      Skip Samples was a credit to our hobby.  He is certainly missed.

      I did the same thing as you.  I placed an order for a Trans Body on May 20th through PAY Pal via their web site.   A short time after I placed the order, I saw their web site was closed down.  My money was withdrawn from my account.   I knew Paul was in bad health however, I thought things were getting better.  I wrote to them about my order and the closure of their web site.   They did reply and told me about Paul's health and to be patient as they were trying to do their best to fill previous orders.   My thoughts go out to Paul.

      The kit is the Revell Angila Kit with a modified front and rear suspension.  The engine, valve covers, breathers, blower, blower hat, are from my parts box.  The headers and front wheels are from the Malco Gasser kit.  Rear wheels and front tires are from Speed City Resin.  Rear slicks are from the Revell Austin Gasser kit.  Rear push bar is from the Revell SWC Willys kit. Wheelie bar is scratch built. Paint is Duplicolor Inferno Red Metallic over a silver base followed by Tamiya clear red.  Decals are from PoleCat decals, Joe Curtis and from the Revell Anglia kit.  Not sure what what you mean "WIP Pics"?  Let me know if you would like more info.

    Open resin parachute?
     Contemplating building a 1/25 scale funny car with the parachute opened out the back.  Have the parachute from the AMT Blue Max  F/C Mustang kit.  However, the parachute in the kit is not opened.  Might anyone know if a 1/25 opened resin parachute is available in kit form or from a resin caster?   Thanks.

    Oh no Joe!!!!!  All that work down the drain not including the cost of the resin and paint.   However, you are now a better modeler as a result.

      I have good news to report that I have remedied my rubbery resin body caused by stripping the paint with Scale Coat.  This is how I did it:
      After washing and cleaning the body with dish soap and water; I put it in a dehydrator for 2 days.  I then lightly sanded it  Then applied 2 coats of Aluminum plate METALIZER .  Then it was put back in the dehydrator overnight.  The body now seems usable and is ready for paint.

    Interesting Ron.  Hoping I get some more feed back.

    Rubbery resin from paint remover?
      I put an old painted resin body in Scale Coat to remove the paint.  Unfortunately, I left the resin body in too long.  The paint did come off.  However, the body now has a rubbery pliable texture to it.  It seems as if I could use for a build though.   Not sure if it will hold paint?   And, will the resin body become more rubbery with time?  Thought maybe if I shot it with Metalizer it might firm it up a bit? Or, should I just "chuck It"?  Any help.
