    Working with Automotuve Paint (HOK)
    For those of you who are spaying plastic models with Automotive paints, Can you fill me in on the mixing ratios and what materials you are using? I would like to paint my next project with a House of Colors Candy and I want it to come out correctly.

    Thank you in advance!

    1/24 to 1/25 parts
    I wanted to kit bash and build my own Bellytank lakester, I found a pair of droop tanks from a 1/24th scale WWII fighter and I had planned on using the front suspension and engine from a 1/25th scale street rod kit. However, when I get the parts side by side, the tanks look way too big. I didnt think there was that much difference between the two scales...Suggestions or Ideas?

    32 Ford Sedan Delivery Bodies
    A big Thank You to Rob for these beautiful 32 Ford Sedan Delivery bodies. I recieved them last night and can't wait to dig in. But, due to the limited space I have to work, they will have to sit in the queue until my current project is completed( kit bash, scratch build 1/24th scale 40's style Belly Tank salt flat racer).





    This was a smooth transaction and Rob shipped right away! He even included some cool resin cast bits I can use for other projects down the road!

    Thanks Mate!

    Hooknladderno1, I saw your post and will also be watching your progress. So far, it looks fantastic. I also went back and read the whole topic on the Circus T. I start the project tonight and will post pics along my way.

    My grand dad told me stories about growing up in northern Maine. he told me they used tracked T's in the logging industry. He also told me they'd put there T in the barn and use it to run a saw mill all winter. Took a tire off, mounted a pulley and ran a belt over to the mill. It's what made them money during the winter..

    Good luck with your project and yes, little girls know the strings to pull.......

    Thats correct. I'm going to build my version on the mail truck from the Christmas Special, Santa Claus is coming to town. It was a request from my little girl. Who could say no to that?

    Looks killer! Fill us in on the paint and what flake you used. What size tip do you have in your airbrush? I just bought a Paashe and would like to try a paint job like that...
