From album Baby Smurf by CorvairJim
I had to do a lot of intense chrome foil work on this one. The edges of the beltline trim were molded in very faintly, so I had to etch them into the plastic with an X-Acto knfe before I painted the body so that the paint wouldn't fill them in entirely.

Many thanks to all my friends who appreciate the work that goes into my models. Yes, it can be work, but it's work I enjoy. Truly a labor of love, especially in cases like this where I'm replicating a car I used to own.
