  1. Stock built out of the box. Learned I need to tape windows before spraying dull coat. Otherwise, I am happy with the result.
  2. My first time painting stripes. I ordered the star decals, then discovered when I opened them that they were dry transfer. They were a challenge. It is far from perfect when compared to others, but I am happy with it.
  3. Outstanding! If I may ask, how did you do the seats? I was hoping to do something similar in a truck I am building.
  4. Could you show a couple of "how to" pictures for this?
  5. Testors Root Beer on the Fenders, Krylon Brushed Metallic Caramel Latte for the body. I had painted it Tamiya USAF tan, but dropped it while moving it indoors to dry. Nearest hobby store is 350 miles. After a little sanding the Krylon covered the tan nicely.
  6. I started this about 10 years ago. Life got in the way and it got put into storage. Fast forward to a month ago. I pulled it out and realized I had not painted 3 body panels. They do not carry the paint here. My boss was going out of town for a work trip. 700 mile round trip and he brought me the paint to match the panels. I wish I had another of these to put together a little different.
  7. My dad drove one of these when I was a teen. He drove a 70 Chevelle race car about the same time. I have also built that. My goal is to build a trailer to attach to the truck and display all 3 together with a picture of him from his racing days.
  8. Thank you all. Looks like I will be sneaking some new materials past my wife!
  9. I am building a Monogram 55 Ford F100 Street Rod. I am new to the finer details of modeling. I have always just “put them together. The bed of the truck has 5 pin marks that will definitely be visible when the truck is complete. There are also some on the inside of the cab roof. I have big hands and getting in the tight spaces is challenging. What is the best way to remove these without hurting the look of the truck? I have a couple of pieces of pretty fine sand paper. I also have a Dremel tool and can get attachments. Any advice would be appreciated.
  10. Did you find what you needed? I have a set of decals from the AMT 70 Chevelle SS (minus the 79 Michigan license plates, I used them on another project).
  11. I have built models over the years, but never with any attention to detail. As a kid I was given a couple of Snap-Tite models without paint or glue and enjoyed putting them together. I joined the military after high school and tried to do a couple in my dorm, but time and space did not allow good results. Later, as a young father, I tried again. Life and kids got in the way. About a month ago, I decided to try again. I found a 58 Edsel about 80% complete in the closet that I started about 20 years ago and finished it. I am not good at fine details, and have a lot to learn. I will never win any contests, but I enjoy the creativity that comes with the kits. I live in North Pole, Alaska. We do not have a hobby store here (other than Michaels). Getting supplies has proven to be a challenge, but I am getting there.
