I bought this silver plated kit with the idea of spraying some Alclad candy over it. It should be a nice base for candy colours. But… there are just too many mold lines lines on the body that need to be sanded. Which defeats the whole purpose of a plated body. So into the brake fluid-bleach production line for stripping and sanding

That is sad, that there is so much work to do on the body 🙁
13. August, 07:51
Spanjaard
indeed, it was nice color. but i am sure it will be better when you finish with it 🙂
13. August, 08:33
Martin Oostrom
Lesson learned, do not buy prepainted bodies. I guess the Red Countach suffers from the same?
13. August, 08:55

Did the kit come with any markings? It's a pretty specific race car, what do you plan to do with it?
13. August, 09:04
Martin Oostrom
There are no race markings whatsoever. So I'm thinking it's someone's track car or something. Perhaps a purple body with a black trim.
I'd love to have an Alitalia version, but decal sheets are rare and expensive. Let me sleep on it

I have quietly been working on the interior and chassis. Now some of it is coming together
12. June, 06:43
Martin Oostrom
Some issues arose. The upper wishbones of the rear suspension didn't want to stay were they were supposed to go. Big blob of glue was needed.
During final assembly, I was glueing the headlamp with some clear. The clear part escaped from my tweezer, dodged the carpet monster and the other dimension portal, but landed in the drop of super glue I had ready for glueing the complete headline in the body. Some adult words were used!

Martin, no problems 😉
I know that few museums indicate correctly the aircraft's (sub)type, especially if they have been repainted with colors and markings they never have worn during active service. At Hermeskeil, several displayed aircraft have this problem. Just have a look at my FB-album about Hermeskeil. It might help you out 😉

Go get him Chip! 2 things: 1. The black behind the rear window should be gloss, my mistake. 2. To get the rear window to fit, you need to sqeeze te lower front parts between the B-pillars . That one too me 10 minutes to figure out.
