  1. 1967 Plymouth GTX

    You pushed all the right buttons, Jim. Very nice!
  2. Mercedes AMG GT - Revell 1/24

    VERY nicely done!
  3. Photo reduction

    So do I, but there's limits to that. If the source image is quite big and the required size only a few millimetres, you will end up with something unrecognizable. But I agree that it will work for license plates.

    Just saw on several European webshop sites that the Ferrari kits are on sale or at least available for pre-order. https://www.hiroboy.com/Alpha_Models--manufacturer--186.html# https://www.bsmodels.be/shop/model-kits/124-am02-0008-ferrari-812-full-kit/
  5. '17 Camaro & '13 Challenger

    Good idea and very nicely done!
  6. 1966 Cadillac Series 75 Limousine

    Awesome work, I'm impressed!
  7. First of all, congrats on the COPO. Looking good! As far as the antenna "issue" is concerned, I found the use of "disposable acupuncture spring handle needles" very helpful. I am using those in 0.35 mm diameter and IMHO they look fine in 1/25 scale.
  8. 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle 396 Super Sport

    I really like this. A nice choice of color and beautiful wheels. Well done!
  9. 1962 Bel Air

    Thanks for the explanation, Bill. I have used a similar method for getting small logos etc. and as you said, the outcome depends on the original resolution and the printer's quality. For some of those things printed out on normal paper I have found it helpful to "seal" it with self-adhesive transparent foil, the stuff that is used to protect book covers.
  10. Hi there, I can't see any images...?
  11. Thanks Oliver, appreciated!
  12. 1962 Bel Air

    Very well done! I have seen other modelers archieve nice results for that kind of "metallic interior" look by using Tamiya Pearl Clear but your method definitely worked out nicely too! Will you reveal the "decal trick" to the others too? Is a about using printouts for patterns?
  13. Buddy Baker Torino .

    Great result, really like it! May I ask, has anyone here already built the MPC Bobby Isaac kit? Can't seem to find anything...?
  14. Cotton Owens Charger 500

    Beautifully done! I really like it!
  15. How Do You Fit Warped Hood

    Yes, the same as you'll ALWAYS have to be, using one for this purpose. It goes without saying that a FH with temperature control and timer should be used. Low temperature setting and frequent control of the plastic's state is mandatory. I guess the paint is not the issue here, as far as I understand, the paint was already on when he bought it, so he'll likely strip off the paint anyway...
