Well 3 more days till I can order stuff i need i need for my mini freightshaker. 

So while digging thru another box of stuff i came across a decades old 1/87 ho 302 mini boss i finally got to.

It'll most likely be done before the truck it will also get 70's period cragars dual exhaust. 

Painted it with tru-color rio grande aspen gold as it's the closest I could find to boss higher orange/yellow.

So here's the pics just laid the paint on tonight interior tub is next then chassis.

Still need to p0aint the inner body of the car now.

I just checked my stash, I no longer have this model for whatever reason so I have ordered the parts to start over.  It'll be bigger and better this time.

After a bit of a pause, work continues on the Austin. I ended up installing micro magnets in the firewall and hood. I just couldn’t get a decent gap and make it easy to open at the same time. These worked real well!A557D773-14C6-4A6B-BD14-370A143855D4.thumb.jpeg.002d1d62c6dbbbd84655bd447952fff3.jpeg

Looking good! So good, in fact, that I'd be tempted to just LEAVE it yellow! B)

I’ve finished more models this year than in several previous years!  I’ve also been busy with NNL East and a new job all at the same time.  I may get back to the bench

After a little Novus polish, it looks fantastic!

Don't sweat it. It was good to have you on board for Round 3. Maybe you'll find something else that would apply on down the road sometime. Good luck with your projects! B)

Little bit of progress on mini Stang got the primary interior coat of aircraft interior black shot. 

Found another set of rubber for the cragars that give the car that 70's period big-n-little look. 

Let me know what you think. 

And the freightliner is being held up due to postal service hope the rest of the part's I need get here that way I can get 2 of the many done. 

Anyways here's the big-n-little test shot of mini Stang.

I’m leaning towards the 1958 Impala convertible. It was a close second so I guess I’ll throw that in the ring as next!
