Title: AAR Corvette
Post by: Belugawrx on Fri Mar, 09, 2018, 12:15:PM
Last year, the folks over at modelcarsmag.com, voted my 2017 entry,... winner.

So I needed to find something for this years build....
Inline engine and the appearance of being road legal, the only stipulations to enter...
I had a couple of these Revell/Monogram Corvettes lying around giving up spare parts....

An ordinary, everyday inline 6, just wasn't enough so I added another 2 cylinders to it...

Then all hell broke loose when this gold guy showed up with trainable bots

I found some old circuit boards for the interior panels...

Yes
Indeed 
like a diorama orchestrated by a sentient See&SayTM

Do the bots bathe ?

I need to pick up a couple of those bots to help out with the farm equipment maintenance. 

That's going to look pretty mean in the digital camo, though!

Never seen that on my builds

Get to know the system that makes it possible to play in a professional manner and have information that can be used immediately.

Post by: urumomo on Thu Jun, 14, 2018, 12:34:AM
You still see the red ?
Doesn't show here   ,,, at least as far as I can tell   :-\
Title: Re: AAR Corvette
Post by: Belugawrx on Thu Jun, 21, 2018, 12:02:AM
Anyway,..lots of coats later and I hit it with clear to test and it came up again,...
So I did this...
(https://i.imgur.com/AqdIEcu.jpg)
I'm sure if I hit that with clear right now,...it would blush...grr
The third digicam colour did not show well, so I mixed up some Tamiya X-25 Clear Green 2:1 to Tamiya X-20A Thinner and airbrushed 3 light coats at 18 - 20 psi thru my,...Iwata NEO...get it...
