  1. LOTS of tedious work there and well executed. Where is the carb from? Looks like a wcfb, so I assume this is a replica of a 265 chevy? Great job.
  2. Your foiling and engine detail work are precise. What color is the body and why does it look copperish in some shots and bright red in others? Don’t guess you did headers on this car? Thanks, Ron.
  3. If you have to glue painted parts together you can scrape the paint off and use cement, but I got tired of cleaning off the paint and now use the small tubes of super glue on painted surfaces.
  4. Very realistic. What did you use for plug wires and “silicone” boots? Did you make the super coil? Hard to tell in the pic, but, did you flatten the aluminum rod (on the shock)? Thanks, Ron.
  5. My sympathies. My curiousity, however, has to ask, how? Dropped? Nonrepairable? Although a neophyte with resin bodies (only have 3) what problems have you experienced?
  6. Find some 7 inch “cheater” (grooved) slicks.
  7. I like it a lot. Are you going to put a strip of styrene under the drip rails to duplicate the top of the door and rear window top strip on the sedans?
  8. Thank you mr. Geiger for taking the time and effort to help others. Great idea.
  9. Thanks for the tip, I will try the micro fiber cloth (will probably work better than my current method of using whatever clothes I am wearing).
  10. The 9215 testors kit is very convenient for painting small items (engines, chassis, etc.). I use it with the modelmasters acryl paint ( no thinning, mixing, etc) and cleans up with water. For painting bodies, Tamiya spray cans (ts series) are the best unless you have an airbrush.
  11. Believe it or not, the main reason for carrying the hp and cubic inch on the cars was for the spectators. Most spectators and people in the pits looking at the cars appreciated “stock” cars and were curious about the type(s) of engines they had. Until I lettered my car, the first question(s) was always the size of engine and hp.
  12. I got the one without lighting and added my own. Use mostly Tamiya spray cans and have no problems. Quality piece of merchandise. You won’t regret it.
  13. I was under the impression that everything at mcw was “out of stock” and they were all “built” after you ordered the model. Right or wrong?
