    Still looks fine on mine, with quite a bit of room to spare horizontally.

    Beautiful work, as usual! The whitewalls & gold side trim inserts are outstanding!

    I'll chime in, too, gorgeous & no photo squishing on my end! I also agree about the the flake in the paint being so perfect for the scale. Very nice!

    Nice work! What is the source of the small screw heads on the engine?

    I have used Chrome Tech, LMK, & Bob's Paint "Kustom Khrome". I've had beautiful results from LMK, other times, specks under the chrome plating. Same thing with Chrome Tech USA, some parts outstanding, others with runs or specks. Didn't care for Kustom Khrome, all of the hubcaps that I sent had tiny pieces of lint or something under the chrome. Plus, no plating where it was attached to the rack with "special tape" My modified bumper came back cracked where it was pushed down on that "special tape." Never again.
    Whenever possible, I send multiples of a part placed on different parts of the rack to hopefully insure getting one very nice piece.
    Bumpers & grille on this one plated by Chrome Tech. The hubcaps were plated by LMK.


    Chrome Tech again for the bumpers & grille on this one.

    Peter, One of my friends that lives in the Netherlands sends his parts to this place. I've seen photos of the parts & they look very nice. VPF FlöhaHeinrich-Heine-Str. 509557 FlöhaDeutschlandemail : info@vpfgbr.de www.vpfgbr.de

    26 or 28 ga. bead wire works for me. I bought a spool @ Hobby Lobby many years ago & still have quite a bit.
    I'm not a fan of diodes or resistors for fuel filters, mainly because they look like diodes & resistors to me.

    Looking very nice!
    Is BIN thin enough to spray right out of the can?
    Thanks,
    Steve

    I've seen Greg Stegall post photos on the ACME FB page. I'm not sure how he does it other than calling it "hydro dipping"
    Greg's work & photos, not mine.

    Bill, Juha wrote a 2 part article in the other magazine that showed what I'm talking about, maybe in 2000 or 2001? He uses Humbrol green & blue metallic enamel, but only uses the clear top portion, none of the metallic particles. Then, he mixes parts of those in with clear & thinner, & brushes it on clear sheet.

    Very, very nice!
    I've airbrushed Juha's Hubrol window tint formula with good results, just in case the Future/food coloring route doesn't work.
