  1. Steven Zimmerman added a post in a topic What kind of job do you have?   

    65 , retired a few years ago. 31 years at Channellock, Inc, last 20 of those as a cutter grinder. Custom automotive paint  since I was 21, been an avid model builder since I was 9. Deeply involved in the automotive scene here since I learned how to drive, know my way around a car pretty well, and can rebuild the 'older stuff' from the ground up, if I have to.........Steven Zimmerman

    The AMT 57 Chevy  ' STREET MACHINE '  has a well detailed big block Chevy, and ( I think) a turbo 400 behind it ? I don't know if it's a 454, but then all Chevy big blocks are pretty much identical on the outside.

    One thing you don't see often in our hobby - ....Shiny tires !....Attend any car show or automotive event, and you will see an abundance of ARMOR ALL type products on tires, something pretty much ignored by our fellow builders. I use actual tire care products to achieve this.........'Z'

    the box contains 4 F60 - 15 and 4 L60 - 15, AMT 15" wheels fit these tires. I haven't found any AMT wheels in 15" that won't fit these tires, so far. Other wheels may have to be modified to fit. IMHO, one of the BEST products to hit the market in a long, long time........'Z'

  11. Steven Zimmerman added a post in a topic All dressed in black: tips for my first black paint job   

    Agreed. Black is my favorite color to shoot, either from an airbrush, or from a can. .A good paint job , no matter what color , depends 99 percent on preparation. You can have a perfectly prepared model, and screw up the paint job, but you CANNOT lay a perfect paint job on a poorly prepped surface, no matter what the color..............'Z'

    Look for scale siding, in plastruct or evergreen. Several different types / sizes are available.
  13. Steven Zimmerman added a post in a topic embossing-powder, replacing flocking?   

    Do you understand static electricity ? And I have had models sitting in the case for years after being completed, with no flocking residue on the inside of the windshield, and have it show up ( usually when cleaning for a contest)Your answer sounds easy, try it sometime.....
  14. Steven Zimmerman added a post in a topic embossing-powder, replacing flocking?   

    Embossing powder does not 'shed' later on, ever try to get flocking residue off the inside of your model's windshield  ?..... I could care less about how embossing powder 'feels', more interested in it's durability and ease of use. Just my opinion, but I no longer have flocking anywhere in my hobby room.
