    Heh, no problem. Thanks bud!



    Now a really stupid question, what's the "usual" tools? Your typical X-Acto set and the like?

    I'll comply but with the note that I've never, ever encountered a message board that stipulated that. Seems rather intrusive to me, IMHO. Thanks sticking your neck out for the warning though - I don't know if this will come out sounding sarcastic but it's genuinely appreciated. And I hope it doesn't get deleted.

    Anyway...




    True but unless people have some extra kits they'd be willing to part with that seems pricey at best, plus I've been having a difficult time locating extra kits locally.

    I was mostly looking to extend the front bumper spoiler into a full body kit, something more or less like in the attachment (mutilated from an original image from here). Or maybe another way to look at it, connecting the front and back wheel spoilers with a body kit, like shown here:

    And yes, extending that body kit to the rear valence too.

    Ok so I'm going to ask a stupid question but...since this is associated with GearZ, are you going to meet Stacey David at all? I loved his Trucks! show on the Powerblock!

    Scratching out a body kit for Revell 79 Z28 Camaro 3-n-1/Streetburner
    Hi! This is my first post here - I'm usually over at ARC but decided to get into car modelling and the very good folks there suggested that I might also want to give this place a try.

    I'm looking to scratchbuild a body kit for the Revell 79 Camaro 3-n-1 (also known as Streetburner) kit but I just realized I don't know the first thing about scratchbuilding, especially to get anything close to resembling a complicated curve down. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

    I guess you could also consider this a related question to the following thread: http://www.modelcars...showtopic=60891 so I'll be paying attention to that one too!

    I'd also like to avoid vac-forming for such a relatively small part.
