    I think it was Tamiya TS3 Dark Yellow. I'll check the can to confirm when I get home.

    Cool idea so far. 
    For the rack on this wagon:

    I just used round styrene. I rolled a blade on the rod at each node, then painted a base color, highlight color, then a wash on the node.

    Dave - I can't tell from the other posts if you have received these or not. I just built a 1/24 Monogram '71 Cuda and didn't use the wheels. PM me your address and I'll drop them in the mail.

  6. Erik Smith added a post in a topic The slippery slope of banning donk wheels   

    Tha article is about banning the conversion of street vehicles to race only - hence to control or limits on emission controls. It has no implications, as written, for street vehicles that are already regulated for emissions. 
    This has nothing to do with safety. The EPA doesn't regulate that. They regulate the emissions and that is what they are doing here. You can still have a street car, subject to regular emission standards, and modify within those rules.

    Great work on a boring car, my neighbor has some similar variant. White paint is a modeler's nemesis...yours looks excellent, though.

    Heller's gone mad.

    You would need to be a superhero with x-ray vision to drive it...

    Looks like a small block chevy?...

    Kia? Probably more Kias on the road than Ramblers, Studebakers, and Nashs combined.

    Very cool. Thanks for building it! I haven't seen a completed one before.

    I haven't tried it in clear plastic. Judging by the perfor
    ance on regular plastic, if your window glass fit well, I think it would hold. If you had to clamp or tape your glass in and the joint would be under pressure, I don't know. Maybe, maybe not. It does help if you rough up the surface, but that might not be easy on clear parts. 
    Bondic does work for quick filling of holes etc - just fill, light, repeat.

    Looks to be exact same stuff as Bondic (looking at applicator, etc).
    I haven't been overly impressed with Bondic's ability to hold plastic together.
