    I used to be in the field refinishing stone floors, then I started a distribution company that sells all the equipment and trains contractors how to do this.

    I actually bought a PE bending tool. When I first saw these, I though it was a gimmick, but they really do make a huge difference. 
    I bought a different brand, but this is where I first saw them: http://thesmallshop.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2&products_id=9

    The Brembo logo had 8 pieces, one piece for each side of the rotors. It was the rotor faces that they shorted, they only included enough rotor faces to do one side of each rotor. For this build, it wouldn't work because I am displaying it with wheels and rear engine cover off. The Brembo logos weren't etched all the way through either, just recessed, so a dilute paint flowed right in there nicely.

    Kit exhaust with molded in springs does not look good. 


     
    Turned some aluminum in the Dremel

    From bottom to top: kit part, aluminum, aluminum after polishing


    Got some motorcycle exhaust springs, this will look so much better

     

     
    SMS Super Detail turned inner and outer hubs, aluminum shaft 

    I may blacken or paint the hubs

     
    Kit oil reservoir cap compare to SMS Super Detail turned cap and PE cover

     
    That's it for now.

    Here's what I did with the seat





     
    Engine stuff. 
    Mockup to check fit




    I want to display the car on the race jacks, so I am checking the fit for rod







     
    Removed some of the molded in detail



     
    Separated the tank and jack

    Jack will be part of tank

    Here's a mockup with the turned jack from the SMS Super Detail set

    I'm kind of jumping around on this one. 
    Cup holder detail. Bracket is from SMS set, weld lines from Top Studio, Aluminum tube

     
    A little tricky, but it came together nicely. 



     
    Kit interior piece with SMS PE pieces

    this will be a slow build, I don't get much time any more. I started this a month or two ago, and a week or so ago, I came across a member selling the SMS Super Detail set and I jumped on it. 
    I am using the SMS Super Detail turned parts, SMS PE set and the Hobby Design McLaren F1 GTR brake set, which uses the same brakes and hubs as the 911 GT1.






    The Hobby Design brakes are a lot bigger than the kit brakes, but still kit inside the wheel just fine.


    I don't know why HD only includes enough PE brake faces to do 2 rotors, so I decided to not use them and paint the rotors a carbon color. 
    PE Brembo faces

    nice crisp detail

    I nipped off the molded in bleeder detail


    Made the crossover tube

    Added the .5mm brass nuts from Scale Hardware

    Not too difficult to make 1, but making 4 look the same is time consuming


    Mockup with the PE face that I didn't end up using

    I decided to go one step further and add RB Motion bleeders. Tiny



    Painted the calipers Brembo Gold from Gravity Colors, then diluted some Tamiya red acrylic to paint the Brembo letters

    Painted the hubs Alclad II Pale Gold. Now comes the fun part, adding all the PE bold heads

    Before & After

    A million years later

    Rotors were painted with Model Master Metalizer (I forget color) then gently rubbed with a dense cotton swab for contrast
    Before & after. Not a huge difference, but enough

    Looks great when done



    More to come

  8. Quick GMC added a post in a topic 88 Times a Day....Smartphones   

    I guarantee I am somewhere around 200 or more. I own my own business and people text orders, and through Facebook messenger and email, and my website, etc. all through my phone. I work from an office with a desktop, but I am in and out a lot. 
    If I could ditch the smartphone, I would, but it would be a major negative impact on my income

    I have those too. they aren't the right size

    I love those Mustangs, I have the 7-11 one. I have been trying to find some turned wheels, or even photo etch wheel centers with no luck, they are odd sizes. i believe those Mustangs used 18" in the rear and 15" in front.

    no it's not. 
  12. Quick GMC added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    I haven't completed a single bike yet. I started one Tamiya kit, but I really love the older bikes and the Rothmans livery, so I had to have this. 
    From what I have heard, they are every bit as good as the Tamiya kits, and this is new tooling, so it should be pretty nice. 
    I should do a review, but don't know where to put it since they don't allow bikes on here.

    this post is 6 years old. 
  15. Quick GMC added a post in a topic Hobby Shops Near Inglewood/Denver CO?   

    I went to Colpar Hobby Town, then they advised to go to the other Colpar store since they had a lot more plastic. What an awesome hobby shop. So much stuff I wanted to buy. I got a bunch of Acrylic washes and pigments and some detail stuff, but no kits. I stuck to what I could fit in my suitcase on the way back. they have some incredible stuff though. Huge military water stuff and armored kits that are really intriguing. 
    Their bigger store sells online, so I will probably be ordering some stuff from them in the future.
