Can someone advise how to "update" a topic? I just added some pictures to an on the workbench topic that I started last summer , and I'd like to let it be known that it has been updated. Thanks.

Forty Ford

This is the Revell "Goodguys" issue from late '09.  It's pretty much box stock with the exeecption of some flock, speaker grille decals, a photo-etched radio face and Pegasus wheels and tires.  I have a can of Tamiya French or Brilliant Blue for the body.  The grille area is marked out because I had originally planned to remove it and use a substitute, but things changed.  As always, comments and critiques are welcome.

"It's a multi-step process that can be applied to metal, plastic, glass and fiberglass.  The surface is cleaned and prepped the same as it would be for paint.  Then the desired pattern and the part are submerged in water, where the pattern adheres to the part.  Once that pattern is rinsed and dried, it is clearcoated."  This is an excerpt from a paragraph in Hot Rod Magazine, October 2014, about a process that they call "hydrographics".  The article advises that  it is also called "water-transfer printing" and "hydro printing".    The designs can be applied "to just about any hard, non-porous surface".  Except for submerging the part in water, it sounds a lot like applying decals.  Life imitates art, imitates life...

Saleen Mustang

Yes, this is a Revell Saleen Mustang.  I'm not a big fan of the actual car but I'm building this for my daughter, something which I promised many years ago.  I'm going to have it finished to take to the CKM NNL, then bring it up to LI when we fly up for the block party at our daughter's house.  It's basically box stock, with some flock, BMF and decals to add some pop, and some contrasting colors on suspension components.  It will be a One-Coat lacquer blue, but I don't remember which one.  And, yes, I do have to touch up one big, ugly white area on the chassis.  As always, your comments are welcome.  Thanks for looking.
