Royal Pontiac's GeeTo Tigers (2 cars)

Recommended Posts

Here are some pics of the two cars that I've started to work on.  It was a little harder to mask off the White car because of the White body and paint.  I got the Gold paint on this afternoon.  I'll let them dry a few days and then spray clear over them.

I have had one of the GeeTooTiger kits for quite a while and really look forward to WIP posts on this one.  The paint scheme on these cars is quite  unique as the drivers side is different then the passenger side.

As I'm sure you already know Dan as far as the real car is concerened, in addition to the original 1:1 car back in "the day" there is a later version.

I know one of the cars was driven by Shirley Shahan during a match race with the "Mystery Tiger". I have the same kit, and I plan to build the car that Shahan drove. 23550105_1687088481342681_862380088027276483_o.jpg.106903ffd9acc5a891dfbb2f4021cfb1.jpg

Thanks guys.  I have to redo the Gold on the Gold and White car.  Someone that I know messed up when he sprayed the clear coat on it.  Me, that is.  Ha ha.  Oh well, that happens once in awhile.

Yesterday I repainted the Gold on the White car.  I'll sand it and then redo the clear tomorrow.  The Black one is ready for the next step.  I'm going to build the engine and install headers and then have to alter the chassis so the headers will fit.

Testors enamel.  That's what I mostly use for all my painting.  I thin the 1/4 oz jars with Enamel Reducer (medium dry) about one part paint and three to four parts reducer and use an air brush with between 12 to 18 psi.  The enamel dries about the same as lacquer.  In about ten minutes I can touch the bodies after painting but I usually let it set over night before I mess with it.

I used Testors White, Black and Gold enamels in the little 1/4 oz bottles.  I thin the paint with enamel reducer and spray through an air brush.

I had to repaint the Gold on the White one.  I messed up the clear when I sprayed it on and had to re-do it.  Next comes the building of the rest of the cars.
