  1. Totally, even something simple with a back drop can add a ton to the visual. It's a great piece not to have some sort of base.
  2. I'm digging this David, nice work on the upgrades. Any plans for a dio?
  3. WOW, what a great looking model, really fantastic work on the rivets.

    Welcome back George, good to hear you are on the road to recovery.
  5. That is one well used patrol car. Nice work all round.
  6. Once paint design and the final colour is laid I like shoot a few coats of clear. Wait until the paint is fully cured. Once the paint is fully cured you can start the colour sanding and or polishing. Top coating with clear helps to avoid burning through the colour coat when wet sanding and or polishing. If I happen to burn through the clear top coat no harm done, I just shoot clear over the effected area.
  7. Looks great David, I really like the weathering on the wheels.
  8. Agreed. Real nice looking builds.
  9. Awesome work, that dash is killer.
  10. Great results Kurt, really fantastic looking weathering.
  11. Thank you Cliff. Thanks Carl.

    John, I have those parts. If your interested pm me.
  19. I started back on this last night. The wheels from the big rig kits were too big for the tire's, causing them to be stretched, plus the rears were too wide for the tire's. New ones had to be fashioned out of two sets of wheels. A combination of 1/20 and 1/24. next up is the repainted of the shell. I've decided to ditch the chrome. I'll be going with the burning ember look similar to how the Batmobile looked at one stage, expect I'll be painting this shell with intent and planning. Sorry for the split post, I have no idea how this happened.
  20. Thank you Peter. Thanks a ton Dan. I totally agree with you on the original subject, it's an abomination, at least the changes I have made make it more visually palatable. I'm excited to get started with the dio.
