  1. Chisel style exacto blade. Yes, but need to be careful not to over do it or slip. Thinking maybe the bumpers blacked out. But still have grille, tail light trim and window trim all chrome. And now will I leave it as is or go gloss. Having tough time deciding on interior colour too.
  2. Excellent build Dale Yes agree with you ole mate, it is a great kit to build and in Lowrider style too. Good to see you still coming up with the killa paint work.
  3. If only we could all be as good as you Steve. People like you take the fun and enjoyment out of the hobby. Mr, I, me, mine. Get over yourself.
  4. Tim Boyd would be the one to ask. As he wrote an article in other mag many years ago about the history of 1/24-25 motorcycles included in model car kits.
  5. Excellent build Guy. Rear suspension set up turned out great and looks the part. Simple clean interior goes well with the paint. Paint job is killa, lots of hours of taping and patience there. Cant wait to see your next Lowrider build.
  6. Always enjoy watching and following a Franklin build.
  7. Wow so many outstanding and interesting builds, did know this topic existed. All just wips at the moment [
  8. Thanks, may be a bit ambitious to get it all smoothed out being black. But we will see how I go. Not bad for the first go round. No where near as many touch ups going to be needed, as I thought alot more were going to show up. Still a bit of work, but not laborious thankfully. Mainly a bit more block sanding and small amount of filling. Applied two medium coats of Mr Finishing Surfacer 1500 black.
  9. Filling in a set of lights like the inspiration. Prefer to use super glue and a bit of styrene. Slowly getting it filled in and smoothed.
  10. Got out the chisel blade and started removing the side trim. And after that used a few other things to help start smoothing it all out.
  11. Havent done a wip in this section of the forum before, so I will start of with a simple build. I love the Impala's not matter the year. Whilst searching for some other things came across this and thought yep thats what il do to one of the kits I have. Simple and clean. So with that as a base for some inspiration.... Grab the kit and some wheels and set it up to see where to go from here, umm lots sanding ahead. The wide whites only come on the Crossbars that im aware of, changed them over to a set of Chrome Reverse Will be a curbside build.
  12. Too many projects on the benches today/this weekend.
  13. This build should be in the diecast section.
  14. Another quality build from you mate, super low just the way we like them.

    Impressive post count for sure, what I find more impressive is the total of builds Jim has posted. Wow! well done Jim.
