Your welcome Tom! Hey, weathering is the fun part. When you do get around to trying it, the techniques are endless.

I wish Tamiya offered more motors in there kits verses the curbsides. They pay special attention to all the details it is a shame more don't come with them.

so my dad commissioned me for a couple of static builds- a couple of fighter planes he used to work on in Alaska when he was in the service.

I haven't done a model in forever...but I am up for the task. I learned how to do a cool trick using enamel and drybrushing for depth. I will keep you guys posted.

I will probably need some tips along the way haha

Here's one I built a while back. I had a 66 Mustang and this was what I wanted it to end up like. I'm having problems getting closeups of the interior. All the gauge faces are painted and the interior is custom paint to make it look like the original vinyl. The body was airbrushed which worked out much better than rattle-can. The rims are from Pegasus Hobbies in Montclair, CA. They manufacture their own rims and this is just one style.
The hardest part was painting the trim around all of the windows.

Well done! :wink: I like the stance of those wheels on there. if you don't like painting all those trim pieces, give Bare Metal Foil a shot. The key is a sharp x-acto blade.

Thanks for the tip on the foil. It will probably be a while before I do another one, but I'll try to file that information away somewhere.

Digging up an old topic. I used to be into the 1/24 scale stuff and was actually casting a ton of parts that were no longer available or competely one off stuff. I only built off road subjects so I mainly casted off road related items and was the only one catering to the off road crowd. I have since hung up my resin casting equipment and I sold everything model related I had. I ended up keeping three models after they fell off a shelf. They are still in peices in a box in the closet. I may end up repairing them one day, who knows. Anyway, here is some of the models I built about four-five years ago.

I emailed him a few weeks ago and never heard back. Hope he's ok.

Big J, those are really nice rigs. Very nice work! 8)

Looks good. i started building them at age 9 all the way up to 33. had over 300 of them some of them i build making my one parts and using left over parts from other kits. when we moved to Austin my then wife tossed them in the garbage. i didnt know she did this. she took them off the trailer and put them beside the dumpster. i found out once we got to Austin. i was so mad. i was going to drive the 3 hrs back just to get them. women gezz
