In Topic: Improved Lighting & Magnification Options?

23 April 2014 - 03:56 PM

Hello all,

  Saw one at a train show, no name  brand. Looked on Grainger, prices range $60- $350. Cannot tell what the quality difference is. Maybe there is none nowadays. Fellow modelers have told me that LED ones burn up. Florescent would be good as that is the light we show and compete under. I would say $100 range is fine. Also they rate by dipolar, read the Wiki, still not sure how that affects it, if any for our use.

 Any brands, links, pics you could provide would be a help.

I remember installing a silicone hose kit on my freinds 92 gt, correct blue! Love the paint, very clean build.

Love it, Eric.  Wonderful rust and weathering, and all the great details help the viewer move around the model.  What kind of grill mesh is that?

Thanks for all your help and kind words. So the grill is a earing from about 1990 in my " that's something I sould hang onto bin". Always pays to raid the clearance bins.

Very cool ,  love the pipes on top of the carb !

Thank you, I was going for a steampunk look, and wanted to echo a old carival calliope.

Wow! I'm brand new here and I'd love to know how you went about getting the rims and body to look that weathered.


I just love rat rods and I didn't know you could achieve that look with a plastic model kit. Is there an area on the forum that can teach me how to do that?

 Seek out Dr. Crankys videos on you tube, he is my insperation. Also try and find AK Interactive magazine, its available for download. There is no rules, so your canvas is wide open, I think the replica stock guys have it the hardest. 

Love it! From your screen name, though, I expected to see a VTEC engine in it. :D

Oh you got me thinking.......
