Topics I've Started

Home resin casting....

26 March 2014 - 10:05 AM

I picked-up a resin starter kit, and have been playing around with casting some tire sets. The first try is a set of big and little tires from the Revell Rebel Racer kit. I need a couple of sets for a 1969 Trans-Am Mustang build, and instead of stealing the tires I just cast a set. Not bad. The second set I cast, is a set of NASCAR slicks that have been widened a bit ( 60/40 split ) because I've always thought that the kit tires looked not wide enough. These will work on kits from the late 80's to the early 2000's. The third set I did ( in gray primer ) are NASCAR tires done a bit wider then the first set ( 70/30 split ) incase I didn't like how the 1st set looked. I also copied a GT racing seat from the Rebel kit. I think all in all they turned out not to bad for a serious 1st try at casting.


Painting with Nail Polish question....

07 January 2014 - 04:46 PM

I don't know if this is the right place to post this question ( if it's not please move it to the right place ) but I need to ask about airbrushing Nail Polish.  How hard or easy is it. What do you use to thin it. At what air pressure do you spray it at. Can it be clear coated with two part clear. Can you clear coat it with Future. And lastly, can you use polishing cloths on it before clear coating.  I'm looking to experiment with air brushing nail polish because of the vast choice of Florescent type colours available.
