"La Vie En Rose" - 1962 Ford Thunderbird Custom - 1/25 scale
Posted by PAOLO on Thursday, December 6, 2018 7:31 AM

Hi to all, here a project done a year ago. I'm ispired by the '64 Chevrolet Impala named "Gypsy Rose" a Lowrider decorated with roses. So started from the AMT 1962 Ford Thunderbird and plan the work. These project helped me to understand how to use mask and plan the decoration in the right sequence. for the roses, i used some type of nail masks that i found very useful, although not simple to manage.

Here some pictures, hope you like it!
