    What kit did this lil beauty come from?
    I picked this up from a pal. A GM big block with a transaxle and valve covers on upside down. However I don't recall a kit like this. Probably some wacky show car.
    Anyone know what kit this is from and whether the transaxle is something fictional or something that exists in 1:1?

    EDIT: scratch the second part of the question. I just found this pic. It's pretty darn close.

    Exactly how did an article on race cars become an attack on big wheel customs?

    Looking forward to this.

    Very happy on my end as well Mike.
    I also just completed a trade with David Sutherland (Jhedir6) and was very happy with the outcome. I recommend both traders.

    Very simple to scratch up.

    I've used the same trick with paper towels to create, el cheapo seat covers in a beater, and on 3" shotgun cleaning swatches too.

    $40 for digital only sub? That's only bi-monthly? I can understand that they are just starting up, but man that is steep.

    Very nice! Paint looks super smooth. Well done.

    Oh I agree completely.
  10. Jantrix added a post in a topic How many people fully detail a model?   

    My detailing usually has to do with whatever is going to stand out most on a model. The body? The interior? The engine? Almost never all of the above. Whatever is likely to pull the eye on the model. This keeps me from taking forever on builds.

    Quite right. And they are pretty nice.

  12. Jantrix added a post in a topic Dipmobile? Build idea? Anyone?   

    I'm sure theres a wacky Thom Daniels kit that you could do a version of this with. Something with a tank on it maybe.

    Testors & Model Master Lacquers - no candies?
    Has anyone seen any candy or transparent colors from Testors One Shot Lacquers or Model Master Lacquer System?
    I have not. I wonder why considering the popularity of candy colors in the hobby?
    Is there a chemical reason? Maybe lacquer is a poor paint type for transparent colors?

    Yep. But for the relatively gentle use they get at the hobby bench, they do fine.
    I've bought clamps, calipers, files, sandpaper, needlenose pliers and flush cut diagonal cutters. 
    Also for one or two time use tools I recommend them. I needed a socket big enought to change out a heating element in the my hot water heater. I got a whole set of them for $15. You can't beat it.
