This is the first model that I built right out of the box without having to change or modify anything in many many years. Revell really nailed it with this one.

I did this one with three shades of craft paint over a gold base. The black was rattlecan flat black.  image.thumb.jpg.e504709594aca4c5f01baa6e

Amazing work with the tiger stripes - especially with the use of rattle cans.

This is an old Monogram kit I built about 30 years ago, I think. The color scheme is based on a hot rod in one of Henry Gregor Felsen's books (Hot Rod, Street Rod--not sure which, now.). The book's car was a pink coupe with copper colored wire wheels. The paint is a layered combination of Gunze acrylics and some pearl powder that a group of us shared from an auto paint supply store. I displayed it at GSL, back in the '80s, at some point. Mark Gustavson told me that, had I entered it, I'd have won Best Paint, that year. Live and learn, I reckon!

Beautiful paint Daniel, the pearl makes it really glow. Funny that you mention Felsen's book, that's the first book I ever purchased. I must say the picture I had in my mind back then ( 1962? ) was certainly a different shade of pink though :D

The green one used to be a basic blue Hotwheels 1:64 model. It was a good casting that needed a bit of sanding to smoothen out the casting marks. And then i went crazy on the detailing. Placed next to a Minichamps 934 for comparison.

I won a Lincoln Mint '69 Daytona in a raffle at the San Antonio Modelfiesta. No interest in building a diecast, but the 5-spokes and white-letter tires were awesome.  So, I decided it was time to update the shoes on my '69 Super Bee. After that, I opted to upgrade the exhaust with polished aluminum and give it a nice waxing.  Still looks nice for being painted 20 years ago.
