In Topic: 68 Barracuda fix - Finished

When question have come up about paint removal on model bodies, I currently use Super Clean from Walmart at less than $8.00 a gallon and strips lacquer and enamel.
Try it and you will love it as it doesn't damage plastic. Cleanup is wash with soapy warm water.

In Topic: Resin Parts for Monogram Blue Beetle

13 February 2014 - 03:37 PM

I would like to model a clone of the Monogram Blue Beetle pickup.  I have the body from a late kit, but neet the seats and the cadillac valve covers.  I thought I had read somewhere that someone was casting the seats and valve covers.

I know Replica and Minitures does the scuba tank and such.

Thanks for any suggestions.

In Topic: For the 30's era kits. Questions

I would add that being a great fan of the older classic cars and particularly focused on the Duesenbergs that any of these listed kits can make great conversion pieces with some research and effort.

 

Model Martin's Mudd coupe is fantastic as is the stock Duesenberg hood he created.  I have an order in for 10 of the stock hoods for already in progress Duesenbergs on my desk. The stock carb, air cleaner and stock exhaust can be cast from one of Art's old Duesenberg  stock hood and accessory kit or from a Franklind Mint Gary Cooper yellow Duesenberg.

 

I would be a candidate for any of the reissues or new classic resin kits.
