is really high, according to a weather app. Humidity plays havoc on paint in many ways as we have all learned. Edit: Never mind, I didn't notice the date you posted this. Has it finally dried? Looks good so far, hope it dries out for ya.
  5. This is a really interesting project, I like your approach. Good luck.
  6. Love the garage, I have always admired it. Looking forward to seeing how this colour works, good luck with the build.

    Looking good. I like the wheels.
  8. Really fantastic work, love it!
  9. Brilliant work. As stated by another, that fire wall is a work of art.
  10. Great looking decals for a nice build.
  11. Which ever way you start and what ever shell you start with this is going to be a great project to follow.

    Thank you. Thanks for the interest and comments. Thanks! You and I are on the same page then. I hope this continues to be eye appealing. I always hated the movie car too, it looked so WRONG and toy like and unfinished in my opinion.

    Thanks for the interest, and comments JC.
  14. An hour or so of cruising this thread I am caught up. Wow there are real nice builds in here going on. It's infectious to see all the resurrected builds going on. I have been fighting the urge to jump in with one of my stalls from 10yrs ago, but I'm going to stay focused on my current Batmobile project. I can see this thread being a staple and a catalyst for many stalled builders on here. Good call Snake on starting this group build project thread.

    Thanks Bob. I find it fascinating how a small change can make a big impact, good or bad. Thanks Carl, the trick now is to not get caught up in this too much and start going backwards. I have a few more mods then it should be ready to start the paint prep. After studying the pictures I can see the back side of the fins need the smaller sections lengthened. In their current state they look too short and stubby in relation to the new configuration.

    Dig these cars. Looking forward to following where you take this build.

    A quick update. I was successful in adding on the fender/body lip extensions. I ended up used 2.5mm triangle rod. Once the glue sets I can get to shaping, filling and fine tuning the look. Thanks for looking in. All comments welcomed.

    Thanks a ton Jim. Carving out of the fins is complete, probally will need some more finish sanding after the filller primer is sprayed on. I have also been considering adding a sharp lip/edge on the upper part of the entire body running out from the tapered wing edge. Although I am not convinced the effort is worth the reward. I have been trying to figure out the most efficient method of achieving this. So far everything I have though of leads to large amount of time filling and sanding styrene backing forms. In a final attempt at an idea I am going to try this triangle shaped rod, perhaps I can adapt one of these sizes to suit the need with minimal sanding/filling repeat many many times. All comments welcomed, good or bad, I like to hear what people think.
  19. Great looking build of a classic. Reminds me of my Grandfathers 32 Pickup, it was a very similar green.
  20. Beautiful model, fantastic foil and paint.
  21. This is really starting to shape up nicely. Keep going.
  22. Welcome back to the hobby. Great subject, and a good start on it too.
  23. If you can't find them or get them made let me know. I should be able to paint them on for you. I am considering coming out to this months meetin.
