Howdy, Im new here, but have actually have been a visitor many times this year. I started building model cars back in the late 1980's and then got away from it in the mid 90's until recently. I used to travel arount the mid-west and even a little on the east coast, back in the day, attending model car shows. I just started back up building this past year. Boy have I missed it. I have already completed a few builds and at some point will post them for you all. I recently bought the new Revell 70 Hemi Cuda kit and wow do I like it. I know there are a few issues with it, but, hey, there are with most kits anyway. And besides thats why they call us model builders. Right? Part of the fun in building kits for me is correcting what I can, and adding and changing what I want. Well for this build I decided to do a vinyl top verson. It will be painted testors plum crazy purple enamel. I'll be posting a few pics along the way. I have already corrected the wheel openings, built the side window trim out with evergreen strips, instead of etching them deeper- this helps with the thickness of the vinyl top material I am using from the model car garage. I, also, have already scratch built the molding, below the rear window, for the vinyl top from evergreen strips. The body in the first few pics has already been painted, clear coated and polished and I have already started applying vinyl top meterial. I primered the body with tamyia thin grey primer. Then mixed my paint as well as my clear coat at 50/50 with hardware store laquar thinner. Excuse the pic quality, my camera is almost as old as I am LOL. I'll be posting more as I go along. Thanks in advance for checking this post out.
