Happy New Year! This is the new place.
Thanks Sherrel, Glad you like it. Unfortunately, I was not very fortunate with the dome lounge. Something happened to the paint while baking the touch up. I took it out and the other cross member/coupler pad was loose, and the paint on both sides lifted. I was able to scrape it off with my fingernail. The whole thing will have to be stripped and repainted. The thing that irritated me was that the SP Passenger car decals were out of production Champ sets and I used up what I had left. I had to go to e-Bay to get replacements, and they weren't cheap! I've never had this happen before. I bake below the boiling point of water, so I'm not sure what happened here.ALAN - If I could spell it, I would say that the
strippingstriping is Supercalifragilistic!
Very nice work - a real masterpiece. Here's hoping that the resolder work did not mess up the aforementioned car? The paint and striping is really beautiful - a 10++!
P.S. The wet towel on the body shifted my mind into overdrive .. lol
Nope, there is no metal showing. What you're seeing is daylight orange under the daylight red. it's weird because I bake after each coat.Uggh, Ouch, and Crap! You have a real bailiwick there! I forget - Did you use a primer beforehand? Almost looks as if the metal was not clean?
