1969 Corvette


Recommended Posts

I just joined a few days ago. I pulled out this last completed model I built 2 years ago. I also like playing with the camera so I snapped a few shots of it. I'm not one to go super deep into detail but I was fairly happy when this one was finished. Don't mind the dust, It's very dusty in my place. I'm also open to any flaws you can point out....it helps me focus on my weak points.

Your paint looks great, nice clean assembly too . you should try some bare metal foil for the chrome around the windshield and maybe a black wash for the rims to bring out the detail that is already there .

I hear ya on the blackwash. I have done that before back about 10 years ago but i cant remember the formula. Matter of fact, I think I just sorta mixed some black with some thinner and it looked ok. Do you guys have a good mixture to share for the blackwash? BTW: I only use Testors for right now....I live 15 minutes from the place! Also as a sidenote...rumor has it thatTestors will be no more after the first of the year. Another company is taking over. I'm guessing they will retain the same product but under a different name.

I should also try the Future floor polish trick on it too since there is no clearcoat on the paint. Or maybe I could fine sand...na, scratch that idea! I'll mess it up!

I'm curious where you heard this rumor about Testors & whether the person who told you usually has their facts together.

I won't mention any names but I have heard it from 2 people. The first is a valid source. The second...well, my wife heard it from an employee that stated her job would be gone after the first of the year. I guess time will tell.
