  1. Jameston-

    I don't see why not. That color is fantastic on that body. Nice work. Did you ever manage to get spray cans of your paint available? I finally got an airbrush but no hose yet.

  2. Here is tonight's progress of finally getting around to painting the stripes.

    Tomorrow I will do some small touch-ups on the paint and finish scratch building and painting the visors. I may finish the engine work too.

    Thanks for looking and comments/ criticisms welcomed.

  3. I got the idea a while ago to build a model of a drawing that Jairus did of a 70 1/2 Camaro convertible. I was really jazzed about the project when I saw the photo and like all of my builds it has sort of drug out. I had the interior and chassis done quite a while ago. These few photos were taken about the middle of last year.

  4. Jairus-

    Here is a few shots of the 70 1/2 Camaro Convertible that you drew up a while ago. I just pulled the masking off from painting the stripes. It isn't exactly like the drawing but it was your idea that gave me the inspiration. Hopefully I'll have it finished soon. I want to enter it in a local contest April 17th.

    I hope you like it. Next is to paint and install the visors and final assembly and polish.

    What a nice clean build. I have one of these kits that I picked up in 2006 before I left Alaska for....sit down for this, $15. I like the fact that you built it stock. Thanks for sharing.

  6. It's been a banner day for me. I've managed to get the body work to a stage that I'm happy with. It's not perfect but... I also gotten the drip rails onto the body using .020X.020 styrene strips and should be able to get the trunk hinges molded by Wed night.

    I also got a couple of coats of MM Lacquer Bright Platinum Silver paint on my 70 1/2 Camaro Convertible. So, not only have I been able to work on my cousin's build but I also got some done on mine. As I said, Banner day. I'll try to get some photos posted tomorrow.

  7. Jairus-

    That's the photo of the Fairlane (Sorry) I was thinking about. I've got it mocked up on those wheels ready to be started once I finish my 70 1/2 Camaro convertible (in primer, to be painted this week)and possibly my 60 Starliner drag car with 427. I'm starting to see a theme to my builds. I'll have to call them the "Watson Collection".

    Looks really good. Your work is quite nice. I need to get a 69 Goat hood for my build to make it easier to not have to fill that huge hole in the 68 hood.

    I am finally down to putting the drip rails and trunk hinges on the 50 Ford. I'll swing it by your place soon before I drop it off to my cousin.

    Keep in touch.

  9. Railfrk-

    Nice job on the kit. What color is the paint? I like the stripe delete option on this. To be honest, I missed the little bumps. The license plate is a nice touch too, coming from an ex-loco engineer here.

  10. Sam-

    That is a beautiful job. Although I don't see any of the silver painted trim you should really try BMF. It is kind of a bear to get the hang of (at least it was for me), it really adds to the realism. Again, a great looking build.

  11. Chan-

    Those are all very nice and realistic looking builds. Do you have any suspension detail shots for the Chevy? Where did you source the parts from? I am wanting to do a lifted 76 Chevy Stepside but I really don't want to have to scratchbuild it all.

    Later-
