    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.

    Removing glue
    I am working on a '71 Hemi Cuda and when glueing the rear view mirrors to the doors, I got glue on the door. Any suggestions on what to use to remove the excess glus?

    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.
    Thanks

    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.

    As they say Stupid is as stupid does, and I am in this case. Would someone explain decanting paint.
    Much appreciated.

    New car kits
    Good morning, my first post, hope it helps. If any of you have a Marden's near you, you are in luck. They are a New England, mostly Maine, chain that sells bankruptcy, fire damaged etc. goods. Lately they have had a run of model car kits for sale, Revell, Lindbergh etc. I picked up 2 on Saturday, Roger Lindamoods Color Me Gone funny car and a 1953 Ford Indy 500 pace car. Now the good news, they are $5.49/each. Selection isn't bad, depends on which store you hit, but hey, can't beat the price. Home here in New Brunswick, the same models are selling at Micheal's in the $25.00-$35.00 range.
    Happy hunting.

    Paint hardware
    I see in a number of photos a paint stand that looks like an old disc brake. The stand usually has holders that look lie paper clips for holding parts for painting. Is this something that can be ourchased or are they home made?
