Thanks a lot! The front of the radiator is slightly curved, and it's great that with etching the indent follows this shape.

Feel free to do so... :lol:

Very kind, thank you! And no, I'm not getting sick - at least not caused by your "wows"... ;) , rather by cursing that god gave me much too thick fingers...

Today some of the "odds and sods" (google translation suggested this) were made, no "big things", but - as you know - everything must be made somewhen... :)

Thanks! A long time I was hesitating if I should make all this, or if I should only make a kind of "facade" of the suitcase fronts. Now I'm very relieved that I've done all the effort, and - to be honest - I'm a little bit sad that I don't have other cars with which I could repeat this... :cry:

... and they're so easy to make ;) I'm satisfied that you can indeed see something of all this when the car is ready. Meanwhile I thought that all the details couldn't be seen in the finished car...

Today - beside many other works - the seats got ready:

And the suitcases, already placed in the gaps:

And a sneak preview of the gauges:

To be honest, I've already done so, but unfortunately I've lost the key for the suitcases to show you... :D

That's what's really annoying: It's not so difficult to make such a dashboard, especially for the professionals of a manufacturer. So they must be a little bit lazy... 8-)

Thank you! I don't know why I haven't tried before, but this time I used lines of 0.05 mm, and it works great!

Your paint really looks excellent. I'm however not totally convinced about the contrast between paint and chromework, which is always a big issue for me. For that reason in fact I like vintage cars in black...

But I have to agree with Tom; the color looks REALLY good, but I think it may steel the thunder of the work you had with the metallic/chromed PE parts. Maybe it's just the lighting in that shot, but maybe (and that's maybe!) a darker shade on the body would make all the PE parts pop up more.

I guess I know what you mean. On one hand you should wait until I take photos under daylight, on the other hand - honestly - the car looks exactly the way I had in mind when studying the vintage pictures: Yes, the chrome parts don't separate entirely from the metallic painting, but the complete look of the car is so "lush & lavish" just because the chrome parts and the painting entwine each other. And don't be disappointed: It seems that I am going to build some further cars, and there will surely be some "black & chrome" ones which will meet your expectations better :)

Holy F#%$!!! Image

And about the paint. One thing is to make the model better looking, and another is making the model more accurate. So if you feel that tone makes the car more close to the real thing in your eyes, that's the tone you have to go with. And as I said, lighting on a shot plays a part. If you want to show the "real" color of a model, shoot it outdoors, preferably with in overcast sky.

That looks VERY impressive. Looking at your pictures on my tiny phone screen it looks almost as if it's an unpainted diecast...

Nice one Jean. I think the subtle approach works. Can't wait for the rad to go on and bring it to 'life'.
Cheers,

Outdoor??? :shock: With the risk that a naughty squirrel captures the car in an unattended moment and drives away? :lol:

Thank you! On one hand I am satisfied, but being an artist :oops: I of course see all the things which went completely wrong... and always hope that you won't see it...

I'm doing my varry best, Sir! ;)

And that's the status for today:

Licence plates, running boards and bonnet closures are added, headlights and the rod for the center headlight:

So the center headlight is still missing, and the windshield with wipers and so on. Will I complete it tomorrow :?:
