  1. Revell 49 Merc part

    I am looking for the tail lights from Revell 49 Mercury coupe. These are not stock Mercury, but resemble the 49-50 Lincoln tail light, as pictured. I believe they are in Kit 85-2860, part number 103 R/H & 104 L/H. Not sure if the lenses are separate or built in. If separate I need the lenses also. I show I am in Thailand but have an American shipping address for ease of shipping. Thank you.

  5. Russian Car

    Has anyone seen this car in 1/24 1/25? I think Russian called a GAZ 11-73. I can find it in 1/43. But once I saw it advertised in 1/24. Maybe a typo.

    Love to see the 4doors. Any make. I would really like some 1930-40's 4 doors. I built a resin bodied 41 Ford 4 dr. Used a resin body from a 1948 with the front group from a 41 woody. was both 1/25 scale but the resin body was a full 1/8 in wider than the front group. had to some cutting and glueing and bondo and....
  9. I have acquired 56/57 Lincoln Continental Mark II promo car. It needs paint stripper. I usually use brake fluid. Is that safe to use in that era promo car? If not, what should I use? Thanks.

    Thanks for all the replies and advice. Maybe time to get the sandpaper out.
  11. Paint Stripper for a Promo Car

    I guess we still don't know. Castrol Super Clean is not available where I live (Thailand). I can get sodium hydroxide (lye), but now am afraid to use that. They are made from acetate plastic? I'll have to try to research that. Thanks for all the replies and open to more.

  13. Model cars and Bodybuilding

    My fore fingers are so strong after years of this hobby. I'm proud of myself. Used to be I would get sand kicked in my wrists...But now those bullies leave me alone when they see my forefingers.
  14. Now Here's an Idea

    I think this is a really cool build. Something similar might be done in plastic. https://www.rodauthority.com/news/swell-longroof-rhd-1962-kustom-jeep-from-down-under/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=swell-longroof-rhd-1962-kustom-jeep-from-down-under

  17. Terrible Kits You Love!

    My favorite one to hate is the 1948 Lincoln Continental Lindberg/ I forget who originally made it. So damned hard to build, but so beautiful when finished. I've done 2 of them and if my blood pressure ever returns to normal I will try another.

  21. PDMC Route 66 Club Build

    Outstanding. Having driven the entire length of RT 66 once and also parts of it many times over, I really appreciate this. Would love to have that diorama, but would have to use all 3 bedrooms to house it and the wife complains so when I ask her to sleep on the porch.
