Awesome mods going on! The inset grille is fantastic, the subtle stuff like the hood is similarly effective and the fender looks superb.

Small update.

Base coat of white primer down. Next will be Arctic Pearl White (nail polish) then the real fun begins.

Thanks fellas!

I hit a bit of a snag with the painting.

While cleaning the AB I use for shells I forgot to remove the trigger o-ring. I use Acetone, which completely destroyed it.

I tried shooting the hood with my work horse AB, unfortunate the tip/needle size is too small for the glitter in the nail polish and it just kept clogging.

Had to wait until this morning to get a new one.

Thanks Chris.

Finally figured out what I am doing wth the paint on this. It's no where near my earlier rough rendering. I decided I didn't want t make a career out of another paint job, lol.

First steps today. I will be using the water droplet technique on part of this paint job.

There is a model contest next weekend and I am hoping to take this along with a few others. Such as the 49 Merc, the Rossi GP bike, and "the Willys train wreck", just for fun.

Thanks for looking in guys.

Thanks for checking it out guys.


Well that didn't go so well. I'll give it another go once I get it stripped.

Finally decided to go with a Monarc butter fly inspired design. The colours seem fitting given it's Autum and Halloween is on the way.

The base colour, Zero Florecent Orange, over Zero paint Gulf Orange.

Whoa, this is a lot of fun to watch. I like the reshaped front end. The seat decals are great; never saw those before but they're brilliant for the loud upholstery of the fifties and sixties. Can't wait for the final paint!

Thanks for looking in and for the comments guys!

I messed around a bit today. I added on some watch bits as stencils, looks like I need to come up with a better method of attaching them. I used tiny bits of blue tac. I didn't put too much effort into a solution in to how to attach them as they are  only be an under lay. They will be covered with a black lace transfer.
I think if I were to use them as a detail feature I might attach them with fish glue then remove it with water when it was time to remove them.
