Fireball 500

Here's the AMT Fireball 500 built box stock. Everything is from the box, no add-ons or parts swapped. It's a very crude kit, like their '69 Barracuda kit, it has a very nice body though, and a car trailer is included in the kit (I haven't built the trailer yet...) So I decided to build this one using only the parts from the kit, only detail with paint and BMF.

Your build proves one thing, it is possible to build a really nice model without all those after market parts.

Good job.

Thanks everyone :D

That fade paint job was easier to do than I thought, I don't have much experience with my airbrush, still it came out nice. I used automotive waterborne basecoat sprayed with my airbrush, and urethane clearcoat sprayed with my mini touch-up spray gun.
