  2. hey guys, i'm a bit out of my usual model zone with this project, so i came here with a question. i'm doing a project for a customer who wants a petty car done. my question is where can i find "petty blue" paint? any help is greatly appreciated...........steve
  3. i've used the purple degreaser for years. even forgot parts in the bucket once or twice. never had a problem with it. cuts paint real good, and doesnt smell like oven cleaner..................steve
  4. heres another angle. the rear down tubesare inverted inward. two down tubes were added in the front. front shock mounts were changed. front bumper is changed. the rear suspension will be leaf spring. working on front motor plate and tranny mount
  5. ok guys. heres the start of a new build. a scratch built tobias frame. more pics to come as i add more to it. thanx for lookin'
  6. nobody in particular. always liked orange and white. in the process learning how to do decals, soon as i get it right it will be numbered and lettered
  7. here are some pics of the latest one. i couldnt get them on here, but they are at http://photobucket.com/pibull63 check them out, let me know what ya think. thanx for looking
  8. hey crazyjim, thats a pretty slick trick. i gotta remember that one. but doesnt the cold turn the plastic brittle? just wondering.
  9. looks pretty sweet. did you use a rattle can or airbrush?
  10. i had a harbor frieght air brush. iwas surprised to get a few years use from it. i just got a badger cresendo 175 from michaels a few weeks ago. price was $150.00 the girl at the register had a 40% off coupon she gave to me and it knocked the price down to $85. i went away happy. seems to be working quite well, i have real good results with it. it is a dual action brush, came with 3 needles, 3 tips and 2 jars. no hose.
  11. my first idea would be a sanding drum. unless you have acess to a lathe, you could bore it
  12. the way i make my headers is with aluminum welding wire. the collecters, i use a plastic drinking straw. its flexible enough so when you slide it over the headers, it stretches just a bit. i dont even glue it on. just leave it, because it is so tight. try it and let me know how you make out
  13. i gotta agree with davkin. i like the changes, but its your kit. if ya spend your time pleasing everyone else, you'll make yourself nuts. just my .02
  14. there are several ways to make rust. one is to take steel wool #oooo, put it in a glass jar, (mason), fill the jar with vinegar. leave the lid loose, as this mixture will give off gas as it rots the steel wool. when it is evaporated, youcan brush it on anything and it will give a rusty haze. this works good for diaramas, because it gives wood a weathered look. another is a product called ROTTENSTONE. it makes anything look old and weathered. i used it years ago on my railroad with excellent results. i got it at a craft store, i believe. its been years since i have used it, but i believe it is still available
  15. i'll put my two cents in......how bout a space hover vehicle? why i thought of that i don't know. but, thats the first thought that came to me. i think i've been inside too long
