  1. Any Florida Model Car Clubs?

    It was nice meeting you guys at the Mopar Challenge which was held at Rob Lambin's University Dodge. This was the thread I was referring to.
  2. 1st Modelers BBQ at Ismael's

    Carne al pincho, models, sunny days, great friends... What a great way to spend a weekend! Next time I come down to la Isla, we must get together. I am dying to visit the hobby shop in Caguas you guys are always talking about.
  3. Need Info Source

    Hi, I have been reading a lot of articles lately, and some make references to photo etched parts, flocking, and foiling. I want to find out more about these detailing options and how they are done. I don't even know where to begin, because quite frankly I have no idea what they are talking about.
  4. What's a good place online to get hobby supplies?

    I like Model Round Up, Tower Hobbies, and Fred's Resin Workshop. www.modelroundup.com www.towerhobbies.com www.fredsresinworkshop.com
  5. buffing finished cars

    Man I love the shine on that bad boy. I use Tamiya Spray laquers exclusively. What clear do you guys suggest using?
  6. Anyone remember?

    Have any of you guys seen or may perhaps remember, a chevy panel station wagon with side pipes? This was a Monogram model and it came molded in orange. It had some Doug's Headers decals in white to complement the orange. I have seen a lot of older vintage kits such as the Garbage Truck, Scool Bus, etc. I have not seen the one I described above. Quite frankly I can't even remember what the name of that particular kit was.
  7. Decal Advice

    Steve, The middle one seems to be the ideal one. These need to be small, I am placing them in front of the doors. I have another one coming up. The second one is going to be either yellow, or my metallic blue/teal combination. The decal colors will go fine with both. What is thou looking for as far as trade goes? I have some stuff here, but it's not the mother lode, I just got back into the hobby about 6 months ago, but I must say I do have some interesting tires, wheels, distributors, netting, grilling material, etc. Shoot me an IM>
  8. Monte Carlo Super Stocker

    I just put together this great model. The chassis and suspension on this bad boy is very versatile.
  9. Decal Advice

    Mike, What does LHS stand for?
  10. Decal Advice

    Hey guys. I need to get a set of flame decals for this version of the Lil Coffin. Where I am getting confused is on the size. I don't want to get something that is too big. Any suggestions?
  11. Does ANYBODY have a legible copy

    I just opened a factory sealed Lil Coffin. I was amazed at the instruction booklet, it is a copy and an extremely poor one at that. Even with my power vision scope and a surgeon's light, I can't see the diagrams. I went to www.revell.com, and the website is as useless as the instructions I got. They ask for the model number, but due to the kit's age, they don't have them. I build this kit a while back (1969), but I can't remember any of the details. I would really be impressed with myself if I did remember, but I don't!!! Any ideas? Suggestions?
  12. Lost metal axle AMT

    AMT Kit is a Super Stocker Impala.
  13. Lost metal axle AMT

    Hey guys. I lost one of the metal axles from an AMT kit. Does anyone have an idea where I can purchase these on-line? We don't have any real hobby shops within 30 miles of where I live, so an on-line store is my only avenue. I have to assume that I am not the first one to loose one of these! All suggestions appreciated.
  14. Aluminum Parts

    Where can I get the aluminum parts everyone is using? I need 1/24 and 1/24 scale.
  15. White on White

    As always great information. Thanks for the feedback. I have used the Tamiya laquer on bare plastic, no problems, however all of the cars have been in colors other than white. As suggested, I will start using the primer immediately. I just ordered some masking materials, so thanks for the heads up on the need for primer on those occassions where masking is going to be utilized.
