Pulled the green body out of the purple lake. Apparently I used a white primer way back when. The green came off in huge flakes. Went back in after some scrubbing to continue the process.
28. September, 00:05
Bill Newcomer
Chassis and interior primed and painted. Body needs some rework before repaint in silver.
30. September, 05:38
Bill Newcomer
Painted the body silver today. Ran out of paint with hood 80% painted, bummer. Both of of my gravity feed airbrushes quit working too. Siphon feed had to finish the job.

Looks great, silver suits a shark nose Stang very well ;)
The workshop is a fantastic dio for build shots, excellent stuff Bill!

After two weeks of curing and a little scrubbing, the paint job turned out reasonably well. Now I have to solve the problem of being out of paint for the hood.

Bob Hall
You can always do the Black Hood Mat option.

Bill Newcomer
Bob, Thanks. I have considered that option. I am actually using a resin teardrop hood. Also since it is to be a drag racer, a two tone paint scheme may be an option.

Have the body nearly prepped for paint. Kept having to fix self inflicted boo-boos when scribing door panels. The kit headlight rings are definitely going to require some rework.

Robbed the 428 Cobra Jet engine out of this one to go into the 1968 Shelby GT-500. Found (2) partial Boss 429 engines in my parts box. Will combine them as one to go into the 69.
28. September, 22:13
Bill Newcomer
Chassis and interior primed and painted. Body in primer. Hood has yet to be modified for (2) 4BBLs.
30. September, 05:37

Painted the body with Duplicolor rattle can. Actually worked better than the airbrushing I did today.
5. October, 03:18
Bill Newcomer
Two weeks of curing the paint looks really good. Need to build the engine and do some test fitting to determine precisely where to cut the hole in the hood.

Spent a bit of time prepping the body. Had to fill in some sink holes and make sure both ends fit properly.
10. September, 05:06
Bill Newcomer
Robbed the 427 SOHC motor out of this one to go into my 67 Mustang GT. A more appropriate 428 Cobra Jet from a 69 Mach 1 will into this one.
28. September, 22:15
Bill Newcomer
Chassis and interior bit primed and painted today. Body in primer.
30. September, 05:35
Bill Newcomer
Airbrushed the body with decanted Testors Orange over Tamiya white primer. Good coverage but came out flat as flat could be. Not sure why.
5. October, 03:21
Bill Newcomer
After two weeks of curing and some scrubbing with a Scotchbrite pad, I knocked down the flatness enough to be adequate for clear. The hood went into the purple lake 60 seconds after a failed paint attempt. Very little of the paint came off but it has no texture so it will get another coat. Wish me luck.

The chassis parts were painted long ago for the 67 Mustang GT. That build has had a change of plan so this chassis is going into the Shelby since they are exactly the same.
21. September, 00:13
Bill Newcomer
Body in primer after a lot of trimming and sanding to get both ends to fit nice with the body.
30. September, 05:40
Bill Newcomer
Painted the body today. Not happy with the results. Tamiya white primer has fine orange peel and rattle can blue exasperated it. Plus I ran out. Likely to go for a swim in the purple lake.
5. October, 03:12
Bill Newcomer
Well after a month of unemployment, my oldest son getting married to a doctor, and two weeks at a new challenging job, I revisited the body. Too much texture and not exactly the color I wanted, has it now in the purple lake. I need to find a dark blue that is not metallic. Any recommendations?

The other side of the fan looks the same. The fan has its own 120vac power cord. While I could have gone to the effort to wire it into the compressor's internal harness, I wanted the privilege to be able to run the fan even with the compressor off.
9. September, 18:14
Gary Dahlström
Bill - good thinking! I have that same HF compressor and, yes, it will shut down when it gets too hot. I had to run it longer than usual to paint my BoP base, and when it wouldn't keep pressure it freaked me out because that had never happened before. I salute your ingenuity, sir. I will be duplicating your mod.
9. September, 18:31
Bill Newcomer
Gary, Cheap and easy. Just need slightly longer screws and small washers to hold the 1st grille to the body. After that, just assemble the fan kit normally.
10. September, 04:24
Chaz Gordon
I keep toying with the idea of getting a small tank compressor with auto shut off, but we're planning to move in the next couple of years, and I plan to hook up to my workshop compressor then, so I don't get one. The trouble is the auto shutoff compressors only run up to about 40psi, which doesn't really store much reservoir between shutoffs, where a workshop compressor could run an airbrush all day on a single tank at 150 psi.
12. September, 09:53
Bill Newcomer
Chaz, The compressor I have above runs continuously because the regulator bleeds off to my desired pressure. It only shuts off if I crank the pressure setting high enough to actually trigger the pressure shut off switch assuming I am not using any air.

12. September, 18:16
Treehugger
Some tips from a novice like me:
1) If you mix colors with thinner or whatever in a color cup on your table, you can use a large soft brush to siphon the liquid onto the brush and "wipe" off the paint into your airbrush cup, that way you don't have to use a mixing jar for very small paint jobs.
2) A substitute to using an airbrush for fixing things, I recommend Tamiya's tiny tiny brushes.
3) Vallejo primer paint, may/will flake off and clog your airbrush, so I always sift the primer paint into my mixing jar. Previous problem of clogging was theb 100% solved after that. :)
4) Best result when airbrushing, and to avoid orange skin effect, is to airbrush on thin layers of paint, such that the paint dries, as opposed to staying wet and deforming when putting on too much paint onto the surface when airbrushing.
5) Always a good idea to test your spray on a scrap model, especially varnish which may or may not be what you expected (e.g matte/satin).
6) Maybe a good idea to keep a tidy and somewhat clean table, and go easy with arm/hand movements or risk knocking something off the table, or bumping your model or whatever.

7) Basic rule = lower pressure for close up work, may require thinning the paint a little more perhaps
8) Maybe avoid airbrushing at high psi. I get good results it seems with 20-25 psi.
9) Always use an effective air extractor, or risk the paint being blown back at your face/room. And always make sure your filter in the extractor isn't clogged, else the machine won't suck out enough air. Mine clogged up 98% after airbrushing a lot in one sitting, with higher psi, that was scary. If you light an incense stick, you can get an idea how the extractor sucks out air, if it works or not.
10) For airbrushing on a gloss coat, I use Humbrol Clear liquid (acrylic) and I make sure to keep psi at low setting 7-8 psi. I also make sure to NEVER contaminate the bottle of gloss coat, or risk being all annoying never knowing if your liquid is clean or not. Also, any pipette used must be dust free obviously. I keep mine in a bag, and I throw it in the bin if I accidentally drop a clean pipette onto the floor, as I will assume it has become contaminated with dust.
11) I like using acrylic paint, just Vallejo, and it is totall ok, despite what other's say. If airbrushing on a gloss coat, you might want to let all the layers get time to dry, or risk some paint layer at the bottom end up with tiny cracking patterns. Unsure if this is because of primer paint layer, color layer or any of the gloss coat layers cracking up.
12. September, 19:04
Bill Newcomer
1) Have not done any "small" jobs yet. Good tip.
2) Have not painted enough to try fix anything. If I get a 98% result, I quit while I am ahead.
3) Sifting, hmmm...
4) I have gotten better results with the longer, dryer continuous method.
5) I always shoot the (protected) floor of my booth on the 1st shot.
6) I plan well and have lots of elbow room.
7) Still experimenting with pressure. 20-25 for gravity feed guns. 30-35 with siphon feed.
8) Ditto
9) I have LOTS of cfm and a pretty big filter. It would last through 7-8 rattle cans before it looked bad.
10) I have not shot ANY clear yet. Though, clear acrylics (Future) have much, much lower risk of issues.
11) I have a lot of lacquers and enamels to decant and consume before I make the switch to acrylics.
13. September, 07:27
René "Bilbo" Bartholemy
I'll try the sifting idea. Big fan of Vallejo Air and primers, but sometimes it does get clogged.

Munky, Nathan and Bob, as you know I have been building two at the same time. That black one was progressing a little bit faster than the other one due to frame paint issues. The next one is nearly finished but now needs some minor mods on a painted and detailed cab (shudder). I am working up the courage to tackle it.
8. April, 01:28
Bill Newcomer
John, The CB antennas were a happy accident. I bought them from Auslowe in a package order and they seem to simply be some sort of organic brush bristle. (horse hair?). Anyway, when I went to spray paint them white, the paint lined up in little beads instead of coating it evenly. I thought it gave the effect of spiral wrapped fiberglass rods so I left them as is. I tipped the ends red with Testors enamel. I think they turned out pretty neat.

Thanks for the link Bill. I'm actually building something similar. I'll get some pictures when it's done, but I have to figure out how to post them on here? Basically, my internal dimensions are 2' x 2' x 22" high. I wanted that big, so I can paint a trailer or 1/16 scale truck. I'm only using two fans, but I see a method in your madness. Them filters are hard to get here, so I've opted for Filter wool. I think that's what they call it anyway? Only thing is, it over hangs my work surface by around 5". My planned exhaust is 4" plastic pipe, straight outside, camouflaged by a bush. Lol, let's see how long that lasts?

Bill Newcomer
Rui, Thanks, I figured if I was going to go to all the trouble, I may as well make a nice one.
4. April, 01:41
Bozzer
Bill, I'm gonna use PC fans. They're brushless and 12v, so they are quiet and reduce any risk of igniting any fumes, should any happen? The reason for the size is to allow me to place a built trailer in it. I can paint or even clear coat it, with easy access to the sides and top. I also plan on a revolving base, so I can turn the model, without touching it. I may make that motorised in the future, but for now it's just hand moved. I also wanted plenty of room to get my hands in. We all know what it's like, when you're trying to get into those awkward places? I'm also toying with the idea of a flip down shield, that covers halfway across the front opening. Once I get it in the cave, I'll try it out and see what happens? I have a few ideas, but not all will work, I'm sure. It's basically trial and error. I've put some pictures on my page, if you wanna see progress so far? I'll update it, as time goes by.
4. April, 05:09
Bill Newcomer
Bozzer, With the 12v fans you can get a variable voltage power supply like I did. You can adjust the fan speed. The booth in my photos with the flip down shield was my inspiration. With the variable fan speed. I determined I did not need it.

Nice work Bill. I think you're gonna need another one though buddy. These rigs take up some room! Did you ever have any issues with the top of the car hauler, not fitting correct and falling through? I didn't really explain that very well. I mean the moveable part, that allows you to let cars in the lower level? I have with mine. I tried a little heat, but it's not cured it. One side appears to be slightly warped.

Bozzer, on both of them, the pivot points are miraculously still the wimpy plastic pins on the original parts. At the tails, I actually notched the ramps to lay properly on the lower level. The cylinders were installed but I left them disconnected at the top to prevent strain on the afore mentioned pins.

Thanks Bill. After I get the backlog of kits out of the way, I'm gonna take another look at it. I'm thinking about adding some kind of L shape strip, that slots in, when it's down? That should solve my issue, hopefully.

If you only have sag in the middle, it should not take much.

Just playing around with this kit myself, for another group build I'm in. Watch out for the placement of the steering box. The instructions aren't very clear on it. It also doesn't help, when the part is over moulded. Bugger had me stumped for a while. I may post some pictures when it's done, but it won't look anything like the box art. Got my kit from Ollie's, when they were selling them for 20 bucks a pop. I'll look forward to seeing what you do with this Bill.

Thank Bozzer, It will get built. I just don't know when.

My minty new cab came today. I finally have enough good pieces to build this one. Since it is a hodpodge of new parts and a clown colored glue bomb, It may be awhile before I get to it.

7. February, 05:02

Hey Bill does the kit come with wide profile singles?
7. February, 07:14
Bill Newcomer
They are singles but definitely not wide.

1 or 2mm aluminium rivets should work if you drill out the hubs

A piece of sprue in a cordless drill. The other end in a hole, in a vertical piece of wood. Slow speed and a small flat file, held at just the right tension. That's how I repair broken prop pins on my 1/72 planes.

Here's the parts your looking for.

Bob, Yes they are in there but for that price, I would rather simply fabricate them from sprue. I DO appreiciate finding the link for me. :)
30. October 2019, 06:28
Bob Hall
Too easy. Wasn't sure, but didn't forget you ! If I had them I'd give them to ya !

Good news. A member from another forum was kind enough to mail me a set of spindles. Now I can make forward progress once I free up some time.

The people that rent the tables may not like that. Does anyone sell a 1/64th car alarm?

Nigel, The El Camino is not done and will likely be a long term project. (I still have to fab some spindles) I do like your group picture idea. I will see if I can make that happen this week sometime.
