    Should match the BMW nicely

    Try covering the raised edges with masking tape to avoid sanding these areas - the paint here can be thin, hence it is easy to sand through to the primer.

    This is finished now and appears in 'Under Glass'.

    Revell '29 Model A Custom Roadster
    I recently saw a restored '60's custom at a local car show and it inspired me to build something similar based on the Revell '29 roadster:

    The channelled chassis version was used, with fenders from the Stacey David Rat Roaster kit.  The AMT '34 5-window provided the wheels with parts box tyres and rear bumper.  Paint is Testor's Dark Cherry Pearl with Tamiya clear, all from the spraycan.  The front axle was lowered and basic engine wiring added, together with a Model Parts Garage 1932 instrument cluster.

    Progress on the Model A - front and rear axles have now been fitted, together with exhausts.  I have also fitted a smooth panel to the dashboard ready for the Revell '32 Ford gauges.  Firewall is gloss white, interior is Tamiya Pearl White.

    Great build Ashley, looks awesome!

    Great job on the decals.  I've built the earlier version, the decals are a little thick, but at least they are strong and survive the trauma of getting them to lay down nice and smooth .

    Another WIP of mine that I've been delaying for a long time.  Finally plucked up the courage to apply the two colour paint scheme using my usual Tamiya spraycans, TS44 Brilliant Blue followed by Gloss Black. Having got that hurdle out of the way (with a few touch ups required), I couldn't wait to apply the Hobby Design decals I bought a couple of years ago.  Dozens of decals later, I have finished the body but now have dozens more carbon fibre decals to negotiate.
