PostSubject: 1965 Pontiac Bonneville - From the WIP Box   Sat 18 Feb 2017, 12:28 am

Here's #1 for my 2017 WIP box New Year's resolution.  It's an old AMT 1965 Bonneville.  This one was originally painted a deep, dark metallic blue that I felt looked terrible after I painted it.  So recently it got the oven cleaner job and a second life.  Looking at all the models on the shelf, I have very few white ones.  So it was repainted with Model Master Classic White.  I also tried something new for me - applying BMF to the small parts prior to the paint job. Also, the seams were sanded off the bumper edges and they were Alclad'd.












The Pontiac crests on the trunk and nose were BMF'd prior to color painting.


OOPs, I forgot to sand the paint off the chrome trim on the hood's nose.


Engine a little dusty from sitting around for years.


Up close it looks like the adhesive residue from the BMF may have caused the paint to pull away from that area around the word.  The paint pretty much fills in the edges of the BMF.


Definitely looks a lot better than the dark blue.

Thanks for looking,
Mike
