I have a big bunch of projects on my bench, '62 Impala is waiting for the second clear coat to dry, '50 and '61 Oldsmobile Customs are waiting for paint to dry in the interior parts and then there is a '60 Fury Mild Custom on my bench as well. But this just had to get going. Santa brought this Yesterday and since it is '60s Stocker I started it immediately by searching reference material about this car. I found more information that usually when building something from this era, so I could start building right away. As I already posted on Car Kit Reviews section, my kit (as well as many others) had one Racemaster and one Good Year slick tire. I sanded the tire texts away with a 400 grit sandpaper. Then I sanded the tires up to 1,000 grit and they looked pretty good. I might finish them with 2,000 grit paper, but I'll have to think about that... Then I moved on to the engine. After some sanding and removing mold flash, I glued the block halves together. With some Liquid Glue by Tamiya and sanding, I got the seam smoothed out and then I painted the block and other parts with Humbrol's orange. The wheels were also painted with Humbrol Polished Aluminium. Here are Pictures of the parts trees... Here the first picture shows one sanded tire and other one as it came from the box. The other one shows both tires sanded smooth. Engine and Wheels. And last... One picture of the real car.
I was wondering if anyone makes the decals for the "Grumpys Toy" XVIII COPO Camaro? http://www.gkmotorsports.com/gallery/nhra-stock-eliminator-copo-camaro/ I'd like to build this model. I already mocked it up and it looks pretty sweet
