Ted you are not kind with your own person. You are for sure a perfectionist and sometimes you only can see the imperfections in your work. So let me remember you that you are a great artist, and a very creative modeler. You make an incredible good job and very inspiring pictures. Even your pictures are so detailed and the way you add your comments to explain how you wheatered your model is so perfect and acurate. So please go on because you are my hero !!!

Alain,
Your comments are very kind. Thank you. I felt like sharing my roadblock to getting a project finished. I’have plenty of ego! Lol

This is a duplicate message to one I am posting in the general chat as an update for the progress on the Sig Build [1966 Batmobile/1955 Futura]. Seriously guys, I'm not trolling for sympathy but rather to just let everyone know I am still moving along with my Batmobile triple diorama.

Ive been battling some more health problems last few weeks. This time it is kidney failure vs dehydration vs badly swollen feet and legs. BETTER last few days and soon back to the bench! I am still truly thankful for the health that I do have.

I pray this prayer of thanks twice each day.

See you back here soon!

Thank you very much guys. The support here is always part of my “recovery”. I had gotten pretty depressed about the situation but feel much better after a couple of visits with my primary physician. I have seen him for close to 23 years and he is a great Dr.

Well, Ive been active the last week or so. Doing more things around the house, slowly, but moving forward with some small projects.
This activity included doing the renovation on my modeling bench and actually doing a spot bit of work prepping the 66 Batmobile body for paint.
I had ordered the Tamiya set of polishing mediums--Coarse, Fine, and Finish. I applied a small amount of the coarse medium to the Bat body
and using a q-tip, worked it in small circles. I will wash off the area I worked on and see if it is going to provide the smoothness I'd like to have.
If the coarse is good then I go to fine and finish. The idea being that the compound curves and edges of the Batmobile body are a bit difficult with
sandpapers, even wet. Too many tight areas to get at effectively. Hoping the compound will help that dilemma?

I have just done exactly the same thing with a vintage Revell 1/16 dragster I'm doing for a SIG on Flory forum.  The kit plastic is already black, and since I don't have the experience or skill to airbrush a gloss coat, I thought about just polishing the plastic.  Turned out pretty decent in the end.  I'm applying the decals this weekend, and they're pretty old decals, so we'll see if it all turns out right.

I’m just using the polishing compounds to get as smooth a surface as possible. Hope to be spraying paint soon.

Great to see that you still is working on the batmobile! I've only used polishing compounds on clear parts but they have always worked great.

This build have put up a good fight, great to see that you fight back! [smile] 

Maybe you can give it a coat of Mr. Surfacer or similar primer and then polish?

I thought about Mr surfaces but I hesitate to do anything to the whole body at once. I’ll see what happens with the putty first. The plastic is so soft. Same thing on the 89 movie Batmobile. The Klingon Bird of Prey I did a while back was not as soft. Seems like it’s just the AMT models molded in black.
