Ok…so it’s not a full-size Studebaker Avanti, but it was affordable. This is a 1960’s model kit which I picked up on the Internet.
This is a motorized model, which is unique. It was a complete kit and was partly assembled when I purchased it.
The bottom half of the car (rocker panels, etc.) was glued on and the electric motor was installed by a previous owner.
A little motorized action – just add a fresh AA battery.
I decided to paint the body and top first before continuing with the build. These are being sprayed painted.
I masked off the chrome (way harder than on a full size car) and any excess paint will come of with an exacto knife. I masked off the interior opening as that will get hand painted.
After looking at the second coat, I can see there’s going to be the need for a bit more sanding and another coat of paint applied.
More to come this model project.
Thanks for reading.
