Keep the support sprues on until you are complete with the painting and polishing. I learned the hard way from my coupe. While polishing, I got small hairlines cracks in the paint from the body flexing.


It would be nice if you could keep the sprues in place until after paint/sand/polish but due to their locations you can't... Unless you want to touch up all the areas they're located on & that's really not an option on this particular car 😏
It was more accidental that I broke mine, it snagged while I was taking it off the bench & because of it's fragility... Pop 😜 it went. But like I said... Easy enough fix & will eventually be held in place by the side panels 😉👍

What I'd like to see IS real Overhaulin' cars, as they have been converted by Foose, in kit form & NOT a re-issued kit with similar wheels & incorrect decal sheet/s. Correct body parts, tyres, wheels, interior, engine, suspension, trannies etc... Not hard to replicate with today's 3D printing/scanning technology... 😉

Being a Mopar fan ( Harry?? 😉😉 ) any of the cars on Graveyard cars. Would be easier than Overhaulin' cars, because most are factory stock.

Mad Max anything. But with the new trailer being EPIC and movie to hit next year, I predict reissues will follow with maybe at least one new offering.


I believe the question asked was, what TV show/s... not movie/s.

What I like is seeing all those sprue supports to keep the body from warping


It's good that they're there before you have to cut them away... Then the frame/body becomes very fragile... Trust me... I already snapped the 2 supporting sections, a 2-3mm section on the bottom of the front wheel arches... Easily fixed with superglue & will be held together once the side body parts are added after painting. 😉
