    I get my Scale Finishes shipped to a buddy in the states, he then sends it to me. Its expensive to ship because it has to go fedex hazardous, but if you have enough comming it evens out... same way I get my HOK from coastairbrush.

    In the background are 2 of my other 67 Impala projects, a Nassau blue 67 SS, and a weathered "barn find' patina'd sleeper with a 6" outlaw cowl, which will feature a twin turbo LSx from clearly scale.

    also her is my 1:1 SuperSport... which I guess is why I have an obsession with building scale models.

    67 Impala Non-SS barebones cruiser
    Been doing a bit of work on another project, 67 Impala with all SS trim shaved. I still need to add the lower belt chrome and vinyl top chrome. I wanted a more Yellow gold, like Granada gold.... however my airbrush compressor went out and I am wanting to wrap up the build by the end of the month ( club build off).... so I settled for a can of '67 SierraFawn gold that it had for a while..... its actually way off, lol. I also made a split bench.
    I also added the i6 from a trumpeter Nova kit ( while not totally correct, its convincing) Ive done a bit of weathering on the chassis and frame as well as the engine, I just want it to be a fairly stock looking , mabey lowered a bit on either cragars and thin whites, or stock hubcaps.
     


    the frame is open and hollow... so I filled it all in before painting and weathering

    split bench made using a stock rear seat, and some sheet styrene

     
    shaved lower trim, and fender badges. filled low spots/sink marks and shaved all mold lines.

     
    the car will have a black vinyl top. and black interior.

    if I was better at editing and creating my own files, I have looked into buying an ALPS, there are a few  good deals to be had on ebay right now.

    White decals/Alps printer options?
    Im looking to have a few custom decals printed.... that have some white writing in the center, Ive contacted Keith Marks 5 or 6 times over the past 2 months and have heard nothing back. Does anyone have an alternate source for decals that uses an ALPS printer?

  9. mademan added a post in a topic Scale Finishes   

    Im definatly not in any hurry to get my paint, but I paid on the 16th of August and the label was printed the next day, and I recieved an email from paypal noting that my parcel had shipped..... its now one month later and the tracking number is not valid and I have gotten no response. I know that I will get it, just communication from SF would have been nice.
  10. mademan added a post in a topic Chevy II Tailights   

    I am planning to make a mold of the 62-4 and 65 tail lights and cast them in clear red resin. 65s are different than 62-4
  11. mademan added a post in a topic Another ambiguous engine-Cadillac this time   

    Its supposed to represent the Cadillac 390/429...... but its poor lol im pretty sure it was used in the 63-70 kits.

    if they cannot help you out.... search out Bob Cline on facebook ( if you have it) he has a large inventory of Original Re-chromed and aftermarket resin bumpers. Ive dealt with him lots in the past.
  13. mademan added a post in a topic Source for Yellow "Mod Top" Decals   

    This is more what im going for. Already got the paint on its way from scale finishes.

  14. mademan added a post in a topic Source for Yellow "Mod Top" Decals   

    unfortunately thats more brown than I am wanting. I may try my hand at printing this onto a white decal sheet as a test.... as im sure ill wreck a few trying to get it on anyways.

    Source for Yellow "Mod Top" Decals
    Has anyone got an alternate source for Yellow Mod Top decals than ebay?  There is one seller that offers them at a cost of $9.00 US ($11.50 CDN) with $15.91 USD ($20.75 CDN) shipping...... which is a bit ridiculous since it should cost about a buck in stamps to send.
