  1. Darrell Waltrip combo build

    That's a good deal, I have the same set, I bought it years ago. I built the Mountain Dew Car but still haven't done the Pepsi one.
  2. I finally noticed the tread about using Future\Pledge I'm going to get some of that and give it a try.
  3. Do you just put Pledge on it? Thanks for all the info guys very useful....
  4. The GTX is metallic so I can't polish it to easily, I do know you cant put lacquer on the enamels and the other 2 are definitely enamel.
  5. The Cobra and Buick are among the better ones but don't have the life like shine, the GTX in person almost looks like satin and I don't remember what kind of paint I used on it but I love the color on the car..
  6. Ok I have been looking at a few of my old builds that if I just cleared them and polished them they would be pretty awesome builds. So my questions do you think it would be an issue to clear an old paint job without sanding? I do have some Dupli-color adhesion promoter I figured I could use also. My other thought is some of them are painted with Testors model spray paint and I want to use Dupli-color clear over them, do you think that would be an issue? Couple of pics to show a few cases I want to do...
  7. Nice I like that idea. I'll have to get some of those.
  8. ok here is comparison question #4, I noticed polishing the Thunderbird the other day the polish gets in the door and trunk lines and can be tough to get out so to broaden that a little, my question is What sand paper and polish do you use and how do you clean it up and out of the detail after?
  9. I ordered a set of the markers yesterday to try first, maybe next pay I'll order some bare metal foil...
  10. That Molotow pen does an awesome job.... I think badges are going to be the hardest for me to get right...
  11. Expensive is not good for me I'm definitely on a budget, I have a silver sharpie around here somewhere I'll test it out
  12. I will definitely order some of the BMF and Molotow pens but I'm not always patient LOL so I tried some foil tape on an old build to see how it comes out, and its wasn't bad but kind of hard to cut but I like tinkering anyway... I did the door and fender so far....
  13. Impressive, I would love to see how you did that. Next paycheck I think I'll order some of the BMF.
  14. Wow that stuff is expensive..... I will check out the Bare Metal Foil and Molotow "Liquid Chrome" ink markers. I'm really trying to step up my game on these kits.
  15. Ok here is my 3rd comparison question, I've always painted all my chrome trim and emblems with silver paint and build mostly 1/25th scale cars. I have seen on YouTube some people using plumbers tape to cover them. What process do you all use? I'm very interested in this since before getting back into modelling recently I never knew there was anything other than silver paint.
