In Topic: Surprisingly overwhelmed.

Yesterday, 02:04 PM

About 5 years ago I started getting into cycling and went to a bike swap meet and was completely blown away much like you are now about model cars. I just knuckled down, asked questions and now I am pretty comfortable with any issue of cycling. It was learning curve. I have grown up building models and with 50 years experience it is almost like breathing for me.

My one piece of advice is to listen to most advice and then pick out what makes sense to you. Everyone develops their own technique. You will also. Try different things and go from there.I am abhorred by how some paint their models but they often get good results.

In a few years you will be able to post pics of your models and got to shows with pride. Craftsmanship and clean technique will do the trick. Good luck to you.

My favorite was the people who tapped on the windshield if you missed a spot.


Been there! I worked at a Clark station in high school and an Amoco in college.

Try taking it to a body shop! My mother had a fender bender with her Scion Xb. The body shop ran the bill up to $6600. The insurance company totaled it. We got the car back and a check for $5500.00 I fixed it for $950.00 and that was with paying my painter $300.00 to paint a bumper cover and fender!
