'41 Willys. Burns Brothers Racing.

Post by checkmate on Wed 11 Mar 2015, 1:07 am

I've kicked off another build and this time I'm building the '41 Willys gasser of Burns Brothers Racing. Before my love of vans took over I use to mainly build pre '48 cars and gassers.

The basis for it is the Revell Stone, Woods and Cook Willys kit. I've put one of these together before and they're a great kit, this one will be basically stock with a few minor mods and some wiring to make it look the way it should.

I've had some decals made for it by another forum member and cant wait to try them out.

Today I cleaned up the mould lines and laid some primer on it, aiming to get some colour on it tomorrow. (Silver)

Threw some colour at this today and it came up pretty good. Got the body and bonnet painted and two coats of clear over it. (All Duplicolour) Once the decals go on I'll clear it again with Tamiya clear. Smile

Got some decals on her today, mix of K.S Pittman and SWC kit decals and some others a mate knocked up for me. Smile
Got the whole lot cleared with some Tamiya clear and was happy with the outcome.
