    Looking for model kits for the following:
    1978 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 
    2005 (or similiar) Ford Thunderbird.
     
    These are models of cars I have had & have now.
    Any help in finding would be appreciated.

    Chrome removal
    I was working on drilling out the spark plug holes on the valve covers of my '71 Hemi Cuda and was scratching the chrome plating as I went. I checked online & most of the pictures I found showed the valve covers in flat black. I dug out the trusty Windex, recommended here buy a number of members & voila, no more chrome and now ready for paint. Next is the shifter which is also chromed and in need of a refinish.
    Many thanks to the members who donate to this forum, much appreciated & will be well used in the future.

    Thinning Testor bottle paint for airbrush.
    Wondering if there is a standard mixture ratio, or does everyone play it by ear?
    Thanks

    Glue removal
    While installing the mirrors on my 71 cuda, I have gotten glue on the doors below the mirrors. Any suggestions on removing the glue before I paint?
    Thanks

    It's not a lot, but on both sides of the car, Testor's model glue. This is the first model I have built in over 30 years, so the old hands aren't as steady as they used to be.

    I have a small metal model of the Old Navy Truck and I would like to strip it & used is as a test bed for the weathering process. Any ideas as to what I could use for the paint removal, it almost looks like a laquer based paint.

    Thanks

    I think I'll start with the 55 Nomad, I had a '09 Harley that color & that'll probably be the color I go with and then the Grand Cherokee is a snap kit that I may turn into a rusted beater.

    Back at it.
    Good morning, I will be 62 next month, and haven't built a model since I was around 28. I figured it was time to get back at it, so here is a picture of my work desk with the models I have accumulated over the last while. Hopefully I will have work in progress pictures to upload shortly. Wish me luck.

    Sorry, that is what I meant, not actual rust.

    Rusting on a diecast model
    Just a quick question, will the salt & water method work on a metal diecast. I have an Old Navy promotional die cast truck I would like to weather & put in a diorama. The model would be rusty, dented & left out behind an Old Navy store.
