If I could make up my mind on a color for the Boss mustang, I would get it done. Ugh

Red?  My '69 Mustang was "candy apple red," my 2000 Mustang was "laser-red topcoat."
 
Helps when you blast past the slower vehicles.  They can still see the car through the dust cloud.
 

 

Make sure they don't catch a license plate through that dust! Cool

I was originally medium metallic red, it looked pretty good. But this time I'm going for something more OEM. Thinking maybe blue. We'll see. 

It used to look like this..

But I'm thinking this..

or this..

On the bench: Alot !

On Deck: Alot more !

Unfortunately they did once, Galatians; cost me $172.  Sad

The other two times, I only got a warning. Smile

Beautiful Mustangs, Brandon!

Oh ouch speeding tickets! That hurts. I could tell some funny stories about those...... 

How's your pup? I hope well! 

 

Brandon: Those are some good choices! Personally I favor the darker blue, but that's just me. Go with whatever one you feel you'll never get tired of looking at. Something that has tickled your fancy for a long time. I can't wait to see it!    Snail

At twenty years old, I had to scrap the Mustang last January.  Driving a Chevy Equinox now; much less temptation to speed.
 
Sergeant Saunders, our JRT is doing well; chasing cats.  Hope yours is also enjoying the dog's life.

Thanks Checkmate! Bear is doing swell! At the moment she's playing tug-of-war with a miniature tire with her sis. 

I'm sorry to hear you lost your car. Hey, at least you be able to carry around more people! And I wouldn't underestimate the speed on those newer cars Wink Not that I'm suggesting anything Indifferent 

I found a sheet of decals for various Blue Angels online. They seemed nice except that I failed to see the standard aircraft markings alongside the specialty markings. I may have to use some old decals I have. I still haven't decided on the proper blue paint...Hobby Lobby doesn't really have the best selection at the momens. Oh well, I may eventually settle on mixing paint. I have done that once before on a Vought Corsair I was working on years ago. Here's to adventure! Geeked

Bear has a sister?  Should keep life in the home interesting!

One of the advantages of having the Mustang was not having enough room to haul around too many people! Big Smile

Testors Model Master used to make a Blue Angels paint.  Amazon is still selling it, but it's awful pricey:  over $8 for the bottle!  Ick!

But here's the link:  https://www.amazon.com/Testor-Corp-Enamel-bottle-FS15050/dp/B008IUD9YS

They have it in acrylic, too:  https://www.amazon.com/Angel-Testors-Acrylic-Plastic-Model/dp/B0035LOWEQ

Also outrageously priced at over $16 for the little bottle!  Super Angry

Hobby Lobby online claims still to have the spray cans:  https://www.hobbylobby.com/Crafts-Hobbies/Model-Kits/Paint-Brushes/1972-Blue-Angel-Blue-Model-Master-Custom-Enamel-Spray-Paint/p/961

There's an interesting write-up about Blue Angels blue here:  http://tailspintopics.blogspot.com/2011/04/blue-angel-blue-and-gold-draft.html

It might be helpful.

Even our beloved FSM forums had a question about the blue way back when:  http://cs.finescale.com/fsm/modeling_subjects/f/2/t/27025.aspx

Hopefully you'll find something to work.  I'll be looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Checkmate I absolutely love what you have found for me!!! Thank you!!! Specifically the Amazon enamel blue! 

I apologize for the very late response. It has been my first round of tests and they were a doozy. Chemistry has a way of humbling you when you are up against a time line. Praise Jesus for His rescue with that mess! I do mean that.

 

Yes Bear does have a sister! Bear is happy go lucky. Noble is melancholy. Bear inherited bronze. Noble inherited brains. Bear (though very loving herself) has an independent streak. Noble freaks out if Bear is missing and is more than happy to quietly sit with you to absorb your affections. They are great girls.

I hope you find some workable blue among them.

I avoided chemistry (and physics!) like the plague when I was in school.  

Bear and Noble!  They sound like a great pair of siblings.  It's a wonder you have time for any else, besides taking care of them and entertaining them!

Hi 68 GT! No I haven't yet. Thank you though for the idea! I'm going to check that out today. 

Checkmate I can not tell you how busy! Wowzers they can keep you hyper if you let them! Lol! Mostly they just want to play and absorb love. 

Ah chemistry...... God's little reminder we are not know it alls! Haha! Snail

I just looked up the Scale Hobbiest paints 68GT. I love them! I'm going to pull up my shopping list and see what all I can knock out with one trip. Thanks again!  Snail

Whoa, this thread needs a resurrection! 

I found some time to work on my Monogram Me-109E.  I'm rather frustrated with how the resin and PE interior has worked out.  The fuselage is too narrow and some of the PE like the trim wheels just wouldn't fit.  Had to remove them to get the sides together.  The cockpit opening is too small to see much anyway.  I did some rework to fit a vacform canopy, that required some serious gnawing on plastic but I think it's going to work out.  I'm going to leave it closed.

My objective is get get the model back together with the raised surface detail as intact as possible and so far that's working OK.  The decals came off using Walther's Solvaset and a sharpened wood tool.  I never painted the top side except the yellow on the nose and the bottom had only a thin coat sprayed from an aerosol can.
