Looks really good. I think there is a lot of competition comming from that 65 fastback. Goodluck.

I like it. I really like how you made it look like it's already been 4xing with all the mud splattered about :cool


Ok, I was looking at the last picture, and a buddy here at work came up and asked me if I was buying it. I was like "no......", but he said yea I was and that I was just looking at it a minute ago. He didn't realize it was a model

Yea, I think I entered in the wrong month.. I've seen ALL those cars/or know the people who built them..

(The guy with that 65 Mustang beat me by one position [I think, I'm not quite sure, either that, or it was VERY close] in an international contest.. )

I was looking through the entry book for this year's county fair, and there's a category for model cars and trucks, so I figured I'd finally put together my Revell '92 Super Coupe. Anyone have any tips on making them look really good? I know a bunch of you guys have done this model, can you post some pics?

Here's my tips:
-Use automotive grade paints. Dont use Testors spray paint. Its crap. I use Dupli-Color laquer rattle cans. The real "pros" use paint guns, and use HOK Paints (REALLY F-ING Expensive). You can pick up Dupli-Color at Wal-Mart. For prep, I normally LIGHTLY sand the body with 320 dry sanding before ANY Paint. Then I apply Dupi-Color Laquer Filler Primer. Then I apply various coats of paint. Then I apply Dupli-Color Clear Coat Laquer. After its dried thoroughly, wet sand it with 1000 grit, untill ALL orange peel is gone, then apply 2-3 coats of 3M Rubbing Compound. After that, apply 1-2 coats of Mothers (Maybe Zaino???) wax..

-Get rid of "mold lines" before painting. What are mold lines? Tiny lines of plastic where the mold's joined. Basically, you'll see lines where there anrent supposed to be any, get rid of 'em

1) Do you spray paint all the parts?
2) I asked this in your other thread about offering to build models of real 'birds, but how could I build/find a 3.8 N/A intake, and subsequently LXify an SC model? Not to take away your business, I've just been wondering this ever since I bought this off eBay...
3) Is there a point where too much paint will hide the body lines molded onto the car?
4) Did you hit any difficult parts building the SC model?

I spray primer EVERYTHING. I spray painted the body, bumpers, frame, and the interior. Everything else I used Testors Acrylic Brush Paint

No one I know offers parts to build LX parts. You'll have to custom build 'em..

Yes.

Yes. The front and rear suspension. The rear suspension ride height is wrong, and it can look "crooked" (wheels not lined up in fenders) The front suspension can give different off-sets and funny cambers.

Ok, picked up the '92 Cougar XR-7 Lowrider 3 'n 1 Revell kit so I can whittle a 5.0 intake into a N/A 3.8 intake. Has anyone already done this?
