This is a project I started about a years ago before we moved. So now I am trying to finish it off as well. Here is a couple pictures of it so far. The engine is completed and fully wired the chassis is built but needs some detail painting. The tires are from the parts box and the wheels & all the trim are from an older release of the same kit but have a slight gold hue to them so I am using them instead of the chrome that came with the kit. I am thinking a bright Green for the color and either a green or white or combo of both for the interior.
Well I finally got around to getting the paint on this one...Even got it cleared. Now I can start getting it finished off. Time to get the BMF on it next and get the lights and all installed.

Its a pre wired distributor I got off Ebay I think.... I got like 10 of them for like $10.00 or something like that...all kinds of colors. I cant remember the name off the top of my head though, Last time I looked he was still selling them on ebay
Thanks Marty... I didnt post any pics of the first paint job...But I painted the White first but didnt tape it off so when I did the green it had a glowing affect around the scallops....it was kind of a cool look...but wasnt even on the over spray around the scallops so I stripped it and started over.
I am happy with how it looks this time..It will look better once its got some BMF on it
Did a little work on the vette this weekend. added the grill, headlights and the taillight bezels. and did some BMFing. I also worked on the door panels with the BMF but did take a picture of it. Maybe I will have some time during the week to get some more done.
Very nice detail work. If you don't mind sharing, what's your technique for the picky black painting?
I used a .03 artist pen. I bought a 5 pack set at Hobby lobby awhile back and this is the first time using it. It was like $18 bucks for the 5 pens.....not bad if you use the 40% off coupon to pick some up.
