RE; P.E.And Putty
Posted by Tanker-Builder on Sunday, January 1, 2023 3:33 PM

Here's an odd question:

        In building a model car, A full custom say. Have you ever wanted to not paint over the P.E. and or putty to show off how you arrived at the finished product, prior to primer? I have dne it twice in my modeling years.I built one the way it was finished, wild paint, stance and detail as well. Then I built the same without the final primer and paint.

        Just clearcoat! Why? I wanted folks to see what it took to arrive at the finished product. It looks easier than it is! Believe me.

Have never done a full custom but can see how the idea would be cool if there was enough changes over the base kit to be ovious. 

Could get costly in a hurry though! In my slightly altered '60 Fleetside "restomod" I used parts from 3 different kits. In order to do a before and after I would need the base Chevy, another 86 Monte Carlo SS and '58 ala Impala kit. Would also need to glue engine parts on backwards, smear tube cement all over the intake manifold and oil pan and let it sit for 15 years or so to get it to what I started with!

Why do that when digital photos of the WIP works just as well?

I accomplished the same thing here, without having to build 2 models.Wink
