  1. Help What glues do you use?

    I use the Gorilla super glue a lot. Prefer the twin pack set at Lowes or Home Depot. It has more working time than the other super glues I have used in the past. I usually use a tooth pick for application as a little works quite well.
  2. I put 3 or 4 bb's in the jar when using metallic's pearls and alclad just a quick swirl and everything stays mixed.
  3. MCM Problems?

    Same thing here all day.
  4. I am in Long Beach just over the bridge from Cypress. I don't know how to pm so let me know if you want to meet.

    Pick up a copy of the new issue of Scale Auto. There is a how to by Ron Ramsay on making headers out of solder.
  6. Side Mirror Attachment

    I use the pin method for both mirrors and door handles.
  7. $30+ kits - hows it affect you?

    A great example is the e-mail I got from Auto World yesterday. 25% off all Lindberg kits, I checked out the 37 Ford roadster. List was $39.95 25% off is still $30.00.

  9. cogged blower belts ?

    Model Car Garage has a very nice blower drive set up with cogged belt.
  10. Testors Metalizer Question

    I have found that on plastic the buffing metalizer aluminum plate works best shot over bare plastic for the best results after buffing. Priming first gives a differ effect. For some reason it does not work the same on bare resin parts.

    What happened to this build? Looks like it was coming along great.
  12. Isn't the X-7 the bottled paint? I believe they are a acrylic paint that would not be compatable with TS-13 clear coat. Please correct me if i'm wrong. I have used TS-13 for several years and never had a problem over the Tamiya and Model Master lacquers Also have used Mr. Hobby clear with no issues.
  13. Does anyone have photos of the wheels that are in the 41Ford woody custom that was recently released?
