  1. Just getting started airbrushing and saw where some guys had small parts on the end of little wooden sticks to airbrush. Do y’all glue them on with shoe glue or use some type of putty or what? Are the sticks bamboo skewers from the grocery store? Any help appreciated. Thanks
  2. Just starting to build a little bit again. I have a bunch of old Model Master paints that I’d like to use with my new Badger airbrush. What is the best thing to thin these enamels with to paint small parts? I assume lacquer thinner shouldn’t be used with enamels? Thanks
  3. So now that the Salvino’s Chase Elliot kit is out, I’m looking for tips, tricks, ideas, and reference photos to start my build. Has anyone else started on one? If so, any issues to look out for? I mainly build older NASCAR cars, so what color is correct for the chassis as they appear a off-white/light grey? What color is the back shelf under the back windshield, grey or black? Correct colors for transaxle, shocks, seat, etc? Any reference pics for interior, engine, suspension? Really looking forward to these kits being a possible resurgence in NASCAR modeling! Any input appreciated! Thanks, Jed
  4. I just saw where the Chase Elliott kit was available for purchase on Salvino’s site. I placed my order for 3 kits. It says available late March. Does this mean they are shipping them now!?! Has anyone seen these in the flesh? How was the first Next Gen kits? Any input appreciated. Thanks
  5. So I’ve been hearing rumors of Salvino’s JR models may be doing Chase Elliott’s 2021 Cup Series Championship Napa Camaro. Has anyone heard anything about this? If so, like any idea of when it may be coming? Thanks, Jed
  6. That is one beautiful model of my favorite driver!
  7. So I was just wondering if anyone had heard if any company or cottage industry company was doing a model of the current Cup cars? I’d really like to do a current Chevy Camaro, especially a Chase Elliott one! Any tips appreciated. Thanks, Jed
  8. Hey, I’m kinda getting back into building models and had a question about building an ‘80s chassis and roll cage. I am working on an Monogram ‘85 Elliott Coors T-Bird and was needing some tips on the best way to paint a roll cage and chassis. Do you assemble the roll cage to the chassis and then paint it or paint the pieces separately and then try to glue them together? Any help appreciated, Jed
  9. So I recently bought a vintage 1985 Coors NASCAR Thunderbird that I just noticed the body was slightly warped on. The body has a slight 'twist' and the right front and left rear fenders are higher that the other diagonal fenders. They are off around 1/8". What is the best way to correct this? I assume I'll need to gently heat the body and slowly twist the opposite direction. I don't want to ruin this body so any help appreciated. Thanks, Jed
  10. Thank you for the help but I can’t see the pics. Can anyone else?
  11. Hey, I’m getting started on Bill Elliott’s 1985 Coors T-Bird and would love any engine pics or any other reference photo’s y’all might know of. Please, any help on my quest for as accurate a model as is reasonably possible.
