A quick OOB to remove one more from my stash, started it because the green eclipse was to be a gift for someone and in case it went wrong on the decals I wanted a back up.

Hope it will get a steering wheel. Vettes never did it for me, but as models they're as good as any other, sometimes better.

It's a good start and nice paint. What's your plan for the wheels?

Thanks Max

Not sure about the wheels, whether to leave the standard ones on or go for something different.

BMF should be here on Tuesday so I can carry on the build then

Looks good Ash, just not sure about the glossy interior.

Going to dull coat it Al

You can use hair spray for that cant you?

heap hairspray gives a dull sheen Ash, so might look OK.

Never tried hair spray for a flat/satin finish Ash.

I'm interested in seeing your result.

That's a nice body shine Ash. Is that the kind of finish your fancy pants airbrushes give you?
Smart work.

No D my airbrush is out of commission until I get a spray booth.. The paint was £1 gloss black from home bargains with their £1 primer underneath.. Had no polishing either yet.. Just spray and leave to dry.

The mini I did was just spray on too.. I don't polish the models as the paint tends to shine quite nicely without. Mini was Tamiya spray.

First time at using BMF, did the a pillars and the edge of the roof above the screen and the side trims at the base. Tried the stingray badges on the side bit came out terrible so I pulled it off again.

Looking good Ash. I also find that BMF gets harder to use the smaller the part you're trying to apply it to.

That's looking good Ash. BMF can be intimidating the first few times and unless you have a well embossed and easy shape it's nearly impossible to do badges. Keep it up!
