  1. CometMan added a post in a topic how to paint die cast?   

    I have restored many old Hubley and Gabriel "metal kits", I just put the metal parts into a coffee can or glass jar, any container that is big enough will work as long as it's not plastic, with a full strength paint stripper. After that it is pretty much like a plastic kit, with the priming, painting, etc. The advantage of working with die-cast is that you can use any primer or paint you like, and stripping it goes much faster because you can use a wire brush or scraper with out damaging it.

  5. CometMan added a post in a topic So,any of you guys catch Barrett Jackson?   

    I agree with Bill. The prices of items in any hobby are very cyclical. With most high-end collectors chasing the latest hot item, and the "investors" trying to "get rich quick". After those folks either have that item and have moved on to the next "gotta have" piece, or have cashed-out, the market for that piece either becomes dormant or collapses. Some times that item gets hot again somewhere down the line, or more often, it becomes much harder to move from one owner to the next. Besides, with many of the famous collector car auctions having taken on an almost "reality TV" type of format, I have become very bored of seeing so many Mustangs, Corvettes, and Tri-Five Chevies cross the block (some times even the same car) from auction to auction that I don't keep up with them like I used to.

    I want a 1932 Ford truck. Yeah, a medium duty with Disc wheels would be a real winner ....

    Ok. Got some "Purple Power" cleaner. Is it best to spray it on or soak the body in it?

    Very nice! That's one of my favorite mustangs too. The 428 was a go-getter!

    I voted 5-window, but you left the Dan Fink faux woodie thing off the poll. Maybe somebody wants to vote for that.

    1982 Pete 359 livestock hauler
    Started years ago, it's finally finished. It's Revell's Snap Pete 359 slightly modified. Mods include a Detroit Diesel Silver92 engine plumbed and detailed, detailed interior, single air cleaner mounted to the driver's side, modeltruckin.com stripes, and numerous chrome goodies. The color is DSGM347 Medium Gray Metallic by DupliColor. The spot mirrors were scratch built. Numerous parts including the visor, bug shield, wheels/tires, fuel tanks and battery boxes come from the Revell AG Pete 359.



    Bringing up the rear.

    Thanks for looking.

    If you are going to add fender flares, go ahead and open the wheel wells. If not, leave as is. 
    Striping that old paint would be a great idea before you start.

    Since I build strictly stock, with an occasional mild custom thrown in, I think the Three Window Coupe looks the best. But, it has become too cliche, so I will say the Two Door Sedan.

    John.. Looking good man. Nice work on all of the levers and handles. Always love your scratch building. Love the touch of the wood grips. She is sure coming along and looks like you are almost ready to jump to the engine I see. You are going to have this done in no time at all. Outstanding work.

    Thanks, Greg. As I reread my post it seemed a bit showboaty. Not my intention, I just got excited that you referenced the PPE. Love that car and that style. 
  21. Jantrix added a post in a topic Favorite Revell '32 Ford   

    I'm gonna say sedan simply because I love that flathead, but I love them all and how interchangeable parts are.

    Nice. It is great to see a build of that style Torino that isn't a Starsky and Hutch Torino.
