The Caddy looks like the Batmobile I know, but it looks nice.
The Impala has finally been done in dark wine red like I wanted, with a white roof. Both will be finished within the week most likey so keep an eye out if Lowriders tickle your fancy.
Soon I will be doing a `39 Chevy Delivery Bomb, old school style. Aswell as finishing my Monte Carlo and after that I am on a break until some models arrive, which I will be building a Ranchero Lowrider from and a few others, I will get a chrome 283 Chevy engine that I want to put in a 65 Impala SS or 67 Impala SS kit, has anyone got any offers for some?
Anyway on to the pictures!

Someone should tell Igor that the quick copy bar for "Share this photo on the message boards" doesn't work with '-med.' in it :rolleyes:

Awesome work, Purpura. Black is the hardest colour to work with, but you've done an excellent job. The candy red is a dazzler. Can't wait to see em in one piece! :smokin:

Thanks homie, I still don't use undercoat, clear coat, wax or compund either. I dont want to spend even more money on my models then I already do.
That red is the Tamiya Red Mica (TS-39) over a Tamiya Light Gunmetal base. I found that with metallic colours I use another metallic colour as a base and it comes out looking metal-flake.

Both looking good - look forward to seeing them completed

love the paint jobs on both

They both look nice! I prefer the Impala though... :icon16:
You should make a hoppin' diorama :iceslolan

Thanks for the replies.
That black was just straight out of a Tamiya can with no clear or polishing, looks very nice, I'm getting good results with my paints now. You should see the 37 Ford Coupe I sprayed italian red, no undercoat etc and you can see your reflection in every panel :sunglasse:
I just did all thechrome work on the Impala, I might end up finishing it within 2 days

Looks great. I love that red paint job. It kind of reminds me of my dad's candy apple red paint job.

I like! Has anyone ever played "Twisted Metal"? Delujo should make "Thumper" the pink/white Impala lowrider, with machineguns and a flamethrower!! :evillol:

Thay cadilliac is nice, although lowriders arent my style. I dunno if you've ever seen it, but Polar Lights released the Ghost Busters 1958 Cadilliac ambulance. I might have to pick it up sometime (saw that kit in SAE painted in orange with ghost flames, and those 20+" Torq Thrusts)
10-26-2003, 09:37 PM
sweet, both are awesome.

Thanks people, I'm going to do a Ranchero and 40 Ford rag bomb style soon so I got something interesting to add to my collection. I've decalled and masked/trim painted the 63, it's nearly finished, within 3 days i'll get the thread up.
