'68 Firebird

Here's my Firebird 400 all finished. I added flocking to the interior floor and door panels, I wired the engine, and sprayed the car in Wet & Wild Under My Spell nailpolish. I also tried my hand at using decals for the redline tires - I can use some more experience with this as I kinda stunk.

Nice. I just built two of these. Those tire decals are a major pain for sure but look great.

The interior shot looks almost 1:1. How did you do the steering wheel? Looks almost like wood.

Thanks, guys.

The plug wires were actually a purple color that looked like it would go with the nailpolish color when the nailpolish was still in the bottles. The body ended up darker than I thought it would, but I liked it. Unfortunately, the engine had already been done by that point, so I was stuck with that wire color.

The woodgrain on the inside was painted with Testors dark brown, then I drybrushed tan on and used a paper towel to wipe most off - it leaves some streaks, but it's not overly done. When that was done, I used a quick wash of thinned down black, then coated it in Pledge for the shine.

...and yeah, my son calls this my Hot Wheels model.
