41 woody

Post by DeeCee on Wed 29 Jan 2014, 9:36 pm

OK, time to get back into it, i built this 41' woody many years ago, and am not real happy with the way it was done, engine bay was not painted, (still silver base coat), front and rear were lowered very dodgely , wood grain decals are peeling off aswell, so have pulled it apart, going to open the rear, line it out and drop it properly-ish.

BEFORE,


Today,


With the smaller wheels, i can lower it a bit more correctly, and get it lower aswell.

My first post,
Hi DeeCee,
New wheels are much nicer, Love the white walls
Looks like you put a fair bit of work into the original build, paint etc.
Any colours in mind.

I'm doing a build of a 64 Thunderbird as an exact copy of my 1:1 car (see Avatar) problem is i'm not sure how to do the white vinyl roof. the black roof on yours looks like exactly what i want but in white. Any tips. Cheers Dave

Your not wrong there Dean, never again,....although i do have another RX7 body, but might give that to Adam, just so i don't haveto do another one. 
Dave, welcome mate, and would love to see that T'bird done, at least they make a model of your ride. The vinyl roof on the woody was already on the kit, which i sanded off today, as i want more body colour on it,  of which i'm not sure of yet,as half of it will be wood. 

The only way i can think of doing a vinyl top, would be to use a stocking, (preferably some one elses)  Rolling Eyes , then lightly coat it with undercoat a few times, which will give you  the texture
you require, then light coats of satin white untill you have a good coverage with out losing the texture. practice a couple of times on something else till you get your coats right mate.
Hope this helps you.

Masking tape.  The wide stuff.  Stick it on the roof and paint it then satin clear it.
Do seams by overlapping the tape.  The texture is pretty close to scale if you chose your tape carefully.


I went up instead of down when I built my '41...

Abit of modifying today.
Opened the rear doors and hinged them.


Was not real happy with the way the bonnet sits up at the front.

SO I SLICED IT. Smile

FILLED IT WITH SOME PLASTIC, BIT OF SANDING, ALMOST THERE AND A BIT MORE STREAMLINE NOW I THINK.

There are lots of modelers in this forum but you are one of the few 'builders' mate. This is going to look soooooo good.

Cant wait to see what you do for paint. I just know it will be killer!

But at least you do fix it.  I like to cut things up, make a feeble attempt at gluing them back together and then but them to one side for ron.

Bit of painting today,  as usual, it starts with alot of masking.




A bit of shadowing, before the top coat.



Some candy red over the top.


Needs a bit more work on the "woody" side of things yet, but it does have REAL wood inlays.
