Built this couple years ago but never got around to sharing on this forum. Basically it was a quick build to get the creative juices flowing again and get me out of a rut/slump and motivated to build again. Total build time was around 48hrs. Being that it was built quickly, it has no chassis detail or engine so pretty much a curbside. As some of you might recognize its done in a style(my trademark colours you could say) that I have done many times before on other builds. Paint Body: Tamiya TS-14 gloss black Interior: Tamiya TS-49 bright red which was over-coated with Alclad ALC 314 klear kote flat Wheels Pegasus #1109 DZ's chrome with spokes painted/airbrushed with Tamiya X-1 black Normally dont polish or wax my black paint jobs, but needed to get out the polishing cloth's and wax on this one.
Many years ago my first ( and last LOL) scratchbuilding involved a 1/32 Airfix Escort Mk1 and some sprue to create a British interpretation of my favourite Funny Car at the time (I'm from England). Needless to say, the chassis/drivetrain was pretty rudimentary, I can't remember anything about it other than the sprue, it must have looked like something out of The Flintstones Hopefully my skills have improved over the last 40 years, so armed with a decal set from Slixx (RIP) and the latest reissue of the Jungle Jim Vega picked up on my Canada trip, I set about a version I'm willing to share publicly. The kit had lots of flash and the separate front & rear ends didn't fit the body too well, so not a promising start . Haven't attempted a proper candy sprayjob before, so was going to follow a method used by Tim Boyd in S*E some time ago using metallic red as a basecoat followed by red clear. However, I found some gold and thought what the heck, it's just a quick build so why not give it a try ? I was pleased with the gold/Tamiya red clear paintjob so on went some light clearcoats and the decals. The chassis and drivetrain are OOB except for the injector hat which is from a '62 Corvette (my parts stash is pretty meagre ). I plan to get another kit and build a more detailed chassis to go under this body. Plus some of the more recent issues....
Nothing too fancy here, folks. I built this one box stock as a "complete between projects" kinda build. Interior is a combination of flat black, semi-gloss black, and a little red here and there (sorry, I forgot to take pictures of the interior before assembly. Body is painted House of Kolor Orion Silver b/c with Kandy Apple Red and the top portion is tamiya flat black. Thanks for looking.
