Two For 2020

Recommended Posts

Both of these were "entrants" in The "Bring Out Your Dead" thread. Probably my biggest accomplishment in 2020 was figuring out a setup so I can punch louvers.Those are my favorite aspect of the "Indy-ish" Monogram Midget. Looks like I need to take better photos of the Firebird.

The paint work on the Firebird is really impressive looking. The little Midget looks great and I would like to learn more about doing the louvers for the hood ?

Thank you, David. The most taxing part of the paint on the Firebird was hand-striping the blue. Even that wasn't too bad, using Sign Painter's One-Shot enamel. You can see the whole process of discovery regarding the louvers,  here:

We both got 'em  done! I just started a brand new project, so, I'm out for this round. I should have the new one done in time  for the round that begins in March, should the thread continue. I have a Monogram Don Edmonds' Modified that's been sitting for 25 years, or so.

Thank you, Bernard. The first thing off the bench, this year will likely be something a bit outside of my normal stuff. I've started working on one of the Monogram 1926 Macks. It's intended to be a "canvas" for me to work on paint/weathering stuff. Hope all is well, with you, too!

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to comment! I really appreciate it. I am very happy with the midget--I learned a lot, in its creation. It's satisfying to see the response it's gotten from others.

Very cool the Bring Out Your Dead inspired you to finish these.  The Firebird paint job is amazing, but the sprint car is very special.

Thank  you, Kurt. I appreciate it! I enjoy your work, as well. That "Bring Out Your Dead" thing has prompted four completions, for me! It's nice to get some of these ancient projects off the bench.
