    Looks like your patience passed the test. Very clean build. Good job!
  2. Liberty Walk R35 GTR .

    The Liberty Walk cars seem to have a love/hate relationship with car guys. I really like them. And I really like your version. I think it looks good without all the lettering you see on a lot of the real cars. Nice job!
  3. Woody

    Nice start on this car. I really like how the wood came out. Any pointers on how you did it?
  4. `62 Chevrolet Impala SS convertible

    Wow! that is really nice. Ive always liked these cars. You did a great job.
  5. I totally agree with unclescott "Don't let the internet trolls scare you away. Your reviews belong here. " I appreciate the effort you make. I have bought kits kits because of what you doing. Keep up the good work

    This is a really clean build. That color just makes it! Congrats
  7. Paint to thin

    I did shake the can for a minute or so, I also warmed the can in hot water for a couple of minutes, then shook it again. (this is my normal practice) I did this both when I was trying to spray from the rattle can and before decanting. I suspect that this is just a bad can of paint, as I have never seen this happen before. Im just trying to find a way to use the paint
  8. Paint to thin

    I sprayed it as thin as I possible could. The first coat barely colored the parts and yet it just ran down the edges. Ive never seen paint this thin
  9. I like the way it looks now. Thats a great patina look
  10. Paint to thin

    You learn something new every day, sometimes its actually useful I didnt know the skin would dissolve back to paint Thank you
  11. Paint to thin

    I thought about that but I was worried that the paint would "skin" or get chunks in it. Thanks for the help, Bill
  12. Toyota Chaser - One Week Build Challenge

    Nice job. You nailed the stance
  13. Perfect modelling day.

    Its zero here, with a 20mph wind. Shoveled a bit this morning and thats the last Im going out today. Already got a couple of hours at the model table
  14. I tried to paint a set of wheels with some Testors lacquer. Using my usual technique, the paint puddled in the low spots and the high spots looked like they had no paint. So I striped them, primed them, this time. And got the same result. I decanted some and tried air brushing several different parts, from my parts box. Thinking maybe the plastic of the wheels was the issue. Regardless of the pressure or amount of paint, I got the same thing. Is there a way to thicken the paint I have decanted? Maybe just a bad can of paint? I like the color, but right now, its completely useless. Any help would be appreciated
  15. lets do our own 36 coupe chop

    Yes, you do like to slice and dice, as you have shown in this and some of your other builds. I really like your work Keep them coming!
