    I stopped by my local Michael's yesterday.  They had a handful of kits that were on clearance, but the clearance price was $11.99-12.99, so I passed.

    The KMET and KLOS decals on the rear just seal the deal for me...that's gorgeous!

    I just picked this kit up at Hobby Lobby, and the box reads 1/24 scale.

    I will definitely give that a shot when I get home...thanks much!

    That looks GREAT! I love the color and wire wheels!

    This is mine, using wheels and tires from Revell's '79 Z-28 and Testors Root Beer lacquer...

    Perhaps Tamiya TS-30 Silver Leaf with a clearcoat?
  7. Captain Obvious added a post in a topic Paint Strippers - What to Use?   

    Does anyone know what type of paint the ColorPlace spray paint from Walmart is? I use it frequently for smaller parts, but recently used it on a body, with unfavorable results. It didn't seem like the 91% alcohol I usually use did much good on it...any suggestions?

    Looks great!

    I agree about the lowering, this is mine...don't remember what I did to drop it though lol

    Welcome back!

    What color are you planning for paint?

    I need to get one of those silver Sharpies...

    The rear tires are actually included in the kit...it's a 2-in-1 kit that includes stock and drag bits.

    Thanks for the compliments everyone!

    That is GORGEOUS. Do you have a link or contact info for the source of those wheels?
