1/25 Drag car detailing questions

12 September 2012 - 01:57 PM

I am wanting to get a little more detailed on my drag car models. I was wondering if any of you guys out there would have any templates or tutorials for scratch building on the following subjects.
- 1/25 4link rear suspension brackets and other rear suspension items (no photoetched)
- 1/25 wheelie bars styrene or metal
- 1/25 front suspension items and set up for a tube chassis (no photoetched)
Thanks for any help...

Altering wheelbases

Anyone out there got a tutorial or info showing how to alter the wheelbase, fab the body panels, and all other things associated to make an A/FX model. Any help would be appreciated.

Here's a few pics of my latest. Had quite some time on this one, frame was severely warped out of the box. Lots of rubber bands, super glue, and heat finally got it close enough to work.

Does spray paint ever go bad?

14 April 2012 - 03:15 PM

This thought never occured to me until today. I was painting parts for my 62 revell Impala, and remembered I needed some chevy orange for the engine. Instead of driving into town to purchase a can, I decided to see if I might have something that would come close to the color I needed. I was searching in my outdoor storage building, and to my surprise there was a rusty old can of chevy orange sittting on the shelf. I know for a fact that the can of paint is at leat 20yrs old, can is all rusty, plus it has been subjected to temperatures below 0 & above 100 for all those yrs. Believe it or not it sprayed and looked just as good as a brand new can!!!
