Beautiful vette Curtis. Your detail work is very crisp. I've seen a few of these 3rd generation vette builds lately and will definitely be buying one asap. Again, gorgeous vette.

Cheers, David. 😎👍

Yeah Curtis… mock-ups have let me down more than once. 😔

That is a sweet looking Vette. Great job on the badging/script. Did you dry brush them?

Actually i applied BMF on the body scripts then primer,then a Q tip dipped in thinner,then lightly go over the scripts to remove the primer,then color coats and repeat with a Q tip dipped in thinner.Then i clearcoated over the whole body,hope this makes sense.IMG_4009.thumb.JPG.d758fabf982a2f27dd6f450bc538e2eb.JPGIMG_3874.thumb.JPG.35195872859d165e33fa6651399667c2.JPGIMG_3944.thumb.JPG.fe169598185cae43aaced03c51a2a0e2.JPG

Ahh, I see. So as long as you trim the foil close enough to the scripts, the cut edges won’t show or will blend into the body. Very cool.
Thanks for sharing 👍
