    You can't beat that.  Make a gasser out the donor car.

    Lance, That's probably about right. I sold these when we had the store for $19.00 and that was 9 yrs ago.
     
    Thank you, dragzz,  I should post that build.

    It's hard to tell in your photo but it almost looks like it was sprayed too close and too heavy. The too heavy is easy to do with the Testors nozzles. just before I spray I wipe everything down with plain old Rubbing Alcohol and NEVER  touch the surface with bare hands.  I have not seen a fish in 20 years.  
    Practice on junk plastic or plastic spoons until you figure it out.

    Lance, That would be the one if it's a Tamiya. The wire spreaders are adjustable and will work on most 1/18. The flat turntable is great and comes with clips you hold parts with. I have two sets and really like them. This is a GMP 32 Ford and you can see the there is still one more hole to go.  They should be a $22.00? for the set.

    Kevin,  I never use the cheap Testors line due to it's poor quality. I have had a lot of issue with the Model Masters sprays but it's only nozzle issues.  Most of their nozzles spray way too heavy mist and even splatters that will ruin a paint job real quick.  I save any nozzle that sprays fine, even from the large cans and use them when needed. 
    I have been using Dupli-Color Acrylic Lacquer lately and find it very nice.
    What is actually happening with you paint jobs?

    I have had good luck with a few different clears except the enamels.  This cab was painted with Createx and clear coated with cheap Mod Podge Acrylic clear.  It won a trophy at the local model contest.  For the last couple of years now I have been using Dupli-Color Acrylic lacquer clear over this paint and and the MM lacquer paints with great success.

    Not sure if it's still available but they also had a Flat Lacquer, Dull Coat. It works great if you want the faded out look.

    41 Dodge Power Wagon Stacey David's Sgt Rock
    1941 Dodge Power Wagon from the TV show Gearz.  It is 1/64 diecast and is nicely detailed for that size. 
    A portion of the proceeds go to The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
