    Every model you build is a learning experience. Have fun at it, enjoy and cherish the progress you make.

    Alan:

    There is the IPMS / Will - Cook chapter that holds their meetings in Homewood, the third Friday of every month in a church basement. There are about a dozen or so active members and for the most part they're plane, tank and ship builders but "car guys" are more than welcome too. I'm a member of the club but I had to take some time away because money is tight, wife is looking for a new job and I just had knee surgery, so I'm on medical leave from my job. FYI - I live on the East Side just north of Hegewisch.

    I am so sad to hear of such a loss. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

    Nathan, I like how you made those headers look.

    As a suggestion, give those pipes a quick blast of Testors DullCoat as a final effect.

    Awesome progress, so far!!

    Those are some good looking models you have there, Nathan.

    I pretty sure Mike's Decals will be doing that Mello Yellow car as a PowerSlide decal sheet at some point. I'll hold off doing that car until then.

    You captured the look of the real car perfectly.

    I love seeing all your stock car builds from long ago.

    Question about Bare Metal Foil
    When do you apply the BMF?
    Before or after clear coating the body?

    Thanks,
