      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    So using Tamiya polishing compound (finishing), I was able to get most of the enamel off without any apparent damage to the lacquer.  We'll see what happens next ...

    I'm trying to fight just that problem with this build!   Touch up, fix rear glass, fix wheels ... done! (maybe???)

    I'll give it a try. If I want to repaint the black (it's a molded-in door handle), I assume I need to really wash the car body after using Novus?

    Removing Testors Enamel From Tamiya Lacquer w/o damaging the Tamiya Lacquer?
    I have a car body I've painted w/ Tamiya Spray Lacquer, and I'm really happy with the result.  I've done most of the trim in Testor's Enamel, and it looks good so far.  However, I managed to really booger up one spot.  Is there a way to remove the Testor's without damaging the Tamiya paint?
     
    thanks!

    For what it's worth, I stopped in at a Hobby Lobby today while visiting family.  Wouldn't you know it - there was one 1930 Revell Ford Coupe on the shelf.  I bought it.   So, I suppose there are at least a few still in the wild.  Maybe not dozens, but at least a few.  Good hunting!

    Getting there ...
    I had to recreate the front glass, due to the original being damaged.  I used the original as a pattern and cut the new piece from clear plastic.  Decent, I suppose.  The gear shift, I now realize, is hugely oversized.  I lifted it from some junker that was in the spares box. It'll have to do.  
    I need to (still) clean up the trim around the gas cap and the front of the car.  I think a wash around the panel lines would be a good idea.  
    Remaining tasks - clean up the wheels; paint and install the rear hatch and quarter windows, paint the door handles and locks.

    Well said, Tom.  Totally agree on all points. 
    Now ... I sure hope Revell brings us a 29 / 30 Ford one day.   Meanwhile ... I'll be rooting through my stash of other cars, trucks, and planes.

    Wish these were re-released.  It was a great series of kits.  Good luck, man.

    Your build is looking great!
    That light ... I'm having a difficult time refraining from toilet humor on that one.

    Cool.  I like seeing these obscure kits being built!

    Two nights in a row!   I added a little wash to the nooks and crannies.  I think it looks a little better.  
    If I can only not booger up the dashboard ...

    Super, Duper, Teeny, Tiny small update!  I got a coat of paint on the interior.  It's looking more "rust" than "dark red"; but I think I'm going to run with it.  At least, I'll try a little wash and drybrushing and see where it ends up.  Worst case - purple pond.
