  3. Bonding Clear to Opaque Styrene

    Thanks for the advice everybody! I'll have to look closer at the kit I plan to do this with (MPC 1/16 T/A) and see what would work best there.
  4. What would be the best "bonding agent" to glue clear T-Tops to a roof so I can do the body work to make the subject look like a solid roof car?

    So long as it's not that bright yellow that the Revell Snap New Beetles were molded in, I shot Duplicolor White Sandable Primer on it and that came out looking like a block of butter in the shape of a New Beetle!

    Got an old XJ that could use a good scrubbing if you want relive the old days, it's even green
  7. WW II Jeep by MPC

    Lol, I'd be afraid that it would shove the scooter backwards while the rider continued forward over the handlebars

    I'll take one, or so. Last time it was issued and I bought one, it seemed like it was cursed, had a string of bad luck with and with it around and ended up tossing it in the dumpster at work figuring I'd get another one........guess it's time now!
  9. Rock 'n Roll, Dude!

    About 9-10 years ago my Sister had bought Rise Against tickets so she and her Ex could go to their Chicago show that year (I think it was at The Metro), and since they had broken up after she bought the tickets, I went with her even though they aren't really my thing. The local band that opened for them was playing when we got there and up along the front row, head banging with at least a dozen teenagers, were two guys who were probably well in their 40's (and probably in their mid-50's by now).......and they were banging away just as hard, if not harder than the kids around them! I can actually see those two doing just that in another 20-30 years.

  13. News of Revell molding preparing in US

    Well, I live on the south end of West Chicago and work just a few miles away on the north end and not too far from the Dupage Airport. There must be at least a dozen plastics and related companies around the office and between there and the airprt.

    Considering how many plastics related companies near where I'm now working, I wonder if that shop is local to me?!
