Thanks for the nice words, gentlemen. Making the master was as much fun for me as building the kit with the resin body. Everything just came together, and nothing fought me as is usually the case. I'm looking forward to building the next master, but I need to tune up the coupe master and get it to Greg so he can make a new mold. I'm on it.
Wow that looks amazing. All the effort was definitely worth it. Very nice. Cant wait to get my corrected bodies from greg. Got a question, how did you glue in the 1/4 windows without the black on the windows themselves getting smeared on the back by the glue?
Thanks Ryan. All the glass and light lenses are glued in with clear enamel paint, a tip from the aircraft builders who use it on canopies. Brush a little on the edges of the glass and the surrounding areas on the body, let it tack up for a couple of minutes, and lightly press the part into place. Then dab a little more into the corners with a fine brush to add extra adhesion. When dry, it's completely invisible. The enamel grabs well, doesn't smear paint, and doesn't fog like CA glue.
Mike's Mustang IS fantastic! Superb.
It won the monthly contest at our club meeting last Saturday.
We had a neat theme: MasterCaster Resins. There were eight (8) examples of Greg's casting artistry on the table, built and finished by various club members, and Mike's walked away with the trophy!!
Thanks Dan. It was a great meeting; food, friends, and model cars. What else do you need?
