    Just received my Revell Anglia Street Rod bought off e-bay for $5 + $10 shipping ($15 total). Chrome was slightly faded but seller added a new set of wheels to the package. Nice!

    What I do/would do is google for pictures of the subject I am/was working on. When I was your age, I didn't have internet access to look for information. Here's an example; www.camaro-untoldsecrets.com/articles/crossram.htm

    I hope this helps.

    No further progress today.Sprayed the suspension pieces gloss black a couple of weeks ago. For some reason, the paint bubbled. I wet sanded them smooth and airbrushed them today. No luck, the paint bubbled again. it was as if there are tiny bubbles in the paint. (i let the paint "gas"out for a good week before I airbrushed the suspension. I broke out my trusty can of Easy Off. Will try again.I need a good base coat of gloss black for my Alclad chrome.

    I've seen models posted and I've been to shows where somebody that I DON'T know wants to show me his poorly done models (that he thinks are great) and I've been tempted to tell the truth but have bitten my tongue and not say anything at all, so I don't hurt the builders feelings. I think we need to build first and critique our own builds because it's easier to see somebody elses (building) faults but not realize that we have our own weak points whether it be painting, detailing in scale, or just a clean build. I've got over a dozen started projects that are stalled at the moment because I am not satisfied with my own building skills. I know I would be ashamed to post pictures of something that I wasn't especially proud of, but that's me, however if I did, I should expect some (constructive) criticism.

    Thanks for the pics. Question: which kit has the straight axle??

    I thought this was from the movie, Food of the Gods.

    I've really enjoyed the in-progress pic's following this build. It takes this kind of imagination to light a fire under some of us builders. I've been wanting to do a dragster or an altered similar to this. Thanks for the ideas!

    Thanks for the info. I'll send some in-progress pic's of mine if I can get my camera to work.

    Great Build! Question; where did you get the wheels and tires for the 1/25 Deora?
  13. buskid added a post in a topic How many models did you buy this year (type) as opposed to how many you built?   

    Yeah, but it sure is fun though isn't it? I think browsing Ebay and collecting kits and supplies is a hobby in itself.

    I was in a Michael's a while back and saw some of those Camaro's in a mark-down bin for $5.00 each. I wondered where those kits came from since I never saw that many Camaros on the shelf. I didn't buy any but I sure wish I had. Thanks for the info.

    I will throw most if it away but keep the longer straight pieces for emergency situations. I will sometimes clip a piece that resembles an "L" shape for stirring paint that has settled over time. I just twist it back and forth with my fingers for controlled mixing.
