  1. Fantastic build! Definitely following this one with interest!
  2. Iceman Collections on ebay has 1981-1982, 1983-1984, and 1985-1988 Chevy grills for the Deserter Kit: https://www.ebay.com/str/icemancollections His store is closed for the holidays so you're going to have to wait until next week.
  3. I'm looking to get rid of the following 3 airbrush systems. My father bought them all new and only used each once. They were then passed on to me but I have not used them. I would like to get rid of them as a lot, but if you are very interested in one, I am willing to consider depending on what is offered for trade. I am mainly interested in the following subjects: -Pickups & SUVs -Light Commercial -Emergency Vehicles -Diorama items for 1/24-1/25 and 1/64
  4. Took a trip out to Dollar Tree and bought all of this for just under $10. I figured it would be a good reminder that many of the less glamorous modeling tools can be found for cheap. Also wanted to see what all the fuss was about with Mod Podge.
  5. Looking for this set.
  6. Is Lawton, Oklahoma the true legal city you live in? Because what idiot in his right mind would ever reveal his or her true legal city of residence?

  8. You just missed today's So Cal Open Model Car Show in Chatsworth.
  9. Outstanding job! That is a beautiful paint job.
  10. They're not black, I think it's just the lighting that makes it look that way.
  11. I used Tamiya polishing compounds on the roof and Meguiars on the trunk. The hood is untouched. Once I had burned through the roof, I decided to experiment on the trunk with a different brand. Your advice on multiple coats is duly noted. Oh, I know from experience. Though having a take-home car helps 😉
  12. So just to give some back story, I spray painted this car with Tamiya Primer and then 3 coats each of Tamiya white and black. I was happy with the paint job, but for the first time I decided to try to polish out the paint. I know some recommend to use clear before polishing to act as a barrier, but I didn't in this case. Long story short, I polished the white paint to the point that I burned through it. No problem, lesson learned. At least I got a chance to practice my polishing technique. I was originally going to strip the car and start over, but wondered since the original layers of paint are already there, should I just sand and add additional thin layers of paint and then clear? If so, what grit(s) should I use? Thank you in advance.
  13. Custom Squads is still up and running: http://www.customsquads.com/ However, I can tell you that they are out of stock of the particular decal sheet you're asking about. I think I have an extra sheet lying around somewhere. If I do, I'd be willing to trade you the CHP portion of the sheet. What do you have to trade?
  14. It has the 2008-2010 exterior. Not sure if some of the engine/content options limit it to a more specific year.
  15. Possibly the most underwhelming video yet for us 1/24-1/25 plastic guys.
  16. Very nice. Did you use the decals for the interior as well?
  17. As some of you may know, Revell introduced an absolutely gorgeous decal sheet on their most recent release of the 1976 Chevy Sport Pickup Truck kit. This decal sheet includes various interior and exterior decals that should add some great detail. Has anybody attempted to use these decals on the MPC Deserter or any of its previous incarnations? Specifically the interior/dash decals. I know the MPC kit is 1/25 while the Revell kit is 1/24 but I figured I'd ask before I gave it a shot.
