    Cool stuff.

    I just put the finishing touches on this Hubley '62 Ford wagon. Was a Country Sedan, now a Squire.

    Thanks, Most of them are 1/43rd, but quite a few hot wheels(1/64th) now too. To think, that showcase I've got used to be filled with nothing but 1/25th plastic that I'd built.
    WOW! Thats a Great Looking car...Love to have one of tham to drive. a real one that is.... Great Job!!!

    I built model cars from the late '70s until about 1993, then took a long break from them to build real cars. While waiting for a chassis to come back from the shop for a '37 Ford truck I'm building for a customer, I was looking at the old model collection and focused on the plain white Country Sedan model. I'd looked at it before over the last 20 or so years, wondering what to do with it. I came close to selling it because it was so plain and uninteresting, and then I spotted the Country Squire decal set put out by Red Bear Graphics. It became obvious what to do with that car, build a slammed mild custom Squire on 22's.

    For the paint, I wanted a color that was retro and current at the same time, so I mixed up some House of Color candy green and yellow, shot it on with an airbrush over a gold base, and topped it off with a clear coat with a pinch of gold pearl in the clear. I then used a model car sanding kit called the Millenium 2000 system, basically a rubber block with sanding cloths up to 12,000 grit, before waxing it with The Treatment model car wax for the high gloss finish. It really pops in the sunlight, this pic shows the color a little better.

    I'm not a pro photog, that's all done with a 3 year old Olympus 5 megapixel camera that has a decent macro lens, nothing special but it does the job.

    20 years in the making! Funny how some projects just have to stand still for the right moment. Super job!

    5 Megapixels eh? Awesome pictures. Thanks for the info.
