  4. T/A Challenger

    Thanks everyone
  5. Yes that is how it sits done nothing to suspension
  6. not much to look at ,sorry but here it is still undecided about the color want to keep it simple, the cab inside will be two tone , dark brown ,and a light tan,didnt think i would like this kit but its kinda growing on me ,surprised the engine was that detailed.
  7. T/A Challenger

    Boy here is an old one i did years ago,, was scheduled to go into the round file cabinet ,the decals on this thing wrinkled up big time ,got frustrated and finished it put back in box where it stayed for long time . tech question for you camera guys,any idea why im getting color shift when i open raw files in adobe to do any adjustments or do none at all, and when it go to editor mode it changes drastically ,,,,,,strange thing is it is ONLY doing when i photograph the models,can take pictures of anything else and there is no color shift
  8. 64 dodge 330 super stock

    Hey Steve ,,,no harm done,,,i will admit im one to build pretty much box stock MOST of time with out research ,and most of time I build with no specific goal lots of times I will be working on one part of model then change my BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH mind about something else on model and total go in different direction with it . AND to be honest I really didn't have ANY intentions on posting ANY of my finished builds because of the caliber of builders on here,BUT I love Photography and thought give it a try,so im getting just as much enjoyment trying to photograph the models Bill
  9. 64 dodge 330 super stock

    Ok about the side mouldings I did not do any research but after the fact I did look at the REAL CARS I see what you mean (it is higher up on fender on model)so I checked ALL the models and they are all the SAME way as this model, I did buy them all at Ollies I bought 5 of them,i wounder if that's why they were so cheap because it was a defect ????? and the more experience modelers may have been able to fix it im not going to try I don't have the patients to try to modify models since they are expensive to begin with . so I got 4 more to continue on with later on ,,all in all this kit was fun and went together with NO fitment issues anywhere,,,just wish It came with the dog dish caps ,,oh well looks like I will be casting me some more dog dishes,,,really liked that look
  10. 64 dodge 330 super stock

    Well here is a BIG screw up ,,,,tryed my first darkening the door panels lines and trunk,,sorry guys any suggestions ??? was going to start over but said heck with it ,,,will just go ALL the way in back of cabinet,,also for a first ,,tryed that double faced tape someone mentioned on here for windshield works great also used it for the hood scoop also front bumber, man this stuff is STICKY ,,,SO THANKS for whom ever suggested it
  11. Hey snake I see want to go into the craft paint ,,check my post I don't know how to link it ,but I have picture of the exact stuff I use,,it is a little expensive but the stuff goes a long way, I have tried the plain water for thinner but ended in a disaster, I love that cheap stuff I use it on everything including bodies,for me it was so nice to get away from all the smelly stuff,,and since its water based I use a hair dryer to dry the part and don't have to wait,,think the key is spraying LIGHT coats until coverage is what you looking for,,alot of people say whats the purpose if it takes longer to spray why not just use our regular model paints with less coats, thanks to that fact it don't stink I really enjoy modeling again,not to mention EASY cleanup,,,,,,It just takes patients and learning something new and a procedure that works for you.anyway sorry for long post hope you get the hang of it Bill
  12. Can anybody HELP

    Hey everyone thanks for the offers ,,but I found it ,,,,,of all places It was stuck between the curtains which is about 12 feet behind my bench,,,decided to open window last night to let nice breeze in and PLUNK it hit the floor ,at that point all I could do was just shake my head in disbelief Thanks Bill
  13. Can anybody HELP

    Hey everyone ,wondering if anyone out there has a "steel Wheel" from the linburg 64 dodge either the one with the yellow box art or the white one with the red strips,,,,i am completely done with model just need rim,,,,,,,in case your wondering what happened to it,,,,,well lets just say it vanished ,it was in a alligator clip ready to paint,i bumped it ,it went 'PING' and haven't found it been looking for 3 days,wife thought I have gone mad or something,tore apart whole room,you would have thought it was a crime scene,NOBODY has been allowed in there since,i have checked ALL the spare rims I have and everything is revel or monogram and NONE of the rims will fit the linburg kit Thanks Bill
  14. mustang gt 350

    here is a older kit think it was the hurst kit??? but anyway this is the wifes favorite car and color ,,so she painted it and applyed the decals ,and i finished it up
  15. Well guys here is another update on the said compressor ,been almost two years ,happy to say compressor is still working like a champ,and let me tell you I use the BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH out of this thing,since I got it I will spray just about everything for models, even small items,i think the reason is cause it is SO QUITE,and no I don't work for them just a users honest opinion,so would I buy another one ? wouldn't even have to think twice ,you bet, but I don't see anything happening to this one any time soon
