I spoke too soon!  Yes we did get that snow... and who came trudging up to the door?  The mail man. That's unusual since our mailbox is down at the curb.  And he had a Priority Mail box with this Citroen truck in it!  I ripped it right open and already have all the parts off the trees and prepped.  I feel like an excited 12 year old.  Haven't gotten to a kit that quick in years!  Yipee!

Sorry for quoting the whole pic but was unsure how to cut it down. Anyway, what's the story on the Testor's Aztek Pearls? I've never seen Testors bottles like that before. Any info?

 

I'm a lucky guy. Kindly old Gepetto dropped off these Aztec pearls.

Then this showed up. I never thought it would happen.

And to top it off, this  minty-fresh novelty from the Hon. Rev. Mr. Black. It even has the tinted windows.

I was wondering about that, as I'd eventually like a stock 1/25 '69 GTO Judge myself. I think you still need to find an interior, correct? 

 

Have you tried the Revell '72 Cutlass chassis under the MPC body?

it's way to long.The 69' Olds works best.....I read the 1/24 scale monogram interior will work with some mods to it.

I'm shocked!  I love these old Heller Citroen trucks. I have them all but who can pass up an opportunity to get another copy? So I bid reasonably often, but never win.  So imagine my surprise that I won two of them in separate auctions today.  The Normandy for $16.50 and the Bordens truck for $22.72.   I lost the Hotel Taxi short bus version which sold for around $50. That's okay!  Now to go sit out by the mailbox!

Hi Tom,

Didn't know about those Heller Citroens.  I have always wanted to build some of the earlier ambulances, but the Johan Cadillac kits from that era just didn't look right.  May have to check into these kits...

I might be able to help there ^ i store my paint upside down so all the paint dont seddle to the bottom of the jar and when it dose i take the lid off and scrape it off with ease instead of trying to mix it back in with the paint .

The wheels for the 32 look  a bit smaller tho.. More like 15"s  at best.

I don't usually buy anything this modern, but it was going for a good price, and at the end of the day, it's still a 911

Union/Heller Porsche 917K kit with the Martini livery.  I've been after one of these for a while, and lucked out on a complete one with a couple of badly painted parts.  Got it for $20 plus shipping.  Not too shabby.  :)

Peter, those Aztec pearls are new. They are pre-thinned for airbrushing, have good pigment, and lay on very smooth. They dry to a satin finish you you have to clear it. Here's one of my first efforts using them. I bought mine directly from Testor's.

Guys, Testors has both gloss and matte clears in the Aztec line, I used their gloss. Dried very hard. I polished it up with Ultra Restore, no wet sanding needed. No base coat is needed.  A really great thing is that if you have a fubar, you can just re-coat the area and it blends just like the 1:1 waterborne auto paint. The Merc was primed using Plastikote, but I have found that it really likes bare plastic. If I can find any flaw, its that the pearl colors tend to ding a bit before they're cleared, but I  would think if the paint was "set" with a hair dryer one might not have that reaction. I'm going to try polishing some primer to see if the paint sticks to that as well as bare plastic. The total painting time on the Merc was 15  minutes, in a dirty and unheated garage with no paint booth, clean up time included. They make 40 colors, including transparent, opaque, and flourescent. Forgot to post the link, and the pic is of "ultra restore" from innovative hobby supply.

New Toy, will come in handy once I finish the bodywork on the 1:1 toy, picked up a can of Epoxy primer also, didn't figure it was photo worthy.
