  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.
  12. Might anyone know of a model kit that has a parachute similar to this?
  13. "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.
  14. Might anyone know if aftermarket 1:25 Moon Spinner Gas Caps are available?
  15. 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
  16. FYI for those you you following this thread. I found these at Harbor Freight. A big thank you George BoJaciuk.
  17. Thanks Rich. I didn't even know BIC disposable lighters have springs???????
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Pro Tech radiator hose is nice. However, it is smooth line. Does anyone make corrugated radiator hose?
