  1. dartman added a post in a topic How many people fully detail a model?   

    I get caught up in the detail it to the max but lately I been just the basics.My models get put in a showcase  and put on a shelf and so
    nobody's  going to see any of it. It is also hard to do with my health issues so just the basics mam just the basics.....

    lacquer
    I have a question about Testors one coat lacquer.I used this on the roof of the car I am building.There is over spray on the lower body an I need to
    ask if regular automotive lacquer in a spray bomb is to hot to go over said over spray.Use what I have or wait a few weeks till I can get a can of
    one coat?What do ya think?

  6. dartman added a post in a topic What are your 2016 building plans.   

    I would like to finish a few that I have started.These kits are 64 Chevy super shaker, 62 Pontiac,41 Willy's,68 Hemi Dart among
    others.With my mind set and dexterity in my hands,some times all I can do is sit and stare at them.Doing the small bits is some
    times just impossible.

    I work in the spare bedroom in our apartment but I share my model area with my woodwork stuff.The shelf in the closet is full of
    kits.I also have to share the closet with my lathe and tooling.
  8. dartman added a post in a topic Speaking about Stash Size........   

    As I get older it is easier for me to walk away and buy nothing.I dont know if I am getting cheap in my old age or if something else 
    is happening.When I was at H L I stood and looked and looked but just left and went home with nothing.This the second month I did
    this. My wife thought I was sick.

    Anyone notice it looks like the wheels are on wrong on this truck? It looks like the wheel on the front has the floating hub and the rear is long and narrow
    like for a locking hub.

    I use Easy Off for chrome and purple power for paint.Easy off takes chrome off in seconds to minutes.
