  1. '53 Ford Ranch Wagon - Kit Ever Made?

    Jimmy Flinstone does a very nice copy of a "53 Ranch Wagon, Nice thin casting, Find it on ebay or direct from his website.
  2. I'' ve mentioned it before use 30 minute epoxy mixed with micro balloons.
  3. Body Fillers - what do you use?

    I use 2-part putties and also 30 minute epoxy mixed with micro balloons. I can't say enough about this filler. No problems with shrinkage,ghosting or any ills. The micro balloons makes the mix easy to sand.
  4. Alclad at high psi?

    Have you considered Testors Brass metallizer? aerosol or bottle.
  5. I have two buckets of the type used for swimming pool clorine. A 5 gal. and 2.5 gallon. They have very safe and tight locking lids. The I'd be wary of some plastic containers as some are meant to decompose. The one shown with the locking flaps are great.

    Russ, The smaller part where the tip goes in. Look closely and you'll see where the valve is pressed into the can. Mike
  7. Inside of a Tamiya rattle can(photo)

    I use one of those ratcheting clamps. Holding the can UPSIDE DOWN I clamp on the tip and it starts to spew propellant. I hang this in a convenient place(my carport) and let it gas out. When it is completely done I remove the clamp and shake the can. Laying a rag over the top I rip the top off with a good pair of sidecutters. I can then add a little thinner and swirl the can around and dump the paint into a jar. I worked at an aerosol valve manufacturer and this task I 've done 100's of time. Your results may be different.
  8. Chevoom 1:25 Scale Resin/Styrene

    This is very nice! I would not have thought about looking for a resin sedan to do this. I have to look a little closer at what MCW has in resin. Cool Build, Was just going thru/sorting old car mags and ran across an article on this racer.
  9. 1965 Sox & Martin Altered Hardtop

    Not worth the trouble!
  10. 1965 Sox & Martin Altered Hardtop

    You're right too! Branster owned Amblewagon.
  11. 1965 Sox & Martin Altered Hardtop

    Your right ! I have a 4 page article on these cars. I posted pics here a long time ago about just how very incomplete the bare shells were that were sent to that shop. No rear quarter panels and not even a roof panel ! Mr. Norms first AWB was a sedan that only had the rear wheels moved forward.

    Hopefully this works, http://www.moparmax.com/columns/magnante/vii_4-2.html
  13. cv boots?

    If your talking about those rubber boots, you can make them by using common hole punches of different diameters and punch some discs from sheet plastic. Stack them up and glue them together.
  14. Satin Slipper

    Always nice to see your work Peter. I like most everything about it,but the headlites seem to be too big in my eyes.
  15. A few(very few,phone battery puked) shots from IPMS Nats

    Agreed! Been to 3 NATS and loved it. The sheer scope of what is there blows me away everytime.
