ADDED BY ADMIN- This thread is now a sticky. If you post a model project in primer that has non TRaKable parts it will be removed. Please don't use this thread as a way to weesle in your other interests. Please don't say "the wheels are only for mockup".....it's not gonna slide!
I figured it would be neat to start a primer thread here. I enjoy seeing 'under construction primer' builds as much as finished/painted ones. And, I am sure we all have more projects that never made it past the primer stage than we do finished ones; so it will give others a chance (and possibly some inspiration) to see what you've got hiding! The only thing I think we should do is limit the number of photos to 3 per model. But, it's o.k. to post as many primered projects as you got lined up.........as long as it isn't 20 out of the box bodies just out of the booth when you went on a 'production run'! LOL!

Cool! LOL! I've often thought of it; but either forget, get distracted and log off before starting the thread; or what have you. I'm sure you've got some stuff to post up! I don't mind anyone posting a few primer shots of builds that are now finished either.

Great projects Stu!
My intent was for this to become a 'sticky'; and stay at the top of page 1.
And, I'm sorry to say that almost none of my projects get finished. The Malco Vette was sold to a close friend since it was his 'childhood' favorite; and he was going to finish it. He got it painted candy apple red; but ran into issues; and had to strip it. I don't recall if he got it painted a second time or not. I have a photo of it after he painted it the first time; but don't want to post it here. The '33 Willys pickup got sold off; but I have every intention of restarting that project. I still have the separate doors that I made to look like old weathered and worn lacquer! LOL! The only part that sucks is that I will have to start all over scratch building the bed from sheet aluminum.
This is a good spot to drop a quick note or ask for help. If you are in a bad mood, this isn't the right spot to drop feelings. Thanks for understanding!
RodBurNeR: omg condensing years of model supply, tools and paints into one three drawer cabinet is tough! just the common use stuff, rest will be in boxes in a closet unless needed. this is rough lol

krassandbernie: You guys missing the other posts I've made in the 'resin' section? I see a couple of you have spotted the Fordor sedan builds by customers I posted; but missed the others.

superflekmoonbird: Thanks Paul...they look good. Air temp may be part of it...for comparison some rattle cans (Tamiya) mention 50 degree F and above, Testors Lacquer says 70 degrees..
