  1. Paint shaker

    To whomever it was that came up with the idea of using a jig saw with a squeeze type clamp to make a paint shaker, my hats off to you. It is one of the best & easiest accessories I have come across in the modelling world. The on/off switch on my saw is very stiff, so I can just slide it ahead enough to get the action going and shaking without flinging the paint out of the clamp. I used it on the weekend for bottles & cans and it performed excellent. MY right shoulder is not the best & this sure takes a lot of strain off from shaking by hand. Again, many thanks for the tip.
  2. Oil pans

    Going on a 440 six pack, red engine.
  3. Wondering what color you guys paint your oil pans. Engine color, black, aluminum, contrasting color to engine?
  4. 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.
  5. Which process, in your own opinions, works better for doing interiors,seats etc. Brush by hand? Airbrush?
  6. Looking for models of cars I have owned

    I've seen the 78 Z/28 on Ebay, but man, they want a lot of money for them.
  7. Looking for any or all of the following: 1978 Camaro Z/28, no T-top 1969 Volkswagon bug 2002-2005 Retro Thunderbird.
  8. Gluing parts

    Thanks
  9. 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.
  10. I purchased this from Amazon.com, works great. Tamiya 74041 Electric Handy Drill
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
