Just wondering, is anyone building anything? I have a few projects but haven't been in my hobby room for some time now. I want to get back to it, Santa just brought me a 1/24th scale 57 Chevy 2 sedan with a flip front end.
I want to start it this coming week (I hope). I also got a 55 Chevy Street Machine. :thumbsup:
Please let me know what your building.

Thanks
Rick

Hey Rick, I'm building now. I'm working on completing my Nismo S-tune collection. Car 2 is being worked on right now.
The R33 Skyline Nismo S-Tune. Hope to have it finished by months end. Bang on it all day when I get my days off.
Also have a Ferrari F430 Challenge car I'm slowly whittling away.
Hoping to work on a military subject for the local IPMS show in March.
Able to post pictures? Love to see what you're doing.

I haven't built a car kit in a long time, but right now I'm working on a Deal's Wheels "Van" kit (if that counts). I never liked the figure that comes with the kit so I'm modifying it a bit, but I've reached a sticking point so I'll have to wait for inspiration to strike before I continue. :p

Oh, I most definitely will! It'll probably be a while though--my bad back prevents me from sitting or standing for long periods of time, so I'm a rather slow modeler these days. But when it's finished, you'se guys will be among the first to see it. :thumbsup:

Think of **** Jagger........
Paint it Black.

Your always better off painting it.
even if you just get a dupicolor shaker can and spray it, it will be better off for it.

I would agree with Chuck.
However, I have seen some great unpainted kits that were just a you suggested. IF the body is swirl free and pretty nice for black kit plastic I would at least give it a try on an inconspicuous spot of the car and see how it looks. Maybe the bottom of passenger side body.
If it is a high gloss injected body it should turn out o.k.
Never hurts to try and see. If it doesn't work you simply primer and paint.

Great! I have a '65 El Camino sitting, with a '65 Chevelle and a '65 Chevelle station wagon. one of these days I'll open them up and build a drag team.
I've heard the '72 Hurst / Olds is pretty sweet.
The '72 Corvette sounds interesting, is it an old MPC Annual?

The hurst/olds kit is just awesome! Clean and sharp, very little flash and excellent details. The best that I've seen in some time. The 72 corvette is a revell I believe, I got another off of evil bay for spare parts.
