MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. So I I bought these aluminum tanks from a well known supplier of model truck parts. Advertised as aluminum tanks . They kinda look like they are wrapped in bare metal foil. Do you see it or is it just me??? Would you find this acceptable?
  2. I spent 12 hours on the bench this weekend working on this, and although I met my goals , you can hardly tell I did anything. I finished the frame stretch, just behind the sleeper, I added another section bringing the wheelbase to 280 inches total. 300 seem to be to much so I decided on 280. The engine is on its mounts, and radiator is fitted. The hood is done except the rivets. Question to those that have used Archer rivets, do they show under gloss paint? did some work on the chassis as well, front axle is lowered 3.5 inches.
  3. Is there a build thread for this beauty? Awsome work and I’d love to see come together.
  4. This is in fact the Black Magic kit with different decals and box art. I’m really excited about this build because like you, I think the ext hood Pete is most beautiful truck out there. I built the Black Magic kit when it first came out , shows my age, but I didn’t do it justice. This build has been in my head for a long time, and I have high hopes for it.
  5. Not right posting real trucks and saying they are models. 🤣 Outstanding build!!
  6. I’ve heard many people say that they are useless, but I like to use a 10/0 liner brush on smaller stuff…and like said above..toothpicks work well in some circumstances.
  7. I’d be very curious to know how many models “ Jenn from Testors “ has gloss coated with an airbrush 🤣🤣🤣
  8. If your going to gloss coat decals, I highly recommend using a solvent on them to get them snugged down and let them dry for a day or 2. You definitely don’t want them loose when ya coat them…and Rodent is correct, Testors gloss does yellow over time.The only Testors gloss coat I ever liked was the Wet Look Clear laquer which I understand is hard to find now.
  9. Any contact information? I’m not on Facebook. I tried emailing through the website a couple weeks but never heard back. The website seems to be down now.
