    Thank you, guys!

    I'm really happy with this project so far, because I have learned a lot of new stuff during it. Probably the most educating project for me so far when it's up to weathering. And I know she'll bring joy to my face every time I see her finished in the display case

    Truth be told, I'm so happy with the results I'm actually thinking of a miniature diorama or at least a display base for this birdie

    Hand-painted with a thick mix of Revell flat black + flat white + a few drops of flat brown:

    I think there aren't enough damadged (torn) places on the roof, so I'm slowly adding more. But this is where I stopped last night - less is more and it is easyer to add more than bugg myself because there are too many

    Next up considering the roof:
    - More torn places
    - Dirt
    - Dry-brush
    - Washes
    - Pigments
    - Oil paints
    - ...

    I am way happier with the result than I thought I would be It came out much better than I expected

    Finally got my guts together and tried the foil technique to simulate old, torn vinyl. Why so much hesitation? Because I was pretty much sure BMF would ripp off any paint off the model it touches... And boy was I right... Luckilly I was able to cover only the necessarry places of the model and the only paint that got torn off was on the windows frames - and I intended to paint them black anyway

    Roof in BMF:

    I love it! Considering the scale it looks even better. Great work on the springs and weathering. One sweet little model you sure can be proud of

    Well done!

    One of the best and most original automotive dioramas I've ever seen - and I've seen MANY! Great work! Congrats!

    Music, talk shows on the radio (I just love talk shows on different topics, such as politics, music, science, ...) and one thing I can't imagine doing anything without: Chocolate. Galore. All the time. Yes, please!

    Servo got some paint on it and a metal pin which will ensure better positioning on the firewall. I learned from my experience: Two painted areas are always a PITA to glue together for good, specially in a case like this: Small glueing area and a piece that could be touched or moved during the final assembly...

    Vents are mounted:

    The interior is almost done. Maybe some more bits n pieces, but this is more or less it

    Thank you, Bill
    The show goes on...
    Engine mounted on the chasis and by this the undercariage is more or less done:

    I changed my mind in the last moment - exhaust is not stock:

    I glued back the left headlamp. Crooked and dirty - jus the way I like it

    Front fog lights got crashed in the accident and now they're rusted

    Hood weathering continues:

    I painted the door handle and added the lock - painted and weathered pin head:
