show class help?

13 July 2014 - 01:33 AM

entered my first model show yesterday, had fun, entered 5 cars and won two first place trophys. Im new to this showing and wounder if theres guidelines for classes? Like what is considered box stock, open box, competition, etc. This show had 52 different classes and one of my entry to me looked like it fit into several classes? Overheard one contestant say he was moved out of pro street class because of tires. His car had slicks and needed street treaded tires to be in the pro street class.

  I had a blast and was shocked to win anything, but would like to learn he different terms or classes.

 

Thanks Drew.


wicked colors and reducing

15 March 2014 - 08:00 AM

newbie with an airbrush (paasche talon siphon and gravity feed) asking about what to reduce wicked pearls with their high performance reducer. Any mix ratio or eyeball it? So far im guessing and shooting junker bodies for practice. Seems really thick right out of the bottles so im trying about 50/50 mix with 30 psi at the airbrush.

What are you trying?

new to airbrushing, where to buy paints?

05 March 2014 - 01:30 AM

im a new to airbrusher. Ive got a set of 2 Paasche talons on order now. Ive got some experience using real paint guns on real cars but having trouble with models so far. Cant seem to get it thinned properly yet. Where is a good place to buy paints and supplies from? Any charts to help with reducing correctly?

Thanks in advance for your advice!

hello, does anyone have a Hess training van like the motorhome they could measure for me. Thinking maybe 1/25 scale or close?

Thanks. Drew


short track hauler truck

12 January 2014 - 06:45 AM

started this a while ago got bored and boxed it up. It was a glue bomb so im taking it apart and stretching it out and digging through my parts for inspiration  to fit my cars. It will be a 1960s-80s era hauler for my dirt track cars.

 do you think it looks too long, I know the car shown here is pretty short and a modern day NASCAR fits perfectly.
