  1. Not sure of the colors unless I look under my car. But that front subframe is bolted to the fire wall if I recall correctly
  2. And that's why I bought my 1:1 1962 instead of a 1963
  3. I got #211 and was just simply amazed. I think you guys have been reading my mind. As I've thought about going into my stash of old Car Model Mags and building a clone of something from 1964 or so Then I see the Buick modified that was done to replicate the box art All the while I've been building the '65 Fairlane that way Good job guys
  4. Well....I do have a turkey roasting pan in the fridge.......I wonder why? 🙂
  5. kruleworld...I'm guessing you're using heavier foil than the roll in my kitchen? Is that like the stuff in a restaurant "doggie bag"?
  6. Doing the Ford Fairlane "modified stocker" kit and want to put some "rubbing is racing" damage on it Any good tutorials?
  7. I was kind of not crazy about it but Ollies had it very cheap. I was thinking about how to do the flames for awhile and tried a couple things ..None worked decently until I had a eureka moment. They are Qtips.
  8. I would work on this and push it to the side and work on it some more.....Repeat again and again Detailed the engine a little bit. Had to make the scoop from scratch as it disappeared one day. Also first use of craft paints with the airbrush and using Pledge... Looks pretty good to me
  9. Just built one out of some scrap wood, An Ebay hot water heater power vent, a furnace filter, Amazon LED light and some PVC pipe. Probably have around $50 in it. The most expensive part was the bench it's on...We all know how expensive a couple of 2X4s are lately 🙂
  10. Does Atlantis have a actual store at their location? I'll be basically around the corner from them this weekend.
  11. Doing a Surfrod Stroker McGurk. Tried finding an enamel that had a skin tone for Stroker Some suggested acrylics as the local Hobby Lobby didn't have the Tamiya paint that was suggested. So I bought some craft ones...Now what? How would I thin it for my airbrush? Brush it on? I've brushed it on and it looks poopy Seems thinner for acrylics is kind of all over the place Done searches here but the hits on acrylic are rather large and can't find a tutorial
