MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. nope never heard that before..i used Walmart brand for many years till they quit making it ... now i will use Rust-Oleum 2X Ultra Cover Flat White Primer...white paint has always been hard to paint over a dark surface anyway... another thing i have learned (and i picked this up from aircraft builders) is prime white then paint with a flat white then clear coat..a gloss white is so hard to spray , but a flat white with a clear over the top is not..
  2. why did you use a silver primer over a grey ? ...that was a big waste and a mastake... u should have just primed with some flat white, then sprayed your gloss white on. then u would been all good..
  3. i did the swap years ago with no problem at all.. you may have seen it Cal Max or at one of yalls shows..i finally gave it to the CEO of the Co here in LC..
  4. 91% or 99% Isopropyl Alcohol should do the trick..
  5. if it been put together with testors glue then i have had great luck redoing glue bomb removing the paint with Easy Off Oven Cleaner name brand yellow can. it also had attack the glue and broke loose the parts
  6. i use Micro Set Solution from Microscale. most hobby shops have it or u can google it and buy it on line..of course first thing u do is soak your decal in warm water a few seconds till it slides on the paper backing . with a paint brush dab a little Micro Set where the decal goes and slide it on. brush more on to the top of the decal. let set a minuet or so . u may see bubbles or curling around the edges. now take the brush and dip it in water and go over the decal...now get u a parer towel and lightly press down on the decal soaking up the water. by now the decal should be setting..but i always like to brush more Micro Set and press the decal a few more time to make sure using water in between also..let set 24 hrs then u can take a damp cloth or paper towel and wipe all the excess Micro Set off before u clear coat . and remember if u do clear coat make sure the body is clean. i use air in a can or a tack cloth .
  7. i got mine off ebay years ago and love it.... just keep the filter clean and change when needed..i buy my filters from Amazon .. here is a link to one on ebay, but if u like it do shop around u may find it cheaper..https://www.ebay.com/itm/333836155106?hash=item4dba2f78e2:g:GZIAAOSwrphf5RDF
  8. you got it going your way now , only thing i see u need to do and im sure u already know is the trailer stinger needs to be at least another 2 inches added to the front (dont want the rear to close to the truck) and at least another 2 to 3 inches out the back . another thing are u gonna also haul the trailer on the back of the truck ? if so make sure u got the right width on the rear tracks..i know i rattle to much but im a scratch builder and just trying to help..
  9. my friend if i would have been building that model i would never notice the Chevy emblem on the steering wheel ..good catch....AMT was bad about using parts from other kits to save a dollar..
