1/24 Revell / Monogram Scarab, Done, Finito, Finished.

October 26, 2014 · in Uncategorized · · 16 · 2.3K

I built this years ago and it was a glue bomb. I wanted to go back and give her another try. There is still a few woogies here and there, but I am happy with the results. The only modification I made was to add a top half of a engine under the intake vents behind the driver. And seat belts. I think it adds a little depth to the model.. A simple inexpensive kit, but I really enjoyed this one. Painted with Tamiya rattle cans. I hope you like.

  4. Glad to see this brought back to life Steve. What did you use for a base coat under the yellow?
    Well done.

  5. Thanks Al, It was sprayed directly over the blue. Not as cool as your Delahaye. But I'd get you in the corners. What is it about blue cars?
    Thanks for the nice words.

  9. Now that IS eye candy Steve. Well done!
