    What do you use to apply the mixture so it won't leave debris?

    Fixing Future Clearcoat Runs?
    Has anyone tried sanding Future clear coat runs? Or can you just buff them out with a wet cloth?

    Need .005" Purple PVC Or Another Idea
    I posted this on the wanted forum, but I think this is the forum most likely to help me as many drag cars from the 60's had windows tinted in rainbow colors. I need half a sheet of .005" transparent purple sheet plastic. Midwest Products used to make it, but now they only make .010" thick and that won't work for my application.

    Or if someone else has an idea on tinting windows purple I'm all ears. I've used Tamiya clears to tint windows with varying results over the years.

    Thank you.

    -Jeff

    Special Appearance is still alive and kicking. I just bought a bunch of Mopar drag decals from him. A pretty big catalog, very high quality, and he will print them in multiple scales:

    The truck cab is available in resin from Keith at sourceks@msn.com. I have one on the bench to be built. Very nice quality.

    I was going to build the black Prudhomme Snake III Cuda off of multiple Slixx sheets, until Chuck Boerne brought out his set.

    I think the colors may be wrong, but Fred Cady did a set of Cable decals for an earlier Grotheer car.
  12. jeffaary added a post in a topic Really cool video on Youtube about Snake and Mongoose!   

    That DVD (Once Upon A Wheel) is available to purchase on Ebay or Snake's website, among other places. In addition to the video it has a LONG slideshow that is a great source of reference photos for building Snake & Mongoose models.
  13. jeffaary added a post in a topic Decals by Lucas   

    I wasn't going to post about this when it happened, but after reading this I will. I ordered some decals from Decals By Lucas a few months ago. After a month they did not show up, so I e-mailed him about it. No response. Paypal gives you 45 days to make a claim, so I waited until the last minute to give Rick full benefit of the doubt before submitting the claim. After the claim was made I finally got a NASTY e-mail from Rick saying he had sent the decals. I don't know whether he did or he didn't, but if he had responded to my original e-mail I would have taken his word for it and not filed a Paypal claim. And the e-mail he did send was completely unprofessional and cost him a customer.
  14. jeffaary added a post in a topic Johan Challenger funny car "Ram Rod"   

    Many of the MPC models of that era were just street car bodies slapped on a funny car chassis. However, the Johan Ram Rod (and the Gene Snow Rambunctious) is an excellent representation of the early 1970 Challlenger body and chassis. Up until about 1/2 way through 1970 Mopar funny car bodies still had molded-in grille and tail light details. Here's the early style 1970 Tom Hoover White Bear Challenger:





    Later in 1970 the bodies and chassis got streamlined. The front end became a flat panel with painted grille details. Here's the 1971 Color Me Gone:


    If you are building an early style 1970 Challenger, you should use the Ram Rod. If you are building a later sytle you should use a resin body.
