  1. I use 12 oz. coke plastic bottles filled with water and double sided tape (designed to hold side trim on 1:1 cars) on top of the cap. I have three of them made up. Works great and the tape lasts a long time.
  2. Steve, every time I see that Ford, I think “that’s not a model, that’s a real car”. Beautiful work.
  3. Thank you for taking the time to respond to my questions. Happy Thanksgiving. Ron.
  4. Once again, very impressive work and thanks for the pictures. Much appreciated. I have to ask, what did you use for the tach and ignition box wiring and the connectors? Did you make your own decals and is each one separate?
  5. A lot of exacting work there. Very nice job. Pic of interior? The wheels are unfamiliar to me. The trans appears to be a th2004r and not the th200 that most use. The wheelie bar is scratch built?
  6. GT classes were created years ago to allow late model 4 and 6 cylinder front wheel drive cars to be converted to rear wheel drive v-8 cars. GT/AA would have a big block chevy as the most popular combination, but any corporate early model engine could be used. Classification to be determined by NHRA rated horsepower and weight of car. By the way, no tinted windows are allowed in super stock.
  7. Check out twopaws build of Lambeck’s car back in 2013.
  8. I believe the driver of that car was Paul Reinford. Never saw it run but saw it in the drag racing magazines at the time. For some reason, I remember it being a gold color. Anyway, where did the 3/4 ton GM rear end come from that you used?
  9. I just stick my brushes in water as soon as I am done painting, then take to the sink and rinse out and quickly dry them out with a paper towel. This is model master acrylics. Other brands and types of paint are completely different, of course.
  10. I also like it. Now sprinkle on some brake lining dust lol.
  11. As others have said, the 55 is the cheapest way to go. You shouldn’t need anything additional (other than paint, of course) . Scalehobbyist and hobbylinc both show it on back order but spotlighthobbies show it in stock. Price is $23-27 plus shipping. I had just checked on this kit yesterday for a possible f/g gasser build.
