  1. Thank you for the kind words! Now, on the another build ...
  2. Thank you. I think I need to dirty the windows up a bit, but I'm not sure how to do that without ruining the clear plastic. And yes, that Dollar Tree hairspray ... 😵😧
  3. Just wrapped up the Revell '68 Beetle. What a fun little kit to build! I'm sure there are concerns about accuracy for those who are true Beetle Aficionados, but for me, it was just a fun little kit. Besides, it's an old car, it might have parts from Beetles of different years on it! Might have been a little too aggressive with that low tire there on the driver's back. And a couple of in-progress shots: New to me techniques (or dumb luck; take your pick!): Based coated the body with Tamiya Red Brown, and various shades made by adding white, black, yellow, etc. to imply rust. Some bits of Tamiya Brown and Black Panel Wash along panel lines Testors Dull Cote More Tamiya Brown and Black Panel Line Wash Hairspray (I picked some gross stuff at the dollar store; which may or may not have been a mistake - boy did it stink!) Various light coats of Tamiya Yellow, lightened with white some Once the Yellow was dry, used an old brush (wet with water) to dab at the yellow in places where I thought rust would be most obvious. Testors Dull Cote Used a variety of oils (cheap, on clearance at the art store) to dab some earthy colors on the body and immediately wiped down with mineral spirits More wash in some areas Testors Dull Cote Touched up the "rust" in places And here we are ...
  4. You've heard of Buck Rogers, now meet Buick Roger! Beautiful work! I think it's one of the coolest interpretations of this kit I've seen in a long time.
  5. Wow! A right-hand-drive Cobra! That is awesome! Love your work, glad to see this thread pop up again
  6. Thanks! I'm close to wrapping up this Earnhardt kit. Hopefully.
  7. I'd certainly buy another one or two, even though I have a couple in the stash. My Dad had a 4.3 S10, the square body. He sold it around 250,000 miles because "it smokes a little bit ..." The guy who bought drove it for many years after that. I've seen a variety of engine swaps in these over the years. Anyway, it's a fun little kit and I hope it comes back.
  8. Wow! I never knew this kit could be built so nicely.
  9. Man, that's one ugly car! I'll need this kit.
  10. I wish it would be reissued - as stated, it is a really great kit.
