    I put the window panels back in but covered them with woodgrain for something different. Shot some wet look clear on the wood areas. It darkened the panels nicely! I'll soon be done!

    Tom, when I sprayed the second coat of orange, the paint wrinkled on the side window panels, so I knocked them out, sanded them down and re-primed them. I'll put them back in after I paint them.

    It's coming along Wood framing is hand-painted acrylic. Dark panels were printed from online and glued on.

    Scott, you might consider thin (1/64") plywood, cut into scale size 4'x8' sheets (~2x4") for exterior sheeting. Then paint it. It will look like painted plywood sheeting because.....it is! The 1/64" ply cuts easily with scissors or an old-fashioned paper cutter. 1/32" ply would work, too.

    I agree with the above posts. This is not an easy kit, but it builds up nice with careful work. Here's one I built a while ago.

    That's looking good! Very realistic construction. I was thinking you need more roof trusses, but I'm from Pennsylvania where we get lots of snow! What will the outside sheeting be? Balsa?

    Very cool! The paint and foil work must have taken a lot of time and effort! It looks good!

  12. Sixties Sam added a post in a topic How did you get started in model building?   

    I started building model cars when I was 9 yrs. old in 1958 when AMT came out with their customizing kits, and I remember having a few model planes before that. I got hooked on the car models and built about 250 of them through my teen and college years. Got married and got into R/C planes in 1971, and gave away most of the model cars to a nephew and some local kids. I didn't build a model car for over 30 years after that. Then in 2003, I picked up a Revell 32 Ford three-window coupe model on a whim and built it. I discovered how much better the new kits were, and began building again. I'm still at it at 67 years old!
