Eliot Sawyer's Hot Tamales Taurus

Recommended Posts

Very nice! I see lots of detail on the wheels and tires. Looks like you had to do some fogging/blending on the paint job? Never tried to tackle that yet.

Great job Steve!  The Tauruses (or Tauri for the grammarians in the crowd) had a reputation for being a finicky model to get right.  Yours looks outstanding!

I cheated....for this era of Taurus I always use the Pro Finish kit (in the blue box) as a starting point. The body looks better and the whole kit fits together better.

 

I've been thinking of doing a little demo on how to get these things looking better, although honestly the subject matter is so old at this point I'm unsure how much interest there might be.
