Hi everyone,
I dug up these old photos and scanned from nearly a forty year old Car Model magazine. From seeing how some of you have done this,not much has really changed. Hope this helps on that next project.

This would make a great re-pop, in this original form, for MCM printed at full size. Great for beginners and those seeking a bit of nostalgic memories. Thanks for putting this up for us! Joe

if you guys want real good old tutorials track down model magazines from the 60s. I have 2 and they are great and older rod and customs from early 60s did have a model section too. But no problem on bringing this back to the top. Glad it helps
