  1. Interesting thing to know. I had opened up both vents and I couldn't decide where the PE parts should go. I ended up using the chrome pieces that came with the kit and put them where the instructions said to. I guess I should have researched my project better. Lesson learned. This is my first attempt of using PE parts and I came to the realization that they are very hard to use (duh). The emblems were very fragile and did not stay together even though I handled them very carefully with the tweezers I had available to me. I purchased some precision tweezers and will use them on my next attempt. I have read many times on this site that the more times you do something the better the results you get. So I move onward!

  2. I have a question about placement of photo etched hood vents for the Revell '67 Chevelle 396 2n1. Do I place them on the topside or under the hood? I tried searching for images and found some but not very detailed. This is the first time working with photo etching and any help would be appreciated. Also, I don't have any etching tools for bending. Are there techniques to this? Specifically the PE part for the shift pattern for the floor console between the front seats. The console has a slight convex curve. Thanks. EDIT - On further inspection under a magnifying glass that section of the console is flat. These eyes of mine (I wear bifocals) are not what they used to be. I would still be interested in techniques on bending PE parts.
  3. Thank you all for the warm welcome! Like many of you growing up in the 60's and 70s' I had my go at model building. I built mostly glue bombs, did not paint very much, and I destroyed some of my creations with fireworks in the empty lot down the street. But I had a lot of fun! Then life got in the way and I didn't think much about model building until recently. I picked it up again about 2 years ago. Now that I am retired and have the economic resources and plenty of time I jumped back into it. I acquired a paint booth a compressor and an inexpensive airbrush. I also bought a ton of tools, kits and supplies. You can say that I jumped in with both feet. After looking around the forum it has inspired me to up my game. I mainly build 1/24 and 1/25 car kits and build to the box specifications. Now my challenge is to incorporate many of the ideas that I found on this forum. Anyway, thanks again for making me feel welcomed and I am looking forward to many years enjoying this great hobby again. This is one fantastic forum! Joe
  4. Welcome George. I am a new member myself. You will find lots of content here. From tips on model building to member's work in progress and everything else in between. This forum is a great place to lurk!
  5. Steve, Good tutorial. I have a old '58 Corvette build that I will try this technique on. I am just now learning BMF and this will come in handy.
  6. Watched and subscribed. I like your humor and enthusiasm. Thanks
  7. Thank you. Very informative. Choosing which glue to use is one of my weak spots so this post is helpful.
  8. Greetings, Just a few words about myself. I am retired (63 years old) and living in the great state of Washington. My hobbies include photography, growing indoor plants, reading and, of course, building plastic scale models. I came across this site by researching my current build. 57' Chevy Bel Air. I like the loads of info I found here and hope to contribute. Below is some pictures of my build in progress. Thanks.
