  1. Revell 2019

    So glad to hear about Ed Sexton. I built a 1/24 Monogram Chevy stepside up from some parts kits, I wonder if this is the same kit? Either way I'll be getting at least one more. The Baja Bandito is going to follow me home too!
  2. Porsche 356 Speedster - CalClub Style

    Good work as usual! I have this kit painted in the same color waiting for a final burst of inspiration.
  3. Magnus Walker 277 Question

    I just looked it up and they were indeed UCSP. They are excellent quality. Shipping took about 3 weeks and they were packed in a nice presentation box.
  4. Anybody else also a fan of Juha Airio?

    The man is an artist, I am a dabbler. Amazing!
  5. Krylon paint trick, is it for real??

    I've put Krylon out in direct sun when the temperature was over 100 and it turned out really good, so I can see how it would work with a hair dryer. I do wonder if this trick might dry Rustoleum quicker as it seems to take forever to dry?
  6. Hobby Lobby

    It came in this week at the Austin area Hobby Lobby's.
  7. Magnus Walker 277 Question

    Thanks for the replies, I'll start looking for the Fujimi kit. I just remembered I've got a set of the 1552 Outlaws that I bought last year on eBay for a good price. Can't remember who makes them but they came from the Ukraine.
  8. HeritageCon 13 Haul

    Looks like you got some good stuff!
  9. Body putty

    Silly question I suppose, but does anyone make an equivalent to the two-part Bondo in smaller hobby sized quantities?
  10. So yesterday I fell to temptation and ordered a set of Magnus Walker 277 decals from China. Now the question; which Porsche 911 kit comes closest to matching his car? I'm guessing it's going to be a Fujimi, but any guidance to which in particular and preferably is there another manufacturer that has one? Has anyone attempted this build?
  11. 2019 CBR - the Vannonball Run!

    I finally got time to do a little on my Cannonball entry. The decalling made me not want to touch it for a while, but I got that done. I've been working 60 hour weeks for the last few months plus an hour commute each way so I've been mostly laying around on the weekends. However, I have done a little more and I've worked a few hours on other projects. Then last week we went on vacation and did a Mini-Cannonball, 3890 miles in 7 1/2 days. We went from Austin to San Francisco and back with stops in Reno, Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and Roswell. At least I brought the appropriate reading material!
  12. 2019 CBR - the Vannonball Run!

    Do you have a build thread on this one?
  13. Looks great! Are you going to sell copies of those wheels? LOL
  14. I envy your skills, it looks great!
