GMC build

Hi all, just like to share a GMC build I started this week, the body is from Jaden, thanks - it's awesome for UK jemsters to be able to get quality parts easily. Any way got to let the clear harden, then pickup a few more parts from the bay & hit up Max for some bits

Re: GMC build

Man, that swirl looks like it belongs in a graveyard around some tombstones, very creepy. I think I see a few ghosts in there. Cool!

Re: GMC build

Just out of curiosity, what is it with the reverse headstocks these days? They seem to becoming more popular. I don't care for them, but maybe I'm missing something. Very cool swirl though man!!

Re: GMC build

When I first saw it I thought "Eeeww, wtf?" but looking at it properly... it's got a very spooky kinda vibe. I like it!

Re: GMC build

hey andyt, merry chrimbo buddy, glad to see your keeping busy mate, loving the swirl and i got to say im a big fan of the reversed headstock, the swirl looks very menacing. i will keep watching mate. im also a big fan of jadens handwork, im gonna be painting a few of his myself, it just seems a bit of a shame to do, esp on the mahogany ones, they look like pieces of rich chocolate cake! HAGO mate and AHNY! that goes to everyone else out there also.

Re: GMC build

Zoot, item 120200154817, you'll like the name of the seller also. I'd tried Plastikote fluros from B&Q before & they were terrible.
