      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    I just bought this kit I didn't check to see if the body was warped. I'll have to do that later but so far I am a little disappointed with the body panel lines being so shallow. Granted they could be scribed deeper but for the price of the kit no one should have to. I have the Chrysler 300 and Hudson kits they are very nice so comparing those to the Belvedere kit I feel let down by the body from this kit. I just hope its not warped.

    I have found that if you apply the primer in heavy coats you will get cracking or crazing. If you want to try to do it again apply lighter coats and hopefully that will help. I've sent a UPC label a couple of times for new bodies and parts and yeah it can take some time to get the part but give it a try if you want. They send the replacements free of charge so there is no risk invovled.

    I haven't been doing much work at the bench lately and this project has been sitting for a while. I started getting the itch again to do some building so got back to working on this again not much is done. Before the cold weather started and I took a little brake I was able to get the body painted. The past couple of nights I been sanding and polishing it. For my first black paint job it came out pretty good not perfect but I think acceptable. Thought I share a couple of pics, let me know what you think. Thanks.

    Was searching around of some images of cars and saw this and thought this would make a cool kit and its something different. I am not sure if it would be a big seller or if it would catch anyone's attention but I like it.

    You are doing some great work I really like the color. Nice detail on the engine can't wait to see more.

    It's been slow going. I'm not able to get too much bench time. Much of my time is spent with my kids so maybe one or two hours during the week after they go to bed. It is still in the mock up stages but I did finish setting the stance that I wanted. Next I'll start working on the engine but for now here are some pics of what I got. Not a lot of progress but a little something is better than nothing. Also going to try to open up the grill so I was thinking the best and fastest way would be with a dremmel. It will be my first time attempting this so any tips are appreciated.

    Thanks for the tips guys. Looks like I have a few options so I think I will try them out before I paint the body. The other day I was at Hobby Lobby and saw that there was a can of black lacquer from testors has any one ever used that to paint any of there models. I was wondering if there was a difference between Tamiya and Testors paint systems. I would like to use a lacquer based paint system enamel takes too long to cure and I don't think I ever had result that I was happy with when using enamel paints

    Nicely done. I always enjoy seeing this kit when its complete. One of my favorite 50's style cars. Good job.

    This is going to be tribute build and birthday gift of a 69 Camaro SS that my brother restored about twenty years ago. This is the REVELL 69 z/28 kit. I'm think that I will replace the 302 with a 427 from the COPO kit. The color of his Camaro was black exterior on black interior. This will be my first time painting black so wish me luck cause I know its a tuff color. Right now not much is done, I am just in the mock up stage but this is the look I want to achieve. It will be mostly out of box stock except for the tires and wires.

    Thanks, that was the first build I ever sanded and polished. Hope it helps you with your build in some way. As I said before your looks really good. I wouldn't worry too much about the imperfections. I think its show worthy.

    Sorry, the computer I was using wasn't so I was having some technical difficulty. I emailed the pics to you cause I didn't want to steal your post.
