  1. Looks awesome “ my name is harry canyon. I drive a cab. “ ” hey you free?” ” Ya get in” ” where to pal” ” the UN building “ ” UN building what a joke. They turned it into low rent housing. “ ” ok sucker hand over your cash. Now!” zzzzzzzzzppppppp * screams in agonizing pain “ sigh “ stupid asshole, nobody touches harry canyon unless I want them to “ I was 13 when i saw that first time in 81. Never saw cartoon sex before that movie. lol I’ve watched it literally 1000s of times since. Owned it on every format it’s been released on. I know every single line. It’s my favourite movie ever. Excellent choice for a build 🤘
  2. That occurred to me a while ago. I’ll take a look when i get back home. If it doesn’t look any better I’ll warm it up with a hair dryer a little bit then let it cool off. See how it looks after the chassis is removed.
  3. Is this warped? There’s a slight curve as you can see but I’m not sure if that’s how it’s supposed to be edit; here is a slightly better picture
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. It didnt come tearing out of there, but i probably would have lost it had i not used the bag.
  7. Sound silly but hell I'm gonna do it anyway! Thanks! I'll let ya know how it works out!
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. ...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
  11. 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.
  12. Have you found that chassis how to? It's by Thumper. I have it on my computer somewhere if you still need it
  13. Also dont pull the tape off vertically...pull it back on itself, more or less parallel to the body.
  14. 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
  15. 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?
  16. i LOVE IT! I've always loved the look of Hot Wheels cars...especially the rims. You've nailed the look!
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. It's ok, I was genuinely amused. Spending all that money just to drill a hole in a .75 cent piece of styrene
