Hi everyone! I hope the photo shows up. First time posting a picture. I am not entirely new to building models but it has been many years since I have built one. I am trying to learn all of the great techniques that I have read about on this forum. I do not have an airbrush yet but I am using spray paint for the body. I am using glue, paint and paint brushes that I bought seperately. Any advice for the build?

Can anyone see the pic? It shows up on my end. With my iPhone a little box shows up and I click on it and the picture shows up. On the computer it shows up fine.

I saw the pic of the kit the first time but not the second time.

Good luck with the build. I'll be watching closely.

I saw the photo on your first post. It sounds like you are covered for this build with the products you purchased. Advice....since you're going to use rattle cans make sure you wash the plastic and let it dry completely, and apply a white or light grey primer coat first brfore the color. I find that you get better coverage and adhesion. Mostly, just take your time and enjoy it!

So I wish I would have read this before about using primer. Alos I read somewhere to clean the parts aka wash them. But Here is what it looks like painted.

Hey PB,

Your photos are not linking up. What type of photo host are you useing? A few of us use Image Shack and have zero to very little problems. Some use Flicker and so on. PhotoBucket has been having a lot of issues from what I have heard and read. Also, forgot to mention it in my first post, but I really like that kit and look forward to your progress.

Rule of thumb for me especially over the years if you can do it to a real car you can do it to a modelcar or visaversa ceptci keep holding the candle under my leaf springs on my ram 3500 cummins and the springs still havent softened up any lol

This is the color that I ended up going with. I am thinking of putting a black side stripe on it. I don't work or build cars so I am struggling with what colors to use for the rest of the car. I have been using google and friends to help. I painted the undercarriage black and am looking into what colors to use for more detail.

Nice Roadrunner man.  Maybe two black rally stripes would look extra sweet!

So this is what the bottom looks like so far. I will be putting on another coat of silver. Now I don't know cars very well. But what else should be painted on the bottom? Please remember that to be specific so I can understand. Hopefully with doing these models I will learn the name of things LOL

Well, you’ve got the bottom pans, frame, and brake lines shown.  For the 1969 Roadrunner/GTX, those elements were black from the factory so I think your good with what’s shown.  The brake lines from the firewall to the brake booster are aluminum in the engine bay so make sure those get painted.  The brake booster itself was a glossy black.
