Patience grass hopper. I painted the Vettes interior tub maybe 4 or 5 times before deciding on a color for it. I had it a couple different variations of tans,,, then it was all white, then white with orange . Went with a semi gloss black with orange inserts on the seats and door panels I have to repaint the dash to match . then its embossing powder for the carpet then start final assyembly
Worked on the grille for a while,and I think it turned out ok. Unfortunately I had to deal with those ugly chrome headlights again. I stumbled on the fact that if you dont shake the small testors bottles of chrome silver , and if you just barely dip a brush in it you get this super super thin clear silver out of it. I think they look pretty good. Once its all dry I'll put some clear Elmers glue on them to give it some depth. The rest is just testors silver and then some blackwash in the grille grates and wiped off the ridges to highlight the chrome Let me know what you think.
I have to admit. The color is really nice. I think my application could have been better. to be honest I think I put the base coat on a little dry and IMO the metallic doesn't look right to me in person. But overall so far Im real happy with it.
Now I have to figure out how to replicate the wood grain on the dash and console ?
I use engine enamel on every model kit engine I build . Usually shoot it directly on bare plastic. Maybe one or 2 list mist coats , then once tacky I'll lay a final wet coat on then walk away for a few days All these are either Duplicolor or Plasticoat engine enamels straight out of the can
I was out and about today. And was close to my local Ollies. So , I stopped in and found they've updated the model kits table. Bought all 4 of the Candies and Hughes Cuda funnycars. ,,,while I was there .
