Thanks for your encouraging comments! :P

After sanding and a second coating with primer the body looks like this:

Image

The interior decoration elements are now gilded:

Image

The two main gauges are ready made:

Image

And the wheels got a cream-white ring (at least I suppose that it should be a similar colour):

Guess I am nuts, at least I don't worry anymore about these questions... :mrgreen:

Meanwhile I'm doing things that my camera seems to be unable to reproduce. There are tiny "Lincoln Zephyr" writings on the hubcaps (according to the photo on page 1), which are furthermore glossy lacquered now, but the reflections make it impossible to see... :(

Image

The steering wheel has thin dark red rims around, this is to be seen at the '46 model in its current condition, but I think it's suitable for the '41 as well:

Image

And the interior as well as the windscreen frame got the first cream-white painting:

Always a pleasure to see you do the small bits that make the end result such a masterpiece.

HELP AGAIN!!! Since yesterday photobucket seems to be unavailable... Can you upload photos to photobucket? By the way, is there an alternative for uploading photos?

I've long since given up on the bucket. The best alternative IMO is flickr.com where you get a free terabyte of storage.

Seems that some unpolite curses are sometimes helpful, photobucket now accepts my photos...

I regard this doing as a kind of late education, always trying to get closer to the desired result... On the other hand, believe me, it's also frustrating to fail in 50 %... :(

Meanwhile:

Yesterday I got my new airbrush, made by Harder & Steenbeck :P It's great!!!

Image

And here's the result of the first testing with the brown painting for the Lincoln:

Image

And the completely assembled wheels:

What do you do with images stored on PB?

Superb wheels, Jean. I can see the logo on this shot.
Have you advised your followers the final colour scheme?

I assumed from Jean's earlier posts on page one it will be painted as described ("brown and black")

Thanks for your advice! So this will be my first post with pictures by Flickr!

I guess they will stay there until the magnetic field of the earth will turn upside down... :D

Yep, that's right. So you can see the - meanwhile - two layers of brown paint, on the following picture with the template for the masking foil:

Image

The next two days the black paint will follow, cross your fingers that everything will work... :roll:

And the interior including the dashboard is going on, slowly...

Jean,
The dash looks fantastic but am most impressed with the light, airy look of the steering wheel.
BRAVO!
Another stunning project. :D
Cheers and Happy Collecting,
Steve

Just a quickie here.

Anyone using 'PB' image hosting should not move or remove pictures from their account, it will result in pictures disappearing from the forum.

Thanks Stewil, meanwhile I'm making the steering wheels solely with photo-etching, this way they become very thin and very round and accurate, better than all ready-made steering wheels you can get... ;)

Small tutorial for masking and two-tone-painting:

First design the desired shape on screen and print out in the right size:

Image

Stick with double-sided tape onto 0.5mm polystyrol card, cut out (with knife) and smoothen & shape the edges:

Image

Image

Put onto Bare Metal Foil and cut out the template:

Image

Stick BMF onto body, rub on the edges very carefully but very tightly:

Image

Airbrush second colour:

Image

And here another photo of the interior, unfortunately still missing one of the small gauges...:

Image

And the two RL-Logos (they say the rings of the original logos were taken from one of Raymond Loewys fridges... :lol: ):

...thank you! :P

Well, I think I've made my day :), the result of the three-tone painting turned out quite good:

Image

Image

There are some smaller blemishes, but that's nothing I'm afraid of... Nevertheless I have to wait 24 h until the painting has dried completely to retouch the concerning spots. Enjoy your sunday! :D

You're welcome! :P

Meanwhile two layers of clear lacquer have been applied, and I think it already looks quite well...:

Image

Tomorrow I will start polishing and then I will decide if a third layer is necessary or not.

Furthermore the windows are cut out of glass and glued into their frames:
