    Avoiding blower cutout groove ghosting
    I have a vintage sourced AMT kit with the rectangular groove in the bottom of the hood. The one you cut open for a blower. I want to make sure that groove doesn’t “ghost” through the finished paint on topside when it gets time to finish it. Any ideas?

    Maybe the next owner will think of that. Seems like the proverbial ReMax sign never goes away at their offices.

    I avoid enamels for washes, as it is petroleum based. When you wipe it off the high points, you risk removing the chrome plate.

    How about later issues of the '53 Hornet? The stock cars? The convertible?

    Detail Q on all the Hudson kits
    I'm finishing up the first issue of the '53 Hornet. Moebius didn't include a decal for the rear trunk's "TWIN H POWER" emblem. Do any of the newer Hudson issues have it? Thanks in advance.

    Attaching fine detail w/ clear
    I have a small emblem I made, that needs to go on the car body. I was thinking of using clear paint. I don't currently have any bottled clear enamel, but I do have clear Tamiya in a bottle. Will that work?

    Acid core solder. I found out the hard way never to use it again.

    Which is exactly what I would do, regardless. It's not a toy (to me), don't need to roll.
