Hi guys, I'm trying to figure out how to delete old PMs on here since the change over, so please bare with me on the PMing par. For the two folks that tried to PM me, I'll get back to ya around midnight here. Thanks for understanding an lettering me know about the PMing issue.
I like to use brass at times over plastic & styrene as brass holds shape better then plastic & styrene. But building with brass can slow ya down at times unlike with styrene where you don't need heat an you can move along at a good pace. Plus with brass, it doesn't warp to much.
I'm not sure what happen to them either. I went back through an I see what you all are talking about with a group of numbers.. that's strange. I only seen one photo that showed up. If you like, I can repost a few of the photos. I also have some new ones to get uploaded as well.
I been working for the last 6 months on some correct rims for on this project. I don't want to go resin or plastic on it. I want to go more correct on the rims. Have about 5 projects on the go right now. I will post some photos maybe over the weekend.
I mostly use the Dollar Store "Elmers" spray glue which runs around here at 4.50 a can. But I guess you could use any kind of spray glue. I just pick which side I want either dull or shinny an spray the opposite side with the glue, wait about 5 minutes for the glue to get tacky. Cut a chunk big enough for the area I'm working in an start at the center point an work out in both directions with foil with a q-tip or my finger. If the glue on the sheet drys or gets to untacky for you, just give it another light coat is all of spray glue.
I been using spray glue & aluminum foil trick for years for model car builds. To be honest it sure out past hobby bmf stuff I would say by a long shot an looks more real as well. Why worry about a shelf life of bmf sheets when you can make your own very easy plus when you want it or need an have the choice of dull look or shinny look just by a side of a single piece.
