1/16 TOMMY IVO F.E.D.

Recommended Posts

I started this build in 2011, but, soon lost interest in model building all together.

Started with a Revell 1/16 fed, Slixx decals, Competition Resins body kit and Machined Aluminum Specialties wire wheels.

The large orange panel decals split on me. So, I taped off the body and applied Orange Pearl paint in place of the decals. I surprised myself at how good it came out.

Very nice, it's an accomplishment to finish something that didn't get done on the first attempt. Congratulations,  I liked how you used some resin and aftermarket pieces to make a unique model. The paint & decals finish it off nicely.

Thanks Joe. It does seem I am back into model building.

I have gone back to work on models I started years ago:

My first car, 65 Mustang, started on in 2014

One of my two fave mid late 60s funny cars, CAR SHOP INC 67 Camaro

In 1998 I started on a 1/8 84 Corvette I decided to go crazy on
