  1. I couldn't remember Michael's name for the life of me. Thanks for that.
  2. Awesome! Those Keystones are spot on! Nice job integrating the LT5. I like the stock appearance combined with the surprise under the hood.
  3. Happy 3/27! I nearly forgot. 🙂

  4. Matt, I measured 2.7 inches where the gray dots in the photo are. Is this what you needed? LMK.
  5. The first (oldest) product has the Methyl Isobutyl Ketone. The current Extreme Lacquer has the MIBK removed.
  6. Your truck is absolutely great! A unique subject that's so well executed.
  7. Check out 3dscaleparts.com. There are several 1:12th scale wheel and tire sets listed there (slicks and fronts ).
  8. Brian, I went with a 3d printed grille to replace the clunky-looking (my opinion) kit parts. Just a suggestion.
  9. K&S Metals offers 1/16" diameter (.062) music wire, the standard diameter for kit axles. Found at hobby shops and many hardware stores. K&S 1/16" brass rod will do in a pinch,and cuts easier than steel music wire.
  10. Fantastic renditions of the actual cars! Now My Sharona is running through my head 😏.
  11. SDS for Testors Wet Look Clear, followed by the SDS for Extreme Lacquer Wet Look Clear. Showing a definite change in formulation.
  12. I have not purchased any B N L tires, however their resin parts and service are of good quality. I also echo the above sentiments regarding the other tire vendors listed.
  13. The slot mags in the AMT '40 Willys pickup are nice, although somewhat deep.
  14. I scuff the tire sidewalls with the wire side of a golf club brush.
  15. Thanks for that info. I need these for a 70 Wildcat. Now, if only finding a Wildcat rear valence panel was this easy 😕.
  16. If you haven't already, go to the Redline Resin website. There are high resolution pics available there of the Caprice kit. The kit grille seems off kilter to me. That's the only critical comment I have currently.
  17. I suffer from the same problem. I have quite a stash of Casey's wheels. Someday I hope to build something worthy of those wheels. 🙂
  18. Below is a photo of a '79 Malibu from Redline. I'm not displeased, realizing that work will be needed on it. The selling point for me was the separate chassis parts. I should note, this body is not the current version Redline is selling. I can take more photos if you like.
  19. I do. His quality is very good. I have at least 2 wheel/tire sets from 3d Scale Parts.
  20. I'm on shapeways and have purchased from him. I'll contact him on your behalf if needed.
  21. A lead, perhaps? https://www.shapeways.com/shops/ra-sti-acute-s-scale-accessories
  22. I don't just like your model, I think it is spectacular!
  23. My gut tells me that paying someone to master and produce the tires you need would get pricey in a hurry. Is there some chance that is not the case? I know my aftermarket wish list far exceeds my budget for off-the-shelf parts alone!
  24. Bill, Are you familiar with 3d Scale Parts/Mike Nagatani? I have some of his 1/25 scale wheel/tire combos, which are quite nice.
