  2. hey guys i went to ( if not the biggest then close to ) Oldtimer meets here in Denmark Yesterday . and took alot of pictures . the meet is called Gråsten Oldtimerløb and after a few hours of show all the vehicles go on a run down across the border to germany . its pretty cool to see them all go and its everything old Trucks ,cars ,tractors ,mopeds ,motorcycles. this was the 27,th time and it happens every year . thought people might want to see how the scene looks here . i think there is some very interesting subjects. maybe some you dont see much in the states . so enjoy . and feel free
  3. so today i worked on interor painting and chassis too . also misc parts needed to be black ' seams one of the original color options for this car was white and black so went with that . going to add a few silver trim parts too here i added a few details . still need the silver trim around the front seats and the engine bay got painted gold on the inside and the frame rails too . i hope it will give a great contrast to the rusty body . also sourced a straight axle for the front from a 41 Lincoln . will be painted gold too and mounted with hi-jacker suspension OHH and not to forget i gave i
  4. it does kind of a natural camo . and that is also a nice one in that pic . i love the old American race cars ,
  5. thanks guys . i will hopefully get some more done later today
  6. on we go . salt wiped off and its good . sticking with my army theme it needed a star on each door . also with the salt method for consistency turned out like this and now im going in with a few wash tones to just push it a bit further and create some rain streaking like its been sitting for a few minutes it looks absolutly awsome im so surprised by the result waow .
  7. salty merc . he he this is fun . let it dry and got right on with paint . camoflage green cant wait to get that salt off now
  8. okay . engines aside for now . i started by priming the body lightly grey or actually i started by building a paint stand that rotates nothing fancy . just needed one . the hood is not going to be rusty like the body so it went black then the body went all red primer . im going to try the Salt method so building up some rust tones that can show trhu later . next the salt ..
  9. cool thanks for informing me . very nice of you . might just go with the 454 or maybe the original 390 and move the hi-rise and 4 barrel to that one . we,ll see
  10. these are very cool . will definitely be having them in mind
  11. hey guys thank you for your tips . I got the body primed just now . pics later . I gotta admit when you talk engines I dont really know what you mean exactly .. I get the whole displacement and cui thing but after that I'm pretty lost in the wonderful world of v8 engines and names terms for them . , what I do have from another kit is a 454 rat with holley 4 barrels mounted on a hi-rise manifold . would that be any good ...
