Separate names with a comma.
Thank You for that tip.
hello all lol
any petty cars?
heres a tip glue glass in with elmers white glue turn kit upsidedown and alow to dry, the glue will dry clear and will not haze up the glass like model glue does
No, just hold the thread against a candle with your thumb and pull it with your other hand. It will pick up enough wax to keep the thread from fraying.
solder works alot too...like exhaust, roll bars, nerf bars...etc. Also, I use 2 inch masking tape for vinyl tops, seat upholstery, convertible roofs.
i like what u started cliff this helps me
Thanks DD I think it will help all of us.
yup i think it will
add alittle heat to make dents, redoxide primer will make gr8 rust while painting a kit - paint first, then add decals and clear coat after the decals are applied, paint any silver trim after the clear coat, silver tends to bleed
anybody ever worked with baremetal foil, i have never had much luck with it , would luv to know the correct way to use it
When I use the foil, cut out a piece a little bigger than what you are covering with an X-acto knife. I peel it off the sheet with tweezers, and use the tweezers to apply the foil to the model. I then take a Q-tip and rub the foil on the area gently. Trim off the excess with a sharp X-acto blade. When I do a windshield frame, I will cut out four individual pieces to cover the area, instead of trying to do it with one large piece. Hope this helps.
Thanks for that tip.
Begin collecting all sorts of materials. Think of old copper motor windings for fine wire; heavy aluminum foil from wine bottles for sheetmetal; even parts from old ballpoint pens contain things that can be used. Think out of the box and fill up your parts box. Especially useful are items that can be used to create dioramas with your model as the focal point.
I will do that.
the model master paints are good to use
kegan do they work well with a air brush kit?

new tip - to paint monochromatic bumpers like on dusters, challengers ect, soak the bumpers in 409 or fantastic for a while it will remove the chrome which will then hold paint, got a set i am doing now t a roadrunner for a petty car will postem later
here is how the chrome disapears from the bumpersView attachment DSCF6259.jpg
Another great tip. Thanks

heres an idea - go to flea markets buy kits that are assembled and bring them home. Get em good and wet and stickem in the freezer after a day or so you can diassemble it and have lots of left over parts
