Natural Metal Finish Deuce 3-Window


Recommended Posts

First one of ‘24 in the bag!  I’d been wanting to work on my bare-metal (or ‘natural metal’ as the aircraft guys call it) painting skills, and I haven’t built a Deuce in a while, so this seemed a logical project to start the year

Used the Revell 3-window body, chopped, with the 2nd Gen Hemi from the 5-window kits, 3D printed wheels and tires, switched out the airbagged rear end for a Revell Parts Pack Quickchange with a T spring and used about every metalizer paint I own for the various finishes.

And some pics…thanks for looking!

Very nicely done Jim. Thank for taking us along for the ride.

I absolutely love the rear tires. The sweep from the tread to the sidewall just nails the vintage bias ply look in my opinion. 

As always your little 3D printed items are little jewels on the crown. Especially the taillight bezels and carbs.

I sent you a PM with a couple questions.

Congrats on a well done model, as always I look forward to following the next one.
