Hey guys…new to the forum. Here are some shots of my latest build.  Paints were all tamiya spray cans (not much room for an airbrush setup in my tiny nyc apartment!). Pearl light blue and clear for the body, racing white and black for the interior. Used a ton of tricks and tips I found on this site so a big thanks to all of you. Hope to add some future builds here soon. Thanks again!

Beautiful job.  I have owned a couple 67 GTX's and you really captured the look and the correct stance.  

Thanks! I’m jealous…would love to have driven one of these beauts

Ryan, your GTX came out looking fantastic!... Nice work!

....Oh, and the details on the engine are very realistic 👍

Welcome to our forum!   As others have said, the colors you chose for the body and interior make it look like the 1:1 item, and your detail work is dead-on.  

It appears you also added a vinyl roof, which is a nice touch.

Please post up some more of your stuff when you get a chance.

Beautiful. How did you do your dash?

Thanks…I hit it with gray primer followed by tamiya silver leaf. Then I masked the gauges and radio, foiled the glove box and trim around the gauges, and painted the whole thing semigloss black.  Then I rubbed out the foiled trim and script with thinner and pointed q-tips.  Had to brush detail the gauge faces since this was an old kit that only came with tire and engine decals. 
When it was dry, I put a few drops of uv resin on the gauges and radio dial and covered them with some clear plastic, cut to shape.  Then I just foiled the lower trim around the steering wheel and called it a day 🤘🏽


Working on a firebird dash now which is proving to be much more challenging… the kit wasn’t cheap and I really hope I don’t ruin it 😂

Thank you sir! Yeah, the vinyl top was a late addition based on a small mishap I had with some clear coat (but don’t tell anybody). It actually turned out to be a happy accident because I like the contrast of the black and blue. 
 

I have a couple other builds I’ll be posting on here soon. Just need to make some time for a quick photo shoot…

Very nice. I really like the color combo, and your attention to details is top notch. This is also one of my favorite Mopar bodies, and you captured it perfectly. Looking forward to more!

Excellent.  I used a MCG detail set on mine.
