  1. Might anyone know of an aftermarket dealer who sells 1:25 scale rear window louvers for a 1974 Chevy Vega?
  2. Might anyone know of a model kit or an after market supplier that has 1:25 scale Inglewood white wall pie crust slicks?
  3. Tried using a permanent black Sharpie on a outside windshield gasket; it does not seem like the ink from the Sharpie will ever dry and will always smear if touched. Will it eventually dry? Thoughts please.
  4. Thanks for the kind words. The build from the Moebius Arnie Beswick Comet kit. The engine was taken from the Dyno Don Mercury Cyclone F/C kit with the Blower and blower hat from Calnaga Resin. The chassis, fire wall and dash were modified so the engine could be moved back to the interior. The engine cover (dog house) was made from Evergreen Styrene. The front suspension was taken from the AMT 55 Chevy Nomad kit. Front tires are from Speed City Resin. Front Wheels are from a Polar Lights F/C kit. Rear Slicks are from the Revell Miss Deal F/C kit. Rear Wheels are from Speed City Resin. Paint is Tamiya Clear Red over Testors Pure Gold. Decals are from PoleKat Decals. Will be more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about the build.
  5. Might anyone know what kind of magneto is found in the Polar Lights Funny Car kits?
  6. Have any of you tried Decal Fix by Acrylics Vaallejo to hide the edges on decal film once decals have been applied? If so, how do you like?
  7. if I may add my 2 cents to the conversation. I've noticed the Molotow finish eventually turns silver after time. It initially looks great eventually loosing it's luster.
  8. I think you are correct "Snake" , I plan on using Tamiya Clear/Kandy Red over Gold. Not sure what gold yet however. Thanks for your input.
  9. Building the iconic Jack Chrisman 1965 comet F/C. The Chrisman car was painted Metalflake brand Candy Red over Gold base. I believe they referred to the red as "Brick Red" and the base was standard Gold ground coat. Trying to find a Kandy Red that duplicates this color. Thoughts?
  10. Looking for a the paint color Kandy Brick Red. Anyone know where I might acquire? Thank you.
  11. Just Finished. Speed City Resin Body, Whoopie Kat Decals. Thanks for looking.
