    Thanks again for all of the info. I think that I'll pick up a Super Stock Bel Air kit. The boat will need a tow vehicle and I like that body style.

    Best detailed 1/25 or 1/24 348/409 Chevy
    Opps I put this in general section. It should have been here.
    Which 1/24 or 1/25 kit has the most detailed 348/409 Chevy engine? I'm not cocerned about the intake manifold or headers. Well maybe the three 2 barrel manifold would be OK
    Thanks,Smokey

    The tube and liquid mix is strong also.

    Does ProWeld have a brush in the bottle?

    We just got home from dinner at a Thia place and we learned that soy sauce and brown sugar go good together also.

    Thanks for the input guys...Smokey

    Mixin' styrene cement types
    Hi All,
    I like to see other folks ideas. Thanks to all that participate. This seems to work out OK so I'll pass it along.

    I'm learnin' as I go and this is just a couple things that I did with glues. I'd like to hear other ideas or thoughts.

    I'm likin' Tenax 7R but it sets too fast...Testor's Liquid sets to slow... a 50%/50% mix of the two is nice. The bond is strong.

    Testor's tube is stringy and thick... but on a palette a small blob of Testor's tube glue with a drop of Testors liquid mixed in mixes into a gel with no strings.
    It's curin' as I'm typin' this so the final results will come later.

    Yep, it's been that long ago. George is a friend of mine and while I've been in and out of the hobby over the years he has been steady in it.
    I have not done the emblem thing either.

    Have fun,Smokey
    This is a test...This is the first time that I did the quote thing on this site.

    I'm a hot rod and custom guy. "Emblems,emblems we don't need no stinkin' emblems"... But, I'll be watchin' just in case....

    I've seen it done with a dab of epoxy. Then sanded down from the back until only the emblem was left. I think the George Bojaciuk did it in one of the magazines
    years ago.

    This worked so far for me but...I'll be watchin' this thread for more ideas...

    I just modified a Deal's Wheels "Trans Um" hood and nose to look a bit less cartoony. Used a piece of .040" evergreen sheet for a hood with .020"x.100" evergreen strips under the seams with Tenax/Testors Liquid. I shaped and sanded the heck out of it and it's still OK.

    Edit below...
    I don't want this to change or highjack this tread. If there are any ideas or comments about the glue idea lets start a different thread.

    The Testors Liquid and Tenax 50/50 and it appears to be a strong bond with a bit more workin' time than just Tenax.
