Monogram Badman Model Kit

A Tom Daniel Badman Chevy

This kit is one of those models that is so famous. Just about every car modeler has built it at least once. I've assembled many in my life time.

It's simple, but made from thick plastic and thick parts. Nothing flimsy here. So it's a perfect kit for youngsters. But even as an adult, I still love this kit!

I think it is one of the best Top 10 model car kits of all time. Generations of modelers have built this car.

Even though it's molded in color, I painted it yellow to get a consistant look to the body. The interior is made up of two sections - some is on the chassis, some is a separate piece. I masked those off and painted them a Neutral Grey color.

Microscale makes a glue that's for foil. You can use it on either side, the shiny side or the dull side, depending on the look you're going for - shiny or metal. I've used this stuff for years.

Bare Metal Foil is great stuff too, but sometimes I use this glue, which works on household aluminum (which is thicker and sometimes more manageable than Bare Metal Foil, which is extremely thin).

Using the rounded end of a paintbrush, and somethines a dull toothpick, can help get the foil smooth and where you want it.

This version of the Badman included red tinted windows, but not all the issues of this kit do.

Overall, it's a fun kit to build.
