  1. Yeah I bent and filed a lot, lucky my build was patina so it wasn't an issue peeling off the body multiple times. I had to superglue the chassis so the car wouldn't sit so high. I didn't have nearly this much trouble building the 67 coupe in high school. I wouldve figured the front half is same
  2. I'm pretty sure the nova is a brand new kit, it looks pretty modern, just done in the original style
  3. I'm working on one now, and what an awful kit. I clearanced the rear of the interior tub to let the chassis settle in better, and made tabs so the back of the chassis would have somewhere to locate, but when I assembled the interior and glass, there was more interference! When I set the rear of the chassis, the front comes out, when I set the front, the rear comes out.. Anyone ever figure out what to modify to make this car buildable? You'd never think that these are the same people that make the 63 nova wagon
  4. I sent him an email, I'd love to get an " ornery otto" kit
  5. I like to use molotow chrome pens, kinda scared of foil haha.. that color looks great, Im always looking for 60s 70s style rattle can colors
  6. Easy, but gets expensive if you have to do it too often
  7. I mostly worry about ugly/ incorrect style tires, since I've heard some complaints about the 1/16 vega ones
  8. He used the amt 66 nova chassis
  9. I've heard about the hardtop but I really hope you're right!
  10. I think mooneyes should have something you can use
  11. This is one of those clears that you gotta do everything within 2 hours or wait "48" although I think it has to be more I do your method with Mr hobby UV clear, however
  12. I'm afraid of BMF. Ive been using molotow for a while now,, but normally over mr hobby or testors lacquer clear. Maybe one day I'll get fed up and try. Just got back into the hobby last year and been trying to learn and do new things
  13. So this body was drying for about 4 days, half the time in a dehydrator. I ran some molotow on the inside of the body and it was good, so I painted on the trim and this happened. This 1k stuff is pretty good paint, its just that I can't wait 2 weeks or however long it'll take to do my trim work
  14. It doesn't craze styrene.. well, I shot it over a bare / poorly prepped revell body and it looked pretty good
  15. I saw a bunch of their old wire wheels on an Instagram post from modelroundup yesterday
  16. Have you considered the monogram f250 and the older monogram cab?
  17. These cars all all shot with nail polish cut about 50% with lacquer thinner. Here in hawaii its harder to get nice colors, just use a good primer. Tamiya or duplicolor primer sealer works good for me Revlon and CVS brand nail polish seems to lay pretty good. Haven't tried OPI and Essie yet
  18. The revell 68 charger has some too, although not pictured on the box
  19. I only caught this little piece on the Model Roundup Instagram
