    Has Anyone Assembled The Model Car Garage Brembo Calipers?
    I just saw that MCG has some PE calipers. I am having a hard time picturing the finished product. Has anyone worked with these yet? I love MCG stuff, but I hate that they don't show assembled pics of their miscellaneous stuff.

    Plum Island by Nelson DeMille. I read The Lion's Game in high school. He's my 3rd cousin twice removed or something like that. Never met him, but some of my family has talked to him. I decided to start at the beginning of the John Corey books, which are his main character series. If you like police detective/terrorist/dark humor action type of stuff, you will like these books.

    Thank you guys i really appreciate it. The wire for the fuel line is beading wire from michaels. I will check the size when I get home. I am out of town for a few days.

    Finally had some time to get a little bit done on this one. Had some paint issues, but got them all worked out. Had to sand a few areas and touch them up, then spray a couple more coats of clear to blend in. Worked out pretty good, but it was tricky.
    These pictures are pretty bad, from my cell phone, but I was excited that I got something done so I had to post. 
    Clear was 2 part clear from Gravity Colors. 1st time using 2 part, so it didn't go super smoothly, but I like it. I will be using it again. Sanded and polished with Tamiya compounds Used BMF, which I am getting better at, but still need a bit of practice. I am realizing that you get much better results by using a single piece, rather than doing it in sections. I am not going to remove the other pieces I did in sections. 
    I taped off next to the windows with Tamiya's new striping tape, this stuff is realy, REALLY good. It stays down well when taped on a radius. I taped them off so I could sand the trim smooth, this was the foil would lay down smoother. 
    anyway, this is it for now. 





    I couldn't help but put the body on to check out the stance

    If you can get something that works other than solder, I would definitely recommend it. All I had at the time was the solder and copper and I wanted the natural look and was too impatient to wait to go buy something else.

    I also emailed and received a prompt reply, and they have added the dimensions to the product pages. Bob beat me to it.

    Thanks, I'll check it out. 
  13. Quick GMC added a post in a topic Dilemma - What Color Cooling Fins on 427 Cobra   

    I would prefer body color, but i have had trouble with paint laying down nicely on metal parts before. Also, I have tried Tamiya metal primer, it all ends up thick, I want these to stay nice and crisp. 
     
    Any suggestions on painting PE pieces?

    Dilemma - What Color Cooling Fins on 427 Cobra
    I am in the middle of doing all the body work on a Revell Cobra 427. I am using the Hobby Designs Photo Etch set, but it is designed for the Fujimi kit, and EVERYTHING has to be modified to accomodate. In hindsight, I might have been better off just trying to open the plastic vents. However, I am here now. 
    My question is, would it be weird to leave the cooling fins bare metal? I want them to look nice and crisp, and in my previous experience, painting small PE pieces black hasn't looked great, and they are not reacting to blackening solution. The other option would be to do carbon fiber decals, but I don't want a modern look. 
    I am not going for any particular car, just clean detail. I will post a WIP when I have something worthy of showing. Right now it's just a bunch of fine tuning on the body to get everything to fit.
