    Resin. Polyester or polyurethane?
    Ok I am bit of a casting virgin but what is the difference and what are the advantages of each resin. I have asked this on other sites but not had a really clear answer though I believe casters such as Modelhaus used polyurethane.
    Help me please as I have lots of polyester resin and thought it may be some use but........?
    Cheers, John

  2. HotRodaSaurus added a post in a topic How much have you spent on a build?   

    Tamiya Lola T70. Kit for £79 + spray paint, other paint, foil, new glue. No photo etch for this back in the 90s so time like most of us was the main event. probably came to around £150.

    Monogram's Rommel's Rod has both an officer cap and infantry steel helmet on the skeletons. A bit of silicon, some resin and you are on your way

    I need to know how accurate are the figures of Jungle Pam, Linda Vaughn and Elvira(Cassandra Peterson)  (posts 11-12 hehe)

    Love these little cars, just right for our European crowded little streets.
    A French model kit company called Record did a model kit of this and the more sporty looking Floride, both in 1/24 or 1/25. They sell for loads if you can find one.
    Record still exist but concentrate on 1/43 die casts or resins now.

    Nice model, I built it in 1/32 for slot racing.
    The real thing looks as fresh today as it did then.
  7. HotRodaSaurus added a post in a topic Monograms Black Widow.   

    Very nice   Love the old paint display
    I had heard the re release is not the same moulding as the original, true or false?
    I have an original that needs restoring in the wings at the moment. For sale-keep-for sale-keep-for sale-keep? Not sure at the moment, love these old Monograms

    I really like this but don't get the chance to build much these days but there are a few projects and half finished kits stashed away.
    One of my to do projects was one of these, bought like yours, built but unpainted, or at least stripped, also a lot of the details sanded off. Not really sure what to do, sell or build(one day) with it but this does give me inspiration.
    My real question here is what kit did your wheel covers come from please. 
    Cheers, J

    That would be right at home at the 'Wasteland Weekend'. 
    No one has mentioned it so here is a link to an episode of Jay Leno's Garage.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EP5dJYQtfEU 
    Hope it works, if not there is a YouTube feature on the 'Weekend'

    Not seen that issue before  a little more help, thanks.
  11. HotRodaSaurus added a post in a topic Anyone got a link for how to chop an AMT 49 Mercury   

    I have to say , THANKS to just about everybody here for their replies  I'll read through the lot over a few times. I did have the Barris custom books at one time but alas, no more. I remember the quartered roof, yes it did look a mess and I thought it HAD to be done that way.
    One thing I remember about the Revell chopped Merc is the front screen did not look that realistic for some reason. Some great parts in the kit though.
    Cheers all

    Looks a bit like the Jack Calori coupe from the cover of a 1949 Hot Rod magazine, though that had Buick skirts.
    Does this kit come with a pre-chopped top?

    Anyone got a link for how to chop an AMT 49 Mercury
    I have the Revell kit for the bits but also an old stock AMT Mercury. I would like the challenge of how to do it the old fashioned way. Anyone built one or got a link? 
    Cheers, John.
