    I got a dehydrator finally ..been looking and reading about them for a long time and figured it was time. It has been in almost constant use since arriving ... drying paint and warming the cans. Thanks to all here who guided me towards this unit .. I'm very happy with it!

     
    I also got an Arbor Press from Micro Mark, but to use as a pin vice holder for perfectly vertical holes. I'm happy with it but haven't used it for the circular hole pattern on some wheels I need it for. Have to rig up an index to evenly space the holes.

    That steering wheel is pretty incredible, Steve! I still have a had time believing it's stretched sprue  ..

  6. Foxer added a post in a topic Stretching Sprue   

    This is a technique I've tried and failed at many times. It just requires too much control for the minimal results. Plastic rod is available down to at least .02" and I would rarely need anything smaller, so I don't get why anyone would go through this for something that has a constant taper to it and is readily available .. unless the taper is needed. I am amazed at some results from people who have mastered this.

    Probably a photo of what you're looking for would help narrow down the answers.

    Do not be embarrassed ... the Violati family is for real and they own the one missing 250 GTO. Just Ricardo is a figment of my imagination .. ehhe.

    This is the first I've even heard of this brand of paint. Can anyone expand on this?
  10. Foxer added a post in a topic Tamiya TS-94 paint   

    I can only answer your question limited as I don't have the other colors to compare, but I love TS-94 Metallic Grey and I use it often for metallic parts as an alternate to Metalizers. I wouldn't hesitate to get this paint as it has become one of my staple colors. It is lighter than any gunmetals I have any is a medium grey.

    The engine, chassis and interior are done except for a little paint touch ups noticed in these photos.
     





     
    The body needed some rust, but being aluminum I decided to try some corrosion on an unpainted door. It's not perfect but I think it will do. I used flat aluminum first on the door them some steel dabbed around. Some very light grey in lower corroded areas with some actual dirt dropped on the wet pain. Finally some flat white dry brushed on the grey.
    What does everyone think of the look?
