  1. CB anennas ?

    i just pick whatever size looks scale-like for the antenna that I want. A set of micro drills and a pin vise work great for drilling out the mounts.
  2. CB anennas ?

    I use music wire for the antenna and make the bases from small pieces of sprue. Chuck the sprue up in a Dremel or drill and turn it to size and shape using a new hobby knife blade. Drilling completely through the base allows the music wire to act as the mounting pin as well for greater strength.
  3. Truck Cab Building question-AMT Kits.

    Raw. unpainted pieces should glue up fine and be plenty strong. I would place a piece of wet/dry sandpaper on a flat smooth surface and true up the bottom of the cab first to provide a tight seam and flow liquid cement into the joint, if you are still concerned about strength, you could place a strip of thin plastic overlapping the joint on the inside but I don't think you would need it. The interior tub is tapered from top to bottom so there will be no stress of interference once assembled.
  4. The Revel 55 car has the trim molded separately. with a little persuasion it fit the contour of the bed sides and blended with the forward spear on the door
  5. Here is one that I did with a ZR-1 Corvette drivetrain and added 55 sedan side trim:

  12. Here is the new Centenial Edition Silverado. Been waiting for this since I purchased my 1:1 Silverado. This is resin cast with a simplified chassis but the detail and finish is stunning. there are no opening features. The interior would easily pass for 1:1 in photos. A little pricey but I’m glad that I grabbed one of the 999 made. www.gts-models.com
