Another month gone, another model done! This time a Revell 66 El Camino. I ended up building it box stock except for the wheels (from the AMT 69 Chevelle) and the wheels (from my scrap box, no idea where they came from?). A tiny bit of photo etch was used, for the door locks, for instance.
Beyond that? Nothing new to report here. This was another pretty easy build, a good kit that went together easily.
I'm trying, as always to keep things clean, and to make the most of the little time I have to build these days. I could have spent more time on the photo lighting, but, there you go.
Not much to say, except, after 10 years now of being back in the hobby, my skills I feel have improved a bit. This was a fun build and came out pretty clean.
The key it seems is to be patient. That's the center of success in this hobby: Extremely patient. Silly patient. Simple stuff: Always scrape the paint off, and get down to "bare plastic", before the glue goes on. Try to line things up before the glue dries. And: Try to let one assembly dry before trying to stick on the next thing.
So what next? Back to the 69 Chevelle I guess, which, if nothing else, will be more challenging. I guess?
