I am really trying to get back into the swing of things but it’s taking longer than I expected. I have been working on this Ford since I got back home and it’s coming along, I have finished the engine and just completed painting the body. The chassis is ready for assembly and I need to start working the interior. What a slacker, get ‘er done dude!
What a slacker I am, been a while since I have posted here on the SMK website, thanks for checking in on me and forgive my laziness! Anyway here is something that I have been working on lately!
Been working on this ’41 Plymouth. I shot the body last night using some nail polish that I picked up over Christmas. I will let it gas out a few days and then hit it with some clear. I have some different wheels that I plan on using, the wheels in the picture were just for mockup. I have a cool set that came off the 65 Chevelle Wagon kit from Revell. I think they will look killer! Also, still trying to locate an engine. I am thinking a nice 426 Hemi with a blower would suite this hot rod fine. I know I have a hemi, not sure of the blower, stay tuned! By the way, this kit was a gift from my friend Mike Shanley who brought it into work one day and just gave it to me! Thanks Mike, appreciate that buddy!
I have also been working on this ’63 Corvette. I made a mistake mixing the paint, I mixed two different colors thinking they were the same color. It was nail polish and the brand and the bottle were the same, but one was a metallic green and the other was a crimson red! doooh! Anyway I mixed it up and shot it on the body before I realized what I had done. I now call this car “Deep Purple”!
