  1. Hey everyone I want to build a Nova for buddy of mine wounder if anyone has these rims and possibly the rear set up for them I believe they came from a Chevelle kit , I have a complete garage kit (new) that has the lift and bunch of other tools willing to trade if you have those items here is a pic of what looking for. Thanks
  2. I also have microlux micro sander,wish i would have gotten a long time ago,dont let the size fool you this thing will burn right through the plastic if you stay in same spot or paper to course🤬
  3. I bought some of the revell paint recently and the stuff is REALLY thick seemed like a 50/50 MIX WAS STILL TO THICK TO SPRAY, but once got it thin enough to spray(used water) it sprayed GREAT,but in my gun it was REALLY hard to clean had to take apart and flush laq thinner through it good

    68 z28

    This was actually a fun model despite all the pointed out inacurte porprtions ,still may paint the black along the bottom,but this color at first looked ugly ,,,,but its growing on me🙂
  5. Snake the walmarts in my area no longer carry the primmer so if they do in your area better get all you can
  6. Ok everyone here is the amt 68z28,besides all the in acuracies😉 that been pointed out ,what do you think so far about color choice ,at first i thought oh my god that is hideus looking but once i sprayed the clear was like wow that really looked decent,,,,,ok question is should i go and put the black stripes on or leave off,,,, the trunk deck spoiler is NOT going on cause it no where near matching the contour of trunk and i AM NO good at so called body work😁 So wasnt sure if the stripes would look good or not ,searched google to see if there was a picture of one with strips and without spoiler, came up empty on that .i will paint the lower part below the molding black also.well hopefully the rest goes smoothly.also included the color ,if woundering what it is,,i know NOT many people on believe that craft paint makes good choice for bodys but hey it been working out great so far😀
  7. just testing see if photo shows,thought we used to have a section for testing ,if so mods please move to it
  8. Just finished this up ,SORRY all mopar fans tryed three times to do the wood grain interior,gave up said heck with it painted black, had issues with the rear tail lights fitting right, the frame was really bent badly ,and the hood was warped Really bad ,when i seen those issues i almost threw it in the round file cabinet ,but as expensive as models are now days ,i went ahead with it ,it looks like it going way in back of cabinet on bottom shelve 😃
  9. hey everyone can anyone point me in direction for plaststuc or evergreen for the right size or close to it by providing me the the item number,,,i have tried to call both manufactures but no one answering, this would be for 60s thru 70s 1/24 or 1/25 cars ,i have done the conversion thing but i keep screwing up when i look at the manufatures sizes trying to get it right ,,this is probably something simple im over looking ,i also did a search on here but came up empty on item numbers that were used ,i seen plenty of sizes people use but no item number to go with the size they use ,,,,,,, im basically wanting to back halve some cars with out having to buy a model to use part, i already built one but the pieces i have are to big ,but it did turn out great , and i didnt have the package so the size of them is unknown ,,,,but BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH it looks good just out of scale thanks bill
  10. Hey everyone im starting to have problems with bad cases of orange peel, i use duplicolor laq clear ,my base coat is great no orange peel until i apply clear coat, i use different color coat manufactures never used the same manufactures of color or clear ,never had problems mixing manufactures of clear and colors,if your wondering why i clear is because i have a habbit of sanding through color coat ,thats why i clear now. my room temp is 73degrees, 23 % humidity,i spray about 6inches from body ,i have tried different speeds at spraying different distances ,and im spraying out of can,,,i have an iwata gun and another one that has the bigger spray pattern that i seen here recomended,and i have two paasche h with #5 tips,,,,,,im afraid to use the spray guns cause i cant even get the can spray technique down . as i said im just starting to have these problems .never had them before useing the same clear, same technique , other then the room temp and humidy might vary very little, its getting so bad that im not wanting to spend that much time building because the rest of my builds are going beautiful until i get to the body painting, than it goes south. this used to be a hobby i loved for so many years but this body painting problem is driving me nuts.you can check out my gallery and see that for the most part they look ok to display ,,,,,but now i would be ashamed to post on here
