    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

    I can't Imagine why you wouldn't want to do it this way. The pipes would look way better with a downward flow out the back, of course the carbs catching Bugs, and stuff  probably wouldn't be good. LOL

    I got lucky once and picked up a Glue bomb, for under $40. The 69 cougar shares the same parts luckily, except the Body.

    Is reversing the heads to relocate the Exhaust, and Carbs, something that could be done on the real Bike?

    I have seen a picture of what Mobius has of the Intended Pickup, and it is definately not a 60, but hey. I never thought I would see a 69/72 Ford F 100  modeled in any form, and was so Happy when I was proven wrong on that. Some Good advice to Model Companies keep listening to Your Customers, and Everything is going to be Allright.

    Love These Cars. Had a real one once, long ago. I have this Kit too, unfortunately the downfall is the chassis, and the molded in under hood accessories. yours is coming along Fine good luck with your engine detailing. I am sure it will look great.

    Sahuarita is a little south of Tucson. near Green Valley. On the path to Nogales. Green Valley is like a retirement destination. Douglas is like two hours South of Tucson to give you a little perspective.
    Great Place to be from. Unfortunately it is in one of the Top Ten Worst Places to Live in, in Arizona. My wife has a Couple of Aunts & Uncles and a whole slew of Cousins from there. Whom at the last get together We had, have Migrated to around my Neighborhood come to find out.

    Like the progress so far, but why did you remove the hood. Side emblems? They fit so we'll with the refrigerator image.

    Steven I just happened to stumble upon the paint today. I have used Anitas acrylic craft paint before for interior colors, and other brands like Wicked colors from Createx, For exterior colors. In compairison to actual Glitter flakes it contains material about an 1/8 the size a fairly good rendition of scale size. Not to get off of the subject, but I did see some color shifting Paints in small quantity, to make it easy to experiment with.

    Delta Ceramcoat paint question
    Hello,
    My question is has anyone tried Ceramcoat glitter paint from Delta. Found some at HL,and wanted to airbrush some on a model, curious to see if others have tried spraying glitter through an AB if so what needle size works best.
     
    Thanks,
    Gabriel.

    Revell 53 Bel Air
    Hello, 
    I am looking for ideas, and advice on how to enhance the Rear quarter panel trim on My Revell 53 Belair hard top. I am specifically speaking of the gravel guard on the front of the rear fender under the actual Belair script. These are very shallow in the engraving.
     
    Thanks,
    Gabriel.
