  2. Alzheimer's Please!!!!!

    Ah come on guys your bringing a tear to my eye. Seriously tho, building is in my blood I'm stashing kits and learning how to cast just so I never run out of kits. Um I might have access to one of the original Nomad kits, maybe one of those old metal model T kits, but I think it's listed for $79CDN. I'll let yeah know tomorrow what I've got. Now this is also a part of this great hobby/past time, I enjoy, helping fellow builders find kits. Sorry guys only read the post and first reply. Will do later. Curt
  3. Mr SKWIRLS and Gunthar das clown

    CB this is going down in my memory as one of the craziest and entertaining builds I've ever witnessed. Good on ya, really looking forward to seeing ya finish Mr. S up.

    Thanks CB. The smoke is painted, but it does need work., I'll post some more pics when I up load to photobucket. The foam thing is totally doable, ya just have to mess around with what ever works for you. I bought one of the dispencing guns that the cans screw into, it give ya a ton more control. I boughtit after I did this. I'm going to try a different method and material for smoke real soon. It'll be cast.
  6. '34 Parts Rat

    I spend way too much time fussing over details on a normal WIP that it takes me forever to get one done. So I built this as a Parts Rat, it gets me to finish something. I threw this together for a group build on another site, it'll be my entrant into the Dick Dasturdly (sp)build. The engine is some biga$$ V8 deisil. It's AWD with the front diff being driven off the crank. The engine and front diff run of a combined suspension. The diff, wheels and all are from some '30 sedan. And I flipped the grill upside down. Thanks for looking in on some of my work.
  7. model car art

    Cool looking stuff guys. If you want a FREE yes free bit of software that does all that you've all posted here. Google PhotoScape. I been able to "clean up" some pretty dark or too bright shot with this program.

  10. Major primer problem!

    LoL, sound good, here's a couple shots of the last bit of paint being peeled off. It's back in the acid pond for the next couple hours.
  11. Major primer problem!

    No problem, that's what makes the on-line community go 'round knowing you can turn to it for help. I just finished peeling, yes peeling, more paint off the Charger hood. I still have a large section on a corner and also an area on the body where the hood latch would be.

    The chop job looks good and the chassi looks nice a straight. Good start with this WIP.
  13. Junkyard rat - color

    Totally, I have to agree with ya Jantrix on the 1:1 rat trend. Although I enjoy the builds and WIP in scale that has become it's own trend in the scale world.

    Great looking WIP, your pics are just fine btw. I dig the white strip nice clean and crisp looking build. The shot with the car with only the doors and roof on has given me an idea for a future build, sort of a Ferrari street rod theme.
  15. Junkyard rat - color

    Thanks, of course there has to be rust spots. You guy who do the rust and beater weathering make it look so real, I'm going to have to give it a go real soon.
  16. Junkyard rat - color

    Here's an idea, what about the Almond tan with Olive trim and accents. Just my 2cent nothing more. I have to add I dig the headers and look forward to seeing this finished.
  17. Major primer problem!

    So how are ya makin' out so far?
  18. Major primer problem!

    Safeway should have it, just ask where the oven cleaner is, any brand should work as long as it's the heavy duty version. Try not to get it in a spray can tho, the fumes are very toxic. Let us know how you make out. Good luck.
  19. Wolfies "Mean Green" 40 Ford Gasser

    Totally awesome. No wounder the steering was a bit sketch, you missing the front panard rod. That thing must wander like wind sock in a warm summer breeze. I love the metal cancer effect.
  20. Major primer problem!

    Not to sound like a dic but, your spinning your wheels with the alcohol, the primer is solvent based, alcohol won't do a thing. The Easy- Off WILL WORK and you'll be back to square on in a couple of hours. I sprayed my Charger when I posted and almost all of the primer is off. I hope you get this sorted out. Cheers, Curt
  21. Major primer problem!

    First off let me say sorry to hear of such a f'ed up situation. No worries it can be saved. It brake fluid didn't work I'd be very surprised if Super Clean will do anything, the primer is lacquer based. Before you go to all the trouble of sanding the body go out and get yourself some Easy-Off in the yellow spray pump bottle, a couple of bottles. Empty the bottle into a conatiner just big enouogh fore the bug and fill it with the Easy Off. Leave it in there for 24-48hrs, the plastic won't be harmed. Plus if you go this route you'll have a chrome removal bath as well. I just just removed automotive lacquer for a 1/16 scale Charger that had so much paint on it the panel lines were, filled and the script was almost flush with the body. The paint had been on for along time 'cause the lady said her son built it when he was a kid, he's in his 40's now. I had picked it up at garage sale. For me it took about a month to get the paint off, mostly because I only sprayed the body once a day instead of soaking it. In the second picture you can see how thick the paint was, that row of bumps are supposed to be rivet heads. Just as an added FYI I still have to get the primer off. Good luck man hope you get it resolved.

  23. tintail

    The boat tail looks cool, I prefered the look of the black and rusty rivets, but that's just me. This will look very cool when your done with it.
