  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. Looking for a the paint color Kandy Brick Red. Anyone know where I might acquire? Thank you.
  4. Just Finished. Speed City Resin Body, Whoopie Kat Decals. Thanks for looking.
  5. Might anyone know of a model kit that has a parachute similar to this?
  6. "The Hill-Zartman Willys was always called the Filthy Forty, The name was mostly the result of what happened at the 1962 Nationals when Charlie Hill deliberately put the car into the middle of a muddy field to keep onlookers away, and never bothered to wash the car prior to eliminations " - Gasser Wars. This is my rendition of this iconic car.
  7. Might anyone know if aftermarket 1:25 Moon Spinner Gas Caps are available?
  8. Just finished. I was infatuated with this car as a very young lad. It was a local east coast D/Gasser in the sixties. It was a moose of a car. However, it ran like a deer. The body is a rare Good Stuff resin 38 Chevy resin body combined with an AMT 37 Chevy Gasser kit. The paint is 1954 Ford Golden Rod Yellow from MCW Auto Finishes. The decals are from Pole Kat decals. Hope you like
  9. FYI for those you you following this thread. I found these at Harbor Freight. A big thank you George BoJaciuk.
  10. Thanks Rich. I didn't even know BIC disposable lighters have springs???????
  11. I think wrapping it with wire might be the way to go. I do like George B's idea of a spring and shrink wrap. However, I need to find a miniature spring to do this. Springs from a ball point pen are a bit too big. Checking around to see if I can find smaller springs????? Not sure where to find these smaller springs.
  12. Might anyone know if any after market dealers sell 1:25 scale old time corrugated radiator hose (with the ridges)? I know many deallers sell smooth radiator/coolent hose. Looking for the ridges however.
  13. Pro Tech radiator hose is nice. However, it is smooth line. Does anyone make corrugated radiator hose?
