    If that's the only damage to it, I would use a few drops of cyano (Super) glue, then sand the exterior smooth, then mask up to the seal lines on the rear wings and just blow in that small part.

    I've had one of these for about 3 years now and I've used it mainly with cellulose and acrylic lacquer with no problems at all, I make a point of cleaning the filter and the motor fan unit on a regular basis

    Very nice build, I used to have a 1/32nd scale slotcar in the same livery

    yes,we did get them over here, I bought my mk2 new in 2006, but we didn't get some of the dream cruiser series you had over there, and you couldn't buy a mk1 convertible in RHD at all, they were only built in LHD only, we didn't get RHD convertible until the Mk2 came out, and we never got any of the turbo models at all

    And on the other side of the pond, it's perfectly legal to import and use LHD vehicles over here, although the speedometer needs to be converted from kph to mph to pass it's MOT, a few members in the Cruiser club have imported a few PT Cruisers from the States, as we didn't get all the models over here 
    I lived in ankeny, iowa for a short while in the late 90's and always wondered why the mail vans were RHD,

    I have plenty of reference material on them, gathered up over the years before there was even a model kit of them, believe me, when they rolled out of the factory, the paintwork was very glossy, they did eventually go to robotic for the painting, but for years it was bladdered on with sprayguns and the people doing it didn't even wear respirator masks, the paint formulation is the same as what you would find in the paint you paint your house with, which is why the paint is labelled as "Weatherproof" not surprising after a few years every Trabant looked a little faded, I've just been contacted through my website to build one of these for a Trabant owner in Kentucky, usually my commission builds are either for model magazines or people this side of the pond.

    We now have wheels, and they all touch the ground at the same time,

    Thanks Harry, I'll have to keep my eye's open for one, the Airfix '32 Imperial I built a few years ago was a re-boxed MPC kit, I've also got the original MPC version in my stash

    It does say on the Tamiya website that this shouldn't be used over an enamel finish, as any overflow will be very hard to remove, your better off making a wash using acrylic paint if your using enamel paints to paint your bodies

    When you say you sprayed the Tamiya X-7, was this out of a rattle can or airbrush ?? Also I'm not sure why you would need a clear gloss over gloss paint

    Superb build Jonathan, any problems with the build ??
  13. GeeBee added a post in a topic 1932 CHRYSLER ROADSTER   

    Absolutely Beautiful, what make is this ?? I'll love to build one to go next to the old Airfix (Ex MPC) version I built a few years ago

    I don't do anything special, the flocking I bought came from China, in pretty large amounts and works out much cheaper compared to some of the smaller amounts you buy specially for modelling.
    Here's the tools I use for the flocking, and along with some regular PVA white glue with a few drops of water added, if I'm doing a floorpan I will do it in around 4 sections, the boot liner was done in sections, floor, sides etc, I always airbrush the floor or the part I'm flocking in a colour that's very near the shade of the flocking I'm using, once dry the PVA glue is applied then the flocking is places into the sieve, and simply sprinkled over the glue, pressing down gently with my finger, the wooden stick is used to press the flocking down in the corners, and then left to dry for a few hours before moving onto the next sections to be flocked.
