Picked up a can of Dupli-Color Vinyl and Fabric Flat Black spray paint. Goes on really smoothly, has the perfect sheen for interiors, and dries amazingly quickly (e.g. within ten minutes I was able to pick up the test sprue I used and it was dry). Also picked up some bottles of Turtle Wax Rubbing Compound and Polishing Compound to buff out the paint job on my kits.

Nicely built '34 Ford pickup from the early '60s in a terrific color. I think this is either a Pactra or Testors color from the period if anybody knows, please chime in. ebay seller states that he got this and bunch of other well preserved built ups out of a storage unit. Smells like it came from a house where everybody smoked two packs of Lucky Strikes per day! This is pretty much how I received it, though I did clean the nicotine stain off the tonneau cover.

Plans are for a tear down, cleanup, adjustments to stance and new rolling stock. Maybe a different engine and new bumpers. Rub out and polish the old paint. Reassemble.

Check it out....


Chrome is pretty tired.

Tonneau cover, interior, and inner fenders are brush painted white over the original red plastic.

Some nice detail painting in the bed. Exhaust stacks didn't survive the mail. Deuce bumper attaches to extensions made from bit of chrome sprue.

The all-chrome 401hp 390 is under the hood.

Deuce bumper in the front, too.

The best side. Definitely needs to have the wheelbase adjusted.

Tires are rare Revell Parts Pack U.S. Royal Masters!

For some reason the chassis is brush painted flat red over the red plastic.

Cab's going to need to be removed and reattached to fix this problem!

Looks great with an original issue box!

Cool stuff but I could never work with that tiny hardware now, maybe 30 years ago. Good luck with them.

I was actually looking for bolt heads smaller than .5mm, but that was the smallest I could find. How I'm going to get the nuts threaded onto the bolts is still a mystery.

Micro ratchet wrenches of course. Kidding...just out of curiousity, what's going on the bench for the nuts and bolts?

Scale Hardware sells nut drivers for their scale nuts and bolts, but the smallest size they have is .8mm. I am using these for attaching the K-frame to the frame rails and for leaf spring eye bolts on my '69 Dart project.
