  1. Chris, the details on that fa 18 are incredible! i think i can smell the jet fuel
  2. My hat off to you sir, I looked at your pictures then went to where i have my models displayed and compared them to a couple of 1/43 Corgi cars. I don't know how you do it. awesome
  3. Thanks Joseph! No apologies needed
  4. Very nice looks like Ole Seb is ready for multi 21
  5. Sweet, paint is killer deep. very very nice
  6. Ok all finished, thank you guys for all of your positive support
  7. Thank you Joseph. I just added some more pics almost done.
  8. Well I had some free time and decided to catch up on this project. It is almost done so here are some updates
  9. I added the pics to the original post
  10. It has been a while since I have done anything on this project. A four letter word got on the way, (WORK). Anyway I decided to paint the frame metallic blue, Tamiya. Added a distributor, sparkplug wires and boots. Wired up the coil and plumbed the vacuum line from the distributor.
  11. So that was the original wet paint look? man seriously got to up my finish game. it looks like a HOTROD magazine photo shoot. well deserved awards congratulations!
  12. I was in Michaels looking for Flow Aid and I came across this kit in the limited model section. I have done some of the sub assembly and freed the side windows from the frame. I will post more pics as I accomplish more.
  13. No "Screaming Chicken" huh? LOL way nice and wet looking. All my car kits want to grow up to be like yours. The exhaust manifolds and engine details on this are outstanding.
  14. Ok one more question, how did you achieve the "cast iron" look on the exhaust manifold?
  15. Epic. so much to look at. It looks like you could turn the key and start it up! Did you scratch build the wiring for the plugs and the master cylinder tubes?
  16. Thanks, Joseph. that Maverick you did was the inspiration for the repaint. my next project is a 71-73 bronco let's see how that goes.
  17. Thank you David, can't wait to see...
  18. Got this kit for Christmas in 2019. I built it but was not happy with the paint job. It looked like I painted it with a crayon. So after my last project, I took it apart and sanded it down to body in white. Original paint job was Testors acrylic blue. The new color is 1 part Tamiya flat aluminum, 1 part Tamiya flat white, 1 part Tamiya nato black, and 1 part Tamiya thinner. The resulting color, which my wife approved, was compounded then waxed. I will include a pic of the original paint job.
