    AMT 1991 Silverado 454 SS-Interior Progress-01/31

    Thanks guys. Gaz: Sometimes I do but it's mostly on military builds. This one here is going to be built as what's known as a "Day 2" build. That is, mods that were done on the second day of ownership. On this one it's just going to be wheels that get upgraded. Everything else is as it came from the factory. No dirt on the carpets of a vehicle that new. Ok gang. I've got the interior tub pretty much done except for the foot pedals. I really like this photo as it shows the color contrast on the seats very well. I finished up the passengers seat this morning with the color contrast. I left the pleated part of the seat the original color that I painted it and used a mixture of red with a little black ground up pastel and dry brushed it onto smooth parts of the seat to slightly darken the color tone for a subtle yet highly noticeable contrast. I was surprised with the results. Everything is adhered into place. The door handle/ switch bezels and all details have been painted here and I thought I'd add a Coke to the cup holder. I mean....why not? I'm smilin' so why not have a Coke to go with it?

    AMT 1991 Silverado 454 SS-Interior Progress-01/31

    Just to catch up to where I'm currently at with this build as of this morning.... I've been working on the color tones and surface textures with the differences in the seat fabric, carpet and on the door panels by using different colored pastels. You can see the contrasting colors on the seat between the weaved and the smooth sections of the drivers seat. That seat will directly contrast the passengers side seat which hasn't been touched up yet. I've got the door handle/ switch bezel painted but still have to fill in the details on those and then get the foot pedals taken care of. Progress so far:

    I had initially primed the interior pieces to include the tub. I was looking at it even with the ejector pin marks on the floor and thinking to myself, "Yeah.....that's gonna......no....no it aint gonna work!!" The ejector pin mark, even though it's in a terrible place I can actually deal with. More on that in a minute. That chintzy brake and accelerator pedal just isn't gonna do at all. So ………...I put my thinkin' cap on.. I found another floorboard from a parts kit that I've got in the stash and cut the whole section out of this floor board. Then I cut a section out from the parts donor. Then the replacement piece was glued into place. We'll be using some PE pedals to have a little more true to scale and true to references look. Now to address those disgusting ejector pin marks. Those...…..will be covered up by these floor mats that I acquired which just came in the mail a couple of days ago.

    Ya know.....this build is truly deserving of the comments and praise that it's getting. I simply cannot believe that on "the other" forum that there hasn't been at the very least at least "thumbs up" given after two days of the finish of this beautiful aircraft being posted. Hell some pointers or critique would've done ..............but post something. I mean...........damn! Enough of my rant. This is , without a doubt, one of the best P-40's I've seen built yet.

    I have always been scared to do this kind of stuff in modeling. Looks like you have quite the handle on this despite it not being "the usual" for you.

    I'll be going with black Kevin. All of these were black exterior with a red interior.
