    Agreed. RIP Powers.

    So that's where they sent all the good stuff! Ollies here has just Lindberg stuff and the Dodge Ram. Good score.

    1 & 2 mm sticker @ $11.99 and $12.99 for the 4mm.

    Thanks for that heads up. I ran over to my local HL (Destin, FL.) and picked up a 2mm & 4mm on 40% coupons.

    Welcome to the forum and back to hobby Bill! Panhandle resident here.
  6. FordRodnKustom added a post in a topic CLOUD MIST GRAY 40   

    Sharp. I like the subtle big 'n' little's and the drop. Perfect.
  7. FordRodnKustom added a post in a topic Ollie's strike again   

    Exactly the same deal here. Lots of Lindberg ship kits too.
  8. FordRodnKustom added a post in a topic Building a parts arsenal   

    Absolutely. I have several sets of wheels from those above mentioned chopped Mercs and a few others.
  9. FordRodnKustom added a post in a topic Wide whites & sombrero covers   

    Yes, and wide whites.
    The 49 Merc has this style cap

    The 48 Ford has these

    Well done Bernard! Your modifications, especially the channel, overall stance and the simple flathead really make this build stand out and look like an authentic hot rod rather than the somewhat "toy-like" presentation the kit has(to me) straight out of the box. Take a bow Sir!
  11. FordRodnKustom added a post in a topic Question about aerosol paint cans?   

    Thanks all. I understand what's going on here now. These cans are old so it all makes sense, I always decant and airbrush anyway so I should be able to use them later.

    Makes sense. Thanks.

    Question about aerosol paint cans?
    I have more than a few cans of paint from various manufacturers on the shelf doing this. They have been there for quite some time. The room and house is climate controlled and house is about 35' above sea level.

    What exactly is that leaking out and what is causing this? Will the paint still be usable? Sorry if this subject has been covered before. Many thanks!

    Cool. FWIW The early first issue AMT '58 Impala kits had those tires in them also. I had one "in the day".

  15. FordRodnKustom added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    WOW! Good scores there Tommy!
    Picked this up today from My local O'Reilly's. I noticed my current can of my favorite filler was starting to dry up and get thick as they do after a while on the shelf. Getting tired of throwing away almost full containers of this relatively expensive filler I did some research to see if there was a way to thin it and low and behold I found this stuff. I had no idea there was such a product! Looks to be a type of resin.
    Hopefully I won't be tossing any more Eurosoft away because of it drying up.
