      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    White Tire Lettering
    Hello Everyone,
    I have a Revell 1:24 scale '79 Camaro Z28 model that is almost finished. I would like to have white lettered tires for this model, but the tires that came with the kit have smooth sidewalls with no molded in letters. Normally I would paint the letters if they were molded into the tire. What do you guys recommend I use for the tire lettering? Thanks!!!

    Installing Windshields and Backglass
    Hi Everyone,
    I am looking for advice on installing windshields and backglass. No matter how hard I try to be careful, I always get small areas of dried glue showing around the edges of the glass from the outside. I have been using the regular Testors glue in the red labeled tube, which is probably the wrong stuff for this application. Also, depending on the kit, there is usually not much room around the perimeter of the glass for the glue, which is part of the problem. What type of glue do you guys use? How do you install the glass? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!!!

    Thanks for all the great suggestions.... I will probably try the Tamiya paint first and go from there.

    1979 Camaro Z28 Bright Blue
    Hello Everyone,
    I am trying to find an aerosol color match for Bright Blue for my '79 Z28 model. I have looked at my local hobby shop, but can't seem to find the right color. Any suggestions? Thanks!
