  1. Added new detail to front panels plus arm rests. Door handle and window crank next.
  2. The more I looked at the roof, I had to change it. I restructured my jig and contoured it a bit more. Here's a good start to the interior tub, looking at the front panel, I may change that now too.
  3. I have been using MCW thin fast cement, which works well. I am going to try and match what he is making it from. By the smell, it may be an enamel reducer or something close. I also plan to take it to my local automotive paint supply store and ask them.
  4. Some updates, I have been doing a lot of bodywork to get details a bit sharper and correct, (some rework also....). Roof is mounted, filling in window trim, including rounded section near the rear most pillar, cut in gas filler port. I know the roof looks flat, but I did shape a contour into it.
  5. No decals, and yes that paint scheme will be difficult. Maybe someone will do decals for me by the time I get to work on it.
  6. The Vette kits are from a maker on eBay called....The Parts Box. If you order, note that when I received my parts, they were grippy to the touch and flexible. Upon inquiry, he stated to put them in the sun for a bit, I would regulate that upon temp. I placed them out for several hours on an overcast day and seen a big improvement. I may put some out again for a time. Some layering is visible, but the parts sand up very nicely! Note the Vette is also made in larger scale, tempting!!
  7. There's this guy on eBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/334567546160?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=TwZjB10BTT-&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=nnyVb6gkTD2&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=SMS Plus some others, do a search on eBay.
  8. The decals came from Germany today for my Porsche 917/10 builds, 1/12 and 1/24 scale. A few others coming Wednesday from Indycals. These are absolutely beautiful! Amazing workmanship!
  9. In a couple pics I found, #2 is blue and #4 is black. Here they are together, I believe.
  10. That should have been a great time to be watching the circuit! I have gotten into watching the GT races for the last couple of years, love some of the new cars, but sparked old interest in the older cars as well.
  11. I'd be interested sir
  12. Thank you for the info!
  13. Got outbid last night plus missed the auction end. Found this online as a promo...not sure of the date sold.
  14. Looking for a promo or resin of a 1961 Corvair Lakewood Wagon, thanks.
  15. I would do a layout, draw a reference line at the angle you want. Also draw lines for the center section and cut each piece to length. The first piece laid down will be a guide for the rest. Or, if you use CA glue and keep it away from the center section, you could let them go a little long and trim after. Also prebend the ends around the top, liquid glue will soften the pieces to help.
  16. That is what I did for the Flintstone Flyer builds. If you are going to use liquid glue, use it sparingly as it will want to wick to the previous piece laid down. Here you can see it(sort of) in back half of the interior, but clearly on the seats
  17. Here's the roof and tailgate so far, working on the pillars and some body work.
  18. Yes, those are cool! Your digital image looks good so far!
