Interested to see how the R&M SCOT blower goes together, I've got a couple of these, the workmanship of these is "spot on" kinda' hesitant to build them, all those blower pulleys look quite daunting, especially to a "bumble fisted" builder like me. Also like the idea of using the 40 Ford rear cross member.
Thanks for the tip on how you did the Vortex air cleaners, They look exactly right. Recently got the grill and air cleaner mesh from Plano Model Products. You've really hit the nail on the head with this build, love the paint
With a little bit of work the Italeri 2 piece plastic tires are a perfect fit for the KW snap rims. Wheel spacer needs to be widened a bit. Always thought the kit tires are a bit skinny plus don't really fit the kit rims all that well
Following is how I use Alclad. First apply the gloss black, Alclad have there own gloss black ALC 304 but any enamel gloss black will do the trick, must be an enamel type paint, lacquers just don't work.
After the black has dried I then airbrush on their Alclad Clear Base ALC 303, it's a gloss clear designed to be applied after the gloss black has dried. This really leaves a very high gloss surface for the Alclad chrome, I then just mist the chrome on at around 15 psi on a 45 deg angle.
Alclad also have a clear that's designed to be a sealer coat over Alclad chrome. It's called Alclad Aqua Gloss ALC 600 this has a milky color in the bottle.This is designed to be applied after the chrome has dried, and makes it easier to handle without fear of the chrome finish being damaged..
