  1. Special Order Sunliner.

    Finally a sunny day!!!!! Some outdoor pictures. 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner by CCCP Digital Studio, on Flickr 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner by CCCP Digital Studio, on Flickr 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner by CCCP Digital Studio, on Flickr 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner by CCCP Digital Studio, on Flickr
  2. Special Order Sunliner.

    Thanks guys!! Very appreciated!! Yes, a little bit. The clear I used is the one that does it the less. Problem with Molotow, is the fragility of the chrome effect if left unprotected. It's ideal for interior details, and touching up the points where the parts attach to the sprues, but other than foil, is still not the perfect solution for redoing outside trim. Once in a while I do.
  3. Special Order Sunliner.

    Finished today. Still needs a final cleanup, to get rid of the finger prints all over. This 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner was built from the AMT re release of the Lindberg kit. The steel wheels were resin cast by me. The hubcaps were also resin cast. Made them on my dremel having as base a 1:1 hubcap I borrowed from a friend that owns a '53 Mainline. The chrome on the bumpers came pretty scratched, so I took the chance, and sanded the mold lines, and airbrushed the grille, bumpers, and hubcaps with Molotow chrome paint. Gave a coat of automotive two part clear (Sherwin Williams) on top to protect the chrome. The Special Order part is the color. The 1953 Ford was painted in Lincoln color Majestic Maroon. Hope you guys like it! 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner by CCCP Digital Studio, on Flickr 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner by CCCP Digital Studio, on Flickr 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner by CCCP Digital Studio, on Flickr 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner by CCCP Digital Studio, on Flickr 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner by CCCP Digital Studio, on Flickr 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner by CCCP Digital Studio, on Flickr 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner by CCCP Digital Studio, on Flickr 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner by CCCP Digital Studio, on Flickr 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner by CCCP Digital Studio, on Flickr 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner by CCCP Digital Studio, on Flickr

    Finished!!
  5. What did you see on the road today?

    This one is a special for Ray. It's a Americar Cobra replica. Body is fiberglass, it has a tubular frame, and a 302. Independent rear suspension, using the differential from a Chevrolet (Opel) Omega. Not the best pictures. Took them with my phone, at the supermarket parking lot.

    I use the Molotow paint for some small dash details, and little emblems on door panels and such. Note that I said paint, and not pen. I use a fine brush instead of the pen. It gives a lot more control, and a better finish. Also try using a clear that is compatible with Molotow to protect the finish. Testors acrylic clear works good.
  7. Special Order Sunliner.

    Little more done. Finished the detail paint on the chassis. Almost finished detailing the dash. Finished detailing the engine bay, the door panels, and basic engine detail. Still have more little parts to detail paint, but at least the body is foiled, and the glass in on. Getting close to wrap this '53 up.

    Thanks!!
  9. Comparing the AMT and Revell 1940 Ford Coupes.

    Call me crazy, but I think they tooled the MPC using a AMT built up. There is even a glue seam on the engine, that is molded to the chassis.
  10. Comparing the AMT and Revell 1940 Ford Coupes.

    According to what I remember, the Lindberg 1940 Ford was originally tooled by Palmer. Looking at the kit, it does appear to be a cheapo version of the AMT kit, but considering it was a Palmer kit, it was pretty good. They never released it tough, and the molds were sold to Lindberg, and they first released the kit. The AMT and Lindberg were never the same kit, they only look alike.
  11. Chopped 1940 Ford

    Very clean work. Also loved the color. The Revell kit comes with separate rear fenders. Did the resin body come that way also, or was the fenders came "leaded"?
  12. '95 Corvette Promo Resto--And a Mystery!

    Question is: Was the color available on 1:1 Corvettes? It suits the car, for sure.
  13. Special Order Sunliner.

    OK gentlemen, I'm back!! More work done to the Sunliner. Painted the argent on the splash pan. Also, painted the body color overspray over the primer on the floor pans. Engine now painted "reddish orange", even tough it looks red on pictures. Some touch up necessary on the transmission. Wheels and tires ready. Black parts painted. All black now will be brush painted on (frame rails, inner fenders, radiator support, and small details). Interior is almost done, still missing the detail paint and foil. Steel, aluminum, and zink plated parts painted: Carburetor and fuel pump: Also have to foil the body. More to come.
  14. 1957 Ford Thunderbird.

    Thanks Geno and Ray. Hope to keep the Fords rolling out of my "Rouge" assembly plant.
  15. Special Order Sunliner.

    Painting started. Engine is painted, and I redid the chrome. This time I liked the result more. Also painted the basic colors on the interior.
