Recommended Posts

amt's reissue from 1995 - painted with automotive laquer rattle cans - my first intensive use of Bare metal foil (a lot was needed !) - built in 1995/96, pics are from 2005 and 2008:

Very nice Marauder Helmut, the Galaxy nice too👍

Thank you, Mike - I like those body styles (the Galaxie was the Blueprinter reissue - I ordered 2, built one stock and cut the roof off the second to transform this into a convertible)

Really nice looking Merc! Great color choice.

Thank you, Chris, I don't remember the name of the color, but back then I bought a bunch of duplicolor automotive laquers at a big sale and used them for different car kits.

Super nice pair, love the 64 Galaxie that was my first car only difference mine was red on red, well done!

Glad you like them, Terry - I can only imagine how it would have been cruising along in a '64 Galaxie...

I think that I have found another modeler with a shrink ray. 😁  Your artistry is fabulous.

Thanks, Doug - but this seems fairly exaggerated -. there are lots of modelers here on the board that build better models.
