    Looks like you've sanded through in a few spots, anyways. I say sand to plastic around it, Tenax inside and out, sand smooth, repaint.

    You should make a space for those tanks to go on the wall with chain around them - unchained tanks is an expensive OSHA infraction.

    I suppose that's because HobbySearch is in Japan, makes sense now.
     
    Reny's gets a lot of new stuff. The S&H Torino, Ford F-150 Ranger, Porsche 918, '66 Chevy pickup.... All around $16 each. Haven't bought anything online in a while because of them.

    The Nickey Camaro
    HobbySearch says it's coming in Late May. I've seen it at a local bargain wholesaler (Reny's) for $15. Anyone else seen it?

    Spaz Stix is a chrome spray paint.

    Stunning.
  7. chunkypeanutbutter added a post in a topic Hi from Eliot Maine   

    Welcome!
  8. chunkypeanutbutter added a post in a topic Is it just me ...   

    My father did model cars and trains, then went on to do stuff with real cars. He still builds trains (thousands of dollars worth) and I bought him a Tamiya V8 Opel kit last year.
     
    He bought me my first model, ech... maybe when I was six? Seven? We built it together, obviously. Twelvish years seems so far away.
    This was before the "participation awards" thing. I missed that by a few years. Thank god I missed Common Core and standards-based by a year. I like a little return on my work, though - don't we all? 
    Not to say I don't like criticism. I need a little. However, lately I've been building for me and haven't been posting anything I've been working on, mostly because I know I'm not doing carb linkages, I know I'm not doing distributor wiring, helll, sometimes I don't even put shocks in some of my models. I build models because I'm a dreamer. That's why I play Gran Turismo, or spend hours driving in GTA V - cars give me a rush. I'm dreaming now, dreaming to the future when I'll be financially stable enough to own every model I've built in 1:1 form.
    Basically, if any of us younger people want to build models, we will. I think I'm just reiterating that from others who have scribed posts before me, but it needs to be said.
    And don't sniff the glue.

    Very nice. Dad's got one in his '88 Ranger, same one from his '77 Mustang II. Very comfortable to one-hand drive with the great power steering.

    Grant 14" or 12" wheel?

    Works great. Thanks!

    So, just take a direct link from wherever and paste it? It's not working from my Photobucket....

    With a myriad of other projects going on, what's another?

     
    1996 Caprice as a starter. This was how I got it. Most likely, I'll change it to 4WD, but it might just be 2WD with sand paddles in the rear.
    As you can see, I started the sloppy openings on the rear wheels. I think I'll do big, ugly JC Whitney d-bag truck plastic arch extensions.

    You could tape the rim, maybe double-layered, and use steel wool to remove the inner chrome.

    Oh, geez...
     
    $50 is somewhere I rarely go for a single kit, but the Escort is such a beautiful machine...
