Well, my collection of the old Revell Corvair-powered c-cab kits in now complete with this final addition: The Amazing Moon Mixer! The other four (Patent Pending, Meter Cheater, T-Bone Stake and der Guber Wagen) are also pictured here in the guest gallery.
This kit was also the hardest to find at a builder's price but perseverance finally paid off and I got it within my budget. I actually didn't pay more than $35 for any of the five kits in this series! Of course it only took about 7 years to find them at these prices but I guess it was all in the timing.
The body and bed are HoK Cinnamon Pearl. I also wanted to paint the stripes/ridges on the fenders and hood in the same Cinnamon so I shot half sheet of Bare Metal Foil with the Cinnamon Pearl and cut thin strips of the foil that were then applied onto the body and fender ridges. The Silverwhite Pearl on the body lines were applied by brush. Finally everything was cleared using DuPont ChomaClear 2 part urethane. BMF was also applied to the "Apollo" mixer as well as the bed rails. A little detail paint on the chrome Corvair power plant out back and this one was done!
