I decided to build this one as it is a curbside and I wanted to build something quick that didn't have a higher degree of difficulty. However, I may have picked the wrong kit. Lots of pesky flash, not heavy, just enough to be visible especially after you get paint on it. So i removed all the excess plastic and sanded down the body parts. I failed to fill the two sink marks in the trunk thinking that I could sand them out and blend in. But that didn't work.
I white-glued the multi-part body and painted with Krylon Metallic Aluminum followed by two coats of clear. The clear turns the bright aluminum into a nice silver gray, similar to Sebring Silver. So I have a nice, consistent finish on the multi-part body. I'll pull it apart and clean up the white glue remnants after I rub it out a bit and then put it back together using the instructions. Not a lot of parts in this kit - similiar to a Snap-tite kit. So I won't spend a lot of tome with this one. Some interior and body detailing and that's about it! Thanks for looking!
If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR
Next on the bench: Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.
