Estava eu já quase a subir as escadas do recinto da feira da vandoma, com um ar de criança amuada por não ter encontrado nada que me enchesse a alma, quando passei por um canto e vi esta preciosidade abandonada à minha espera. 1 EURO? não posso acreditar! pensei de seguida: pronto, não me vão servir! e não é que serviram? THE KID IS HAPPY!
I couldn't believe when i saw this treasure waiting for me in the local market ( second hand goods) .
I couldn't believe too when the seller told me the price: 1 euro! i thought: this will not fit in my foot - but i was wrong! They are perfect!
So from last time, I'm gearing up to paint a 1:25 66' Olds "Clean Build". And what could be more clean then a snarky candy paint job?
My trial of using a metallic paint (in this case Krylon Metallic Gold), covered by acrylic color coats, is a disaster. The paint did not spread correctly and resulted in a splotchy finish....
I tried a variation of this a second test body, this time the psuedo-metal finish was covered with clear "acryl red" from Testors, shot with an external mix airbrush at 20 or so psi--same results--everything beads up, nothing spreads, and it looks awful.
Back to the drawing board.
In the meantime, final prep work is going on on the body. I am down to little dings and nicks here and there......
....circling problem spots then trying to correct them with superglue and some careful sanding and filing.
As long as the CA glue is out: while waiting for things to dry I continue to work on an "Orange Crate" body; I have no idea what this might be used for some day, but it's always fun to chop some top. See ya next time!
É difícil resistir a qualquer sapato minimamente agradável à vista, ainda mais quando eles são bem altos e compensados. A zara versão on-line só me tem feito chorar por mais e por mais... welcome my new perfect high-heel!!
