I think that is a nice looking Nova.  However it is hard to tell, the background is way too busy.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Yeah, Rick is right. Gorgeous Nova with very nice paint, but the background is too busy to tell.

Looks like the guys are dressed for Edmonton weather. Thats a nice deep looking paint job. I've done one color shift paint job and I sure like the effect. Welcome to the forum btw

That may be true, but you cannot see the color shift.

Thx Rick   I got lucky with a spray bomb, I used a Rust-oleum Ultra Cover (2X)  I had both the model and the spray bomb fairly warm to the touch.  With the right amount of liquid sacrificies to the paint gods, and a light touch with 80 grit sand paper I was happy with the results

Hi Ernie   Thx!!  It is one of my favourite colours and Chevy Nova body lines,  right now after a couple it's a nice bronze colour. I should go outside and throw it in the snow bank to see how it looks!!  That '55 pickup should be finished this weekend, a few more sacrificies are needed to ensure the gods are happy

Thx Ernie.....Without a lot of your "Tips", candy wrappers and knowledge, I would still be building old Camaros for the Chevy Farm that have no great shine...remember my first '68 Camaro, the one with the "custom" front spindles?  Lol  Thx Ernie, your one of a kind!!
