Decided to do a factory stock build this time around. The car is Testors Model Master Metallic Turquoise enamel. I'll be running wires, heater hoses for a little more motor compartment detailing. In this one I clearcoat with Pledge Future Floor Wax (clear acrylic).

74 Chevy Nova Update 100 - FINAL PAINT (Lots of Timelapse video)
My Day at the paint booth! Lots of time lapse in this video of every step I
took to get the 74 Nova painted. If you are wondering why I taped green
tape to my clothes is because I wanted to make sure my clothes do not flap
and touch the car while painting. Its tight against my body.
Revell 1955 Futura redo
Before it was the Batmobile, it was the Futura and it starred in the movie
"It Started With A Kiss" wearing nice bright red paint in 1959. I built
this model about 10 years ago having just seen one picture from a scene in
the movie. Just this week I found the movie on Youtube so I used scenes
from it to show why I painted it that color.
This model has had no polishing and has no wax. It has 3 coats of Testors
Bright Red and 7 clear coats! The kit is lousy.
Music is "Rock Delay" by Kevin MacLeod.
The irony is Glen "Ford" driving a "Lincoln."
Super Sleeper 1972 Nova - /BIG MUSCLE
Wanna race? If so you may want to reconsider. You see this is Dru Diesner's
1972 Chevrolet Nova and it's anything but stock. From a looks perspective
it's nothing special, in fact most people wouldn't put up $500 for this
thing. Look a little deeper though and OH MOMMA! You see under its faded
green paint lurks a twin supercharged LS2 that makes 1,160 hp... at the
rear wheels. It epitomizes the term "sleeper", and is lethal to just about
every other road going vehicle it comes in contact with. Big Muscle
recently visited Northern Chicago to get a sample of this beast, and holy
crap was it one of the best automotive experiences we've ever had.
'67 Mustang Model Car
This is my first model car that I've successfully attempted. Well...it
depends on what you mean successful. You can tell it's not perfect, but I
believe that I will get better over time. We learn through our mistakes.
Even I didn't want to correct the mistakes I've made because I can look at
the Mustang as an indicator
on what I need to improve on. It doesn't have all the parts, plenty of
fingerprints, and I messed up gluing the bumpers together (which I think is
the hardest part). Forget the shocks...those were too small to deal with.
It was pretty fun though, haven't attempted building my own model cars
since I was around 12-13 so it was a difference.
I have other model cars that are much larger and pre-built. I just want a
new hobby, that's all.
If you got any tips and tricks on building a model car, be sure to comment.
I'll eventually be building another model car, so I'm always looking for
advice on what I need to improve on.
