    Thanks Chuck. Looks like TJ and I will make a deal for one.

    Nothing you are doing would require something that strong. I don't know about the Aves, but your model will break before the JB Weld.

    I was thinking the same thing. The problem is that I'm building this box stock for contest.
    If this kit has been released by Round2 recently, (maybe the Passionate Poncho release) can someone check that issue to see if the problem was corrected?

    '62 Catalina windshield issue
    So, I've got the '62 Catalina Custom kit. It's pink on the box art and the car has side vent window frames, but no vent windows on the clear parts tree. The instructions show a windshield that wraps to cover the vent windows, but the actual part does not. Is this a "custom" feature of this kit or is it an issue with all the Catalina releases? Any help would be appreciated.

    I finally got some free time to get started. Not much to see just a lot of cleaning and painting. The way I see it, without adding extra detail, the best way to make a box stock build up pop, on a contest table, is three things. 1. A great finish, 2. eye catching style and 3. contrasting colors.
    So to that end I'm using flat black, semi-gloss black, aluminum, silver, gunmetal, titanium and flat red paints for the chassis and interior, and the body will be two tone gloss red over flat black.

    If I might make a recommendation, try using some 70% isopropyl rubbing alcohol and an old toothbrush to help thin down that grey paint of before you start sanding.

    Anyone have any info on this engine? Type, displacement?
    Nevermind. I found the answer in the other thread. 427.FE

    Outstanding. I've done this a couple times with lint-free cloths fresh from the package, but it's always hit or miss. Good to know there's a better product. Yours looks better also. Thanks much.

    Tell us more on how you did the seat covers. What sort of fabric did you use?

    This is your biggest problem. Not the kit. You are not into building models. The kit will require major modifications to get to your goal. So as a beginner modeler, odds are you will not achieve the quality you will want.
    So as I see it, you have two options.
    1. Save up for the diecast.
    2. Become a modeler. Learn the techniques to help you reach your goal.
    One takes time, patience and practice. The other requires some overtime at work. Your call.

    I've hit a bit of a snafu. I've designed the chassis to fit the interior cup rather precisely. The problem is, what I thought was the proper location for the interior cup, based on fit, was incorrect as the interior door lines pointed out to me. The result? My axle locations are about 10mm too far forward. Normally I'm a "measure twice, cut once" kinda guy, so this really has me pissed off. Hope to get it fixed this weekend.

    Well done. I like it quite a lot.

    That's very cool. I'll be starting on this project very soon. I'm slowly gathering the materials.
  14. Jantrix added a post in a topic 1950's Ford Pickup   

    Looking forward to it.

    Not much to show yet. Got the parts clipped and sorted and will start cleaning up the mold lines tomorrow. Leaning towards a custom with some miles on it. Not a barn find, but rod that has a lot of miles and car shows under it's belt, in dire need of a rebuild.
