MPC 64-67 Vette

29 March 2014 - 08:18 PM

So, I got a built up Vette from a friend who bought it at a yard sale for me. It needs a couple of parts. I thought it was the Streaker Vette but looking at the Streaker on the net it has 5 hole kidney bean wheels. My kit has 4 hole wheels with a tiny hole or divot between the kidney bean holes on each wheel. Could this be the MPC 64 Vette?
I am missing the hood and one front tire and wheel. I would like to post a request for parts in the Wanted section but I want to know what kit to ask for parts from. Any help identifying this kit would be great. It is molded in white plastic, if this helps.

68 El Camino optional air intake

14 March 2014 - 02:16 AM

Does anyone have photos of a build up they did, or a copy of the instructions for the optional set up that includes the square ribbed air box and forced air system?
I have searched Drastic Plastic for instructions with no results. They have two 68 El Camino kits but it isn't on them. Either this set up is not from the 68 El Camino or they never included it on the instruction sheet.
I received a resin copy from one of our members and I would like to see what it is supposed to look like when completed.
I will try to post pics today of what I have so as to help identify what I'm talking about.

Flat paint question

20 February 2014 - 03:38 AM

I am doing a paint job that I want to have a flat, aged look. Something similar to a military style paint job. I want it to have a flat white detail stripe done with decals. I painted the body with Testors Intermediate blue to start. If I am not mistaken I need a gloss coat to apply the decals to.
My question is how do I get the flat look back after applying the gloss and decals? If I put down a top coat of Dull Coat won't I end up with a semi gloss finish? Should I just skip the gloss coat? If I do, won't the decals silver on me?

Photobucket's recent debacle

04 January 2014 - 12:11 PM

What has Photobucket done to their site now? I can't upload photos to it from my phone anymore. It comes up with the screen to click on the checkmark to upload photos but I can't seem to click on it. I sure wish sites wouldn't put out updates that don't seem to work. Is anyone else having problems or is it just me? How have you gotten it to work? What was wrong with the way it was? Why do I sound so much like my FATHER right now?
