  1. So I've been out of building for a few years. I just found out that Testors has discontinued ther Metalizers! Thats so stupid. Anyway, is there an alternative to the Metalizers? Aside from Alclad that is. Mike
  2. Thats just wicked. Your builds never cease to impress. Question though. You don't have to answer but I've been dying to know for years. When it's all completed, how much money have you spent on the aluminum and after market details.
  3. It didnt come tearing out of there, but i probably would have lost it had i not used the bag.
  4. Sound silly but hell I'm gonna do it anyway! Thanks! I'll let ya know how it works out!
  5. My plunger has jammed. I haven't used it in a few years. So i'm going to disassemble it and clean it out. Maybe use a little needle juice on it. The question I have for anyone who's done this before is this. Part A-23A is holding back a spring. Is there so much tension on this little thing that it'll go shooting across the room? I'm a little hesitant because of this. lol I haven't touched anything model related ina few years, so i'm a little gun shy i guess Mike
  6. None of this work is mine. I didn't create anything within the Tutorials and Diagrams folders. I accumulated these over the years via Google Image Searches. The Brians Model Cars content I got from the BMC Forum , posted by B to keep the content available. Diagrams Tutorials Enjoy. --- Mike
  7. ...tires for the Revell 57 Chevy Pro Mod SB series? I moved 4 or so years ago and I'm just now getting back into it. Seems I've misplaced those tires. Or sold them when I sold 95% of my hobby. If anyone has a set of front and back I'd appreciate it. However you'd like to complete the transaction is up to you. I've never bought or sold online before. --- Mike
  8. I love my touch n flow...until i found this. https://www.greathobbies.com/productinfo/?prod_id=DXMAC11 I find it works a little better than the touch n flow.
  9. Have you found that chassis how to? It's by Thumper. I have it on my computer somewhere if you still need it
  10. Also dont pull the tape off vertically...pull it back on itself, more or less parallel to the body.
  11. The issue with the engines is the mating edge on part 2 is narrower at the front than it is at the rear. I'd rather replace it than work it and make it fit. --- Mike
  12. I just started building these kits, and noticed an issue with both engines. Does anyone know where I can get aftermarket engine replacements for these 2 kits?
  13. i LOVE IT! I've always loved the look of Hot Wheels cars...especially the rims. You've nailed the look!
  14. Thats too bad. I may be wrong, but they hobby seems to be as strong as it ever was, retailers are just not carrying the products any more. Our LHS closed down a few years ago after the owner had a heart attack. His son didnt want to keep the store open, he said it's a dead hobby. Meanwhile there were always customers and i know it was making money. A few months ago an RC shop opened up, they carry models but their prices start at $50 for a kit. At those prices, I'll be shopping online more.
  15. Like the picture above, nestling lengths of styrene or aluminum rod would probably be the best way to do it. Any idea of the size from smallest to largest I'd need to achieve this? If my LHS was still open all I'd have to do is take a walk down there and slide the smallest piece of rod into the next size and so on. But these days I have to order online, and since I'm bad with sizes that are displayed with the numbers on the right hand size of the decimal point I'll need a little guidance. It may save me from ordering a bunch of stock I just dont need.
  16. It's ok, I was genuinely amused. Spending all that money just to drill a hole in a .75 cent piece of styrene
  17. Yes I found this on youtube. Thanks but I'm going to be drilling the end of .080 hex rod so i can make my own A/N fittings.
