      Maintenance Complete   07/19/2018

       The maintenance went very smoothly. With the recent database problems, a table got very very big, and needed some surgery. You should experience any changes.

    Received this old Hubley 32 Chevy and decided to give it a try!The kit was missing the decklid so I thermoformed one out of plastic .I did not like the spare tire carriers molded inyo the front fenders,so I cut them out and filled the openings with plastic and putty.Came out well.
  9. Came out pretty well!

  11. Okay thanks for the tips!
  12. Recently received this incomplete diecast Hubley 32 Chevy in trade.Missing the trunk lid so I cut a piece of sheet styrene slightly oversized and clamped it to obtain the correct curvature.The plan is to immerse it in boiling water and allow it to cool.
