I'll join in with the hallelujah chorus. I don't know how you and so many of our members can do such amazing work in 1/24-25.

Thanks Skip! I agree, there is plenty of inspiration around here!

Yeah... there's not much more I can say that hasn't already been said here, except I could SWIM in that blue colored ocean you painted that car with. Incredible.

I just got a pretty good deal on a rebuilder '59 convertible. Body was done decently, I might do some detail painting, paint the interior and call it done.

I'm not looking forward to doing those little tiny strips of chrome on the top of the fins.

Steve- love it. Great colors, and always a great build.

The only good thing about the trim on those fins Charlie, is the fact that they're so straight. Try using some blue painters tape as a guide for trimming the BMF & it really goes quite well.

Wow, just doesnt seem fitting enough

I must say , you are definitly the master of these old annuals

Indeed.

Great colors for it too. And from where I'm sitting, your BMF work looks just about flawless. Impressive and certainly inspirational.

Thank you all! This was one of those builds that I just wasn't sure how it was going to look in this color combo until final assembly. Even though I was apprehensive, I was happy with the final result.

What a truly beautiful build. If I didn't know any better I'd say it's the real deal. Thanks for sharing this masterpiece with us!

Another vintage model turned masterpiece!

Say, did you ever finish that ' 62 Galaxie vert?

No, I have yet to finish it. I was less than happy with the paint job on that one. I may have to get more paint & shoot another coat or 2 on it. For some reason, I used an entire 1 oz. jar of paint on it & it still is not a uniform color. May have been a rare bad jar of paint from MCW.

Thanks guys!

Ludwig, I'm pretty confident I will finish the '62 Sunliner @ some point. Just need to work out the paint issues.....or just learn to live with it. :)

Steve, I'm wondering if you might have a shrink ray and right now somebody is out looking for their 1:1 car. LOL That is a beautiful work of art.
