need advice on some items

20 July 2011 - 12:15 PM

Ok, I am about to buy some items from Micro-Mark and I need some advice from you more experienced builders first. I have my eye on the rust and dust 4 stage system mainly meant for trains, but was wondering if it would work for model cars. I was also looking at the age it easy for wood (for dioramas), it is a liquid brush on I think. And I was also looking at the soldering iron/knife for cutting plastic, but is what I really need to know is, does it work. Thank you in advance for any advice.

Help-85 mustang GT

28 June 2011 - 11:14 AM

I am starting a project for a friend I work with and need a little help please. This friend wants me to build a 1985 mustang Gt like his 1:1 mustang, so I bought the monogram 1985 mustang SVO and come to find out the head lights are different. I was wondering if there was a GT version made out there somewhere, or anybody has any idea of how I can build the headlights using styrene. I did notice there is a seperate grille piece from the hood on the Gt and the SVO hood comes down past the grille piece. Any help is appreciated and thank you in advance.

Oldsmobile ?

05 June 2011 - 03:27 PM

Ok, I was at a yard sale on Friday and bought a whole box of glue bomb model cars for $4.00. The box contained alot of vintage models that I have seen before, but there is an oldsmobile curbside by jo-han (I think its a 1960 but not sure) model car in there that I have never seen before. I was wondering if anyone knows of this kit or may have one. I stripped it down today and threw it in the purple pond, to get the 45 layers of paint off. This kit does not have an opening hood, therefore there is no engine, but if i find out its not rare the hood will open and it will be packing some iron. Im not really familiar with these kind of cars, but the body style is pretty sweet. I dont have any pics now but I will post them when I get it out of the pond. Any info would be helpful. Thanks in advance. Jerred C.

to wait or not to wait

OK, I was at Hobby Lobby the other day and found the L.A.Fire Rescue Peterbuilt on clearance for $40. Should I buy this model or should I wait and see if it goes down in price, it was originally $79. I was really tempted, but my wife told me it has been on clearance for a while now. Just looking for your guys opinions. Thanks in advance.
