"Bring Out Your Dead" Completion Build--ROUND 2 Is On!


Recommended Posts

I haven’t seen any updates on the next round but if its a body count you need I will go another round. Not sure what yet as nice weather may limit my model time🙂. Most likely the ’56 Chrysler from the dreaded crypt of the 1:32. I will definitely decide soon.

Got the body polished and decalled. Will post photos tonight.  Man am I out of practice when it comes to polishing and finishing car bodies.

Snake, I don't see your name on the list or don't you count you? Or you aren't participating this round?

Finish date was last week? Sheesh, over before I knew what happened.

My bad--copy and paste from last round, forgot to changed the date. It's fixed now. Thanks for catching that. B)

Traditionally, we start with eight others, and then I come in as Number Nine, although the last two rounds I didn't get around to declaring until the last week or two. 

Soon as we have eight in, I'll declare, because I think I know what I want to do this time. B)

Got the engine built and wired, the dash is almost complete, next is polishing the body and about 100 trim pieces, think I'm going to strip the chrome and redo it in gloss black maybe some alclad II black chrome on the bumpers

Great work on the Corvette's interior, I like the fabric headlining too.

As mentioned above my entry for this round is this Tamiya Ferrari Testarossa. I bought it back in 1993 and started it soon after. The build stalled when I got to the body as back then I wasn't too confident of my ability to get a decent paint finish from a spray can plus I lost the mounting panel for the tail lights. I'm sure I can cobble together a replacement from styrene sheet.

After spending over a quarter of a century sitting in its box I think it's about time I gotter done.

That interior is gorgeous!

Thank you, I used rust-oleum dark cherry with matte clear then rubbed the seats with a little bit of canola oil after they dried for a few days, the biggest problem I had from that was trying to get the BMF to stick to the trim, I figure next time I'll do that part before the oil lol

Chassis painted in a dark metallic grey and the sheet metal and tub as well. Suspension next up. Also grimed up the rims a little but still need to pick out the studs in silver
