  1. Latest project

    Started yesterday priming with white. Finish will be Nocturne blue, original 78 colour.
  2. I was given a Maisto Ford KA kit from a guy at work to build. I am retiring next month & would like to build it & give it back to him before I leave. It is one of their metal body kits that I believe mostly snap together. The body is dark green metallic & I would like to repaint it with Testors color shift green/copper. I would like to use the dark green as a base, and am wondering how to prepare the body for new paint. Should I give it a light sanding with a mild sandpaper, or completely prime with a dark primer. Thanks for the advice.
  3. I bought these from Amazon after using the headband type of magnifier. I found the headband uncomfortable. These wear like regular glasses and work great. https://www.amazon.ca/Beauty7-Professional-Interchangeable-Illuminated-Magnifying/dp/B077X5LR6L/ref=sr_1_9?crid=3KUQFCE9Z42HA&keywords=magnifying+glasses&qid=1551359801&s=gateway&sprefix=magnifying+glasses%2Caps%2C162&sr=8-9 $19.99/CDN

  5. Anyone know where I could pick up a set of 1/16 wheels and tires. I have the 1/16 Minicraft '31 Ford & would like to update the tired & wheels. Thanks
  6. large scale tires

    They look pretty much like the stock ones in the kit. I'm kinda looking for old school Cragar, Keystone wheels with street tires. Thanks
  7. Anyone know where to buy 1/16 scale street tires. I have the Minicraft 31 Ford High boy & would like to spruce up the wheels & tires.
  8. 3D printing

    Thanks guys for the input. Looks like it may be more fruitful to put my pension money to better use.
  9. 3D printing

    I have a general question concerning 3D printing of parts etc. I am 66 yrs old & am retiring in April. I have approx 45-50 kits waiting to be assembled, and, hopefully my wife will be understanding. I am very interested in 3D printing and am wondering if it would be worthwhile to purchase a small one for the models I will be building. I have no idea if I would need a scanner for the parts or if there are programs out there that would be available at low or no cost. I would be greatly appreciative for any info or input that any members can supply.

    Quick question, what do you thin your nail polish with, and the ratio if possible. Thanks

    Thanks, much appreciated
  13. Wood for buildings

    Just wondering what wood, (balsa?), is used for building construction for dioramas. Do you buy sheets & cut to size,to make 2" x 4" etc., or buy pre-cut boards and such.
