I finished this a while back. I messed up the paint job so lost all my momentum with it, just wanted it off the bench.

Wow that's a nice looking thing ... Very rugged looking

The only thing I can see is a "tiny" roughness on the edge of the stripe on the right rear quarter ... Is that it?

Very smart paint job anyway ... And nice and tidy under the bonnet (hood)

Thx guys. This was the "repaint" you are seeing. Some minor issues with it as well but nothing like it was. Never had Tamiya masking tap act up like this before. Was well burnished down but left a mess.

Tip i found useful (good for models and 1:1) ... when you've got the tape in position then blast a good coat of clear over the thing leave to dry as per normal and then hit it with the top coat.
If the clear leaks under then it doesn't matter, and when it's dry it blocks the top coat leaking through.

Man I see nothing wrong with your paint. I particularly like your choice of colors.

Thx for the feedback everyone. I think in the future I'll start painting the bodies first from now on. I'm not on the bench as much as I'd like to be already and do not need negative outcomes to push me away. I guess I'm so disappointed on this one as I had wanted a paint job that really popped to make it look Bad A$$. Just didn't meet up to my hopes and not being on the bench much I didn't have the patience to make another honest attempt. Figured I'd just cut my losses and clear it off the bench.

Brent, I personally think it looks Bad A$$!!

What I find very unique about this is the subject matter. I would have never thought of making a Scout into a pro-tourer. Very. Very different!

I fully understand your point of view on this Brent.  I have been mostly off the bench for 2 years pretty much and been struggling on a build for various reasons and it makes it hard to get back in the groove when you can't get on a roll.  So that leaves us with the options of finishing something we're not happy with to get it out of the way and hope the next turns out better or keep at it and bang our heads against the proverbial wall on the same model for months on end which seems to be the way I go more often than not.

I think what you did is the way to go and keeps a guy's sanity fairly intact. lol I like what you did with the scout which to me has a very boxy and boring looking body and you made it come to life and gave it a different and more aggressive look.  It's a sweet build regardless of your high expectations and standards.   Keep the models coming!  Can't wait to see what's next on your bench.

Looks fantastic to me. The overall work out shines any of the paint flaws. Get off that fence and jump into another build.
