  1. Hey everyone, I just cracked open an AMT '59 El Camino, and I found that when the chassis is slid into the body, the front frame rails (on the chassis pan) don't fit flush with the front fender liners that are molded to the body. This leaves quite a gap under the radiator area. Does the floor pan need to be "notched" slightly for the body to sit flush on the frame rails? To me it seems the front frame rails should mount snug up against the Inner fender liners. JMHO, so I thought I would ask before any modifications. Thanks!
  2. I sent in my order for the "Sale Box" and paid with PayPal on August 22, (2016). Received my order today, October 3 (2016). A bit of a wait, but I know he's very busy with work, and the move. I'm happy.
  3. Just a quick update. I received my paint from Jameston today, one month to the day from ordering. Not bad at all! He even threw in a bottle of primer for the long wait! I will definitely use again! Thanks!
  4. I'm rebooting as we speak! I'm nearly finished a '53 Chevy Bel Air, and I've made more mistakes on this kit than the first model I ever built! Smeared super glue on the paint, only sits on 3 tires, and many other problems. All the sub-assemblies were OK, but the final assembly has been a nightmare! I just started a "Model King" Lindberg '64 Plymouth Belvedere, going slow and hoping to put the gremlins behind. (Although the tail lights are missing, I hope it's not a sign of things to come!).
  5. Nope, I don't mind waiting, as long as there is some communication. This is my first transaction with Jameston, so I really had no idea on the wait time. I do agree though, it would be nice if he would put an estimated delivery date. Thanks for all the info!
  6. Does anyone know if Scale Finishes has closed the doors? Ordered November 4th, haven't received my order. No response from e-mails? Or am I expecting more than I should?
  7. Well, another kit I guess I won't buy. I thought it was a nice looking kit until all of it's problems were pointed out. But I don't want any kit that has so many issues. I guess I'll wait for the next new kit.
  8. Just wondering if anyone knows of any resin casters who make Volare parts? I'm looking for a (1977) Hood and Front Bumper/Grille. Thanks!
  9. Did this just once, trying to BMF a '57 Chrysler 300. At the time, I had little experience with BMF, and I now think I had an old sheet(that just wouldn't stick). Launched the body against the wall, stomped on it a few times for good measure, and into the trash it went. Felt so bad afterwards, I went out and bought 2 more of the same kit, but I haven't attempted to build one yet!
