    1970 Road Runner
    This is my next project, starting on the weekend, hoping it goes smoothly. I have 4 other cars unfinished in boxes. They all have reached the point where I was ready to pitch them against the wall, or put back in the box. Just small things that I can't get right that are very frustrating. Sooner or later, they will get done.

    I've seen the 78 Z/28 on Ebay, but man, they want a lot of money for them.

    Gluing parts
    At my age, 65, my hands are not quite as steady as they once were. I am currently working on a '58 vette, and the front bumpers are quite smudged with glue.  Does anyone have a solution for gluing small parts together so as not to get globs of glue on everything? I have tried toothpicks, small paint brushes, etc, but none of these seem to do the trick.

    58 Corvette, masking for paint
    As you can see, I messed up when paining the coves. I thought they were complete until I installed them & saw that I now have to finish the white on the fender. This will entail taping & masking and I am wondering, what is the favourite material used to mask the car while painting.

    Wicked airbrush paints
    I have a nice Wicked Red airbrush paint I would like to put on a '58 vette I am building. 
    Question is, does this paint need to be thinned before use, and if so, with what. Wicked says to use Wicked thinner, but I am no where near anybody that sells it.
     
    Thanks

    1978 Z/28
    I bought the twin to this car new in 1978, and am looking for a model of it to build. It is a 1978 Z/28, no T-Roof.
    The 1977 and earlier, and 1979 up, are both different cars from the 1978, it had many body features unique to that year.
    If anyone knows where I could trade for one or buy one, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Would love to have a kit of this, any idea where to find one. I had a 1:1 of this, bought new in 1978, chocolate brown, and would like to do a model of it.

    Painting small parts, brush or spray?
    Questions:
    1) Do most paint small parts on the tree, then assemble, or assemble & then paint.
    2) Do most spray paint  motors and parts, as well as interiors and seats, or do you use brushes.
    Looking at some finished jobs on here (WOW), wondering how the painting gets done so well.
    Thanks

    I have a couple of nail brush colors I've been waiting to try. One is a deep red & the other a bright yellow. Either will have a tan leather interior.
