Looks like I haven't posted anything in this thread even if I really like Primer Pics. Well, only one that I have is this '60 Plymouth Fury as I usually don't do many mock ups when the body is in Primer - I usually try to make everything fit well before shooting any paint on bodies. But here is the Fury. Those bumpers must be shot with Alclad next.
Oh I almost forgot this one - a Monogram '55 Chevy Bel Air.
I'm not mistaken, those are the front wheels for MPC's "Winged Express" Fuel altered roadster. They were sold separately, after it was noticed, that RC2 (NOT to be confused with the current owners, Round 2) messed up, and only included the outer halves of the 12-spoke wheels from the Bantam Blast (shared tooling) in the most recent reissue of the Winged express. The wheels are supposed to resemble Halibrand spindlemount wheels, but the centers and proportions do leave a bit to be desired.
Enough with the wheel-bashing... Let's all take a moment to appreciate the major work, Niko has put into deepening all of the panel lines on this Monogram classic!
I think it's good to know what is wrong with those parts if I will end up building something more accurate with those wheels. That '55 was planned to be a fun and fast project during the summer of 2014. Well, it's not surprising that I didn't quite make it as now I've done pretty much modifications to that thing...
I have removed molded in exhaust, added a new crossmember for transmission, modified those Ladder Bars a little, front axle is also modified and the engine (Big Block Chevy from my parts box) has scratchbuilt headers. I scratchbuilt a new firewall from sheet styrene, and made new panel lines as they were partly disappeared. I had to add a new chrome trim to the upper windshield trim. Hopefully I can get it done soon though.

Does Matt black guide coat count as primer?
This is a Jo-Han '60 Fleetwood stretched to the correct length for a two door then mounted on a modified Monogram '59 Eldorado frame. Roof and bed from a '59 El Camino, chrome reverse wheels from the '62 Catalina.
'59 Ranch Wagon based on an original AMT convertible and a slightly stretched Flintstone resin four-door roof
Thanks for looking.
