    Thanks!! Not really a big deal with Tamiya spray paint.

    Also, I never use primer with Tamiya spray paint. Only if it's metallic, and the plastic is not white.

    Oh God...
    When you have seven cats, cats hair is on places you couldn't even imagine!! Not to mention I don't even bother buying new sofas... 
    I have a collection of those adhesive little rolls to remove cats hair from the clothes before going out!!

    I'll add nothing to that...

    Thanks guys!! Very appreciated.
    Usually I don't have any issues  with Tamiya spray paint, it just comes out pretty shiny, and dried that way. If it's cold tough, let's say below 20 degrees Celsius, it tends to form a slight fogging, so I paint on a heated room when it's cold.
    I usually polish Tamiya paint only to remove a eventual dust spec, or little defect. Otherwise, it's not needed. On this Chevy I had to polish the trunk, as a cats hair got it's way into it and left a spot on the still wet paint. The rest of the model wasn't polished, I only waxed it to protect the paint, as I always do.

    1953 Chevrolet Bel Air. Something to do during the holliday.
    More than 20 years sgo, I built a Monogram 1953 Chevy Bel Air. It was my second attempt at rattle can painting, and foiling. The car turned out ok for the time, and I remember using the custom wheels on it, as the kit was incomplete when I got it from another builder. Really have to look for that model. It's inside a box in mu stash, somewhere...
    On present day, I decided to build the kit again. I needed something to do during the carnaval holiday, as I'm not a fan of the thing, and what better than building a simple, kit?
    Started on Saturday painting the body, and I did it the way it shouldn't be done, I painted the dark color first... I did that because I know that Tamiya TS-14 black dries faster than Tamiya TS-26 Racing White, and I wanted the thing done by today...
    Well, the painting went OK, I guess, and while the black was drying I built the engine and interior, all with Tamiya acrylics.
    As soon as the black would survive being taped, I painted the roof Racing White. By yesterday It was dry enough to foil. I assembled the entire thing today, and just took some pictures. It's far from being my best job, but I for sure had fun during the carnaval.
    Even had time to add some spark plug wires to the "Blue Flame" six. Also added some whitewall tires from my parts box. Really dislike the radials Monogram sends with this kit, and well, dislike radials in general.
    Due to the rush, I even painted the Chevy emblem on the hood with the colors inverted... let's pretend its not messed up OK??
    Hope you guys like my four day Chevy adventure.

    Thank you Dave!! And also thank you for your work, you have no idea how the box top builds were important to me.

    Sorry about the mess up Dave. 
    You guys both did great, and have being priceless inspiration for me over the years.
    The black and red car impressed me a lot as I was afraid of trying a black paint job. That car gave me the will to give it a try. 
    I built a green car to "copy" that box art the first time I got that kit (and it was a very poor job at it...). I have to get around to restore that model, as she got badly damaged when I moved (the box she was in got crushed and the front of the roof had a close encounter with the steering wheel and dash). I think I can fix her just making new pillars up front, and covering the fix with new foil, but every time I look at the wreck... Well you know what I mean. 
    By the way, do you know who built the Raven Black  and Inca Gold Fairlane on the box top of newer reissues of that kit? That is one of my favorite color combos for 1957. Just behind Inca Gold and Colonial.

    As soon as I saw that front end on the new release box, I thought right away I would use the center piece of the '53 Chevy Bel Air on the middle of that. I would make it longer by combining two pieces. It could even be converted to accept an additional headlight at each end.

    Ford guy ere, but that four door Chevy was killer. A LOT better looking than the two door versions, posted or hardtops.

    Thanks!
    No, the doors were very straight forward to build. No problems there, what is kind of what I expected based on the many AMT '57 Fords I built and the couple of '58 Impalas. 
    I wouldn't do a glass top, as I don't really like the looks the chrome crown gives the Crown Victoria Starliner.

    Very cool. 
    Loved the red.

    AMT 1956 Ford Vicky kit: 75 Reais.
    Automotive paint, reducer, modeling paints, household foil, brushes, Tamiya tape, Revell glue, Loctite super glue, etc: 60 Reais.
    Having the guy that inspired your builds since forever praising one of them: PRICELESS!!!

    Thanks again gents!!
    Thank you!! 
    Well, technically it's not box stock, if you consider the licence plate decals were not provided by AMT. I print my own, as I use Brazilian plates to pretend the car is mine

    She's a beauty!!!
    Also loved your work for the box art of the '57 Ford. That red a black beauty inspired me more than I can say in words.  
    My very first foil job was on a '64 Impala, that was also the very first model I painted with a rattle can. Before that I used to ruin them with a brush...
    It was circa 1990/1991... I have to dig it up someday. It's inside it's box somewhere in my stash.
