My first Model
Posted by Alexander_the_great on Friday, July 3, 2020 1:11 PM

 Hi everyone,

I'm Alexander and I'm from Montreal (French Canadian). I just started modeling and I have my first model  in the books, a 1953 ford flipnose. As any first project a whole lot of things went bad. I lost a piece and had to replace it with something homemade ( That explaines the front bumber being slightly angled) and after that my cat manage to sneak into my working room and threw my model onto the ground ( Which is why my motor is slightly off centered). But overall I'm happy with the result  and I learned a lot. I cant wait to start the next one. 

Which tip you wished you had back at your first model ?  1953 Flipnose

Excuse the dust in the pics, I'm still waiting for my cleaning brush and micro-fiber !

That is ok, I did the same thing when I first joined. Embarrassed

Welcome to the forum. Your model looks great, especially first your first ever. It is unfortunate that you did lose a piece but it happens to the best of us. Yes

Looks great.  Better than my first one.  I just started less than a year ago and have 3 builds under my belt.  They keep getting better and better.  I wish I invested in an airbrush a little sooner.  The results are massive compared to spray paint and brush painting.  

BTW you guys put on a terrific Grand Prix.  Been to the Canadian GP at Gilles Villeneuve several times and you guys know how to throw a party!

Good luck

Nicely done for a first model.

Only thing I see is you might want to paint the belt and pulleys.
