This is my attempt at replicating my dads 32 coupe stock car....I am not much of a car builder, and I did a horrible job on the engine and other things...I was attempting the paint scheme...and not so much color perfect...Plus this was my first ever go at airbrushing....
I did not take pictures of the process of masking...I forgot...as we all do at times...doh...my bad!
I did a fair job with masking..on the first round of paint...then I had to remask and paint again...this time I had paint lift...so I had to do it again...and I mixed the paint poorly and had some more issues..Finally I got to the point of...do I start fresh or let it go...I decided to let it go...I had some glue mishaps with the paint..some engine parts that decided to not want to go where they should.
So, I said PFFFTTT....and just slapped it together. I took a bunch of liberty with free form gluing and fabrication...pretty much how Dad probably did it on the car itself... ..I am going to make a 2nd 32 coupe stock car...and do it right this time..or AS CLOSE TO RIGHT AS I CAN DO IT...and bring the car into my view of a 21st century version of this stock car..
I hope to do that in the next 3 or 4 months...I have a bunch of Gundams to build and have to find a different kit of this car...
I had a pretty good time putting this together...and I have a sense of accomplishment....My first kit with a airbrush, my first car model in a LOOOONNNNNGGGG time...and as bad as I felt I did...it still looks OK
I am coming away from this build with a TON of respect for car model builders...
