SHOW US YOUR STYRENE GLORY IN PRIMER!

Recommended Posts

Joker,

Where did you get the '59 El Camino Body from? I'm doing a Resto on one of my father's models; a '59 Lonestar Camino. The 'A' pillar is broken and an entire mosaic looking piece missing from the roof from a crush I suppose. If like to repair, but the styrene is so acient that body work is difficult. Maybe I can ship the body to one of you masters to help me with???

Great thread Doc!

V/R, CWO3 Beaman

Obviously all amazing WIPs.

But may I just say, both of these are absolutely perfect.

One traditional and one contemporary. Both beautiful.

Marshall, that Corvette looks great. It's been a long time since I've seen it. Keep up the good work. The truck looks great also. :) Dan

Thanks Dan! I had a slight mis-hap with it. So I need to repaint it and finish it. The van is another unfinished project I need to work on.

Here's one in primer from my bench. I found a photo on the net of a Honda missing the body parts and wanted to see if I could duplicate it.

I gotta few I can contribute to this one, I'm embarrased to say just how long some of these have been in process.

64/67 Impalla, started this one probably over a decade ago... long enough that I would probably do it differently now, and I'm at that point to see If I should start over, or fix it. This one always gets put back away before I decide

S10 I started a while ago too, ended up not liking the chassis mods I did, and it stalled.

62 impalla got this far with it, then decided I didnt like it, so it hit the purple stuff and is back in primer again.

I have many more that still havent even made it to the primer stage.

This one is finished now, but I always liked how it looked in primer

Glad to see I'm not the only one that has WIPs that were started in the 80's and 90's.

That's because we are still waiting for the Testors silver paint to dry!
