    1969 Chevelle convert wheel well trim
    I'm looking for suggestions on how to recreate the chrome wheel well trim on this model.  I am already aware of removing the trim left over from the 68 and the vent windows.  But want to recreate a proper look for this kit.

    Recent BMF quality question
    Bought two sheets from local hobby shop that has a good turnover of products,  they each contained miniscule, almost microscopic lines.  I called Randy at BMF and was told the roller appling the glue caused this.  I ordered three sheet direct from them, they arrived and each had the same texture issues.  When applied to a model, no amount of burnishing will remove these fine lines, the surface now has the texture of 1/25th alligator skin. They are all over the sheet, not like the big wrinkles I have seen before.  Anybody else having this issue?

    I too use the old spoon test, besides providing a great couple of surfaces, you can also write the combos you are trying on the handle.

    Some of the calipers we sell at Grainger, have a decimal to fractional conversion listing on the back.  Some but not all.

    Hey modelers any tips on painting the hubcap centers on the new Tamiya Mercedes 300SL.
    The center of the chrome cap is to be body color with the iconic Merc. emblem still chrome. They offer decals for the emblem but would like to save the actual chrome one. Thanks for looking.

    Tamiya newbie with a window masking question
    Tamiya is great to include masks for painting window trim, my question for all y'all is, do you paint the inside or the outside of the plastic window. And do most of you spray or brush paint the exposed surfaces. Thanks for all responses.

    thanks alot John for the box art. I guess over the years I have shied away from those versions. Built some of the Pro Modeler and Revell releases.
    Appreciate the extra work.

    Modelhaus/AMT question about 57 sedan delivery
    Just picked up this resin kit and it says to use the ORIGINAL AMT 57 Chevy kit. I have had several incarnations of 57, what constitutes the Original. Better yet what does the box art look like ! If anyone has attempted this build I would appreciate any pointers you might want to share. Thanks to all responders.

    Need tips for Pegasus wheels and sleeves.
    First time trying to use Pegasus sleeves and they don't seem to slide over the wheels. Quite a bit of interference. What do you guys do to make the fit better? Thanks ahead of time for any and all answers.

    Thanks for the Press and Seal tip, similar to my solution, I keep precut pieces of wax paper with my paints to do the same thing, works like a charm.
