1970 Monte Carlo
Posted by Retro Joe on Sunday, November 26, 2017 12:43 AM

I've had the body, chassis & interior for this one painted for over two years, and started building it just two weekends ago. Got it completed tonight. Color is Testors clear red enamel over a gold base. Amazingly, there is no clear coat on this model. Over the last couple of years, I have switched to lacquer paints for all of my builds, so this is likely my last enamel paint job, but I was surprised how well it turned out. I was also impressed with the detail on this kit, much better than some other AMT offerings.

Looks great, Joe! I tried that with Tamiya Clear Red but it didn't work out. Yours looks great! CoolThumbs Up

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.
