Thanks for the kudos. I'm still working on the highlighting. Testors model paint dries too quickly so I ordered a pint of 1-Shot sign painter's enamel.

Joe, if you decide to make any extras (or have a prototype that didn’t quite work out), I would pay a fair price for one of those. That looks fantastic!

Thanks for bumping this thread. I completely forgot to post an update when I redid the lettering with One Shot.

The original frame is on the top in the picture. The sign painter's paint was definitely the way to go. It takes so long to dry I had a lot of problems with the paint wicking and it took a couple tries to get it right (I ended up applying the white very lightly with a foam brush).

I still need to do a little touch up work to my clone frame because of the wicking and the molding compound didn't capture all the detail of the Chevrolet lettering in the bowtie. I'm pretty happy at this point. No one is going to look this close when the frames are back on the car.

I appreciate the kudos L78M22Rag. I still have the silicone molds. Send me a PM if you'd like to work something out a couple castings.

I sent you a PM Joe. You’ve put a lot of effort into this, and it shows.
