  1. Ollie's strike again

    Just got back from the Olies in North Olmstead Ohio. Don't waste your time there. The only new thing they had that was not left over from months ago when I was last there was some Lindburg ships and the Kevin Harvick snap kit. What they did have was not much more than a couple dozen boxes of stuff too. Not worth the 20 minute drive... good news is that my wife did get some hair dye and we got a bag of candy.

  3. Great Dane Extendable Flatbed

    I just checked and it is already in stock at Hobbylinc https://www.hobbylinc.com/amt-great-dane-flat-bed-trailer-plastic-model-vehicle-kit-1:25-scale-1111
  4. I put dry wall mud down on a painted board, then painted it. After it dried I painted some white glue all over it and put some sand on it before it dried. I then sprayed the sand with "Auqa-net" hairspray so it would hold some of it peaks an valleys. in all it took about 4 days to do just the base. The truck was done in a similar fashion except I painted some mud paint under the glue. Wish i had a better way to create a "mud" effect rather than using the sand. Thanks
  5. Thanks Doc. I hope to take it with me next week to a show in Port Clinton OH. See what I can do with it there.
  6. I scored a second place at the county fair this past week with this one. I lost out to a really nice two -tone Revell Kenworth
  7. Great Dane Extendable Flatbed

    Does anybody know what is going on with this kit? Also can this kit be used for a standard flatbed? I have been looking for a regular flatbed, but don't want to pay $75 for it. Thanks
  8. Thank you for all your kind comments.
  9. I finally finished my Linburg Rammunition Monster Truck diorama. The kit was pretty easy and went together easily. This was my first model with a roll cage and fitting it together concerned me a bit, but it just slide together and required no cursing at all. What made it best was the $9.99 price tag from Olies. The crushed cars are my first also and it was also my first time spattering mud/sand. Thanks for looking

    Got the newest Ollie's email and this was in it. Guess I know where I am going tomorrow
  11. Let's see some police cars

    Nice Viper!! I have a kit sitting around and some left over Ohio State Patrol decals... I might just have to do one myself.
  12. UPDATE (4/22/18) I finally got my regulator hooked to the compressor and then the airbrush to that tonight. I took some tap water and ran it through the brush just as Don suggested. It seemed to work good with the plain water, but in my messy booth it was hard to tell so I added a bit of Vallejo rust color to the water to give it a bit of color. It seemed like there was a bit too much pressure in the brush. I lowered the regulator pressure a bit and it still seemed to be too much. My son heard the compressor running and came downstairs wanting to paint something with it. We found an old body and thinned some red enamel (1 to 1 ratio). He sprayed the body with the little bit of paint. It still seemed a bit thin to me, because at first it seemed to be creating small circles like the pressure was still too much, or the paint was thinned too much. As he moved back from the body (~6 inches) the rings became less noticeable, but the width of the spray increases significantly. Will getting a different tip for the airbrush fix this issue? Below are the results after I let the body dry.
  13. Modern Police Car Parts

    NYLIBUD: Good luck if you can get any sort of response from Conroyscruisers. The only response I ever got was on my inquire as to why it was taking over a month to get the decals I ordered and they responded in a very short nasty email about how it was not their fault it was bill bozo decals. Just my two cents Peter
  14. Modern Police Car Parts

    Does anyone know where I can get parts (light bar, push bar, interior divider, etc.) for police car models? I used Conroy's Cruises (http://www.conroyscruisers.com) in the past for Bilbozo decals, however I am unsure if they carry the modern police car light bars. I have sent emails and have received no responses from them, so I am unsure if they are around anymore. I want to make a Dodge Magnum K-9 car, but i am having trouble finding the special police car parts I need. Thanks
  15. Thanks Don. It is my first airbrush (single or double) action. Once I get a regulator/water trap for my compressor I might give your idea a try. Personally I have no expectations since it is my first. I hope it works good.
