    I know how you feel man. I been in that spot myself more then once. You see a kit out there you don't really care about and you leave it there but always pasting it by all the time. Then one day you wake up and for some odd reason you now want the kit that you really didn't care much about before. You go to price check the model kit thinking it's low price because not many people are after them. Just to learn an find out the kit now has a big price tag on it an some folks are now looking for that kit an paying crazy amounts for it an kits like it. I been down that road like you all have.

    Maybe there was new coverage on the tv about that kind of vehicle or a movie made that used that style or something is all I can really think of. Or it can just be that the kits are getting older and they are more vintage then we thought they was.. or it could also be the demand for them also.

    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 like to work both things at times.

    I do belive it was used for filler.. but I could be wrong though.

    BTW, great work going on with this project, keep it up.

    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.

    Bump.. I thought maybe the two threads would help follow builders out.

    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.
