    I like the engine stand, paint job looks good too.

    I did the Hemi Cuda this year, took me since January. Don't get much time to work on them, only when the missus is working.

    My stash of kits for 2016, the 'Cuda and the trailer are done, the rest are raring to go. Currently I am working on the Color Me Gone 64 Dodge as a street car so it is not in the photos.

    Delta Ceramacoat paints
    I bought a bottle of Delta ceramacoat acrylic "Denim" to do the interior of the car I am currently working on. I can't seem to get the mixture correct for my airbrush, it's either too thin and runs off, or is too thick & just loads up on the seats. I am wondering if there is a standard mix ratio of paint to water, or is it still try till you get it right?

    Thickness of model bodies
     I am thinking on ordering some styrene sheets & rods for kit bashing & general repairs to my models. I brought the body of my '64 Dodge A330 to work & one of the guys measured the thickness on the micrometers as .125". I'm just wondering if this sounds correct for general use and perhaps what diameter rods would be a good start to get.
    Thanks

    Much appreciated.

    I purchased a food dehydrater on Friday, has to go back. It has about 7 racks but none high enough to hold a body let alone parts. Looks like it was just meant to hold strips of food. Back on the hunt for a different one.

    Light bulb for paint drying?
    I do my modeling in the basement, & find that the paint takes a long time to dry. I have an electric heater in my room along with a dehumidifier, the room is approx 12' x 30', with the assorted basement junk & clutter along with my modeling desk. I have built a paint booth from 3/8" plywood, 18" high x 24" deep, with only the front open, 2 led lights in it & a fan at the back for exhaust. I am thinking of putting a light fixture in the ceiling of the paint booth, with maybe a 40 or 60 watt light bulb. After painting I would turn the light on to help dry the paint. Any ideas or suggestions on this idea?

    It seemed weird in the instructions to use gloss black, but I went ahead anyway.

    Painting before assembling
    When painting the frame, undercarriage, engine, etc., do you use a brush, airbrush, rattle can? Also, do you paint on the tree, or assemble as much as possible, then paint.
    I am currently building the Lindberg, Color Me Gone,'63 A330 Dodge as a street machine (muscle car). I painted the frame and under carriage last night with gloss black as per the instructions (by brush), but man, it seems way too glossy. Would a matte clear work to dull it a bit, or should I leave as is.
    Thanks
