snack truck's Activity
snack truck added a topic in GeneralRoss EnginesCan anyone inform me of the best glue to use on these engines. I started building an engine, and put on some CA glue, placed the parts together, and went to adjust them, and bingo, the parts were welded together instantly. Seems there is no wiggle room with resin. This is the first resin I have worked with. Any advice would really be appreciated.

snack truck added a topic in Under GlassCamaro Concept CarThis is Revell's Camaro concept Snap Tite Kit (85-1944). Kit was molded in Silver plastic. I painted it Tamiya's Light Metallic Blue (TS-54), gold foiled the bow ties front and rear, BMF the outside rearview mirrors, as there was no chrome piece to represent mirrors, carpeted the interior with grey embossing powder, slight detail to the rest of the interior, gold foiled the brake calipers and BMF'd the front and rear marker lights and painted them with apporpriate clear colors. I also put BMF behind the tail lights to add depth. Then I put 2 coats of wax on. The wiper blades were molded into the front windshield, so I high lighted them with a black sharpie. If this build looks at all familiar, that is because it was featured in SAM as a project to show how a snap tite kit can be spruced up. Also was revied in the last issue of Model Cars Magazine. I don't normally build snap tite kits, but the car looked so sharp, that I just had to give it a try. I hope you enjoy.

snack truck added a topic in GeneralTestors Decal KitI have been having trouble with Testorâ€™s Decal making kit. I have both clear and white paper. I also have the required bonding spray. I have printed good clean graphics on the decal sheet, sprayed a couple of times with the bonding spray. Done this several times. Varied the amount of spray each time on a cleanly printed paper, so as to make sure I got the spray down right. Every time I got to use these decals, they loosen up just fine, but as soon as I get the decal to start sliding on to the model, the leading edge curls up and I cannot get it to straighten out. To me I feel like there is not enough spray on it, but I have gone from moderate to heavily moderate. The instructions say not to use too much.
My question is there an alternative way of doing your own decals with some other paper and spray. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx in advance.
