  1. and battleships. Also learned drafting in high school on a board Still have the drawings Use a small adjustable carpenter's square to check for squareness on truck chassis.
  2. Another tip to prevent paint bottle disasters. Use a roll of electrical or other tape.
  3. Scrwdrvr: The blue vertical stands are adjustable horizontally plus the left one is spring loaded so the body is held by a clamping action. There are also grooves in the black pieces that mate with the body.
  4. I leave my metal files overnight in a bottle of nail polish remover to dissolve the plastic.
  5. A fellow modeler suggested using a circuit board holder to position model car bodies while applying decals or trim. Purchased from amazon. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Q2TTQEE?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
  6. Just finished this 1/48 scale diorama made from two kits and some model railroading detail parts.
  7. This was the two kits in one box offering.
  8. Box stock except for tire decals.
  9. Restoration done. A little concern with the red in the decal sheet, it looked to maroon. Turns out they were translucent and became a bright red when applied. Also, during the resto built a companion Ramcharger Dodge Challenger.
  10. Restoration of my originally built 1970 Ramchargers Dodge Dart Funny Car. Time , about 50 years, and wear took a toll of the original decals (cracked and yellowed)and unpainted body. The chassis was in good shape, all it took was some touch ups with a Molotow pen. A dip in the Easy-Off pool took care of the original decals. SMH decals will replace them. Next is prime and paint.
  11. More CV builds 1965 Mustang 1967 Olds 442 1994 Alternomad 1970 Buick GSX
  12. Additional builds 1994 Ford Lightning Hubley 1931 Model A pickup.
