My girlfriend and I just finished our latest project together, this time we decided to do a Hemi Cuda in plum crazy. We're pretty pleased with this one other than the fit and finish of the kit itself in places but it happens. A big thank you to the site for providing techniques on how to strip the chrome off the bumpers. Much happier with them in body colour. Now on to the next one!
This will be my second build. I have some new tips to use and new tools. Last build I didn't use primer, I am this time. I didn't do much detailing either, but plan on hand painting some stuff on this engine. Plan on a two color paint scheme. Going fiery orange for the main body with the tail and hood scoop black. Black interior as well. Very excited. Priming the body and larger parts now, along with engine. Plan on taking more time on letting paint and primer to dry longer. I hope by tomorrow evening I can start hand painting motor.
Thought i`d just post it as finish before i was tempted to throw it in the dumpster. Did so many errors and faults i could write several pages on it,but i`ll cut it short. I forgot to paint mirrors,messed up decals for the interiour,forgot to paint the underside of the hood,wrong color on the radiator beam,forgot to paint the top of the front housing the lights,grill etc. I painted the shaker in the same color as the surrounding of the grill,but the paint was really weird,like it got sand in it. So i stripped it,then painted it satin black,with flat black gasket,but this paint was weird too,it was only flat on spots and i stired the can really good before paint,so it`s in strip right now. And to top it all,i was painting an Chrysler 300C the other day,the Cuda was getting clear on the same day. It was in the same room,but far away from where i painted the Chrysler. Even so,it`s full of paint dust from i was painting the Chrysler,the list go on and on and on The paint is Tamiya. Decals i found on parts on Ebay. Tires are from Revell 69 Charger. Wheels are from Scenes Unlimited. Plug wires are Hobby Design. I do not recomend these,way to stiff. Radiator hose from Scale Production. Heater hose,i dont remember. Plates and quarter decals are from 71 Cuda Street Machine,MPC? Some photos. Thanks for looking.
