On Ebay it often means "inflated price"

Great job. 


In Topic: Rattle Cans - who still uses them?

03 June 2013 - 02:13 PM

I use only rattle-cans.  The main reason is that I live in an apartment, and my "spray booth" is the outdoor 6 x 8 balcony so an airbrush isn't really an option for me.


In Topic: Metal Axle Madness!

The old "metal-axel" kits are actually my favorites - especially the ones that were never re-issued. 

 

I think I like them because it's sort of like restoring an actual old 1:1 car, but a whole lot cheaper.  :D

 

Hard to find one in decent, restorable condition at a reasonable price, but sometimes I get lucky.

 

AMT 1960 Mercury "annual" that I restored from an old built-up.  This one is completely built using all the original parts, but I did have to repair both bumpers with bare metal foil:

AMT 1960 Lincoln - this one I built from the best parts of 3 old "annual" built-ups:

I did have to get the hood ornament from Modelhaus since it was missing on all three.
