Revell Hemi cuda 1970 in deep metallic blue

happy grumpy

Recommended Posts

Bought 2 of these, this is the first build while I was experimenting with different clear coats. It turned out ok but after a couple of years it degraded, it lost some of it's shine , I used krylon clear and although it lays near perfect it took several coats. Now I stick with what works for me . Tamiya ts 13 or Mr hobby super clear. More expensive but the results are worth it.

thank you all for your kind words. I was greatly inspired by Paul Michael Smith work. His pictures of his die cast cars are stunning. It's a bit of hit and miss. The distance, angle and height of the camera have to be right plus in my case, there is a combination of different techniques to achieve a reasonable result. It's a little time consuming but I found out that I enjoy photographing my models as much as I enjoy building them. So it's a win - win situation. I almost never show my cars and signing up on this forum was a way to share with fellow modellers my modest contribution to the hobby. So again thank you all who take the time to comment. I really do appreciate it.
