  1. I never use the same process for making rust. I constantly come up with different methods using oils, acrylics, powders, sponge's and brushes etc.
  2. Never use Windex or other cleaners that have ammonia in them. Ammonia will attack the plating on the inside of the airbrush and cause it to corrode over time. I destroyed two new Passche Talons before I figured this out.
  3. Been awhile since I posted anything. Here's my latest Mack.
  4. The engine was weathered to match the truck. The pic shown was taken when I was test fitting the engine before I weather it.
  5. This was built from an AMT kit. I put the original flathead on the pallet and installed a 409 with two fours.
  6. I got some great models at my local Ollie's. The chopper and Grand Prix were $9.99 and the chase Elliot was $3.99 I always remove the big orange Ollie price sticker's before I put them in my stash heap😎
  7. Being a moonshine diorama builder myself this is a great build you've done. I wish more people would do moonshine builds.
  8. This was a very unique idea. Excellent job on the details.
  9. Mike, This is one of the best builds I've seen in a long while. It takes a lot of talent to build a daily driver and make it look that realistic. There's nothing more satisfying to me than to build something that's been used and abused. Tommy
  10. After seeing the level of skill you executed on this build I have no doubt that you'll repair that roof in nothing flat.
  11. I got this one a few months ago and finally got started on it. It'll go to a Army recruiting station just like the tank I built. These kits go together surprisingly easier than I expected. This was the gun ship model that has the guns and rockets mounted on the landing skids. The recruiter wanted a door gun like the Huey he was a gunner on so I scratch built a door gun. I still lack the ammo feed yet to finish the gun. I'll try to post a few picks as I progress. I'm weathering it as I build it so it's slow go. Tommy
  12. The tractor is a Farmall C made by Ertl. Got it on sale at tractor supply after Christmas. This one will do but I prefer precision series or Speccast for the much added details.
  13. The tractor is a Farmall C. Here where I live was Famall country back in the day with mostly super M's and super MTA's
  14. Excellent job on an excellent vintage racer. Gotta love the old school racer's.
