  1. https://video.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?fr=yhs-arh-001&hsimp=yhs-001&hspart=arh&p=decal+pro+videos#id=1&vid=22d1bdc24c442c96513c4e644be0317a&action=click There are plenty of videos about this kit. Yes, there are a lot of steps and a learning curve to get to the actual decal made as there are a lot of steps and a learning curve to get a model built. Resin casting presents a huge learning curve too. This kit is only $90.00 bucks, that is really cheap for it's versatility. Don't underestimate it's usefulness around the house. You can make a temporary tattoo with it and apply a image on leather and cloth and even use this kit to make photo etch parts on brass. This company sells a fab in a box kit for electronic boards, that's how you can make PE parts, but both kits are mostly the same. Be sure you buy the laminator too.Yes, you can buy a used ALPS printer but the person mailing it to you really needs to know how to pack it properly. You might get something that does not work when you get it. I'm sure kids would really like the temporary tattoo thing as grownups seam to like permanent ones.
  2. https://decalprofx.com/ Buy a laser printer and one of these kits. You can apply the image to decal paper and turn it into a waterslide decal. A very versatile kit. Just don't buy a Brother brand of printer.
  3. WOW!! These models are real beauty's . Someone sent a pair of mirrors to me that look somewhat like the ones on the dark red car. The red car has some nice mirrors. If I had some specific Mopar mirrors I could make molds of them. Adding a decent sized stem to insert into a hole in the body would be nice to have on a master. Most antennas on sprues look pretty crappy especially when plated. There are acupuncture needles that look like they would work great for police and other such vehicles in scale. Some have a long spring at the base. They are very sharp. I did acupuncture for awhile so I borrowed a few. They are somewhere in my shop.
  4. I did make a mirrors mold, but I don't really like what is coming out of it. I need to remake the mold and add some mirrors to it. Mirrors are of course quite small and frail to make. Sometimes certain ones break just trying to get them out of the mold. This is why putting weight on a mold and putting it under pressure are important to get a good part out. It is not always easy to do. If I could do injection molding the process might be more accurate and consistent.
  5. https://www.sulky.com/item/sulky-kk2000-temporary-spray-adhesive-42-oz-120g You might try using this glue to adhere your flocking material of choice on your part instead of Elmers glue.
  6. I have a mold that makes a small block and big block hood but I don't know the year< I will have to find the mold.
  7. https://decalprofx.com/ This kit can do PE in light brass. With this kit you can create all kinds of decals. You can apply the image to clear decal paper and seal it and then use like a regular waterslide decal. A very versatile kit.
  8. http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=927 I found my bottle of chroming powder. A few years ago there were several pages about this product in this forum.
  9. Thanks, I did remove the chrome from this part and intend to make a mold of it and some other parts from this kit too. The tire mold was kind of a bust and I want to do it again. I need more mini me's. I do have Marty helping out too. Also I have a group of guys that are coming to my shop and help whip it into shape so productivity can be increased to. I am a horrible organizer!
  10. I'm pretty sure I have a container that has had very little of the material used out of it. I will look when I get time. It was a hot item for a short time. I bought twenty of them . Made some good money off of them on Ebay and put a few in the Desert Scale contest raffle. I'm not sure if I have any unopened ones left though. The name of it reminds me of a sneeze. Also I don't think this is the same company that developed the CLEARVIEW 2000 product. You are to paint a part shiny black and rub, rub, rub the powder on. Some say it was graphite powder. I think there was a pair of rubber gloves and a cheap face mask in the box too. You might try super fine sanding a pencil lead to make a powder and see what that does no shiny black paint.

  12. https://www.instagram.com/metalrys_chroming/ I just had a guy that I do work for send me this link. The guy is in Poland. He will do a 8X11 rack for $25.00 but postage is not cheap. Greg
  13. We are looking forward to doing more projects with you, Dwayne. Your master making abilities are very, very good.
  14. The body does look really nice. When this mold is done and working like I want I will get a copy prepped for another mold. This way I plan to have two good molds operational. We want a CV in every display case.
  15. A new body mold is needed. Mike gave a new master a good going over. He added more vitamins and minerals and improved the taste too. Please give Mike a standing ovation for all he does for us, and another thank you to Dwayne too for creating this kit for the modeling community. I will be updating some molds for other parts too. I have another pair of hands in my shop to help out as well. Marty is helping when he has the time and lives closer to me than Mike does.
