  1. I've managed to luck into a few. Picked up a Chrysler Turbine, 31 Cadillac Town Car, S/C Rambler and a 1962 Chrysler 300 convertible. The only one that needs real TLC is the Caddy.
  2. I really like the shape of this. Great salvage work!
  3. I almost always buy kits for subject matter, but kit price also tends to be a factor. Sometimes I don't have the cash to play with sometimes so I'll try to get something cheap. I tend to stick with cars mostly, but I've got a few starships and some anime girls. Box art doesn't matter as much as kit accuracy and quality. I'm perfectly happy buying a kit without a box. So far the only thing I dont care for on model building is painting the body. I dont have a set place to paint the body or set up an airbrush and I suck at spray painting, so I end up having to strip them pretty often. As far as real vehicles I would like to have. I'd want two of my old cars back: my 1972 Buick Skylark hardtop and my 1978 Monte Carlo. I'd also like to have a couple of my brother's cars, an '81 Firebird and a 1971-1973 Dodge Charger. Beyond that, maybe a "land yacht" Cadillac, like a 1973 Brougham.
  4. Testors clear parts adhesive for glass and non-stressed parts. CA for parts that take a little more stress, carefully applied with a toothpick.
  5. I use them all the time for various things. They're great for interiors and detail painting.
  6. Only problems I have with scratch building is just having hammer hands. Big fingers and tiny parts do not mix well
  7. This is good to know. I just got one of these in yesterday.
  8. The lines on the rear end remind me almost of a taller Subaru BRAT. I'd consider removing that rear cover altogether if possible.
  9. I usually pin things together with flower wrapping wire. Got a bit the exact size of the wire.
  10. Flat black, semi-gloss black, flat white, flat red, aluminum, steel and some custom mixes for replicating rust or a wash for metallics.
  11. Been working from home since thursday last week. I've been tinkering with model kits between calls. Got my 1962 Chrysler 300 convertible torn down and repairing.
