    Some more progress on this, I am nearing completion, but it won't be for a while, This week will be busy for work and I don't think I will get any modeling time for 1-2 weeks. 
    I also fixed the backwards bank of carbs, thanks to Andy for pointing that out

    the best thing I have found for removing paint or residue precisely are these very firm, conical swabs. The make made my life so much easier, and are infinitely better than toothpicks. I bought them the one time I went into hobby lobby

    I like the new '29 Ford, so I got another, and 2 of the '30 Coupes

    You got lucky, they go for 3x that amount now, if they ever pop up for sale at all

    I use Scale Finishes. So far I have used Duplicolor Paint Shop Lacquer clear, and Gravity 2 part clear with good results.

    I only have 2 high dollar kits. One of them is a holy grail for me. $500 for a limited run of 1/8 GT40 super detail engine. The other was $250 for a long out of production Scale Motorsports Super Detail Porsche 956 set. All the rest of my kits were $30 or less

    I really want to go to this. Has anyone been before. I want to bring my wife and 2.5 year old. I need advice on how to keep my family sane. Earplugs for the kid, something to keep my wife occupied. We're young (30-32) but both have bad back injuries and can walk or sit for very long. I was wondering if they let you bring in seat pads and stuff. I still need to read over all their rules. 
     
    Also, if any of you are amateur photographers, I would appreciate any advice on lenses and settings to use. I know it all depends, but a starting point would be helpful. 
    I have a Canon 70D and a 70-300 4-5.6L lense and a Sigma 50mm ART I thought would be good for the paddock. If not, I have a 10-22 wide angle.

    Like a dream. I did get a new airbrush setup though. It's a fan tip .5mm for my Grex, so I think that helped a bit, but when spraying out of my regular .3 for some other parts, it comes out nicely. Closest thing I can compare it to is Zero paints. I also use Scale Finishes, their metallic paints are super easy to use.

    Thanks. I did chrome, then hot metal blue, then hot metal sepia, then smoke. When I finish, I will take better pics that show the finish more. It looks nice in person

    What did you use for the coil springs, and what did you paint them with? I am doing the same build, and did the same thing with the shocks. I used solder for the coils and wasn't sure if they would hold paint
    build is looking good so far.

    '29 Ford Roadster
    Been bouncing around from build to build. Sat down and got a bunch of parts painted on this one yesterday. Doing this build completely out of the box, which may explain why I am actually making progress. I may add spark plug wires, not sure yet. 
    Gravity Colors Volkswagen Pacific Blue for the body. Clearcoat still on the way. I think I will use Tamiya's clear on this one, but I have trust issues with it. I usually clear parts before using Alclad polished finishes, but it left fisheyes everywhere on the parts. That's why the hub caps and other smooth parts aren't as reflective as normal. 
    I meant to use Alclad Pale Gold for the carbs, but grabbed Gold Titanium instead. I think it worked out ok. I rubbed on some Kosutte Ginsan on the molded in linkage to make it stand out. 







    Not sure if I will use any of the wheel trim parts yet, I like the black look.
