I´m currently building the ´67 Shelby GT500 called "Eleanor" from the movie "gone in 60 seconds" with Nicolas Cage. Thought I´d share it with you.
For this build I use a Scaleproduction resin transkit and an AMT GT350 as a parts donor. Here you can see what´s included in the transkit.
This is the parts donor kit from AMT.
After I figured out the right stance of the car, the body was primered and a coat of gloss black was airbrushed for the black stripes.
After the black was dry, the stripes were masked with Tamiya masking tape and then a few very thin coats of Tamiya light-gunmetal found its way on the body. The masking tape was then removed without causing any damages.
Here is a little mock-up after the paint has dried over night. The colors came out pretty good in my opinion.
When the body has dried for some days, several coats of gloss clear will be applied. Then the whole package will be carefully wet-sanded with 6000-12000 grit micro mesh to get a super-smooth surface (that was also done between each coat of the colors to avoid orange peel). After that the body will be polished. Meanwhile I´ll focus on the wheels, engine and interior.
Hope to have an update soon. Thanks for looking.
