At first, I was hesitant to build this metal kit for my friend Vic.
But eventually, I decided to give it a try. Its a little bit different from my usual
1:64 diecast that I regularly build. More parts and bigger body panels.
Its a 70's Rolls Royce Silver Shadow by RAE hand built model company
and all parts are done in metal, it weights almost a ton!!!
and heres what I did with the Rolls Royce.
some detailed painting in the interior...
2 coats of metallic paint and 2 coats of top coat plus
a little wet sanding and buffing for the body.
some minor but important details like door handles
that tested my tweezer handling capabilities hehehe!
and here it is...
I've learned a lot from this experience and one thing
is that metal kits, specially the "white metal" ones
are very soft and sensitive, you can even leave a mark
using your fingernail.
