    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      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.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    I snapped my 32 body while sanding! Argh. I fixed it, but I was pissed.

    Thanx for the replies. The Rustoleum dries fairly quickly for me, in California. First time using the Rustoleum Clear though and I was impressed with the shine. The BMF needs to be thinner around the windows, now that I studied the pics. Tried using Aluminum BMF for the fins and Chrome BMF for all the trim, but the aluminum just wasn't sticking enough for me. Plus it didn't look that much different in the end. No pics of interior, I forgot. It is two-tone as well. No pics of engine because it was nothing special, no wiring etc.
     
    Any recommendations for a 55 (post) kit or a 56 (post) kit? Don't like the hardtops.

    '57 Chevy "Slambo"
    Picked up this kit on sale because I wanted to do a tri-five Chevy and this 57 looked like a good kit. Normally I don't like 2n1's, 3n1's,  etc., but this wasn't too confusing. I got my inspiration from "Black Betty" (pictured below) but I flipped the colors as I don't want to do a gloss black car yet! Colors are Rustolem Cranberry and Rustoleum Gloss Black with 2 coats of Rustoleum Gloss Clear. All said, it was a good kit with no real fit issues. I kept the stock engine in this one, but I did want to put it in the weeds. I flipped the front end and gained what I was looking for. In the back, I just made little bump stop lifts to raise the axle. It doesn't drag the ground, but I tried smaller wheels that looked too small for the car, so I used the ones that came it the kit. Not a huge fan of "slammed" cars in real life, but I switched from making this a gasser once I opened it. Maybe next time. Thanx for looking.

  10. Mahogany Rush added a post in a topic new issue Round 2 MPC 1960 Corvette   

    Well I just built this kit without knowing any issues beforehand, The kit was horrible in that way too much flashing, over-poured sprues which deleted any part numbers, fit issues on almost every part. It is a 6 in 1 which also has it's own problems. I do not recommend this kit as I have since read there are better ones out there. It was cheap at $20, but my cursing skills have reached epic proportions! Finished product came out well, but it was not as easy as it should have been.

    Great job! Very clean. I built one a few months ago and I concur that it is a great kit, but the front valance is a nightmare.

    Thanx for the replies. Yes the model is a dog, but it came out pretty good nonetheless. It's just that I had a hell of a time with it. I wasn't sure about the color when I picked it, but it did fit well with the white inlets and interior. Be warned if you buy this one though.
