       The maintenance went very smoothly. With the recent database problems, a table got very very big, and needed some surgery. You should experience any changes.

  1. I know a lot of model builders warm their rattle cans before spraying their cars. Does anyone warm their airbrush paint (Createx etc.) before painting.
  2. A little over priced

    What do you think of this deal on Amazon.ca????? Revell 1:12 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 Plastic Model Kit CDN$ 9,000.00(1 new offer)
  3. May be a little off topic, but does anyone know where I could get a 1/24-1/25 figure of Steve McQueen as Bullitt. I am about to start the Bullitt Mustang & would like the figure to go along with it. I have seen lots of 1/18 scale but nothing close to the car scale.
  4. The local Michael's has a Badger compressor, Model AS180-12 on clearance, from $454.00/CDN to $129.00/CDN. I am assuming it is old stock and they are trying to get rid of it. Wondering if anyone has one & what they think of it.
  5. Missing windshield

    Thanks guys.
  6. I bought a model kit of a 1966 Thunderbird from a hobby shop out of town before Christmas, all parts were in the box I was told. Upon opening the box a week or so ago, I found the clear tree including the headlights and front windshield, side and rear windows were missing. The rear is no problem as I am going to build it as a convertible, but the missing windshield does present a problem. Any one have any ideas on how to fabricate one from common household items etc.?
  7. Maybe not so much signs, more like garage names on trucks etc.
  8. Surprise this morning

    Shop service truck, nice paint, new motor and interior.
  9. I would like to begin lettering my cars. I used to do toll painting, using transfer paper & designs from magazines. The design would be transferred to the wood & then painted. I would like a program to design lettering that will let me shape the letters into curves, etc. I would then transfer them to the vehicle & use paint & brush to create the signs. Any ideas would be a great help.
  10. Surprise this morning

    He likes to buy, says this is the right one, then before you know it, car is gone & he's on to another one.
  11. Surprise this morning

    Her husband is a car guy, lately he's had a '68 mustang fastback, factory 5 cobra, challenger t/a and now a 2012 Mustang Shelby.
  12. Surprise this morning

    Came back to work after 2 weeks vacation & found this on my desk. One of the ladies here was cleaning out her cottage and found it Everything in the box except the paint & brush.. Looking forward to getting started on it.
  13. Time to build

    I'm thinking stock. When I buy these sort of drag cars, it is usually to do the stock version, as they can be hard to find. I'm thinking black with red interior. I tend to check the internet for original colors & combos before deciding on the paint scheme. My problem is finding the time to build. I have a dedicated work bench, paint booth etc. , but as most of you probably know, free weekend time is usually taken up with the wife's ideas of fun.
  14. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Thanks, now I know what to look for.
  15. Time to build

    I picked up this 1964 Thunderbolt on Saturday from Hobby Lobby. Read the box after I got home, skill level 5, should be ok. Next it said build time 7 hours, pretty near split my pants laughing at the 7 hours. I must assume they assembled the model without painting or any detailing. Takes me that long to go over the instructions & get things ready to start.
