  1. Revell '41 Willys Street Rod

    That's funny you mentioned that. I just bought paint from Bob's Paint. I'll see what he has but I think one of those formulas I linked above will work.

    Thanks for looking for me. These combos are odd but do make sense. The only problem is I order from Coast Airbrush since they sell small sizes, 1, 2, & 4 ounce and they don't have the UK-19 Scarlet and UK-Persimmon. However I was looking on House Of Kolors website and did a sort of their brown formulas. These look pretty close to what I need and are easy to make. http://www.houseofkolor.com/kolors/detail/index.html?id=HOK000823-01&ref=kolors http://www.houseofkolor.com/kolors/detail/index.html?id=HOK000321-01&ref=kolors http://www.houseofkolor.com/kolors/detail/index.html?id=HOK000325-01&ref=kolors http://www.houseofkolor.com/kolors/detail/index.html?id=HOK000324-01&ref=kolors http://www.houseofkolor.com/kolors/detail/index.html?id=HOK000805-01&ref=kolors

    I did mix HOK Apple Red Kandy and Root Beer in various mixes. I applied them over Gamma Gold and Orion Silver. The Apple Red and Root Beer become very dark when mixed. I'm using the Kandy Base coats that have a slight pearl mixed in. Maybe HOK Tangerine mixed with Apple Red might work. I'd appreciate it if you can look at your HOK color chart for me.

    I've been working on the body color using the House Of Kolor KBC07 Root Beer and KBC11 Apple Red Kandy Base Coat. It's not working out as well as I hoped. The Root Beer and Apple Red mixed together makes a very dark color. The color only really shows in either direct sunlight or under a light. If anyone has any ideas of a color or colors I can mix to make the reddish-brown color please join in. I'm looking for a metallic/candy/pearl. Any of these.

    Thanks Steve!
  7. Does anyone have a set of rear (chrome)wheels from the Revell 40 Ford Coupe Street Rod?
  8. Revell '41 Willys Street Rod

    No I wish I could. I do have something else in mind for this one. This isn't going to be a replica, I was inspired by the 1:1 pictures.

    Thanks Ron and Jim!
  10. Has anyone used Dupli-Color Paint Shop Primer? It comes in a quart for around $20(US). It doesn't say high build or filler so I'm wondering if it's a thin primer?

    Beautiful job on this! The paint looks real nice and I like the wheels.

    Awesome job Jeff! The stance looks great.

    Thanks Geoff! Thanks Jeff for the pictures. It looks like you angled the front of the frame up a bit to lower the front suspension. I actually like how yours looks more then what I did. I'm just going to leave mine since it's all in primer now. All your Willys' are beautiful! I hope mine looks half as nice when it's done. A small update - I started mixing the House Of Kolors paints today. The red-brown isn't an easy color to make but I'm in the ball park. Mike.

    Thanks for the nice words! Jeff - Do you have a picture of the frame you cut to lower your Willys? I'm curious what approach you took. Mike.
