      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    Why the grumpy response, Harry?
  4. jamie added a post in a topic U-JOINTS.   

    I don't think he was ripping you. He was just saying that the project wasn't going to be too hard. Take a chill pill, bud. He also mentioned how you could do it.

    For a window net, MCG makes a template with everything you need.

    Done for NNL East
    I managed to build this in time for the NNL East. I literally pulled an all-nighter and finished a half an hour before I left to go.

    I was contemplating building the large scale Poncho when Dave built his. I asked him, Jay, Clay, and TJ a MILLION questions, and I just wanted to thank them. I can officially say that this was the biggest pain in the ass build I have ever done. You were right, Dave. I had to scratch built and / or modify pretty much everything, including the fuel cell / entire trunk area, roll cage, engine, etc. a BIG thank you to patto @ www.pattosplace.com

    Feel free to comment - good or bad.

    List of stuff:
    AMT 1/16 kit,
    Tamiya blue & Tamiya yellow,
    Patto's Place decals,
    mesh grills,
    window net made from plaster netting (the stuff you use to fix plaster walls)
    Detail Master line
    scratch built fuel filler
    hood hinges on front & back

    Again, thanks guys!

    So, i guess you must love the COTs.

    What most people refer to when they say Pontiac's is the body shell. Of course they are generic GM setups. So, if you want to be that minute & say that there weren't Pontiac's since the 80's, that's fine. But i think you're making a mountain out of a mole hill. No offense, but if he had said, "here is a generic GM platform NASCAR", we would have probably asked him what he was talking about and let him know he built a PONTIAC.

    Nice job man! I haven't seen that scheme yet. Looks great!

    Not that bad for a first-timer!
    1. Use better brushes if you must paint with them. I use Sable brushes.
    2. You might want to try a different brand of paint. Model Master makes a great line of Acryl paints that go on smooth.
    3. Try painting the pieces with Tamiya spray instead of brush painting. I only brush paint the finest details.
    Hope this helps...

    That's going to haze the plastic.

    I know you don't want to do it, but I recommend a clear sheet of plastic and use that.
