Thank you! Building cars after years of airplanes has renewed my mojo. Great fun.

If someone told me that metallic green is the best looking  colour for a 69 Nova, I would have said, “nah”. Then I saw this, wow, what a beauty! Of course it helps that the paint is flawless. Love this build, very clean.

Cheers, Steve

The green was supposed to be Frost Green but I ended up sending misleading pictures to the company that makes my paints. I the end I really liked the color 😊😊

Wow, excellent looking Nova.  I assumed it was airbrush painted.  The paint is beautiful.  What brand did you use?

Yes. Airbrushed. I use paints made by a local company Dryco Colors (Brazil). They are car paints.

Thank you.  I misread someone else's post about wanting to try airbrushing.  I need to pay attention to what I am reading.  Your paint is flawless, just beautiful.

That's just perfection. I like this era of the Nova with a vinyl top. 

Really enjoyed making the top. Thanks!

awesome! just awesome!🤩

Thank you very much for the tips you gave in your Chevelle video. They were a turning point. I used almost all your tips on this kit. 

Including sanding the paint between layers. Great!

And applying dry coats of clear over the decals and then sanding before applying the wet coats. Man... What a difference!!!
