  1. Pics of your Showrods anyone?

    Here's my version of the Lil Coffin.
  2. Factory Stock '26-7 Fords

    Beautiful collection I admire your determination to see this project through. Are you aware of Anthony Hazelaar's 1/25 scale Model T Ford Car and Truck Models. I believe he's located in the Netherlands. Here's a link to his site: http://oldcarandtruckpictures.com/modeltrucksandcars/
  3. Here's my version. I did this a couple of years ago after seeing the real thing at Good Guys Loveland.
  4. Foose Cadillac

    I'm interested. How do I get one of these?
  5. 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.
  6. '48 Ford mild custom

    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.
  7. 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
  8. 66 GMC grill and tailgate

    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.
  9. AMT 53 f100

    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.
  10. 66 GMC grill and tailgate

    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.
  11. 66 GMC grill and tailgate

    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.
  12. 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.
  13. foil casting?

    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.
  14. 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.
