  1. Mr. Mopar, Thank You for the link. Just ordered the hood. Thanks, larry
  2. Any resin casters make a MPC 1969 Dodge Coronet hood. Thank you. larry
  3. Looks like a great product, but it is $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ The sample kit is 80. from the mfg web site. If you want to start resin casting, visit www.smooth-on.com They have many online videos for learning casting and making molds. Link to starter kit. https://www.smooth-on.com/products/pourable-silicone-starter-kit/ I purchased the starter kit several years ago.
  4. https://www.acme.com/licensemaker/ Free license plate maker. Make the plate and then right click on the plate image and select COPY (from the drop-down window that displays the options ). Place the image in Microsoft Publisher or WORD or your favorite image editing program to resize to 1/25 scale. Size is approximately 3/8" X 3/16". If you have a color printer, print on white card-stock paper. If you want a glossy look, spray the plate with Testors Gloss clear lacquer (or similar). For a photo finish , have the image printed at Office Depot on Photo Paper. Cost = about 1.50 per page. Make many license plates to fill the page.
  5. Need to make a rear window for the AMT 1960 Mercury Hardtop. It has curves on the sides. I have .007 clear -lay film. Works great for simple front or flat windows. Any suggestions for the Merc rear window. Thank You, larry
  6. Hello, Anyone in the San Diego, Ca area receive the current issue of Model Cars Mag yet. Thank You, larry
  7. Thank You for all the replies. I purchased the Coca Cola version (the price was right !!!) Included are five sets of wheels. 2 sets of 5-spoke mags and 3 sets of dog-dish caps. In comparison to the original IMC VW, the PL is 1/8" wider and 3/8" longer. Everything looks correctly scaled. Will be making a 1962 VW Convt from this kit. Thanks.
  8. is the polar lights DC Comics Harley Quinn VW Beetle the same scale as the Polar Lights Coca-Cola VW Beetle Are they both 1/24 or is the Coca Cola version actually 1/25 scale. Appreciate your replies. Thanks
  9. Anyone have the stock version of the 1972 AMT or MPC Vega Wagon kit . Need the length of the body. Appreciated, larry
  10. The testors PHOENICIAN Yellow is almost the same as GM Butternut Yellow. Many Chevy's (65 thru 67) are this color. I always use a white primer under the P-yellow. Color reference charts http://www.autocolorlibrary.com/
  11. Tom Rat-T, The Testors PHOENICIAN YELLOW TEStors #28102 is available at any hobby shop that sells Testors paints. If it's not on the shelf, just ask to have it ordered. I order the Testors automotive lacquer paints from Hobby Town. Hobby Lobby also sells the lacquer paints (use the 40% off coupon to save some $$$). Testors web site : https://www.testors.com/product-catalog/testors-brands/model-master/auto-lacquer-paint/sprays when the color chart displays, just place the cursor on the color for the specific name. I have painted with just about all the colors and they are all great. They do require a clear coat for a modern finish. Testors high Gloss lacquer clear # 28139 – Ultra Gloss Clearcoat 3 oz Spray Also have used Duplicolor Clear. larry
