    My question is, where do you buy Embossing Powder ? I'd like to give it a try on my next build.

    Maybe this is what Todd is referring to as " Clear Coat ". That's what came to mind when I first saw his post.

    You make some very good points Howard.  As you know, we have 5 hobby shops in our area of Durham Region and the eastern part of Toronto. I buy from all 5 as well as the internet shops, Ebay and yourself. What I can't get from the LHS I get from other sources. So, I think that I spread my cash around the hobby and support everyone, both brick and mortar stores and online ones.

    I agree 100%.The best 18 bucks I've spent on  reference material in a long time.

    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should...

    From what I got from the artical, the decal sheet only does the 4 car. Maybe Patto will do a full sheet to do both. But it's a nice kit to add to my Corvette shelf.

    Try using plan white vinegar. This is used as a poor mans developer in black and white film development. It might work on the off set plates.

    Me too.

    I just hope that it has a full decal sheet with nothing missing. But that won't be the case, at least the aftermarket will hopefully do a fill in sheet.

    What are you going to do? Are you trying to make a plate or are you just wanting to strip the coating from the plate. You can just use water to remove the coating as it's water soluble.

    Before there was BTO, Randy and Fred formed Brave Belt and put out one album under that name before becoming BTO.

    The Guess Who, BTO, Max Webster, FM, Lighthouse, Goddo, Zon, Rush, Madd Cats, Jeff Healy Band, The Spoons, Honeymoon Suite.
  13. kitbash1 added a post in a topic An old story about the Revell '54 Sedan Delivery, and a Hot Jack Knife...   

    Hmm, stove as a heat source, and knives being used. I remember a smell much nicer than melting plastic...

    You can also try to make a template of the area you need to foil with masking tape. I use the dollar store tape, as it's got a little less tack to it, and cut it slightly over sized. I then remove the tape template and apply it to the foil and cut out the shape I need.
  15. kitbash1 added a post in a topic Revell Goodyear Sports Car Specials...which kit?   

    Do you mean these resin tires. I have done a few for my 60's and 70's Trans-Am builds. Let me know if you want a set.
