  1. Thanks Keith! I am hoping for the same result with mine after all the sanding and polishing I've done. It looks like where the plastic had joined itself after filling the mold and maybe not enough plastic was pushed into the mold. I don't know if that was the issue and I am not an expert on mold filling.
  2. Well, enough of the wetsanding and polishing. I used my hand to block the reflection of the background so I could show you the line on the roof. I think this is where the plastic joined after filling the mold. Now it's back into the paintbooth for another coat of paint that I hope will cover the line and the high spots where the paint was sanded and polished. I unmasked the bed and other than the white line along the top of the tailgate emblem, it came out good! Hopefully, a fine paintbrush and some Tamiya Light Gun Metal will take care of that white line. Other than seat belts, the interior is done. More to come...
  3. I painted the second color on the F-100 yesterday and then threw the cab and bed into the dehydrator for five hours.. I may have painted the roof a little too heavily to start with as there is a line down the center of the roof. The plastic may have crazed a bit, so wet sanding is in order here. More to come...
  4. This was an hour of masking the cab and the bed. I hope it was worth it! This was three mist coats and 1 wet coat of Tamiya TS-42 Light Gun Metal all in about 25 minutes. Into the dehydrator and when this is dry, I'll re-mask and shoot the Dupli-Color Forest Green Pearl. More to come...

    I finally got the Fairlane painted in two-tone Go-Mango and white. I need to do some cleanup here and there, but it's not bad. I haven't decided if the engine bay will be Go-Mango or white, so this is how it is sitting right now. Lots left to do on this one. And, I still have to foil it and clearcoat it, too! More to come...
  6. Thank you Tom! I have the seat belt buckles from Model Car Garage and I am using some black ribbon that I found here at the house.
  7. Thank you Mark! I'm in the midst of making seat belts and it is not an easy task. I may have to come up with some sort of jig to help me make them.
  8. A little more work done on the Sport Custom today. The dash and the steering wheel was painted, detailed, and decaled. The side panels were painted in Forest Green Pearl and Gunship Grey. I started assembly of the interior, but stopped so I can add the seat belts without any obstructions. More to come...

    Thank you Carl! Yes, I am adding Model Master Go-Mango to the roof and the bottom below the chrome molding.

    Thank you Guido!
  13. 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria

    Since I had my paintbooth up and running yesterday, I went and added two more coats of Tamiya TS-26 Pure White to the body and hood, then I tossed them both into the dehydrator for four hours at 105 degrees. Next up is some wet sanding to remove some trash that got into the paint along the way. More to come...
