So I got the plastic polishing kit today. Its from 3M and designed for clear plastic headlight covers. After an hour with it, the windows aren't perfectly clear, but clear enough that you can see through them, so I call it good enough.

So the car is completely together. 20210713_183625.jpg 20210713_183633.jpg 20210713_183641.jpg 20210713_184237.jpg

If it had them I would do that! Zoe had that idea the other day, but I had no clue how I'd make side windows. Wonder if I could find in scale figures for it....

Blargh... lookin on Ebay for 1/25 figures. Wanted to surprise my girl by finding one that looked like her and painting it up to go with the car. Have found a couple that do looka fair amount like her, at least facially... but all are 1/24.:(

That's only a 4% difference .
a 6 foot person would scale to about 6 foot 3 ( an extra 1/8 inch taller in 1/24 scale ) as an example .
Not really an issue .

So the 1/24 figure I wanted to get and paint up as my GF is here. Got it Thursday. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get it painted before today, but whatever. She still loves it.

So I have spent the last hour doing the main colors. The hair is painted as she currently has her hair dyed(she changes her hair color waay to much, like every couple months). 20210725_205201.jpg

Btw the skin color is way off right now, I decided to use the darkest shading color for the base given the size of the figure, and that was clearly a mistake. The actual flesh tone is now gone take a ton of coats to cover right.

Still not bad just say there from Southern California inland where they tan. Lol, I see you like to do the dew. Use to drink a lot myself should try to stick with original with real sugar just read HFCS causes you retain more fat and glucose. Real sugar breaks down more easily and is turned into energy. Have you tried the other flavores code red and orange and others I think they said there was twenty flavores but the ones at Taco Bell are custom flavores that are a mix of the commercially sold flavores.
