  1. Mike Kucaba added a post in a topic Even ''Predicta''kit has accuracy issues   

    In discussing this car with Mr. Predicta AKA Mark Gustavson. It was concluded that to build an accurate 1/24 model the kit should only be used as a reference and start with a Monogram '56 t-bird and a '59 Buick. 
    I did try using the kit and wanted to backdate it but what a waste.
    I'll see about posting a link to my PB, both the 1/24th project is there along with start of a 1/16th predicta.
    The frustrating thing is that Monogram bought the Predicta from Starbird. He made modifications to it for Monogram and they still fudged the model.

    Nice work so far. In the clean up on mine I checked and cut that cowl/ Firewall out and will eventually mate it up to the interior floor. I'll be watching how the Porsche dash goes .

    Why would shipping take that long? If you pay with a CC I've had kits in a matter of days.

    Nice! I have this in the stash and did some clean-up a few months back. Like the idea of the XR-6 chassis. may borrow that idea.

    How about why go thru all this trouble to post this, then find fault with it.?

    Why not just modify the Franklin Mint '53 to as close as possible.
  14. Mike Kucaba added a post in a topic identifying the problem / paint question   

    "And I know for a fact that some paints (particularly automotive paints) were not made to be heat-dried"
    This is news to me. Can you give a source for this? Body shop suppliers sell and promote many kinds of driers( Heat lamps etc) for speeding the curing of paint work. Time is money in body shops, Anyone here work in body repair daily have any comments on this? 
    Thanks
