Hey Rani, turn your yellow car into something like this: Great job and have fun! tmm
Thanx,...Xmas gift from my best friend,....I almost bought a Snap-On box but It hadda a coupla extra zero's on the price...
The guy bought it crashed and parked it around a tree in his yard just for fun. I can't remember his name but he has a Mopar restoration shop in southern Minnesota. We visited his shop this year when we went to the Midwest Mopars in the Park show in Farmington Mn. tmm
I'm picturing a 'smashed up against a power pole' motif edit-I see tmm is way ahead of me lol.
What is the paint code for that royal blue type color on the 69 model cars? Seems like it was a little darker than b5
Nah. Got t-boned by a bear in the mountains of CO. I actually saw that happen to a Taurus in front of me on on our way through telluride, Co last week. Lol similar damage
Here is my 1960 Plymouth wagon, Johan model kit bashed with a pro-street 69 RR kit, built it over 22 years ago! I always liked this one :glasses7:
sweet thread some one tell me when threads like this get started so i can come see lol
Ok, here is my Daytona, almost put back together after all these years!! Still have a few small details but I am really happy how it looks again :glasses7:
Cool work and creativity on these models!! I have a few that I should build, but never seem to find the time!
the daytona looks whole again keith ! great job on the 70 Rani , im glad it made it without an accidents ! i might have to get me a kit to build
Ok guys, get the glue and paints out!!! Let's get started
thanks Mr. Lance there is going to more model car comps .....so lets get started ......see what you guys can bring on LOL this might become a popular FABO ritual at this rate LOL:happy1:
couldnt sleep, so i decided to color sand my 70 sport satellite project ....after a few days of gasing out the paint did orange peel more than appeared that first night.....i used 1200 bcoz thats all i have and that was a bit too aggressive i told myself not to but i did burn through on one egde but i know where its at but its hardly visable :banghead: so i will tell you guys where its after the model comp. LOL i wish i could color sand everything i paint this way ....but real cars dont fit in the sink LMAO the pic of the 1/4 shows it sanded, you can see the unsanded parts are still shiney .....there are places im not going to sand like in front of the scoop ....where ever you sand you have to buff and there is no way im going to get in there ....thats a problem waiting to happen and put this car back in the paint shop ....dont want that ...LOL
here is the cut and buffed top and quarter ....bye bye orange peel and hello to a more even shine ....there was actually one inperfection on the top before that went away....it looked like dust but it must have been in the clear bcoz when i was sanding it i felt it smooth out if you look close you can see the reflection of my fingers on the camera in the 1/4 :cheers::cheers: still needs a final wash ...you can see the lint from the buffer
Rani,nice work on the cut and buff.Nice to see someone understand basic spray guns. Takes a little patience,so worth it.
the cool thing about models is that they dont take much room so i can do with them, what i do with the real cars and that is have a bunch of projects cooking at the same time LOL ....ADD-much i now have this 58 Belvedere "christine car" that is a quick prep for the paint shop ....i just want to paint the body and do the other assembly later. im planning to get really fancy with the trim on this one and possibly experiment with some formulas that might enhance the shine. i want to be able to do my make-up in the reflection of this car if it comes out the way i think it could ...it will become part of my "Rani Crown Princess" edition of fancy cars. its so exciteing....its really like painting a real car :cheers::cheers::cheers: BTW ...the assembly of the sport satellite is moving on very smooth ...so far no snags
Looking great........ I should do another model this winter and hope I can jump on this cool thread :coffee2:
Cool 58, love it :glasses7: Doing 2 kits at the same time? Wow, I could never do that, too fussy with one at a time LOL
its bcoz im ADD and im mainly interested in painting the body shells .....thats really all i want to do LOL ....dont worry i will get them finished LMAO
You should go into business...painting body shells for people...I bet there is a market for that. Paul
Here's my latest build.
I am so into modeling now... oh... that's cool to. lol
