    Large Lot of Parts
    I acquired some kits in various stages of completion, some kitbashed. Also a large amount of misc. parts such as bumpers, hoods , seats. This is up for trade to anyone who may find some use from it. I would rather trade it as one lot but will part out to an extent. From what I can tell, there is an AMT Barris Raider Coach that appears started but complete except for wheels. Also an AMT Jaguar XJ220 that is unpainted and appears mostly complete. There is a Revell 70 GTX ,Revell 70 Mustang ,AMT challenger convertible & 3 other bodies & chassis that im not sure of the make/model of the vehicle which appear in various stages of started but mostly complete. A die-cast johnny lightning 70 Superbird that's missing its wheels & tires. Any specific questions about any of this stuff PM me and I will do my best to answer. Again I figured someone could use this stuff as I was close to throwing it all away since I have no use for it. Anything that's painted, the paint looks like it would come off with no problems in your favorite paint stripper. I can provide more pics if needed.
     
    In trade I would like to get at least two of the below kits or some parts or make an offer..... I don't expect them to be brand new, they can be started.
    Revell Ford Expedition
    Revell 2002 camaro
    AMT 56 ford crown Victoria hardtop
    AMT Chevy S10 pickup
    Revell Chevy Silverado
    Aftermarket items : P/E seatbelts, Wheels & tires , LS series motors, 6.1 Hemi Motors, 4-link suspensions, Modern superchargers, pro-touring style suspensions etc.

    I took one of the original rallye wheels and cut the lip off of it. Then placed the lip on top of another rallye wheel. Essentially it was a homemade wheel sleeve. Thanks

    Minus a few minor things, this one is done. Here are a couple shots of the final product.

    AAR Cuda Decals needed!
    Really Really need a set of the side stripes from one of the Revell AAR Cuda kits. I have everything done on the kit but no decals (see my WIP). Any help is appreciated and I have plenty of stuff to trade.

    Thanks gents.RR, I wouldn't dare put some wild wheels on a classic muscle car. Quick update: working on some wiring / plumbing that will mostly be hidden by the air cleaner anyway.

    This is cool, even more so the fact that it was made with all the custom stuff in the 1970's before all this aftermarket stuff we have available now was even around and the fact that you were 12!. I started building around that age in the 90's and my early builds were no where near as good lookin.

    This Kit started as the disaster of this thread- http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/108704-new-to-airbrushing-what-went-wrong/
     
    Stripped all the terrible paint and had the idea to give it a Star Wars theme.

    All of the paint is finished & has been polished out. Added the chrome trim and panel washes today. Still in need of some replacement AAR stripe decals.

    Got a few things taken care of. cut out the plastic that should have been a gap below the front bumper. Also will be using wide tires in the rear like the 1:1 so I made the wheels a bit deeper. Added plug wires to the motor and got rid of the one piece plastic pulley and fan belt. made a bracket for the alternator which I will be making a scratchbuilt belt for.

    AAR cuda B5 rebuild
    Originally built this kit some years back with some moderate experience. I decided it was time to strip it and start over instead of buying a new kit. First pic is the inspiration for the build, then the before pics, followed by where im at currently after I stripped the paint and re-painted. Still have a lot of things to do including polishing the body, applying decals & foil etc.

    Tamiya Acrylic not drying
    I need some advice on how to fix this. I airbrushed Tamiya white from a jar that I thinned with Tamiya acrylic thinner. I left it to dry for two days, and then used Tamiya and 3M tapes to mask it off. Ive never had a problem with Tamiya jar paints taking any longer than a few hours to dry. Well after taking the tape off, i noticed the tape either A) stripped the paint or B ) left tape residue behind. How can I correct this without having to respray?
