A new thread for the numerous builds I’ve started rather than starting many WIPs ;)

I’ll keep this updated with all the kits I’ve started and more than likely add more as we go along. 
So currently in the workshop are—

Garage


2 Orange Dodge Chargers and a Signal Green Mk2 Escort. 
 

The Chargers are both VW Brilliant Orange but one had white primer, the other grey, just to see the difference 

Garage

Top Grey, Bottom White ;)

The brighter orange one will be a full General Lee, the darker one will have black steelies and no decals ( as I don’t have any more)

 

Garage


Escort will be an unmarked green rally car. OOB except for sone Motobitz Minilites

Mk2 escort

 

68 Mustang GT390. This was going to be a Bullitt car but I couldn’t get hold of the correct green. I decided to go with a gunmetal grey. 

Garage

I’ve opened up the bonnet scoops and removed the side markers as they were a bit too chunky, nice and smooth now. 
Chrome stripped from the wheels and resprayed a suitable silver. I may paint the spokes black but not sure yet.

More bodging and dodgy repairs to come :D

Nice paint work! I've NEVER been able to get a good paint job from a spray can.

Or matt grey as a Bullitt tribute?  Nice paintwork, Chris.

I’ve needed to acquire some of that patience thing :D

Base prime to check the body for imperfections and mould lines. 
Then another primer coat but wet cut it back super smooth with some 5k or 7k fine grit. 
Then it’s the boring bit of many fine coats from a warm well shaken can of topcoat with often days between coats. Going to work and British weather usually help with this bit ;)

It will be Bullit-esque so that’s not a bad idea
