  1. Most of the work in progress was done last weekend however I managed to get some hours in this week. I battled through the fit issues of this old kit, it didn't come with any white wall tyre inserts or any decals. I used Alclad black base over a grey primer, I then used an Automotive 2K clear over the Alclad base to give the shine. For the seats and the interior door panels I used Revell Purpurrot Aqua Color which was brushed over with a Automotive 2K clear matte lacquer, this gave the effect of a leather type material on the seats. I was struggling to get certain items correct as I was trying to copy the on screen movie image of the car which is shown at the end of the list of pictures. There was a badge under the front left headlamp which was the "Super Deluxe Legend", I decided to make something that looked similar using an old sewing needle to try and give the impression of the badge. Also I didn't have the correct number plates but I did delve into my Ford Torino Revell kit and I decided to take the Californian registration plates that were on the decal sheet as the movie car plates had California on them which was good enough for me. The silver solder stripes that I glued to the side of the car, although I did Alclad chrome the front and rear bumpers I didn't think it was worth trying to paint the rest of the chrome items that were around the car in Alclad as it was very easy to wear off when it was handled. I did find that the Vallejo chrome metallic paint was really good for painting small items and although it was not as good as Alclad from the look point of view, it was much easier to apply and resisted being rubbed off so easy as the Alclad did. I decided to scrape off the paint on the stripes to reveal the silver solder and with a little bit of metal polish they came up looking pretty good. Overall for an old kit I think it came together quite well and as near as I could get it to the car that was in the Back to the Future movie. You can see my work in progress of this build here.
  2. I picked up this kit off eBay at a really ridiculously cheap price. Not sure if anyone else in the forum has built this kit, I think it dates from around 1980 however it is very well detailed for the age of the kit. Quite a bit of flash here and there but nothing that can't be sorted. Although this is a 48 Ford, the kit gives you the option to build the car into a 47 or 46 model so I decided to build a 46 Ford that was modelled on the car that the character "Biff" drove in the Back to the Future movies. This particular car had distinctive stainless steel strips running down the bodywork, I decided that the kit supplied chrome tape was not going to be adequate for my standard of build that I was trying to achieve so I used silver solder that was cynoed onto the car body. The intention was that once the car was painted I could scrape the paint from the strips to reveal the silver solder as a metal stripe. Not sure if it was going to work but it was worth a try. The last image is a screen grab of the actual car out of the movie that I was trying to model.
