WORK BENCH SATURDAYS!!

Recommended Posts

The Roar Before the 24 is on today, so I'll be watching and working on wrapping up my second Ford GT. This is the 2017 Le Mans second place finisher. OOB build with extra decals from Powerslide on the wheels and roof decal from the 2016 Le Mans sheet I have. Paint is Gravity Colors red/white/blue on the body and OZ gun metal on the wheels with Scale Finishes blacks on the chassis.

Very nicely done. The painting has kept me away from this kit, but yours is fantastic!

What is that Lindberg box? And is that a ram charger based 4 door SUV on the shelf?

The Lindberg box is a 67-70 Chevy van.  As for the Dodge, it is a Phantom 70's Ramburban.

I started building it in 1996. Traded it off in 98. Got it back in 2016 in same condition that I had traded it off in.

Stripping chrome as I won't have much on this model and working on the engine block. Seams were tough so, spent the past two day alone just working on them also, working on other bits and pieces for the engine.

Ooooh, looks like a metallic blue of some sort....

Interior to be a "Fawn" color.

This is my kitchen table. I live alone [mostly] so I take my meals in either the living room in front of my 50" Samsung, or at Mums or my girls.

 

I spray my stuff at Mums in her basement. I set it up pretty sweet and she doesn't mind the occasional fume or two.

 

And yes, I am this neat usually. Chaos and me have never mixed. It works for some though.

Been playing... in my quest to work on my huge collection of unfinished projects.  This one ticked me off in 2012.  I believe I'm past those fit issues.

Now the big question.. what color?

You have a nice space to work in.  If you can just find a place to display all your builds, you will have lots of room.  Congrats on a clean area,

What is that boat tail coupe sitting in your work space? Looks interesting.

 A bit late. But thought the o.p would like it maybe. Quick build, not far from finished.

Goofing off tonight and made a set of working struts for the tonneau cover of an upcoming 55 Cameo project.

Used aluminum tubing, brass tubing and carbon fiber wire. The CF wire is much stiffer than regular wire so it should hold any weight without flexing.

Later-
