Picked one up yesterday.  It is a beautiful kit!

 

 

 

The instructions are great- high res drawings.  Eight page fold.

Details are super.  Look at that carburator!

It will be a few days before I get started- just finishing another kit.

I'm impressed with their kits.  Are you starting this build?  I'll watch for sure.

Thanks,

John

I am just finishing a a 1903 Rambler.  It is a really soft plastic and having a problem with paint compatibility.  I am going to accept a bit less of a finish than I would like.  I figure I will start modified sometime next week.

Don the  Modified looks like a hum-dinger for sure. looking forward to how you go on it.

?!? 1903 Rambler? I didn't see that build - did I? Regardless, you have to give us pictures of the completed car - it in the bye (the way) laws, I think Wink

Will do.  I figured it is so rare a kit that a WIP was not called for.  Was only going to show the finished model. But  I decoded to also shoot one before the boldy is finished, to show the engine and drive components.  I should have some this weekend and will create a new thread for that.

Okay, got the rambler finished and got to work on the modified.  Started by spraying most of the sprues with Tamiya fine primer.

 

I cut out the grill area on the nose.  I have some nice fine brass mesh.  I cut a piece out and dipped it in brass-blackening solution.  I'll trim and fasten on inside of nose.

 

 

I'm noticing something strange with my camera or lighting setup,  When I zoom in on a obect the color changes from gray to tan!  That nose piece is the same gray as in the upper shot!

Boy, I am sure finding obstacles in proceding with this build.  Now both of my airbrushes are clogged and being very hard to clean.

For those who intend to build this kit, research for photos seem to indicate the team changed its livery very frequently.  I only found one photo that was close to what the kit shows, and even on that photo the front bumper is black and not orange.  That is the scheme I will go with.
