    Thanks for your input Bill. I also am a big fan of duplicolor as well, so I will give it a try and who knows I may even post results!

    1/16 scale paint question
    I have a goal of doing one of those miles deep black paint jobs on a 1/16 scale kit and was wondering about opinions on whether to use airbrush or spray can. My thinking is with the spray can the coverage would be more consistent on this scale. Would love to know opinions.

    Building advice for 40 Ford coupe
    Hey Fellow Modelers,
    First time building this kit and was wondering if I can glue inner fenders and firewall in place before painting. I'm keeping kit flathead if that helps. Looks like it should be fine but was wondering how it works best.

    Thanks for the tip/idea Gabriel. I was contemplating that but couldn't figure out how to calculate how many fins.

    34 Ford custom pickup
    My first real attempt at a custom where slicing and dicing is concerned. It is for our local show next week for the "Orange" theme.
    chopped and channelled over the Phantom Vickie chassis. Paint is Tamiya brilliant Orange with gold pearl mixed in the clear. Only thing I'm disappointed in is with all the trial fitting I had the hood fitting but in final assembly the cab to radiator distance changed and now the hoods too short!
    Oh well,comments and critiques welcomed

  14. m3fan added a post in a topic Big Bad Benz...finally finished!   

    Hi Harry,
    Found this build thread and have to say as much frustration that it caused you it looks great!
    Our local club was given this same car to be done as a group build and auctioned off for charity. my job are the wheels. I have a question for you though. Did you polish the metal parts with anything and if so what did you use? The spokes on the kit we have are very dull and some of the other metal parts look dull as well.
    Any help you can shed would be appreciated.
