Revell 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda

Posted (edited)

Greetings!

 

After half a year of slow building, I'm finally calling this 'Cuda done. WIP of this build can be found in the appropriate section of this forum. Lots of trouble with this build, but I'm reasonably happy with the outcome! Difficult one to photograph, colours are all over the place.

Beautiful. What a shine you have on the paint. Nice stance too. And I noticed the wood rim steering wheel. Very nice.

Great job on that. It's a nice kit with only a few complications, but you can't see any evidence of those minor issues on yours and the paint in particular is excellent.

That's perfection if ever I saw it.  Beautiful finish, amazing detail, just stunning.  I particularly admire the chromework around the window and door frames, the wheelarch mouldings and so on.  I can't get my head round how you can achieve such perfection, even knowing what materials you use.

I like painting them on almost every model! Couple of different shades of brown, topped with Tamiya clear orange. Very easy to do, and gives a nice result.

I'm really glad you like it, as I had a ton of trouble with bare metal foil with this build. I had to strip/repaint the body multiple times, so the already pretty softly molded strips suffered a lot of damage. Blade of the fancy new exacto-knife I got just for this job didn't really didn't want to follow their edges, and I had to re-do some of them many times, particularily the rear window. I switched back to my trusty box cutter and had better luck with it. I was kind of scared of even trying wheel arches or that strip around the rear panel, but for some reason they went pretty nicely on the first try.

That's a great choice of colour and top notch finish on the paint job, well done 👏 :)
