  2. Ken Kitchen added a post in a topic 1957 Ford questions re Revell and AMT kits   

    I wrote an article for MCM on the cars of Thunderroad. Terry Jessee and I collaborated on this very conversion. I don't remember the exact issue but it was at the end of 2015.

    Wow, talk about art imitating life. Here's my 1:1 46 coupe. I'm planning on replacing the wheels. Your model is giving me ideas.

    The way I do it is to make a dam around the area using modeling clay. Then pore Smooth On Silicone Rubber into the form. When the rubber has set you can pore resin into the cavity. I use Smooth On because you mix t 50/50 by volume. Good Luck

    Here's a pic of the grille that i mastered. I don't have a model of the pickup built yet but I do have a fleetside tailgate mastered as well.

    Actually the kit is correct. I own a 55 F100 and before I modified it the wheels were not centered in the wheelwell. I looked odd. The rolling chassis I bought fixed that problem by extending the wheelbase slightly to center the wheel.

    I've been distracted by summer activities so I'm little behind on this project but here's a pic of what I have. It's nearly ready to go into the rubber. The tailgate is for the Fleetside bed. I've designed them for the Revell 66 kit and they fit fine. I believe they will work on the AMT 60 as well. I plan on testing that tonight. Once these are done I'll tackle the tailgate for the Stepside bed.

    I'm just finished mastering the GMC grille and tailgate. I'll be offering them in the next few weeks for those that are interested. You can reach me at kitchen_table_resins@yahoo.com for details.
  9. Ken Kitchen added a post in a topic How much does the shade of primer affect the actual color of Tamiya lacquers?   

    It really depends on the specific color. Some of Tamiya's paints are more translucent and are heavily affected by the primer. Others are so opaque that the primer doesn't seem to have any impact. The best thing to do is try the spoon test. Take a white plastic spoon and put white, grey and black primers on it then overcoat with the color of your choice. That way you'll have a side by side comparison and can easily judge which primer works best for your application.

    Another tip if you use the foil method is to use the cheapest foil you can find. it tends to be much thinner that the name brand foils.

    What you have there are parts from 3 different kits & manufacturers. The one on the left with the separate hood is the AMT 53 F100. The one with the flip front is the MPC 53 F100. It looks like the blue one may be the MPC as well. The copper colored parts are from the Revell 56 F100. They are mixed scales as well. The AMT & MPC are 1/25 while the Revell is 1/24 scale. I like your scratch building I'm looking forward to see how this turns out.

    Here's another one I did. Based on the old MPC Barnabas Vampire Van.

    Here's mine.

    I have never been a fan of this kit seeing it as a source for parts only. This build makes me want to build one now. I really like the way you've done this one. Great Job!
