    Get one of those battery operated mixers for stirring paint. They work wonders on new & old bottle paint.

    Nice! I don't recall any Hollywood celebs partial to Mopars but I can picture Frank or any of the Rat pack crusing the blvd
    with this. Nice touch and upgrade with the wheels and tires.
  5. 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 .

    I liked everyone but that gold Charger I'd throw some Big donk wheels on. Then it would look KOOL

    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.
