MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. Tamiya tape is great, I’ve only had one failure with it. I sprayed duplicolor 1k clear over testors one coat metallic. After it dried for a few days I put the tamiya tape over it to mask a line I wanted to paint. I left the tamiya tape on too long I assume and it ripped the duplicicolor 1k right off. Luckily it was an easy fix by brushing some future over the area where the clear was stripped off. I also had a failure with blue painters tape over the same brand clear coat.
  2. I also love restoring glue bombs. The motor looks amazing and I 2nd the idea that you could have left the valve covers off and displayed it alone! I’m for sure going to try that on a build .thanks for sharing the tip with the sewing buttons with us.
  3. This is some amazing work sir. Ive never dealt with 3D printing but its amazing to see so many things that can be done with it.
  4. Great detailing on this one. This is the first of the CHP Ram I’ve seen in scale. I had a plan to make one a while back , would not have ended up this good!
  5. Bringing this old thread back. Is there ANYWHERE online that still Sells rattle can testors or Model Master lacquers? If not, is there a company (besides Tamiya) that offers similar metallics at similar prices that testors and MM used to sell in rattle cans? The only thing hobby lobby still Carry’s are the Testors “one coat” and enamels. I don’t airbrush so all of my bodies are painted from rattle cans. I have good luck with rustoleum $ krylon but they only sell solid colors, not many options for metallic paints.
  6. Inherited the kit as a very poorly hand painted glue bomb. Stripped everything down to scratch, found some reference pics and this is the final result.
  7. this is awesome! I need to get one of these kits now.
  8. Pls delete
  9. Love the color, what brand/code is it?
  10. Nice build. I’m curious what are the steps for laser printing at fedex? Do you put your design on a usb drive and supply your own decal paper to fedex?
  11. Beautiful build, super clean !
  12. Thank you all for the replies, especially @oldcarfan27 for the detailed list.
  13. Anyone know of where to find plastic, resin or 3D printed toppers for pick up truck beds? Not tonneau covers.
