    Looks promising, nice black paint.  Waiting for more updates.

    Really nice looking 57, especially like the color scheme.  AMT had a '55 Sedan kit and Revell offered a '56 DelRay sedan, don't know how readily available they are at the present, both were released 15 or more years ago.

    One question and one comment. 
    COMMENT: Just to be sure everyone understands the idea of using warm water: DO NOT place the can of paint into a pan of boiling water on a stove.  Use either hot tap water or very hot water off the stove.
    QUESTION:  I have been trying to use a Duplicolor red and can not get a decent paint job.  It looks too thick and almost toyish.  I have tried different distances, speeds, and angles, any other suggestions?

    Cool build and definitely green.  I like what you have done with this one.

    If you have a big box craft store (Hobby Lobby, Michael's, A, C, Moore, etc.) check out the jewelry making aisle.  They have different sizes of braided cords which make excellent hoses, and they are available in different sizes.  Sometimes WalMart has it in their craft section.

    Bugs are such fun to drive.  Not a whole lot of neck-snapping power to speak of, but pure fun.  Just wondering if the dog is getting ready or has already washed your tires?

    Let me rephrase that, it works very well on most paints, but not all.

    This stuff works very well.  I have been using it for a couple of years.

    I stopped by my local HL this morning and they had a few marked down, the Surf Buggy, Soapy Sales F/C, and one other for $10.79, had the Lawman Plymouth for $14.99.  Didn't buy any of them, cause I had stopped by Ollie's earlier and spent my budget.  Seems the shelves were quite full of some newer releases.

    If you could find one of these, bet it would cost almost as much as a 1:1  Love that coupe body.

    If that is the same molding as in the 69 Galaxie "some work" is being overly kind.
  12. TarheelRick added a post in a topic Ghost Flames   

    Those are some good thoughts.  Just had a brainstorm, why don't I paint an old body with solid colors and see what works.

    Hmmm, 48 views and no responses.  Does that mean in order to do ghost flames I will need to use a candy color/

    Ghost Flames
    What is the procedure for painting ghost flames when not using candy colors?
