Other than the fact that the turn signals aren't painted,this very realistic. You did an excellent job on this! I have a 1/25 scale '57 Chevy that I started,but I never finished it,because the airbrush I have is a $10.00 P.O.S. that I bought from Harbour Frieght. I thought it was good enough until I used once. Any way,I used guitar strings for my brake lines,and master scale brake rotors made from aluminum. I have some stretched sprue about 0.1" thick that I might wrap rest of the brake,and emergency brake to make it look more realistic. Maybe I'll post pictures of it today.

Once again this looks great! Thanks for sharing this with us. ~ the other Chris

Thanks! The turn signals are actually done in a white wash to replicate the frosted clear look of the 1:1, they just disappear in that much sunlight. I did forget to correct the number of bars from the SS to the standard, though, which also makes the paint harder to see.

The '57 sound great, please do post photos.

Sometimes the cheap airbrushes are OK, but only for certain applications - I have an entry-level Testors brush that works great for spraying Future.
