MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. I'm already mostly bald, so the "pulling my hair out" train left the station a LONG time ago!!
  2. Well done!! It represents that era very well.
  3. Great jobI I built this kit (and still have it) in the late 1970's. I would LOVE to find one and build it again
  4. Very nice!! Love those early/mid 60's Superstock and AFX cars!
  5. Thanks for the kind words and encouragement!
  6. Thank you for the kind words and for the suggestion. Your suggestions is a procedure that I have never seen before. I was very concerned about the age of the decals, particularly the large ones for the sides and used copious amounts of Micro Sol to keep them pliable, and then used Micro Set on all the decals (again because I was concerned with the age and how well they would settle) but I never thought about removing the original glue. Thanks for the idea for the future!
  7. As a lifelong open wheel fan and follower, I can say that this is COOL and very realistic! Well done!! I know it was aloof work, but you did a great job.
  8. Thank you for the kind words. I'll be honest....I held my breath the whole time I was putting those big decals on. I expected them to tear at any moment! I used almost a quarter bottle of MicroSol on just those two decals to get in an attempt to keep them soft and pliable, but you just never know. I got lucky and I know it!! As I noted on another comment, I had (and continue to) search(ed) for after market decals for this car, but they just don't exist at the present time.
  9. Thanks for the kind comment!! Yeah...and I've not found anyone that makes aftermarket decals for this car, so I'm kinda stuck!
  10. I just finished this one. This is the 1996 re-release of the Revell original. I built it box stock in that NO aftermarket parts were used. I did make a few modifications to get the stance the way I wanted it and to get the body to set down properly on the chassis. My biggest disappointment is the way the decals turned out. Unfortunately, several of the decals (primarily the white ones) never cleared up well, despite several applications of setting fluid. The decals are 26 yrs. old, so it is what it is, but it is disappointing to me. The body, chassis and chassis tins are painted with Tamiya TS-89 Pearl Blue over Tamiya AS-12 Bare Metal. Interior tins are Testors Aluminum. Comments welcome and thank you for looking
  11. Nice job!! I've got that same car on my shelf from about 20 years ago.
  12. WOW!! I realize the larger scale makes detail easier, but you did a magnificent job with the detail and realism of this build. Fantastic!!! i LOVE it!
