  1. Krylon Premium Original Chrome

    The cap on the Krylon can is bright and shiny...can't say the same for the spoon (false advertising?).
  2. Olds 67 Cutlass, Lindberg, black

    Stellar build! Having owned several 1:1 cars with vinyl tops from that era, I tried my best to have a semi-gloss on the tops, as opposed to a flat finish...something to consider.
  3. 1974 Plymouth Satellite "Sundance Special"

    Yeah, I was wondering where he got such a huge piece of wood for a display base! Outstanding job on the wheel covers, not only in the 3D printing, but the finish as well
  4. 1964 Chevy Impala SS

    I had a '64 SS in yellow, black interior, 327/300 hp with powerglide. Nice build! There are a couple things that could improve the accuracy.
  5. Bare metal foil and dull cote

    As a work-around (to avoid making aluminum too shiny)... Get a short length of plumber's Teflon tape (6" or so). Hold one end of the tape, lay the rest over the area to be buffed, and buff in one direction only, away from the end being held. If necessary, flip the tape around so you can burnish in the other direction. Thin aluminum foil can be used in the same fashion. Teflon tape and aluminum foil are very thin, allowing you get into the nooks and crannies. You also avoid contact between the buffing tool and the foil.
  6. Taillight Lens

    If you feel like shaping/sanding/polishing, go to the scene of an accident and pick some red plastic pieces...grab some amber while you're there.
  7. Bare metal foil and dull cote

    Be careful and don't overdo any buffing. Excess buffing will make the foil shiny.
  8. That might be a risky thing to do.
  9. 1967 Ford Galaxie XL, 1/30.

    What technique did you use when you were "just cutting 2 pieces of plastic" to get the nice round shapes? You make it sound so easy.
  10. GT-40

    Very well done, and just the right number of pictures. Too many posts have photos taken at (apparently) 10 degree rotations, and often have duplicates...nice job on the camera work!
  11. 1967 Ford Galaxie XL, 1/30.

    The dome light is a very nice touch. Not trying to hijack your thread, but there's another approach for dome/courtesy lights... http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/101871-dome-and-courtesy-lights/?tab=comments#comment-1423349
  12. 1/12 Tamiya Ferrari 312B

    Great looking model. The valve stems are a very nice touch. As a suggestion, you might want to consider darkening the insides of the exhaust pipes...it looks like the engine was never started or run.
  13. Perhaps if you post this in (or ask an Admin to move it to) the "Where Can I Get" forum...
  14. 1966 Nova Pro Touring

    Wow! Great execution. I'm surprised at that monster cowl (could you even see to drive on the street?) for a single 4bbl carb.
