    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    I'm really digging this build!
  2. Bainford added a post in a topic CA Glue Brand Preference   

    I use Bob Smith CA glues as well. I appreciate the variety of viscosities available and my LHS carries the lot. I will also pick up cheap 'single use' 4 packs of Krazy Glue for random jobs.
    The only accelerator I use is BSI. With the exception of some particularly troublesome Tamiya acrylic once, I have never had a problem with the stuff attacking paint, plastic, clear, or chrome. I apply it with a small pipette.

    Slammer time! Love the mean look.
  4. Bainford added a post in a topic Pantera anyone?   

     The kit on the Testors box art looks a lot like a Gunze Sangyo kit I have.

  5. Bainford added a post in a topic braided radiator hose   

    de-soldering braid comes in several useful sizes and has a very accurate braid, but it is copper coloured so must be painted with the appropriate metaliser paint.

    Check out the drilled lower control arm.
  7. Bainford added a post in a topic K&R Kustoms+Rods "barn find" dry lakes belly tanker   

    It's hard to add to the previous comments, but WOW, did you ever nail the details on this. The weathering and engineering are superb. This has to be the finest scale belly tanker I have seen yet. Outstanding!
  8. Bainford added a post in a topic Another Russian retro-classic-sports limited production piece   

    Yeah, there is a lot of P1800 in there. The design requires refinement, but with some work I think I could like this. It is certainly different, and has more potential than most vehicles from that part of the world. Neat.
  9. Bainford added a post in a topic Mach 1 kit   

    The Macho Mustang is one of my favorite kits from my childhood. Be aware that this kit is all race car. No stock parts at all.
  10. Bainford added a post in a topic K&S foil roll for PE?   

    Beer can aluminum would work. It's about .004 - .006" thick and easy to work with. It's one of my favorite scratch building materials.
  11. Bainford added a post in a topic Haven't seen anything new in this series   

    The Special Edition moniker is meaningless. It's just marketing hype. Inside the box is a Revell model car kit. Nothing special about it.
  12. Bainford added a post in a topic Resurected 1962 Chrysler Imperial   

    Very nice restoration. Beautiful car.
  13. Bainford added a post in a topic Lotus at Indy - goodby roadsters   

    A beautiful Lotus 29. Nicely done!
  14. Bainford added a post in a topic Patent pending   

    Cool! That's two Revell oldies in the same day. Nice work on this quirky old rod. This kit and the T-Bone Stake always intrigued me as a kid. Nice job on this one. Very cool!
    Kind of makes me want to look for an old T-Bone
  15. Bainford added a post in a topic OOB Mysterion   

    This is freaking cool! Perhaps the tidiest build I've seen of this kit. Very well done.
