  1. There is a seller on eBay named redlinerestoration with some intriguing offerings. Wondered if anyone on the board has purchased his castings, and if so, what was quality
  2. Help with Buick Reatta Promo

    I tried to flex the "vent" windows to no avail. The way they are adjoined to the windshield makes for a very strong joint. I am happy to report that I was able to cut one vent window to free up one side of the windshield, which enabled to remove it. I had to solve this problem, as I have accumulated several of these Reattas with intent of modeling a convertible and making a full detail with engine eventually. Thanks for the suggestion, Mr. Geary
  3. I am working on a Buick Reatta promo with intent of creating a detailed curbside from it. I am struggling with getting the windshield out of the assembled body, as the way it's mounted with the "vent" windows lock it in place. Anybody ought there know how to get the glass out without cracking it?
  4. Hobby Shops in Fort Worth?

    Thanks Monty. I watched the video as you suggested; now I can't wait to get off work tomorrow so I can check the place out. I don't really need more kits, but I try not to let that fact get in the way of a good shopping trip.
  5. Hobby Shops in Fort Worth?

    i will be traveling to Fort Worth area, and wonder if there are any local hobby shops worth visiting for plastic kits. Online search didn't turn up much.
  6. Resin Casting Brake Rotors

    Thanks for the responses guys. I think I might try the washer route on this kit, since it's a snap kit. The pictures of the resin brakes look great, though. I will keep that in mind for my next detailed build.
  7. Thought I would try to resin cast some brake rotors for a PT Cruiser convertible I'm working on, as the wheels are open and absence of rotors is quite noticeable. I am planning to use a rotor from a 1998 Firebird kit as a master, and use a one piece mold. Looking for advice on how to mold the center hole open so that the rotor will slip over the wheel.
  8. Flashback: AMT Scirocco

    I spoke to the AMT rep in Toledo on October 10. Apparently VW took an extended period of time to finalize licensing on the Scirocco, but the issue was settled in early October. Per the rep, kit should be coming out some time around the first of the year.
