Thanks Bill, I'm glad you like the paint. I find that encouraging. I sometimes feel a little twinge of guilt when I have to turn away and set a kit aside for a while. But I remind myself that it's just a hobby and if I'm not having fun with it or at least getting some form of satisfaction from it, then it's time to do something else for a while. David G.
Honestly, I'm not feeling very inspired to finish this one. It's become more of a grudge match at this point. I still may start another build just to get my head away from this one for a while... again. All that aside, it's time for another update.
Unfortunately, by the time I was able to get most of the scratches out of the roof I'd begun to burn through the paint on the right front corner.
Masking and a re-spray for the roof.
For all the trouble I've had with this one, I think I can be satisfied with the paint and polish results.
Sometimes good enough just has to be good enough.
As always, thanks for looking and feel free to comment. David G.
I built several of these back in the 70's. Like most other things during those times, they were cheap and plentiful. Although I think I did pretty well with them but my skills were limited by my age. Now that my age has increased greatly and my skills at least moderately, I'd like another crack at them. David G.
Thanks for the update. Every time I check in on this thread, I'm amazed by what I see. Looking at the texture of the dryer sheet you've used, it looks like it could also be used to simulate the interior surface of a fiberglass panel. Thanks for sharing that tip. David G.
