48 Ford Custom Coupe WIP
Posted by modelcarjr on Thursday, November 08, 2018 5:50 PM

This is the kit from Revell and I started by painting the body a few days ago. I'll have to find a new engine and exhaust system as I used them in the 40 Ford Coupe I recently built. The color is Testors One Coat Root Beer that I have wanted to try and this was a perfect subject for me. Two coats of paint and three coats of clear. The first picture is before I rubbed it out. The next two after using 6000 - 8000 cloths and Meguiars Scratch X. 

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.

Looking good so far! Nice color choice. I really like the one coat laquers, they dry super fast!
