Thanks again Lads Wink


With Brian making up flyers to promote this Forum I thought I'd use my Facebook page as well,
I put these photos on my Facebook page and also posted a link to the Forum to try and get some new members to sign up,




Here's the photos below showing how to strip decals + a tricky dash conversion,




Decal Removal

The decals were removed using sellotape pressed on to the model with a cotton bud,
The tampo was removed using cellulose thinners, the harder bits on the front bumper were touched up,
I also tided up the black round the windows  








Dash Conversion

The pod on the dash was cut off then the top of the dash sanded with 240 grade paper,
I then glued the pod on to the right hand side and painted the top of the dash + added a few blobs of paint for a bit of detail

That's more like it, Billy. Pay attention and stop distracting everyone else in class.  tongue  You'll have to go to the head teacher if you don't behave!!  geek 

Right Colin, that's got Billy sorted out and now back to the lesson....... I've lost my place now!

I've finally made a start on this Chevette kit after having it out of the box about 10 times!!
The shell needed a lot of work to clean it up before I could paint it + the floor pan is scrap,
It's twisted too much to be able to use it so I've had to use a Sunbeam model for parts,

I cut and trimmed the floor pan from the Sunbeam to fit into the Chevette shell so the wheels were center in the arches,
I was also be able to use the interior from the Sunbeam and with a wee bit of trimming I got the cage to fit as the kit didn't come with a cage,
The wheels that came with the kit were not the best looking so I used the wheels off a spare TR7 model I had sitting here,
This worked out well as the rear wheels are wider than the fronts and helps the over all look of this model,

Now that all the parts are trimmed, test fitted and the model is painted I can move on to doing the decals.... at last lol


Here's a few photos of how its looking so far,

Great going, Colin.

I can understand why you changed the wheels over! The TR7 ones are so much better.

An interesting build. Keep us posted.

... better than changing very dirty nappies, eh Billy?  Razz 

I can remember well the sinking feeling when I'd changed the nappies of one of my two only for them to go purple and push another one out!  Evil or Very Mad  Agh!

Mind you, I can also remember having to stand in the corner too. Sometimes my wife lets me sit on the sofa, though, so it's not all bad!  jocolor
