If the post is of a completed build....and I have something to ADD by posting a build I will. If my build is somehow complementary or demonstrates a different option.....something helpful ....no issue. You post as 'mine is better' it's just passive aggressive. Boils down to intent.....sharing or gloating.....
When my son and I did a ground up restore on my 66 2+2 we almost did the Shelby window in place of the louvers.....but as we wanted to be different we left them in.....and they do work so the added air is a plus!!!
For some reason the photo of my real Mustang project keeps being deleted from my post.......not sure why??? But this is my favorite Mustang project and I supervised it much like a model project.....so here she is.....
Great work on the conversion. I bought a few of those NB toys that looked close to 1/25 scale. I have only done anything to one of them.....the Cat dump truck.......I went more Tom Daniels on mine!!! Some die cast take offs wheels and tires.....parts box stuff and a new cab and details. These toys are good start points!!!!
The cracking has two causes I have found after 30+ years of use. 1. Every time I used it over Tamiya or other water based paint the Future had cracking issues. Per people that know more than I do.....it's a combo of slow dry time for the paint abd chemical reaction. I stopped using water base after that. 2. Solvent based paint 'gassing out' will cause Future cracking. Easy fix......use dehydrator to cure paint or allow paint to FULLY cure.....like a month or two. Following these rules I have not had the issue since 1981........thx
I remember buying the 'bag of 100', 3 different kinds, with cars, planes and trains......I have a handful of each around that I have found at shows etc.....what a deal....penny cars, planes and trains!!!
My house is built on a Yankee camp site at the base of Droop Mtn.....one of the last Civil War battles......growing up i So Cal it never crossed our minds!!! BTW some family members fought on both sides at one time or another!!!
