sparkyd31 added a topic in GeneralBack again guysHi modelers,
I'm glad to be back getting help from this wonderful board.I just got back into building models with my son and we have a whopping 2 kits built now.The Revell 32 ford and a 1940 willy's.Both kits are from the goodguys collection.As of last night I won two more kits on ebay that I'm sure will make my wife happy(ha,ha,ha).They are the boyd coddington smoothster and the reissue 1937 amt chevy coupe"hubbards engineering"
3 in 1 kit.This was a must have kit for me seeing that
1)My last name is in fact Hubbard
2)I live in NY
3)I'm a welder by trade
4)I love drag racing and street rods sinse I could remember
I'm excited to get back building when the kids are all in bed and dad's needs time alone.I have a list of modeling questions that I will leave in other posts.For now I would just like a good modelers book that will help me and my son raise the bar in ourselfs as builders.Like I said my son and I really are staying with street rods for now.Talk to all again soon.

sparkyd31 added a topic in Generalkrylon fusion paint is a winner !HI modelers,
Since I'm doing a ford goodguys 3 window coupe in gloss black I decided to try the new krylon fusion plastic paint.It says on the can it's a direct spray on and no primer is needed BUT I still primmed the body and all parts with krylon white quick dry primmer(12 minutes to dry and no drips)I have to say I really like this stuff and it really shines nice when dry.Now after I'm done I'll put a few light coats of clear and I'm done.It's to bad fusion only comes in about 10 colors and most are ugly but the gloss black did the job for my little 32 coupe.Has anyone else used this paint with good results? Take care,sparkyd31
