  1. thanks, I'll take in mind sanding my primer smoother than a babies bottom
  2. So I had some time to build and I hate how this model is a convertible but has a poorly detailed interior, so I scratch build new armrests and manual window cranks, I also received the correct bumper and taillights for the 69 SS, I got home today and planned on finishing the final details in the interior and get it ready for primer n paint, but I got home and the whole block didn't have power since 2pm! So the light didn't come back until 12am hopefully I have a chance to do more work tomorow
  3. Awesome thanks! I'll post some pictures when I get a chance to test them
  4. Hello I hear using testors metalizer (not sure if buffing or non) as a base coat for metallic paint is the way to go, just want to know before i begin to layer my model
  5. This is gonna be one interesting build budd!
  6. I'm not sure I want to paint this build the original orange, I was thinking Lemans blue. Maybe painting it with a silver base and lightly going over with the blue... (the two middle pics are alittle dark but maybe the silver base coat will make it a bit brighter.)
  7. Ron thank you for this helpful comment! I just ordered the correct bumper and taillights for my '69 SS396 from Missing Link Resin!
  8. Thank you, I know this was my first cast, I cut the flash RTV around the pedal mold (I got the gas pedal from a revell 1957 bell air kit) so the second cast should be good, I'll post pictures when I do the next cast!
  9. Thanks! I used Frekote 1711 (which is what we use at work with the RTV as a mold release) lightly sprayed the mold and heated the mold under a heat lamp for about 7 minutes.
  10. Thanks! Yea it is, I'm gonna try making some tires. I have some nice rims I got with a revell donk kit but don't have extra wheels so I'm gonna attempt to do a two piece mold
  11. So I'm an electronics technician and I work with sensors, my job has big molds made from RTV so I made this mold at work and it worked! From different kits, I used some stock rims (I'm gonna use them as speakers) some 6x9s, an amp, a bazooka, and a gas pedal. I got a chance to cast this weekend using Amazing Casting Resin and it worked good (besides a couple of air bubbles) the pedal didn't come out do to the flash around the small hole, but I fixed it and my next cast should be good
  12. Alright, so I finished the optima battery...it looks good enough and I also got some time to get those tedious doors aligned/hinged (I had to cut where the dashboard sits) and let me tell you, the more I time I get to work with this kit, the more I see how crappy this kit was molded! But despite all the negativity that I've read online about this kit im doing ok I'm really enjoying customizing the hell out of this one, I have at least 10 other kits lined up! But I'm being patient with this build...
  13. Thanks, Hopefully I have some time to work on my build tonight, I'm trying to hinge the doors and I'm undecided if I should customize the trunk to hinge it as well... keep your eyes peeled, I'll be back with more pics real soon
  14. Haven't had a lot of time to work on my build (work is , but I built a optima battery from scratch, I should be posting more pictures soon
