    I just bought a 200C with a V-6. It's a quick car. I did like the S but the wife liked the C

    New stuff can go also pretty quick. Just got my wife a 2015 Chrysler 200C (V6) . From roadtest info it is the equal of a '68 Camaro in 0-60 and 1/4 mile performance and it's basically a family car.

    Raw water cooled is easiest. Otherwise you have to have a way to vent a lot of air out of the engine compartment.
    BTW a really cool build.

    I bought my Mega-Millions ticket this afternoon. If I win I'm getting that done in 1:1

    I was thinking the same with wires going to the amps. I'll agree the guitars should be different too

    Garbage Truck by Monogram
    Doing the Monogram Garbage truck....Any suggestions as to colors of the band? Also looking to get "depth" on the figures I tried a light wash of black but it looked crappy. I do have earth toned chalk. Should I just use the next darkest color and hit them with Dullcote?
    Thanks for looking!

    He does have a point. I'm sure a $400 cocktail dress (with a designer tag) made in Honduras or China probably is close to that example.
    If it costs them 49ยข to make and they can sell them at $15.99 they will. The original point was a kit sells for not much more than the parts pack does. The parts pack was just wheels and tires, without the rest of the kit.

    Exactly what I was thinking

    Skin (flesh) tone paints?
    What particular colors are being used that come close to actual skin tones. I have to paint some figures for the Monogram Garbage truck (the rock trio) and wanted to be truer to what it should be as far as skin color and hair color.

  15. ratdoggy added a post in a topic what is flocking? help?   

    I've been looking for flocking to do my interiors and I'm coming up with (what seems to me anyway) is that it's not an everyday item at the hobby shops ( I could be wrong on this) I'm looking for a selection of the basic colors kind of like in a kit but not seeing it. Is there a basic starter kit out there?
