Scale I Build

Found 2 results

  1. Good evening, Completed and photographed AMT's '63 split window Corvette. I understand it's a bit of a cliché kit, however it was the first go at it for me. :^) This version was moulded in white, had plenty of flash, but went together relatively well. The main issue was the glass - it's one solid piece and I found I had to compromise a little with front-rear fit. With this build my intention was to focus on a decent candy paint job, forego the engine and build it as a curb side. Paint is Tamiya X-27 Clear Red over Tamiya LP-62 Titanium Gold then clear coated with Tamiya X-22. I replaced the kit wheels with Pegasus Daggar's Chrome. What I learned 1. Tamiya tape may not play well with X-22 Clear. I know X-22 has the reputation of taking a long time to dry, but I thought 10 days, including many hours in a dehydrator would have been enough. Not the case as you can see in the photo below. At first I thought it was glue residue left behind but the tape actually crazed/reacted with the paint. There were so many layers of X-27 that I wasn't too concerned with burning through so I sanded it down with a 3000 grit sanding sponge and recoated with X-22. 2. Applying too many layers of paint made it difficult, impossible to dry brush the raised script and use panel liner to fill in the recesses in the 2 hood grills. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
  2. My project to build all generations has cleared #2. Monogram kit, not a high parts count but goes together very well and has enough detail to satisfy me. My father had a '66 with a small block-Powerglide and hubcaps so this was an enjoyable build. Comments welcome, thanks for looking.
