I got some colour on her,it was a quick and dirty mask job after spraying it whith.


Then I sprayed it Ford electric orange (candy) I had a run one one side and the paint went funny on the roof,it has since been rubbed down and resprayed.




If...it looks ok in the morning then it can be cleared.

Thanks very much gents.
Well I got her cleared today.





I have been scuttling away at the chassis too,it was created with plastic card and the framework is not structural.Just as long as it looks structural is fine..

Right, as long as the framework implies realism, it's fine. Luv the color and when I built, discovering clear was a revelation. Yours looks good, Keep us posted, thanx!

Been working on the suspension,the botom arms are 55 Chevy and the macpherson struts are from the spares box (unknown unbuilt Tamiya kit!) with a bit of evergreen as a cross brace.It needs tidying but the glue is still tacky so it will have to wait!

You had to fit every things through the window probably because you painted it orange, like the General Lee! :D

Well this has been fighting me every step of the way,I decalled it and the decals refused to come of the backing paper...The front suspension had to be moved [b]yet again..[b] and so on....Still it is getting closer (thankfully!)

Well it is nearing completion,the front wheels and engine have been fitted - even though the engine is mostly hidden by the rad shroud!
Next is the door handles and mirrors - they were only sprayed tonight so will leave them a while...LOL
