  1. 1) Trying to figure out on this Mustang ("Lucifer" from DOH S1) what the red-striped things are on either side of where the grill used to be. I've got 'em circled.  And, can anyone show me clear photos of what they are, so I can try to make them?

    2) Also, am I right in thinking the grill is actually removed, and that's the rad we see?  Or not?

    3) Oh, and another thing.  Where can I find a hood scoop like that?  Haven't found anything in the resin line yet, not that I know it well...is this available aftermarket anywhere?




  2. Seeking opinions for an interior color for a 66 GTO.  I've chosen Reef Turquoise as the exterior color and wonder what would be a good match for the interior? I'm *thinking* one of the blue or turquoise interior colors but am uncertain what would be appropriate.  Was looking at the interior color chart (link below) and wondered about "Dark Bright Blue" or "Dark Turquoise" but would like to hear from folks who know better.  Thanks!


  3. For your amusement.  Back in '77, my folks' early 60's Plymouth Savoy totally died.  I was 6 but I remember it well.

    What I didn't know at the time was my folks typed up an obituary for the car (without publishing) to amuse themselves.  They even listed our other car ('70 Cutlass) as one of the survivors. 

    Enjoy! :DB)

    Where did you end up getting the decals for the general lee when it was built?

    Tim Sherry decals, got 'em years ago.  Tough to find, well worth snagging them if you can ever find them.

    Thanks Gustavo!

    Interesting question. I've been kinda looking for something similar for a build of the Eddie Dye roadster.

    Closest real-world color I've seen was on a late-model Caddy hippopotamus.

    Somebody like MCW or Scalefinishes otter be able to mix it if you can find a color code.

    Yep, second place I went looking was in Scalefinishes.  Might be in there somewhere, but I didn't find it.

    Actually found what I'm talking about, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-rrI3qjWQc


  6. Seeking advice since I'm just an aircraft guy who dabbles in automotive and am often clueless.  Saw a show recently with a '68 Charger redone in a shade called "Black Cherry."  As the name implies, it looks almost black from some angles and deep dark burgundy from others.  Was really taken with it, it was breathtaking.

    Been doing searches and haven't found anything yet unless I want to fork over a couple hundred for a bit of professional paint.  Is this something available in our plastic world, and if so, where?

    Try wrapping the wire around a machine screw to make the coil springs. That way, each coil will be equally spaced apart from the next one.

    I would also suggest buying a razor saw (or two, they come in different tooth counts) and you'll get much better control while cutting.

    Neat project, and good on you for turning three kits into one. 😁

    Perfect, thanks!
