  3. CSMO added a post in a topic AMT '55 Chevy Cameo pickup windshield problem   

    I painted the gasket on the glass with a Black Sharpie. I tacked it where it touched with Formula 506 Canopy Glue and used the same stuff to fill all of the gaps when the tacks dried. I wiped the excess off with a damp Q-Tip. I'm pretty satisfied. Adios, Larry.

    AMT '55 Chevy Cameo pickup windshield problem
    The kit windshield id about 3/32" too small around its perimeter to fit in the body shell. I can't get enough points of contact to even get a dry-fit without it falling through. Has anybody else had this problem? Does anybody have a suggestion for dealing with this problem? I am an airplane modeler with limited experience building cars and trucks.
    Adios, Larry.

    Hi, Mark. Can you share a little backstory as to how and why a railroad would operate a tugboat. Yoe have made a beautiful model of something unique. Adios, Larry.

    Matchbox 1/76 M19 Diamond transporter and Rodgers trailer
    This is my first ever attempt at weathering a model. The truck and trailer are painted faded Olive Drab to show a well-used vehicle. The Airfix M4 Sherman was painted a darker shad to indicate a vehicle fresh from overhaul. The mud, dried mud, dirt , and dust was Walmart acrylic craft paint thinned with alcohol and applied in varying thickness with several brushes. The M19 is bed-loaded with supplies for the unit receiving the refurbished tank. I had a lot of fun with this project.

    Adios, Larry.

    Road rage back in the day. He could have run a funeral parlor(hence the coffin). Another fine build. Adios, Larry.

    This momma and brat have got faces only a mother could love. Cool build with great workmanship. Thanks for posting. Adios, Larry.
  11. CSMO added a post in a topic Lindberg 1/32 1976 Ford Granada   

    Thanks for posting this. I owned an '80 Granada ESS two-door coupe. It was one of the last of the original body-style Granadas. It was Silver-Gray Metallic with a matching Vinyl landau top. It had the basket weave 15" wheels a Burgundy interior. In my opinion it was one of the best looking cars that I ever owned. I kept it for 5 years and traded it in on an '86 Ford Mustang 5.0 ragtop(mid-life crisis upon turning 40). Well done on your build. Adios, Larry.

    Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's Rat Fink by Revell
    I built one of these in '67 or '68 for my little brother. I bought this one from e-Bay for a stress relief project. It is built old-school with tube glue. I brush-painted it with whatever enamel paints that were lying around on the bench at the time. I like him. He is my modeling mascot now, as he sits where he can watch me butcher plastic at my bench. Adios, Larry.

    AMT 1/25th '36 Ford coupe.

    This is my third and latest 1/25th build. It is the AMT '36 Ford coupe that was built from an e-Bay glue-bomb. It is the 25th anniversary(1981) release of the 1966 kit. I brush-painted it Humbrol(U.K.) Gloss Lime Green. Interior is Primer White and acrylic yellow craft paint. The engine is the stock flat-head. It is OOB except the rear tires came from the "40 Ford Tudor sedan and the window glass is cut from a sheet of clear packaging material, as the kit glass was unusable. I am a 1/72 airplane builder and I don't own an airbrush. I had to prime the whole model with Plastikote White rattle-can primer after stripping off the original crappy paint.

    Adios, Larry.
    Here is the '36 with its stable-mates, the AMT '40 Tudor and the AMT '32 Vicky. All are brush-painted and built 98% OOB.

    Well done, sir! Your color scheme would look right at home on a Rolls Royce, Daimler, Bugatti, Packard or a Dusenberg. Adios, Larry.

    Hi, Scott. Welcome from a fellow Missourian. I take it from your handle that you are from Chicago. When I was a teenager, used to hear the ads for the U.S. 30 Dragstrip on WLS radio, at nights on my old AM radio. ("Sunday! Be There!"). Welcome. Adios, Larry.
