Body is primed.  Let the PSR begin...

Minimal PSR on this.  Today I foiled the scripts and emblems moulded on the body (and nice and crisp they are too - I suspect AMT restored the moulds before this release) and then put another light coat of primer over the foil.  Paint next.  I'm going to preshade it like the magazines would have us do on aircraft models.  I'm interested to see how this works on a car body.  If I can keep from putting the paint on too heavily thist should give it a patchy and aged look.

Ready for colour.
I did some semi random preshading on it today.
Having decided to paint it purple i've now changed my mind and it's going to be blue.

Paint.
Vallejo IDF Blue.  Or US Intermediate Blue depending on when it was purchased.  I did a blotchy black preshade and the a patchy lightened overspray using "organic" templates.  It gives it the faded and worn appearance I was looking for.

Camera and lighting have lightened the shade a touch but it looks nicely sun bleached and worn which is the look I was after.
Painted the underside of the bonnet and the front inner wings today and started assembling the drive train by gluing the front engine into place.

looks interesting :thumbsup:
do you think you could use the "organic" templates to make rust patches?
not sure if you would spray the rust patches afterwards or rust as the base colour and the original over,
or the otherway around?
just an idle thought....

You could indeed use them for that.
When I put serious body rust on a model car I use  two part "trick paint".  the first part contains lots of iron and when it is dry you brush on the second part which oxides it producing real rust.

I'm not sure i'm going to finish this by the deadline but i'm giving is a good try.  Today I was bending styrene rod with steam to produce the exhausts for the rear engine.

Oh well.  If it happens it happens.  Otherwise it don't.
I've got two on the finished list.

OK, i'm pulling the pin on this one.  No way i'm going to get it finished by midnight tomorrow.  Not and do the sort of job I want to do.
Can you move it to the relevant location please Chris.

Here's the pics from the last few days.

All the major work is done (I got the rear suspension set up today) but like with a real car build I under estimated how long it was going to take to finish off all the little things like cooling, fuel and a battery.

It's looking VERY good anyway, I love the stance from the side view.  :thumbsup:
