Hi all,

Well, I have finally managed to finish this, so here are some finished photos...: -









I thought I would try something different, I painted a yellow base colour (sorry forgot to take some work-in-progress photos), I had some white netting from some garlic and placed it on top and then sprayed some black on top and then I brushed some Vallejo gloss varnish to finish it, I know it's not great and after it had dried it still had brush line, so I guess I should have sprayed the varnish rather than brushed it, lesson lean't for next time though, I also used some fine black tape, it's the stuff they use on women's nails, I got it with the nail sander I bought...





I cut up and used a plastic plate for the dimple effect on the step...





Please let me know what you think, both good and bad...

Thank you for looking...

Andy...

I think it's a grand idea that is fairly well done. The lace Effect really is a good idea and looks good. Nice Build!!!!!

I like the design and the whole idea as it's so off the wall, the overall white paint job looks very swish.

The netting idea is stolen and locked away in my brain for future reference, it looks great.

for me, the only improvement would be if there was a way to get some decals to fit in the instrument panel showing dials etc, saying that there's a lot of raised detail there that would need to be flattened, its a shame its not detailed more so you could pick it out.

overall, there's only a few marks lost for stuff that ain't your fault!!  

Take this with a pinch of salt though Andy, coz i'm on a massive learning curve with cars!!

Thank you both, it's very much appreciated, thank you...

Hi Colin,

Many thanks Sir, it wasn't until a few days after I stuck the steering wheel on that I realised I had messed up and wouldn't be able to pint the dash properly, the other thing I was going to do was to try and make some seat belts harnesses up and attach them to the seats before I stuck them in, but, forgot...

I sorted borrowed your idea with the dimpled bit, but didn't have any of the stuff you used so used the plastic plate instead...

Once again, many thanks both...

Andy...

I this idea very much, nice added details Andy, I like the net/lace graphic look. Looks like you were working in a dust storm though.

Am still waiting for those flying cars. When they perfect self driving cars, that may be as good. Nice creative work for sure, thanx!
