1970 'Cuda

Hello Everyone,

This is a little project that I built for a co-worker. Revell kit mostly OOB, Pegasus wheels (painted), slightly modified suspension, mesh grill, Detail Master hood pin kit (sheesh!). Shaved door handles, front bumper, rear pan.

The lettering on the front, lower grill are his initials. Thought I would personalize it a bit.

Tamiya rattle can TS-14, X-10 for accent colors, Testors Wet Look clear with LOTS of wet sanding/polishing. I am pretty sure that I will not be doing an all black car again any time soon... ;)

Thanks,

Mathias

Beautiful paint job. I like the way you did the grill, looks much better than stock. The way you painted the centers on the wheels makes them look very deep set.

So, not really anywhere near OOB at all. B) Regardless, that's a sweet-looking ride, and one of the best black paint jobs I've ever seen. Well done and model on!

PS: Black paint jobs are FUN! I just finished a '71 Cuda in black, and I polished the kit plastic. It's not quite as shiny as yours, but it's pretty darn shiny and I'm proud of how it came out.
