Scale I Build

  1. On a lark, I wanted to whip out a model for the Box Plus category at GSL. I knew brand new shiny was going to win, but so what, I finished it in 28 hours. Building an old kit brings appreciation for what we have now. The total lack of location points was funny, the instructions have no reference for colors and part # with left/right was not clear. My techique for the patina: sprayed a dark brown first coat, second lighter brown has real rust thrown onto it when still wet, and then rubbed off the excess. The color coats were sprayed next, I figured out the colors using online color chips, by mixing test samples on paper, then mixed in the airbrush cup. I wet-sanded to expose the layers, some touch up was needed. Sure beats trying to get a perfect paint job! Because the rules allowed opening grills, doing this was doomed for disaster, perfect in this case. The trim is Alcad chrome. Final step was spraying Dullcoat with a drop of Africa Korps for dust.
  2. This just showed up in the parking lot of the apartments down the road from me. Brian has owned it for eight years, has put on 100,000 of the 400,000 miles on the odometer, and is on it's third engine. The front clip came out of a Camaro which also donated the rear end. I have more detail photos if anyone is interested, and access to the vehicle to photograph specific details upon request; 'cause I just know someone is going to build this . Just shoot me a PM.
