Haha!

Michael, you'll make a great detective!

I sourced the "car" colors locally:



Those are really crazy colors, even the manufacturer couldn't found a name for them. It looks like they were nominated by an online random word picker. The dark blue is after school bay blazer, the dark red is wicked and the dark green is stylenomics (sic!)

But my favorite is the beige for not to be Christine: so many clowins... so little time Go figure!

Very nice Gabriel!
Though I don't see too many "car" colours in that paint collection, unless you're going for a camo effect

cheers

Hi, guys!

I have noticed that my stash lacking seriously civilian vehicles and the weight of today's shipment went to Tamiya and to 1/24 scale.

The much needed Porsche 959 for the Porsche campaign.


I like the simple yet liquid shapes of this Mazda Eunos Roadster. I bought it as "sparing partner" for testng clear coats


I was salivating for this kit since its release, some three years ago. I decided I cannot wait any longer Mercedes Benz 300 SL


White finishes are haunting me and I bought another "test subject". No, it's not going to be Christine


Together with those, a bunch of preparation / finishing products:


Cheers!
Gabriel

Gabriel: Yeah, I think it's pretty cool. Not quite sure, what to do with it yet. I Won't be painting it movie style, that's for sure.

And it's an old level 4 from Revell! Jesper, you have a flair of your own when picking kits. I think I need an acquisitions manager as good as you LOL! Nice Torino.
Cheers!

Bummer! forgot to buy maroon paint, for my Ford T build, so I had to make a new order. Well can't buy paint without buying a kit, so...

Nice pickup-up Jesper, I've never seen that kit before. I look forward to seeing what you do with it.

Jesper, I don't know how you find the '60s "girls", but I know I like this one! Great!

Cheers!

Well, just needed a little paint, but buying a little paint on-line is impossible. Receiving a little package with 3 small bottles of paint, is a no go, so I had to order a kit as well

Jesper, hands up! I'm robbing you! You've hit a gold vein there, bud! Brilliant!

Damian, I just bought an Admiral Cabrio from ICM in 1/24. Just give me a pretext!

Cheers, guys!

Very nice additions there Jesper, they will make a stunning display!

Maybe it's time for a '30s group build?

The builds should prove interesting. I was messing around with the Chevrolet body yesterday, and it seems to fit well on the Revell chassis.
