OK, I am not really computer savvy......I created a Fotki account as suggested, but I can't drag & drop the pictures from my desktop as it asks me to.....no matter what I try. What am I doing wrong???

You want to find the "BB Code" for your picture, and copy that to your post. I don't know Fotki, but try right clicking or look for a menu.

I first read that like you were going to mask the decals then paint primer and blue and thought that that sounds challenging.

I re-read it and I think I know what you're going to do. It does make sense for the decals.

I'm making great strides, but haven't applied any paint yet. The Revell kit is really fitting well!
Tonight I'll begin the body painting. The plan is to paint gloss white for the lighter decals, then mask around those shapes to follow with gray primer and the navy blue final color, then unmask and decal it up.

I went with the 73 Pct because that was my favorite Uniform Command photo P1100163_zpsdkwbsgvf.jpg photo P1100161_zpswjnqoipd_1.jpg
So considering the paint issue that I had Im ok with the results
Is there a gallery for this Group build??

I am moved in to my new house, and got most of the boxes unpacked and a few other projects out of the way, and I'm ready to jump into this group build!
Here's my starting photo! These are internet photos, Chimneyville decals, and the Revell kit.
Last night I threw the engine together, and hoping to hit it hard tonight again!
(I don't intend to paint the engine-- I've never had anyone look under the hood of my cars, and if I paint it black with the chassis and underside, that should do it. Is this an entirely new conversation, or has there been discussion of that before?)

That is if tinbanger approves of this project. If it is not approved or if I realize it's way beyond my skill level, then I will build* Rosco's car OOB.

Welcome to the group build!

Go for it!

I like that color scheme a lot.

Arthur,

You need to post the IMG link codes from a photo hosting site like Photobucket or Fokti. That's the easiest way.

Very cool car choice and paint scheme, Sal. I'm glad you got through the orange-peel paint problem.

Hi

Ugh, I've had that happen. I had this issue using a Tamiya spray bomb over a primer.

Hope you can fix it.

Tom

Sal,

The engine & frame look great. Can't say as I've ever seen that reaction with paint before. That really sucks.
