Permalink  
 


have the Kit below - had it for years

I have no clue what to paint it so I haven't bothered... 

 

BUT I got's the urge to ..do , something as I'm bored and it's cold out

sky blue , pale yellow , coral and any shade of booger or up chuck are out of consideration..

thank you for your input

 

IT may be small but I might have a build thread here..lol

Funny you mention this cause I dug out some of my old kits and went with the Nomad as well
The chasis is the gasser the colour is kandy red . Decals to follow if I can find a good sheet.
The decals don't age as well as the plastic. So many cool colours available now. The local hardware
all have some wild new artsy flats and some really cool gloses. Have fun and don't snif the glue. Ed

Wait .. I forgot
my favorites are all shades of royal, guardsman (ford) blue through gunmetal blue, gray, or silver...

so I suppose I need a secondary colour for a 55 nomad two tone job

yeah I know it's a 56 ...

no wait .. I don't need a good secondary colour ...
no, no

I need a KICK AZZ colour.....'cause whatever  ^"that"^  is ... it sucks

yeah , that old orange paint on that nomad was sweet and gave me the craving to build this when I saw it

maybe yellow ? ..but with no black - way to much house dust .. black wouldn't even get finished before it looks old

or a chrome green ,, nice and bright but not to light a shade
-in a rattle can that may be hard to find

I SOoo miss the old canadian tire store at mccowan rd and sheppard ave with it's mile long touch up paint section

man .. that WAS awesome in it's day as a model builder

I can lay down some really nice gold paint jobs too - seems a colour that works well for me

lol
actually I should get some glue and assemble my 29 ford truck - phone booth style
it's finished except needing assembly and a drivetrain from a 2.3 turbo mustang SVO kit I never got around to buying...THE truck I'd like to build for real actually ...

it's the old Revel kit from the 60's I suppose ..reissued in the 80's , paint came out so nice a buddy swore I didn't paint it

I hadda show him the box and the bits left over before he realized he wasn't looking at metallic gold plastic
LOL

I paint so thin with a rattle can the swirl marks in the plastic show through my primer and the first or second coat of colour too ...USUALLY

the Revel anglia is an awesome kit too
it's small so adding details can get to the OCD easily - mine probably weighed 3-4 pounds before it exploded when I accidentally dropped it on the basement floor

yeah ..missed the carpet ..

maybe yeah

found a new jeep on "the lot" yesterday .. nice chrome green colour ..might be able to find a can of that easy enough

white top..white & "orange saddle" interior

 

appears there may be 3 greens

BMW has inserts similar colour to what I'm thinking in a white 55 interior

they give you a nomad with an optional set of chromed centerline style wheels
so there's not much I can really do except slam & rake it "just right"

 

it may have a set of lake pipes but I'm not sure how long ..I gotta dig the kit out to start yet lol

I need to put my 29 model A truck together too

 

man ..I gotta find some place just to buy supplies now .. been YEARS since the shop I went to closed (collectors lane if anyone remembers Bill)
