    Take it back to the store and get a new one.

    I use air rifle ammunition (BBs) in the paint jars to facilitate mixing. You can get a lifetime supply (well, almost) at Walmart for just a few dollars.

    Plastic spoons are free at the Golden Arches.

    What will you be using for the real wood?
    Boxes of cigars have thin sheets of dark wood to separate the layers; you can also get 1/32" and 1/64" birch plywood at hobby/craft shops, but it will require staining.

    Also take a look at braided fishing leaders (at a sporting goods store).

    How about a coat of clear that has some Pearl-X mixed in?
  7. BigTallDad added a post in a topic Removing Metal Pins From JoHan Promos?   

    Use an electric drill with a bit that is about half the diameter of the head. Low speed is recommended, lest the plastic melt.
    Drill the head of the pin until you've reached the pin itself; the head should pop right off. Repeat for all pins.
    After all the heads are removed, the chassis should come off, leaving a portion of the pin protruding; grab that portion with some small vise-grips and twist the pin out.

    Everything is extremely smooth, especially the paint. Put that rascal with an appropriate back drop and it would look like a 1:1
    Great job!

    I'd think that fine thread (as in sewing) might also work.
    Soak it in white glue, press in place, and let it dry. Any smudges etc. can be removed with Windex and a Qtip.

    Excellent pictures; thank you for sharing them.
    Did you remove the bases on a couple of models? I remember one model had working lights, and the batteries/switch were located in the base.

    How do you glue/paint the tape? Most plumbing tape is Teflon, and not many things stick to Teflon.
  12. BigTallDad added a post in a topic Flexible ducts   

    Very nice looking ducts!
    If you wrap the wire around a threaded bolt, the threads will make the spacing even. After wrapping the wire, unscrew the bolt and proceed as usual.

    Uhhh, this is a thread regarding Toys R Us, not Kaybee, Playco, etc.
    The question regarding kits at Toys R Us has been answered. Thank you.

    Another approach (although very tedious) is wrap small gauge wire around the threads of a bolt, then wrap that assembly with wet paper. Just before the paper is dry, bend the assembly to the desired contour.

    Toys R Us
    Do they carry models? They just filed for bankruptcy and there might be some good deals to be had.
