Nancy and Ivo new builds

Posted · Report post

Hey I just got these done recently , yes I'm sure everyone in here has built there own Nancy rear engine so I finally got around to doing mine. It's all mostly stock except for the body skin which I made a vaccuform one piece body instead of the never fitting panels that are in the kit. Also the rear wheels are a little bigger and I made correct wing struts that attach to the top of the bell housing. The Ivo car, I couldn't resist making a car I wanted to make a log time ago. Thanks for looking.post-9426-0-47072800-1363061834_thumb.jppost-9426-0-09902100-1363061893_thumb.jppost-9426-0-90908800-1363061945_thumb.jppost-9426-0-59039800-1363061986_thumb.jp

Thanks everyone for the great responses.To answer a few questions both cars are 1/25 and the tinwork is a clear decal I made that is applied over aluminum painted panels then a slight clear coat of lacquer with a little transparent amber in it. Thanks again.

Wow, very beautiful builds! Fantastic paint jobs on both, and I really like the detailing too. If the pics were taken on Drag Strip or something like that, I would be sure that they are 1:1 Scale builds. Great Job!

Those are amazing. I have yet to do the Nancy car, and yours will be a reference point for sure. Great work on both.

Mark, Do I need to paint the panels or can decals go over the chrome, or is it a matter of adhesion?

What worked for me was I painted the panels and fuel cell with aluminum paint then with clearcoat lacquer and then the decals on top of that. Finished off with a clear coat with a little amber in it. Hope this helps.
