'40 Ford pickup

Post by allan on Tue 03 Nov 2015, 9:50 am

This is my next one that I am working on, Colours are Tamiya acrylic, Lemon yellow X-8 and Park green X-28, both are very bright colours, in the photo they look a bit washed out.

Well that don't sound good, I haven't got to the door part on mine yet, this kit does seam a bit of a pain to line a few things up.

P.S if you don't want the chrome spanners and screw driver on the chrome tree I could give them to a good home..

Morrie the only way I could get the hinges to work was glue the door skins in place put the hinges in place them the inside door panels, then the dash can be fitted. Rolling Eyes pm you about tools.
