    Me too, thanks. I may have to, the orange has a matt finish. Thanks for checking in dude. It's going to be a BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH shoot. πŸ˜ƒ
  2. Pat, did you scratch build the boat? Looks like it was a fun build.
  3. Super job on the interior, real nice looking build Craig.
  4. I'll be watching with interest. Good luck.

    First colour down. My limited experience with Fluorescent colours shows here. This stuff is super tranlucent and requires multiple layers to build up the right shade. It bleeds like a stuck pig and runs like a runaway train down hill. I'll have a few spots to wet sand before I mask the pin strips, oh well all part of the learning. The black might be down this week. Thanks for looking in.
  6. Great subject Dave, really looking forward to seeing this come together.
  7. Looking good, nice save on the steering wheel, and the CB really looks the part. I like your liquid masking/cutting trick. I use liquid mask all the time, except I trim out edges with ultra fine masking then use the liquid mask to fill in tough areas that would be next to impossible to use masking tape. I'll have to try your method, thanks for sharing.
  8. That looks great! It's begging to be in a dio.
  9. Great looking work, the paint looks real nice.
  10. Nice work and weathering Pat, can we see more pics of the boat.
  11. Love it! Some really great work went into this. Can't wait to see what you do next!
  12. Some real good progress. Keep it up.
  13. Great looking classic. Nice work on the interior, I like the little "I love Cuba" bumper decal. I really like that colour.
  14. Hats off to you guys who have kept your builds from sooo long ago. Cool looking car. I remember wanting those wheels for my car.

    You'd have had a melt down knowing what I've seen.πŸ˜” My grandfather owned a big wrecking yard, once a year a mobile crusher rolled in. I grew up hanging around/in that yard in the '70's and early ''80's. I dig the map graphics too. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘That's why I build. I only wish I had originally thought of this idea. Nothing gets me into building wacky out of the box stuff more then hearing it made someone smile and or laugh. I truly build for myself, but when it makes someone smile and laugh, that's even better.
  16. Really great work, I can only imagine the work involved for the cage alone. Well done.
  17. The low rider crowd is very excited to get there hands on this long awaited car. Best of luck moving forward with this project Paul.

    Thanks man. Well it is a halfas kit to begin with so you'll be good. Thanks Jonathan. I appreciate that Craig. This has been about a year on and off the bench, lol, I am super slow. Thanks Ray. One step closer to paint. I shot a few coats of filler primer, now to let it cure for a few days. So far so good, perhaps some white will go down Monday. Thanks for checking in on the progress guys.
  19. Great looking build of a great kit. I had one of those but traded it away, doh!
  20. Thanks for the response. I was hoping it was a clear. So basically a heavy flake like back in the 70's when painters pretty much laid down some clear, punched holes in a box full of flake and shook it over the clear. Then buried it with a ton of clear.
