    Maybe not:
     
    I have a set of Modelhaus replacement seats that exactly match the ones inside the green car above. They're in the familiar tan resin.
     
    I have a set of Hart's Parts replacement seats that match the black seat in the second pic above. They're in white resin.
     
    I hope this helps!

    Hmmm...I waited over two years for one of his '73 Dodge Charger SE kits. I eventually did receive the Charger. However, no communication in the interim. No "sorry for..." note. No "thank you for..." note. No "it's been shipped..." note.
    Just because you can mix up a cup of resin doesn't make you a successful businessman.
    Mikemodeler, ask this same question over on the Spotlight Board and you'll get the full low-down.

    THIS is correct! BRUSH on the ELO and wait for about one hour or so. Your old paint should have started to lift by then. Soaking is a waste of both product and money. OK to use the same brush (an inexpensive acid brush is fine to use - throw it away when finished) to remove the lifted paint. I also use an old baking pan. The metal pan collects the ELO that drips. 
     
    I have used ELO only on resin. There are less potentialy dangerous methods for styrene (such as Easy-Off Oven Cleaner).
     
    Good luck!

    Top Tip:


    If you place an order through the DM Modelworks website and use a Post Office Box (and it's your confirmed PayPal address) do not check the "Use PO Box" checkbox. You'll receive a an error page originating from santu.com

    I took a quick look at the Santu website as I had not heard of this service. Nice website. However the copyright date shows "2012"

    Andy Martin at Aardvark has resin cast the Mudd Coupe. He was selling them on eBay (I purchased one). It needs a Monogram Duesenberg as a donor kit (needs to be modified). The price is/was on par with other high quality resins.

    If you haven't already, e-mail Tapani Rauramo at:

    Yes, the AirTrax kits are expensive. No, these kits will not "fall together". A fair amount of out-of-the-box thinking will be needed.

    The SEL Ltd. ones are quite nice. Very smooth white resin. I have several.

  15. john sharisky added a post in a topic Danbury Mint?   

    On eBay last night I picked up a mint-in-box, out of production DM '57 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertible. I was the only bidder at $199.99. I thought it was a fair price. Not too much above original issue price. I had one earlier but sold it in a weak moment. I think that I was the only bidder because the seller never once used the word "Eldorado" in the already verbose description. Over & over he kept calling it by the Biarritz name. All in the game I guess.
