    AMT "Too Much" twin mill dragster
    Hi all,,I know,,I know ,,there was a recent post of this awhile back,,of which it was a beautiful build{white color w/flames },,cant remember who posted it,,it is a great version though. At any rate,,this kit had to be modified as far as body panels so it could be displayed w/front section  on and off.  I also changed out the rear tires+rims .Added scratch built wheelie bar set at rear. And added some minor wiring,,linkage,plumbing. ,, a stripe down center of bodywork.,,different headers. Cool kit ,,but had to clean alot of flashing before assembly+paint.  All in all,,its a nice addition to the shelf,,thanks for looking.    S.S.

    I always have a DVD  or VHs or youtube movie of some type of Motorsports  while building,,seems to work for me.

    Why enamel paint turns to gel after a month or so?
    This may have been covered somewhere else,,couldnt find it. Anyways,,why does testors enamel bottle{small size}  turn to a gel-like glob after a couple of months?  I store them indoors,,away from direct sunlight,,so there not getting too hot,,and the weirdest thing is  not all colors do this!  Some I have  Ive had for  a year or so,,and there still fine{aside from having to add a bit of thinner to help flow better}  I dont get it.   Any ideas?
