    You can expect outstanding quality and detail from any of the products you buy from Norm.His castings are nearly flash free and the scale realism is very accurate.

    Finally,someone has built something really cool from an (IMHO) otherwise useless kit.Very nicely done with a great stance,beautiful details and very well photographed.Thanks for sharing.

    Ice to see someone actually building this kit.I see very few of these finished  on display anywhere.Also be sure to keep us in the loop when that six cyl powered hot rod makes it to your bench.

    Your wood body is a real work of art on the Woodside. I would also like to know where you sourced that 12 cup flat head engine.

    I am glad to see you building a classic vendor's truck based on the '23 kit.In the'40' s there was one in my home town here I spent a lot of my weekly allowance money.Another classic model truck under way by one if my favorite builders.Bag me up some with extra butter and salt!Looking forward to watching this one develop under your masterful touch.

    The first set of photos looks like they sectioned a '46 Chevy.Thanks for posting this.I have run across a number of those old tutorials that can be very helpful to today's modelers including chopping those swoopy 40's tops.

    Clear over Spaz Stix.
    I am rounding third and headed for home on my scratch built 1/25 1940's era Airfloat travel trailer project.After a lot of research and careful measuring it's time to paint.I decided to go for a sort of polished bare metal finish so I am using the Spaz Stix ultimate chrome paint in rattle cans.I found this in a hobby shop that carrys a lot of RC stuff.The base Is their# 10209 ultimate black backer and the finish coat is # 10009 mirror chrome.Base dried quickly in today's 75 degree weather.Top coat went on without any disasters as well.Then being unsure as to wether the top color would finger print I unfortunately decided to clear coat it with Testors # 1261 gloss clear.After the first coat I wished I hadn't done that.The clear actually dulled the surface making it look like just any other silver paint job.
    I repainted it starting with the black backer then the mirror top and all looks like was intended to look.My paint is Not a mirror finish as there was no way to create a super smooth surface with ribbed side panels and 850 rivets showing but overall I am pleased.
    My whole point here is to caution other builders to think twice before clear coating this product.
