Really? How 'bout a street machine model I had built in the early 70's using the MPC '69 Dodge Coronet R/T hardtop kit and some parts from the JoHan '71 Sox & Martin 'Cuda kit. The paint is AMT lacquers sprayed out of a can of course and the spark plug wires were made from sewing thread pulled through wax. PICS

Oh, man. That's a throwback! Remember the cool new smell of the AMT lacquer vs. what we were using (pactra 'namel)? The stuff went on thin, blended well, polished easily and dried quickly. I won my first model contest in 1962 with a T-bucket with blended AMT lacquers. Thanks for sharing this oldie but goodie.

chucky, how can I ever forget that sweet smell of lacquer as I still love it today? My doc wouldn't like to hear that, so that's why I don't tell him that I spray paint. Yes I am "old school" as my very first AMT kit was a '59 Lincoln Continental convertible that I got in '59. After that, the rest is history.

If you're lucky, you will be old someday.

Wow, that's a brilliant statement! That should be a bumper sticker.

With age comes wisdom and experience! Too bad youth won't get it until they too are old.

Good life lesson. "I was then where they are now"

Nice Bee's guys! A thought occurred to me while seeing this thread develope, on a couple other boards and forums I am and have been on, they have a thread that always seems to draw attention. It is a basic themed thread that members post pictures that are somewhat related where the next poster for example on this thread may post another Super Bee, or maybe simply a red car in general etc etc etc...I think we all come here to see pictures as well as learn. Just a thought..

I converted this Super Bee into a stripe delete R/T for the Milwaukee NNL last year. The paint is MCW B-5 blue, wheels, tires, dog dishes, and carb are all from Fireball Models, polished aluminum exhaust tips, guitar string antenna, rear valance from Harts Parts, etc.

Sweet smell of lacquer? I remember working in a furniture factory while in college.  If you were anywhere near the paint shop where they sprayed lacquer,  the smell was ever present.  The people who worked in the paint shop were a little wacky and perpetually high.
