fudge biscuits; or; let's strip the Chrysler...

primed and painted the '55 Chrysler and gave it plenty of cure time, three weeks or so...

rubbed out some dust and flecks and sprayed another coat...

well; fudge biscuits are neither fudge nor are they biscuits. into the Purple Pond for a nice cool swim and let's try again, shall we....

which precipitated a change in build direction; i had been building it as replica stock but felt that my intended black paint job needed a deep crimson interior instead of beige... so, it'll be replica NEARLY stock.

i have run into some quibbles in the assembly process; the engine assembly isn't QUITE as straightforward and painless as the AMT '57 Chrysler engine. it still came out looking great, but there were moments... and locating pins that i cut off to make things stay put. i'm not going to cry about it, as this is a relatively new area for Moebius and i'll give them benefit of the doubt.

It's a great kit that I'm looking forward to building,hopefully in Tango red,but then again black makes it mean business.

some of the locating pins seemed to require almost "snap-fit" force to position them... then again, i'm almost to the point of building by braille any more. need a magnifying glass to look at the box art.....
