    Nice Job!
    How were you able to take the model apart? I have a model of the first car I ever owned that I would like to finish. It scares me to death thinking about how to get the body off. It was built well over 45 years ago.
    Any Ideas?

    Thanks I will try Testors Dull coat. I wasn't sure it would work on Acrylics.

    Need Help with Acrylics
    A while back it was noted by Chris Chapmen that MOP AND SHINE. No longer shone like it used to. I did not realize this and bought 2 liters of the stuff. Had a model all painted and ready for the shine. Wrong! Did not work just as Chris said. So I stripped it off and started over found the right product and was back in business. Turned out well but was double the work.
    I am now working on another car but I don't want a shine I want a flat looking paint somewhat like a primer. Would the not so shiny mop and shine work for this and give my some added hardness to the paint?
    In order to get a flat with Acrylics what would you do?
    Acrylics just are not tough enough to leave without some sort of coating.

    I have a Question
    Happy New Year everybody!
    I need a little help with finding a new airbrush.
    First off I have a siphon type that was OK for enamel paint. I have just started to use acrylic paint and I really don't like the results I am getting.
    I would like to upgrade my airbrush to gravity feed and I need some help here.

    Because I don't live very close to a hobby shop I will be shopping on Amazon.ca
    Would you be so kind as to help me select a decent Airbrush off Amazon.ca

    I am on a very limited budget.
    Thanks everybody!

    Thanks for the replies I will be doing as a lot of you have suggested. This is going to take some time just to figure out what am going to do to make it realistic. And yes it must be spotless which makes it extra hard not to look toy like. I never thought of Nascar shop for a search but will get right on it. Thanks!

    It would be around the Dale Ernhart era.

    Looks like it might be something special. When this truck is finished what is the intended purpose? I know with the rear fenders it won't be off road.

    You are correct Brett. My mistake!

    Found a Dollar Tree about 50 miles away. I bought the only two bottles of mop and shine they had. Don't laugh but this has be a hunt of mass proportion.
    I dipped a painted part in the bottle and let it dry. I like the results but tomorrow the real test. I have a body to paint from my spare parts bin. I will post a picture later.
