  1. 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.
  2. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Thanks, now I know what to look for.
  3. 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.
  4. What would YOU like to see as a model

    1978 Z/28 Camaro, 2002-2005 Thunderbird. The Camaro I bought new in 1078 anf the Thunderbird (2005 Limited Edition) I have now.
  5. Anyone familiar with this model of air brush? Just ordered one from Amazon, wondering if they are ok or not. Gocheer High Precision Dual Action Gravity Feed Airbrush With 0.2 0.3 0.5mm Nozzles and 1/8" 5.9 ft Hose $39.99/CDN
  6. 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.
  7. Oil pans

    Going on a 440 six pack, red engine.
  8. Wondering what color you guys paint your oil pans. Engine color, black, aluminum, contrasting color to engine?
  9. 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.
  10. Which process, in your own opinions, works better for doing interiors,seats etc. Brush by hand? Airbrush?
  11. 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.
  12. Looking for any or all of the following: 1978 Camaro Z/28, no T-top 1969 Volkswagon bug 2002-2005 Retro Thunderbird.
  13. Gluing parts

  14. 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.
  15. I purchased this from Amazon.com, works great. Tamiya 74041 Electric Handy Drill
