@Nigel: In theory it is, but like with every handcraft you have to practice veeery long and much to get good results.

Thanks Guys, I fancy having a go myself

I'm just making my first foray into making molds too. If all goes well, I'll have a mold set to churn out Big Block chevys by tomorrow. For the little pieces that need a 2 sided mold, I'm trying out using Polymer clay, which can be baked in the oven at 110º C once the impressions from one side of the parts has been taken (don't bake the parts though) Then I put all the parts back in with a little PVA to hold in place, then pour silicone over the top.
25. July, 20:19

I'm watching the mold making process too. Have tried using Blue stuff, but it's pretty hard to get all the details, and like anything, takes practice. Plus that stuff is really hot to work with since you have to boil it.
26. July, 00:44
Christian W
I tried blue stuff for the wider wheel houses. That worked not well. The time to use blue stuff is to short to get a good mold of it. So there is no other possibility to build the wheel house extension scratch.

@Chaz. Sounds interesting!

Thanks for showing us your learning process!

Thank you :) You know: when you build and build still on the same kit there cones a point to get something different on the bench and get something done.

Paint job done. My intention was a darker red. But with the mixing with a little gold metallic, it looks like blood orange or kind of.
13. July, 20:16
Nigel Chapman
Paint looks fine. For me it's the silver and white along the bottom that gives it life.
13. July, 21:53
Christian W
Thank you Nigel. This two tone painting was fixed on the to do list from the day, I washed all my shelf sitters. Regarding the boxart, it was all good as possible done that time, I've built it. But today I like the two tone because of that, you've written.

I love that car, I think you are doing her justice.. ;)
May I ask, what lines of primers and paints you're using?

Christian W
@Bob … Patrick Star rocks :D

@JD … For this one I used a light grey primer out of a rattle can. I can't tell you at the point, which one it was. I have to look in my shelf and tell you later the day. I think it was "Presto" (Germany).
The color itself is enamel by Revell painted with my 0.3 airbrush. I mixed red #330 with a little bit silver #90 and a little more of gold #94. The gold and silver turned the red into that dark orange.
The silver on the skirts are enamel by Revell (silver #90).
The clear cote is out of the rattle can from "K" (Kwasny / Germany).
14. July, 08:37
JD
Ah, enamels.. Very cool! I've been wanting to airbrush enamels for awhile now, but I need to upgrade my spray booth first. She's looking sexy!

Thank you mates :)
I like this model kit. It is good to build. Only the bed needs a little attention to get it in line with the body. On one GMC I had to take the right panel off to correct it. With a closer look from the rear the bed is warped. Don't know, where this comes from. I fixed it with the correction of the sidewall.

I still thought red is hard to get properly on the picture. But this color belongs to the same category. Somehow.
It is a matter of the light - as you can see in the gallery.

I remember my kit in the childhood because i love the Styling as it was launched. My kit was from Tamiya, full kit with engine i thought and i cutted out the "Targa"-Roof. no paint, only glued together. I sold it decades ago...now, i think, i Need one again :D

Oh, and I am not sure about the Del Sol, but my new car has a rear fog light as well. It is placed at the lowest part of the rear of my car, the hope is that anyone behind me, will see me before they plow into me at twice my speed while in the fog. It's logical, but not sure how well it works, since I am the one driving and we don't have much fog here in the Philippines.
27. June 2019, 14:10
Christian W
That's funny about the fog light and quite interessting, that you have it too!
I can tell you: my Del Sol isn't leaking. Not when it rains or in the car wash. I read about it but I think mine is a good one. It's original all over - except the Radio.

11. May, 14:37

I took a wooden swizzle stick with the thickness and width of the grille. Then I wrapped silver wire packed around it. Cut the roundings apart and glued the ends together. At the end I bent it a little better in form. I'm okwith the outcome.

The Ford is done. The kit itself is good. Some things were to fix but not that big issue.

Sadly there is no interest for it. I don't care because I'm building for me on the first place.. That counts. I had fun building it. It looks good and fits very good into my old Ford line.

Yeah, you can post some great work and nobody cares, and others get comments for doing really shoddy work...I don't get it either...

Thank you very much. Yes, sometimes I don't understand it. But as I've written: mainly I build by and for myself. but on the other hand ….
I agree with your words totally.

Nice work Christian! The colour choice was perfect mate, looks fan with the painted steel rims & wide whites, proper 50's rod material
The Edelbrock valve covers are genius!

I decided to paint it red. Torch Red by GM. So it fits to my C6 ZR1. The choice was not easy. I had a gold metallic, light gold metallic, red metallic, green metallic and simple torch red to decide.
I think, I'm painting the strongest and hottest Corvette in Torch Red.

Thank you!
Tomorrow or the day after tomorrow it'll get a layer of 2K clear coat. This red is awesome. I liked it when I did the C6 ZR1 and C7.
