Post Buster Litton Panoramic Ford
This is a build I've been working off and on for a while now. It's a Modelhaus resin kit, with a full scratch built interior , and uses an AMT '49 Ford kit for completing.

I'm doing the build to resemble a Kustom back in the old days , where they were driven and not to much care was taken in the drive train. This is full plumed, wired ,and weathers .Enjoy.

Great detail on everything including the exhaust. That color is also fantastic, what color is it?

Damn Tim, looks like you've got some competition in the fine-detailed engine department!!...That is outstanding!! I've been planning the same fuel bowl set-up for the Apple...

...I saw this over on MCM, you used Kosutte Gin-San for the spots and I searched diligently for it here in the States with no results..However, I ordered it from HLJ and it will be on it's way to me in a couple of days..Looks like it blows Alclad outta the water.. If you can give me any specifics on it, I would appreciate it... LOVE this build!! -Shag

Best way to use Kosutte is over a cleared and polished alclad. When you clear alclad it takes away the reflective shine. That's ok, you just need a sliver base with fine metallic in it for the Kosutte base. You'll probably read every where to use a black base, but I've never been none for following instructions. :grin:

:rofl: :rofl: ..Nice!..

Got it about the Kosutte.... I had watched a video of a young man applying it to spoons, one bare white and one sprayed black. The white one had a transparency about it, and the black was better, but still wasn't quite right, so I was going to try an average silver hoping it would give me the right depth and luster...Thanks for the tips! I can't wait to get ahold of this stuff!! -Shag

That is one sweet custom. Do you have any tips on doing the roll & pleat interior panels? I have been wanting to do that with a couple of my builds.

I have this kit and Modelhaus resin kits are top notch all the way. I love the steering wheel & the whole project is striking. The HOK paints seem to lay down better on resin. Smoother if you will. You did yourself proud on this build. Hope you do well @ the Western Nat's. We will all be pulling for you. :thumbs: :thumbs:
