Oh Boy it looks like Moebius has my money again... That kit is absolutely a Must Have. Not sure though if I will manage with one of them or do I have to buy more to build a couple of different cars with different decals.
Well I was kind of debating if I should buy this kit or not, as I have lots of these Lindberg '64 Dodges and Plymouths already. The subject is very interesting though and with those new parts included, I'm pretty sure I'll end up buying me one of these kits. Glad to see it's finally coming out.
Well I tried to find another can of that clear for chassis and firewall, but it looks like I couldn't find it anywhere no more, all shops were carrying other brand paints that I normally use. So as a solution I decided to try spraying different brand clear over the paint and I'm glad the paint didn't react with the clear. The paint job on these parts is not perfect, but I think it'll do in the chassis and engine bay.
Here is the bench seat sanded and ready for another coat of primer. After that I tried to paint it, but looks like that old spray can didn't want to spray anything out from it anymore. The fun thing is, it worked fine last weekend when I tested it. Well, I gotta get me a new one next weekend.
Here are front inner fenders and radiator wall. I had to add some filler to smooth out ejector pin marks from them and now I sanded everything smooth and shot some primer on the parts.
I also installed the generator on place. It wasn't very easy to install with that quite fiddly belt, but I got everything on place in one piece anyway.
Here's a small update for this project. Yesterday my painting didn't go that well, I shot some primer to the bench seat after smoothing out filler I had applied on it. It turned out pretty good, but unfortunately I dropped it to the floor by accident. Now it requires a light wetsanding and another coat of primer before it can be painted. I also tried to shoot some clear to chassis and firewall, but looks like my spray can had lost its pressures and none of the clear came out... I gotta go to get me another one of those cans and try again... Anyway today I installed carburetors on place. I also built fuel lines to the engine. Fuel filter is somekind of electric component and the fuel lines are regular metal wire that was attahed to the electric component already when I bought it.
Thanks guys, I appreciate your kind words! Grant: Unfortunately I have no updates yet as right now I have time to build only on weekends. I'm planning to shoot some clear over the body next weekend though so I should have an update then. At the same time I can clear coat the dashboard so I can continue the progress with the interior as well.
Turned out fantastic. That fuel injection setup is something I have never seen before, but you did a great job replicating it in scale. Excellent looking paint job and flawless detailing in the engine and interior as always. You for sure know how to build these tube frame cars right.
Very nice job on this Pro Stock Ford! I have the same kit in my stash waiting to be built, but I'm missing the decals for it... Anyway you did a great job on this. The paint and decal work looks really good to me even though you had some problems, and sharp details in the engine bay look good too. Nice work.
It's great to see this one done, following the WIP thread was a lot of fun and I learned a lot from that thread. Now it's bookmarked for future reference as I have a couple of '59 Impalas to be done too. When looking at this finished product, I can't think of a word that describes this one better than "Perfect". Everything seems to be just right and the biggest issues in this kit are fixed very nicely. Personally I see nothing wrong with the kit's roof, but I have a bad eye for accurate body shapes, but great job fixing the engine placement as it's way too back originally and nice to see that the chassis is not visible under the body too. Those are probably the two things that bother me the most in these kits anyway but you fixed them nicely! Nice work overall, with all side windows down you added that little piece of chrome trim where that rear side window rolls up, I've never seen anyone doing that before even though it is there on real car. The trunk looks just like real '59 or '60 Impala trunk does...Fantastic. Overall very nice and clean work, everything seems to be just right including the paint job, BMF and detailing all over. Those hubcaps are looking very fine too. Nice job detail painting them. (Sorry for such a long story...This model just made me drool over my keyboard very hard.)
Looks fantastic as your builds always do! One of the best Monogram Cadillacs I've seen. It's great to see this one with the top up, I think it looks much better that way than with top down. I like that color choice and paint job is really smooth too, plus that your work is very nice and clean overall as always. Great job.
That looks great! Very nice and clean work overall, everything seems to be just right. Nice color choice and those wheels and tires look spot on with rest of the car too. Great job detailing the grill and engine bay, both look very realistic. Nice work.
This made my jaw hit the floor, very beautiful Chevy Custom! Body shapes are excellent and especially that chopped top is just perfect. Very tasty Custom with great color choice and I like that engine too. Very smooth looking Chevy.
Fantastic looking Nova! I really like how these look with body color steel wheels and Dog Dish hubcaps. You have done an amazing job with this, very nice and clean build with a fantastic paint job that's smooth as glass. Excellent work.
Another winner from your bench for sure. That weathering is as perfect as it gets and I really like how that Hemi fits in there. Using that Chrysler's original air cleaner on this one is a great idea too, and I like your details a lot. Especially that half-full Coca Cola bottle is a great idea. Fantastic work.
WOW! I thought those were pictures of your 1:1 inspiration but then I realized that it has to be a model. Very nice work with it overall. That black paint job is flawless and sharp details like that Lincoln text on the hood really make it stand out. Plus that it's nice to see a real rare kit like this built this well. Nice job.
Today when I was sitting on co-driver's seat in my friend's car, I saw this Pontiac Convertible. It has 540 Cid Big Block and it runs high 10 second ETs on 1/4 Mile so it's pretty good considering that it's definitely not a lightweight car. I was even able to take a picture through the car window while we drove past it.
