    Padded Workbench
    Does anyone use a padded workbench  for final assembly, so as not to scratch the paint etc? If so, what material did you make it from? I have used paper towels only to find the imprint of the paper towel design on the roof of the model. Would appreciate input. Thanks.

    I have a 396 with a 4sp from Revell 67 Camaro and a 427 with a 4sp from a AMT  37 Chevy kit. In the past I have grafted engines to transmissions quite successfully. The 396 is bone stock. The 427 is a supercharged engine. Both assembled, complete. Yours for the asking.

    Model A Ford Wheels & Axle
    Restoring a glue bomb. I think it is a Revell or Monogram 1930-31 Model A Ford 2dr sedan. I need the 4 wire wheels for it (inner and outer), also the front axle. Can trade or purchase.
    I am in Thailand but have a  USA Shipping address.

    @ChrisBcritter: I ordered some of these and they work perfectly. I drilled a .040 hole and I soldered paperclip wire for a bracket. Painted the inside of a small headlight lens with amber fingernail polish. Glued small size headlight lens in place using clear 5 min epoxy. looks great. Thanks.
