  1. Hi Bruno, 1st of all OUTSTANDING JOB on the “Outlaw” Pro Stock Racec?????. I’m actually wanting to do that exact same paint job on a 57 Chev ProMod that I’m building..( I already have the Slixx decal set, but I’ve never done a 3 Color paint job fading them like yours, (not with the Auto type paint & Urethane CC  anyway. I’d appreciate any tips or advice U can give me. I use the exact type Paints as U did...




  2. Well I bought that kit a while ago, my first Moebius kit! Tonight I opened it and I got a warped body too...
  3. Well, the fit was ok, other than sanding molding lines and cleaning flash, I would say it's a nice kit. The first kit I bought, the body was badly warped, and I ruined it while trying to fix it, so I bought another kit. The windows in both kits had very bad tire marks on them, I had to wet sand a lot and polish all the windows.
  4. You can see them in the first pic, it was late when we finished yesterday (we had to drive back home...) so we had no time to take better pics of the cars. I took those pictures of my Challenger this morning, and I don't have the other models here with me
  5. This one is a special project, with two friends, we got together and each one of us had to build a kit in one day. I chose the AMT 2010 Challenger R/T. The two friends had a Porsche (Tamiya) and a Ferrari (Revell), all curbside kits. The rules were simple, start a new kit, do the best we can with what we have and the time we have, and it must be finished the same day. We started around 9 in the morning and we all finished about the same time, around 8PM. So here's my Challenger, box stock, paint is Model Master Ultraviolet (rattlecan) and automotive two part urethane clear (airbrush) There were fit problems, goofs, some bad words were used, and we had lotsa fun! Special thanks to our 3 food dehydrators, which we abused all day long for curing paint and glue
  6. Just finished another one, this time an '84 Dodge Turbo Z, really like those little turbo cars. Old MPC kit built box stock, only added spark plug wires, paint is automotive basecoat / clearcoat
  7. Man that looks great! Nice job Gotta love those old funny cars
  8. This is the first Polar Lights funny car I build, those kits require some work to make them look nice, but I like them overall. Things I didn't like; - the slicks are in two piece - windows are too thick, I'll make my own windows next time - the blower belt is separate and rubber, which is a niece idea but here's how it looked A friend gave me a part of strap that comes from a printer he said, it's perfect for blower belts on 1/25 cars, so that's what I used Wheels were stripped and painted with Alclad polished aluminum
  9. Yeah, that's another nice funny car to build, for a guy like me that already has too many nice funny cars waiting to be built
  10. Just finished this one, I used the Polar Lights Tommy Grove Mustang Funny Car kit, with Slixx decals, and took the Hemi engine in the Polar Lights Hawaiian Charger Funny Car kit (the Frantic Ford had a Hemi in it) Paint is automotive basecoat / clearcoat. I also wired and plumbed it
