IJ001 Posted May 27, 2015 Share Posted May 27, 2015 Hello folks... ...Coming to you from a bright but cold New Zealand (it's Autumn here), This is my second post here at Model Cars Mag, the first is, not surprisingly in the 'Intro' thread !! Since moving out here to 'Middle Zealand' just over three years ago, I've done more NASCAR and Muscle car projects than in all of my previous forty-odd years in the hobby, simple reason for that... Not got too much space to display models nowadays and 1:48 & 1:32 aircraft need the space of three or four car builds. So, no more yada, yada, yada from me: In no particular order some of my more recent builds: Derricke Cope 1990 Lumina from the Monogram kit but with painted checks, the kit decals were just far too opaque.- My first finish after we emigrated. Ricky Rudd's 1988 Buick with Fred Cady decals - a straight replacement for the Monogram kit ones that were irrepairably damaged by damp when the kit was 'stored' some years back. Little known Dale Jarrett 'Busch Series' '94 Lumina, think the decals are WetWorks but I could be wrong. Again using a Monogram kit, but I prefer the AMT Lumina's. How great was this scheme ?? - Harry's '87 Skoal Chevy. Another built in 2012, this kit, just fell together, no problems at all. The decals are well over twenty years old, had them in storage all that time and they worked perfectly... possibly WetWorks again but I cannot honestly remember. Bill's '96 Thunderbird, started in 2012 and finished around six weeks ago... there's a story behind the delay, but I won't bore y'all with it now. AMT kit and decals with Tamiya acrylic paint. and finally for now... Terry's '97 Chevy, straight from the (Monogram) box. First of these '95-'98 era Monte Carlo's that I've built and (again) really enjoyed it. One of those 'no problem' builds. This time the paint (for the bodyshell) is Tamiya aerosol straight from the rattle-can. First time I've used it... Won't be the last !! So that's it from me for now. Please feel free to ask any questions, make comments or offer criticism. Thanks for taking the time to look. AFN. Ian. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
