In Topic: Pontiac - ClubDeMer,,,so it begins

this is a neat car! I built one but I just built it out of the box with minimal mods, which means it looks pretty breezy from the side view! its one I would love to do a proper job on one day.

 

those stars...I would make a mold of them by pressing some silly putty against them and then pouring some mixed 5 minute resin in that mold. shouldn't be a big deal. then just sand them smooth, might be a good idea to drill some locater holes like suggested, and continue with your body smoothing.

 

its gonna be like a boat in a bottle to get the interior painted and installed with the body sealed and painted.

oh so is THAT what "c-ing" a frame looks like! I usually just call that grinding the hell out of it with a dremel!

 

nice project Bernard. especially like those offset front wheel mounts. I need to do something like that to a project I got going.

they (Floyd) never surpassed Pipers At the Gates of Dawn. but of course that was an entirely different thing than they were doing later, in stadiums with big inflatable animals and lots of effects loops.

In Topic: Model at the dump?

whats with the problem with it being at the dump? people throw away a lot of perfectly good stuff...go to the dump sometime and take a look around. as far as it being dirty, its probably no dirtier than something at a random garage sale. hell I would grab it in a second, if it was something I wanted or thought someone I knew wanted. then if I was feeling germophobic, I would spray some Lysol on it. I doubt I would waste the Lysol though.

so whats with this can't make up their mind about whether it is 1/24 or 1/25 scale business? I mean, its one or the other...why if it is 1/24 does it say, plain as day, 1/25 on the box? is it that they (mfg, in this case I would assume Round 2) just don't care? kind of like I don't because its such a small difference in most cases...but its not me putting out the kits. you would think they would get that right, or at least consistent. maybe its because the American "standard" seems to be 1/25 and they want to fit in? still...writing it on the box top does not the contents make.
