  1. Paint is done and one whole side of the new decaling process is complete.
  2. Awesome paint, awesome detail, awesome build.
  3. With one current project now set off to the side while the paint and clear fully cure I decided to get back to another build that was started almost 9 years ago. This is a phantom schemed 63 Pro Mod Vette using a resin body that I created, a scratchbuilt chassis and homemade graphics along with lots of added detail. The build was coming along nicely until a massive failure with some old clear coat. I put the build away only to take it back out a few years later and try again only to mess up the paint work a second time. Back in the box once again. Now, I have a newfound motivation to finally get this right and bring it to completion. Here are some pics of where the build once was. And now where I'm at with fixing the paint work and continuing on with the build. It includes rescribing the door lines and relocating the exhaust opening.
  4. Another project completed and on the shelf. This was an old rebuild that was originally done with kit decals and lots or orange peel in the paint. Stripped it down, repainted, new decals using an old set of Upscale decals that went on great and updated the tires and wheels.
  5. Tires and wheels are done. Just need to add dullcote. [/img]
  6. Started on the engine. Detail Master air cleaner (not finished), pulleys and 3D printed valve covers.
  7. Front suspension close to done.
  8. Racing harness and fire extinguisher completed. Added leg extensions and padding to the seat.
  9. It's a Flashpoint Resins body. No longer available unless you find someone selling a previous purchase on Ebay or something.
  10. Started work on the dash and interior.
  11. Rear suspension is close to done.
  12. Decals are all complete. Started work on the suspension and fuel cell.
  13. Got started on the decals. Easiest decaling process I've done in a while.
  14. I'm pretty sure that I've posted the beginnings of this build way back when but it's been so long I figured that I would start over. I started this build over 7 years ago and like so many other projects it stalled out. Now, I've made a mid-year resolution to dedicate myself to completing some older, started builds. This is a 91 Dodge Daytona IROC build using a True Value promo (plastic) kitbashed with an AMT 90's era chassis/suspension and a whole bunch of scratchbuilding and added detail. I cleaned up the body and then made adjustments to the chassis to make it fit. I am hinging the hood and the rear hatch. When complete it will be a full detail build. After just getting back to it I have finished the prep on the body and it now has color. I am also getting started on some of the small detail areas like creating better gauges for the dash. More to come.
  15. This project is now complete. Revell kit with resin cast body of a newer version of the Dodge Ram along with homemade graphics done on my computer using an inkjet printer. They are not the most crisp images but the final build will look good sitting on the shelf.
  16. Thanks for all of the compliments. For the sake of this build it's just going to sit on a shelf so the taillights won't really be seen. If I ever build this one again I will visit Missing Link for the correct ones.
  17. MCW Crimson Red. Reasonably close match to Tor-Red.
  18. Yes, I believe so. I've had them for so long it's hard to remember sometimes.
