  2. Thanks all,,yea its kindof a dark orange,,was hoping it would have been more 'orange" than it is. Thanks for looks.
  3. My gosh,,Im stuck on these late 60's Ford cars recently,,here I took the AMT Shelby GT500 kit and did a drag version,,additions not included in kit : Headrests,,seatbelts,,rollbar,,drag slicks,, cragar mags,,,opened up rear wheel wells,,drag headers instead of stock exhaust,,lower radiator hose,,decals from leftovers from my stash. Rattle can sprayed W/ Testors Mystic emerald green. Hand painted 2 tone interior w/custom mixed paints. Hand painted window trim{s} w/custom mixed paints. Dremmel cut+ removed engine bay wheel wells. {so drag headers would clear} I did have to dremmel t
  4. Thanks so much guys,,always a fun era of cars to do. Funny,,I was thinkin,,the $$ value of the cars from the 40's to say about 1980 or so all have gone way up,, I think its because they were so simple in design,,and much more unique body styles,,pretty much rolling "artwork"
  5. Thanks all,,enjoy yours as well,,Build on!
  6. wow,,awsome build,,I have the MT 1/16 FC from back when,,wish they would re-issue a bunch of these 1/16 FC's again. Those decal set you used looks great on there

  8. Thnx Shoopdog ,,I was lookin at Evlbay lookin for old Revell chopper kits 1/8th and such ,,man there getting expensive ,,some are 200$ and up.
  9. Hey its gettin warmer,,happy spring to all. Just finished the AMT 70 1/2 Camaro,,I wanted it orange,,similar to box art,,but I used flat black primer,, sprayed w/Testors quikdry "Flaming orange" it turned out "Rootbeer Brown metallic" ,,which is ok too I guess. I should have used red or orange primer to get a better orange effect. Changed out the kit tires with some larger /wider profile,,added some basic wiring in Ebay,,made some seat belts from x-tras bx ,,hand painted the trim work. I do use BMF at times but not all the time,,depends on how crisp the molding work is on the kit
