AMT 1964 Pontiac Tempest

Recommended Posts

This is a restoration of a glue bomb. The kit has never been re-released and is now quite rare. The chassis and engine were too far gone so I stole those parts and the wheels from the more common AMT 65 GTO kit. The paint is my own mix of Zero colours followed by Tamiya TS13 clear. The tyres are from The Modelhaus.

Wow! That is beautiful. A different background, and it would appear 1:1.

That looks fantastic. To echo the others, that paint is really striking on that car. Would have never known it was a glue bomb in a previous life. Great job!

A resto?  Of a glue bomb?  You set the bar out of reach for us mere mortal modellers.

VERY nice result. Excellent colour choice and clean work all over! The only thing I could think of as an improvement would be to use some UV glue for creating some glass effect on the "dead eyes" chrome headlights.

Love the detailing on the paint, particularly how clean it is around the wiper area. 

As a complete novice, if I can have mine look half as good, I'd be delighted.

Great looking car.
