    This is one of those designs that makes me think"if this was the best design that had...what in the check did they throw out?"

    A very likable build and well done in the that rusty and crusty style.nice to see this classic kit done so well.

    Great high def reference photos if nothing else.Thanks for sharing.

    John you are a brave man to attempt such a complicated body modification on your fourth model.That rear deck replacement is not easy task no matter how you do it.It would be cool to build it in  low rider style with an extended rear bumper shelf and a old school continental kit.

    I hope you are planning on displaying this over a mirrored surface at some point.It would be a shame to see this in person and not be able to view all the awsome undercarriage work.Really a benchmark project sure to inspire a lot of builders to do similar projects.

    Very cool project done in the finest tradition of all things NNL!If you know anyone headed to our Ohio NNL Nationals in October please consider sending(or even better yet bringing it) so we can all see it in person.Thanks for sharing !!

    Thanks Bill,Somewhere along the line this topic made an unplanned left turn.When I started out I was simply looking for a way to utilize the aluminum plate I already had on hand.That plate has a stubborn surface coating on both sides not allowing me to polish it the way I wanted.As always all those responding are offering every helpful suggestion they can including the choices of abandoning the printer's plate for optional material choices.I still have not decided what I am going to do.I have constructed a simple tear drop trailer as a practice platform for attaching some aluminum plate to see how it looks before moving on to a much more complicated project which will require traingluar shaped and curved segments to form it's outer shell.That is a 1936 Airstream Clipper travel trailer.
      I have a 1935 Airstream Torpedo trailer ready to paint that's complicated shape does not lend itself to the application of any real metal plate at all.That one will be painted MM aluminum plate metalizer.

    How would an average person annual aluminum?
  10. misterNNL added a post in a topic Testors Metalizer Question   

    What brand and color of rattle can primer would you recommend for under the metalizer aluminum plate?
  11. misterNNL added a post in a topic Printers plate developer   

    I followed one of the shim stock links and found thickness from .0001(!) and up but he aluminum stock is listed as"full hard"which is what shim stock is all about anyway being used to either increase or decrease the clearance between metal surfaces.The full hard would be impossible for me to work with for creating tapered and curved segments for the end shells of Airstream style trailers.Some builders can probably pull that off I'm sure,but not me.

    Let's hope the complainers are the minority.They have every right to not buy the kit as far as I'm concerned.Maybe that will make them happy.

    Thanks Andy,I had almost forgotten about soda can stock.There are several finished models in my collection from the 1960's with opened doors that are hanging on pop can hinges.That stuff is just flexible enough for me to bump the door and not break the whole door off.

    Yesterday I got a really great license plate for my collection.It is a 5" x 8" porcelin  1908 plate issued by the city of Columbus,Ohio.Only a handful of cities were doing this as the the state of Ohio did not require plates at that point.The plate is in exceptional condition considering that is 108 years old.

    And the information and helpful suggestions keep on coming.Thanks to everyone responding!
