Looks fantastic, Tom. Those HOK oranges are my favorite colors. Subtle, yet still has that 'gotcha' factor.

very very nice model. great color choice. i also love the custom taillights, gives it a bit of character. oh, and your photography is great, too!

now i have to ask, because it just seems odd to me, why do you use the rear exhaust and side exhaust (it is a side exhaust, right?)? i don't mean to sound rude or anything because your craftsmanship is great.

keep up the good work! :D

Tom, how did you achieve that outstanding satin finish? Did you use a clear topcoat?

No clear just right out of the airbrush. its HOK paints their pearls come out like ya see i shot white primer and then the color

"Not Tom, but I think I can answer this one ...

On most, but not all, 1:1 kustoms, the side exhausts (aka "lake pipes") are non-functional ... they are there strictly for looks. Revell correctly depicted this with its excellent '49 Merc kit. If you look at the underside, you'll see that the lake pipes don't actually hook up to anything."

G O R G E O U S !

I wish we could get HOK paint over here in the UK (If anyone knows of a UK supplier, let me know please!)

Do the paints come in spray cans or do you need to get skilled with an airbrush?

That is a beautiful build. I hope mine turns out half as good when I get around to it!

I've saved the pics to my HD for reference, they're SO good!

Brilliant!
