I have been absent, for quit a while, but now I’m back. Life gave me a few punches, nothing serious, but time and energy consuming. First my daughter and her boyfriend split up and my daughter moved back in her old room, which have been my hobby room, since she moved out, a few years ago. Fortunately they talked things through and moved back together(good thing, for we like the young man). Well I got my hobby room back and was ready, for modeling again. Didn’t get much work done though, before I had an accident. I was riding, my bicycle, home, from work and everything was fine, until a kid ran out into the street, after his football, right out in front of me, only had eyes for his football. I had no chance of avoiding him and drove right smack into the boy; we both fell to the ground, he escaped without a scratch, I broke my arm in two places and had to undergo surgery. Now I have a nice titanium plate and 11 screws in my arm. The rehabilitation have gone well, so far. I’m not quite where I want to be and my wrist will never be as good, as it was, but I’m still working on it. I can build models now and have been able to start my martial arts training again, so things are looking fairly good.
I have plenty of shelf queens, I could finish, but I felt like restarting my modeling, with a fresh kit.
Choice fell on Revell’s 1971 Plymouth GTX, from the FAF movies. Haven’t seen the movie, but the car looks awesome, so I bought it.
Engine is more or less done, painted in rattle can Tamiya(orange), various acrylics metallics and Tamiya panel liner. Wiring done with cheap electronic wires. Undercarriage painted in a mix of rattle can and acrylics; bottom lightly dry brushed with gun metal; the muffler and exhaust shaded with a touch of oil paint.
Will be back soon, with some body work
