  1. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Got some supplies for the Workbench. Sandpaper, hobby blades, Dremel cut-off wheels, a jewelers saw with extra blades, and some New and Improved Bare-Metal Foil. I also got some more Mustangs to build.
  2. Real or photoshop?

    I’m going to say illustration.
  3. Saving a ‘64 Mustang Indy Pace Car

    Your son has good taste in cars LOL. I started with an interest in Legos, which evolved into diecasts, which then became an interest in models. So, there may be a hope for the model building hobby to carry on
  4. 1967 Shelby GT350

    Nice job on the body work. I ran into the same fitment issues with the ‘67 GT-350 that I’m currently working on.
  5. Saving a ‘64 Mustang Indy Pace Car

    Thank you! Some of those builds have been stalled from about 25 years ago. I thought it would be nice to finally finish them.
  6. Saving a ‘64 Mustang Indy Pace Car

    Thank you for the tip, Rex. I’ll be sure to do that.
  7. Saving a ‘64 Mustang Indy Pace Car

    Started disassembly on the interior. All I have yet to disassemble is the column and steering wheel.
  8. I’m glad the issue is being looked at, because I had the exact same thing happen a few hours ago. I resized the photos (for example, a 2.5MB picture downsized to about 300KB) and that seemed to work.
  9. Getting paint off of tires?

    Thank all of you for the replies. Excellent information from all of you. Some rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab took the paint right off.
  10. Is there a way to get paint off of tires without ruining them? Here is an example from the '64 Indy Pace Car that I'm rescuing.
  11. Ever have a jinxed model?

    Yep, sure do. I was rescuing a half-built Mustang Mach III. It wasn’t in the best condition, but all the parts were there. the build was going good... until I went to glue the windshield in. It needed trimmed down a bit to fit in the frame. I guess I held it a little too tight while trimming, because next thing I know the windshield split clean in half. the next hurdle was when I knocked the hood (which had the hinges applied and drying) onto the floor. I still have yet to find the hinges... and the last thing that happened before I put it away for a while was the rear broke while I was test fitting the chassis. I still have it sitting on “the shelf”. I’ll give it another go one day.
  12. Saving a ‘64 Mustang Indy Pace Car

    Time for me to get back to this build. After a few hours in the Purple Pond, the paint came right off the body and radiator. It appears that the radiator is assembled sideways, which is a simple fix. The inner rims are soaking in IPA, and I'm slowly but surely getting the interior disassembled.
  13. 71 Mercury Cyclone restoration

    Looks good! Nice job on the interior!
  14. Real or photoshop?

    I’d say real.
