  1. You can get a bazzilion opinions on this but... The consensus is lacquers have "hotter" solvents and will reactivate enamels causing problems. There are exceptions. Long cured enamels are less prone the reactivation. Also some lacquers are hotter than others. It is basically a trial by error thing.
  2. Not really. I am kinda fond of it still.
  3. Just got my trailer kit on sale for less than $20 with free shipping.
  4. Just got my order from freetimehobbies.com $63 plus free shipping. (Under $16 per kit)
  5. Thanks Sam. The doors for the box came from the fire engine parts you gave me.
  6. Thanks for the tip. I have the two bottles of the plastruct. I use it sparingly. It works well when the is a lot of surface area for the parts to be joined and the gap is tight. I also use CA glue for things that are not clear, chrome or glossy.
  7. I have only one restoration under my belt. It was done only because of budget vs. the desire to have one. Over all, I can appreciate the efforts required but I am still developing skills like fabrication. Here is a link.
  8. Got some 150 grit sandpaper and and some Sodium hydroxide to improve my Purple Power.
  9. Fabbed up a headache rack/chain box from parts box pieces and some diamond plate.
  10. Made a little progress while waiting to be able to paint. Assembled interior and just masked it off to spray the bottom.
  11. I have not invested in an airbrush (yet) I will be following to see how well you do. Besides, I like Chevelles.
  12. I agree. This is the most amazing 1:25th scale I have EVER seen. The carb and the transmission blow me away.
  13. A few years ago, I lost High Performance Pontiac. The publisher automatically switched me to Motor Trend. (Why would I want to read about somebody swooning over the number of cupholders in the latest "crossover") I had to call them to get my remaining subscription switched to Mopar Muscle. That was fine but now they have cancelled that AND Car Craft right after pestering me to resub to both. My wife did the resubs as that's all I wanted for Christmas. I actually had to call them and get a refund. On top of that, they signed her up for Motor Trend On Demand and she had 2 months of subscription charges for that without even knowing. ($4.99 per moth for the rest of your life). They didn't even have a number to call. I had to send an email to get that cancelled. Fortunately they responded right away and refunded all of it. If my cable bill gets too high, I will seriously consider Motor Trend On Demand. But not unless I can get it on my TV screen. I do not want to watch shows sitting in a computer chair in front of the PC.
