    Black that deep and no polishing . man . .that is BEAUTIFUL!
  2. Foxer added a post in a topic Weathering Tires   

    Yeah, that's the way I like to do it and rotate the tire in my hands as I stroke to keep it even.
  3. Foxer added a post in a topic Reinforcing Body Glue Joints   

    I got some Sig Glass Cloth from Sig Manufacturing Co. at Bill's recommendation. I got SIGGF003 Light Wt and it has worked out well for many splices and reinforced body areas. I may not be doing it exactly to his specifications but I typically apply a layer of epoxy over the joint then lay a piece of fiberglass over it. I'll press it into the epoxy with toothpicks or other object until it's buried. The one sheet I got will last me the rest of my life.

    I believe he mentioned last time on he had a pretty busy plate. And, I don't believe anything can take the Modeler out of Peter ... probably just a matter of time.

    That is major ... chassis painted in final color! ... I usually take a week off, myself, after such a milestone.

    Just the painting Black is evil to me, but that does look evil .. and that black looks fantastic!

    I used to take my Porsches to a Jaguar place that raced and did a lot of customer race car work. They always had old Jags and always an engine sitting all alone ... I would always stop to gaze over that amazing piece of art!

    Yeah, I've been searching ebay for a few years for a Heller kit of the Coupe so I'm really happy to see they have put it out again! A Revell coupe will be a parts kit maybe ..no other use for it.

    My father was a carpenter and he would have got me one for XMass if Harbor Freight was around then !

  14. Foxer added a post in a topic Removing hard rubber promo tires from rims?   



    Very interesting. That tall clamp has 1.5" spread. I don't need much more than 1/4" or so to press the tire out. I should be able to use pretty short lengths of tubes or dowels. Warming the tire with a hair dryer as I press should help too. I'll have to see what I have to rig that up. I'm waiting until I get the new rims before doing anything, though. I like this idea a lot.

    The lawn furniture may be the tough part. That's going to be fun raining on that.
