    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    Would never thought that it was your first fade.  Can't wait to see what you will do with more experience.

    Had the same thing happen to my 1mm.  Haven't tried to clean it yet tho.

    I started one several years ago.  If all goes as planned, should be done in Jan. 2018.  I want to finish my Bugs Buggy first.

    Got this Falcon at a yard sale a few weeks ago for $1.  The main reason is that my late sister had a white one.  Used to listen to the Eagles on the 8track.  The second reason is that I can't remember the last time I found any kits at a yard sale or thrift market so I jumped at the chance.  I think the builders must get buried with their kits around here.  She's a little warped and the chassis is snapped in two.  I might fix it up.

    Anyone know where I can get a drive in diner tray in 1/25 scale?  No luck at the craft store or online.

    Not a bad kit overall. Don't usually build showroom stock.  First time BMFing the scripts and emblems, painting, then scraping.  Probably the last time.  The only real prob I had was the chassis was warped.  Had to cut off the front and rear valences and mount separately.  First time using the chrome pen too.  The chrome decided to come out of the side more than the tip.  At first, I used tape as a mask, but used brushing mask for the windshield.  When I took off the masking with a qtip, it dulled the chrome a bit.  Tried to paint the whitewalls but they weren't molded very well, so I went with blackwalls.

    The first Hot Rod movie they showed last night was a Monogram Films production.  I wonder if it's related to the model company.

    Foiling the rocker panel isn't wrong. Build it your way.

    It's on my to-to list. And, yes, have plans for new treads.  Nice build-up Dan!
