    Really appreciate the great feedback! Yea went out one a limb with the white grill.  Didn't really like how the chrome one looked in there with there being hardly any chrome on the rest of the car.  So I looked at the tires and thought, white. Ha

    1949 Mercury Custom
    Hello modeling friends! 
    This is is the Revell Mercury kit that's pretty amazing. From the building options to the excellent easy fitting parts. I built this kit as a gift for my brother who is an Auburn University graduate.  Here is a list of the things I added or changed  to the model. A lot of the ideas I got for the car came from all you guys wonderful builds. Hope there's no hard feelings!! 
    -blended the front bumper
    -cut the B pilar out 
    -smoothed the fire wall and molded in wires  
    -wired the spark plug wires, battery, colant overflow, alternator, oil filter, and fuel lines. 
    -upgraded to a 12v system with a new battery and alternator with custom bracket  
    -added the clear steering wheel, metal springs up front, air cleaner and resin valve covers
    -paint and clear are duplicolor auto lacquer 
    Thanks for looking and model on!!!

    1969 Dodge Charger Firewall
    Hello all! Looking for a fire wall for the Revell 1969 charger kit. I know a lot of those fire walls are similar for the late 60s mopar, so if anyone has another option it's always welcomed. I don't have the biggest parts box but feel free to ask for something as a trade. Thanks!

    Sorry about that. It's the for the revell kit. Think it's a Cadillac 331 ci motor.

    Oval air cleaner
    Hey guys. Been working on the 49 mercury revell kit for the past decade it seems.  Trying to jazz up the pretty boring engine the kit comes with by adding some new parts. Already have caddilac valve covers on it with a new alternator and fan.  Last part to top it off would be a oval air cleaner to sit atop the three carburetors. I have seen the one that comes with the older camaro kits and think that would look great. If any of you guys or girls have that part that would like to trade or donate to me 😊, it would be awesome!! Any ideas on my motor are welcome too. Here's a few picks of what I have so far.

    Stripping!
    Little misleading title, but hope I'm posting this on the right forum ha. Im looking for a process that effectively strips the body of top coat and primer with out eating into the plastic. Only methods I found to kinda work either took all day or when I come back to check on the body it's half gone. What products have you guys got to work for you?? Love to hear all your knowledge!
    Thanks

    '41 Willys Gasser
    Decided to to my own take on a really cool classic. Always loved hot rods specially in bright colors. It's right out of the box with just spark plugs and hand built distributor added for right now. Body is being painted and should be good to go in a couple of days. Hope you guys enjoy it!!
