I'm on a roll this month getting projects finished. Managed to get two completed already (38 Ford Woody wagon and 96 Dodge Ramcharger) and I've moved on to finishing this rebuild project. I got this one as a built-up and started redoing it earlier this year.



The body is airbrushed with nail polish (silver and one called Mermaid) and I cleared it with HOK clear with some microflakes added in for a bit more sparkle.


Tonight I began the BMF and detailing the badges. I should be able to finish the BMF in my next session.

I should be able to get this finished in a couple more bench sessions.

Here is where it sits tonight. Just mocked up.

That's killer Tom. Tell me about those wheels and tires


I wondered when someone would ask. The wheel is one of those "I'll be darned" moments. I was throwing out an empty deodorant one day when I noticed this on the bottom. I just took a pen(anything long and slim) and rammed it out from the inside.

Took a while to finally get a set of four but I have been collecting them ever since. The hubcaps are some that one of the site members donated to me for the project. Tires are from the parts box.
