    As long as you can. I did not wait long enough before I shot clear over it and it dried, cracked and left a crazed texture, not what i wanted, but looks interesting. If you can smell the paint, its still off gassing. I usually leave my car bodies at lest 3 days, the longer the better.

    Gtx6970. You are correct, and the model does with a decal, but it looks like a sticker, so I painted, however point taken.

    Do I presume you will be making your own decals, or are you getting the NASCAR decals from somewhere?
  4. Geordi08 added a post in a topic 1/16 Dukes Charger   

    Since we are talking about converting the 1/16 charger I thought I would as my question here. The MPC charger has the frame from the NASCAR kit that the suspension attaches to, so for your conversion that's good. However I want to change mine to a standard 69 or 70 charger right off the standard assembly line. Does anyone know of a replacement engine bay that allows me to remove the engine frame?

    Any ideas,

    Aston Martin DBS Quantum Silver
    Here is the last model i finished, Tamiya's DBS in Quantum Silver. The model goes together like most Tamiya models, the only issue is that there is a lot of masking to finish the paint underneath.

    The color is from Scalefinishes and it lays down wonderfully.
    Thanks for any comments.

    68 Charger Dark Green Metalic
    Here is a model I finished not long ago using Revel's 68 Charger. The model went together fine and I finished it with Scalefinishes OEM 661 Dark Green Metallic. I did find out on GraveyardCarz that Dodge painted the black area then masked off and covered over the green. However I did it backwards, so next time I guess I will paint in the correct order. The bright work is all all Alclad

    Thanks for any comments.

    I am just about ready to start on my kit, decided to go with Gialio Modena for a change, so looking forward to this one. I notice the clamps on the wires, which make are those?

    Very nice build and love the color. As someone mentioned, subtle is not the Aventador's style but its definitely different. For some reason i think Tie-Fighter on wheels. Is there a metallic flake in the paint or am I seeing things?

    Very nice model and cool color combo.

    If Tamiya are not on your voice mail asking you to do one for their flagship office, then they should be! If I were Ferrari, I would be also calling you up to do another one for them, and who knows, they may even create a CF version of the Enzo replacement seeing how good the small scale looks.

    I was going to nit pick about the dust, but someone bet me too it, so next time take the car to a better detailer . This model is that good, that when I first saw the image at the top of this page, I thought it was the real 1:1 then it dawned on me that it was the model. I thought your FXX was the best, but you did one better. You continually raise the bar for everyone, superb job.

    now go do one in red

    Thank you for the comments. I was thinking of replacing the bed with wood, similar to what Custom Mike has done in this thread, but i could not wait, so I finished it off with some Vallejo paints. I think i might do another one after i finish the 41 Chevy 3100 Truck but this time try my hands at some flames.

    Chevrolet 1950 Pick-up
    Here is the finished model of the AMT Chevrolet Pickup. I decided to do a two tone after I saw one similar on the road. All the bright work is Alclad II, mostly polished aluminum or duraluminum. The green is Testors Citrus Green Metallic and the Yellow is Testors GM Daytona Yellow covered with Testors One Coat Clear.

    Thanks for looking.

    1950 Chevy Pickup

    Just wanted to share some pictures on the 1950 Chevy Pickup from AMT.

    Most of the parts are done, just putting it together and some final touch up is needed. Not happy with the fit of some of the parts, as when you line up the differential, drive shaft and engine, the cab no longer sits where it is supposed to.

    I still have to mask of the bed and spray the rails. The glass still has to be added and I will pick out the lettering on the chevrolet emblems and on the tailgate.

    The paint is from rattle cans, Daytona Yellow and Citrus Yellow Metallic with Testors one coat clear coat lacquer over that. The metal work is Alclad Duralinium or Polished aluminum.

    Hopefully I can finish it this weekend and post final pictures.
    Thanks for looking.

  15. Geordi08 added a post in a topic Any aftermarket parts for 1/12 Enzo and 1/12 Shelby 500?   

    Hobby design has two kits for the Enzo. A brake disk kit (HD02-0192) and a PE set (HD02-0193), not sure if the brake disk is worth it, I will have to wait until someone else pulls the trigger and posts some pics. Some parts are the same as what comes in the box but others are new.
