    I never dreamed it could be that bad.  The type of resin we use can make a big difference.

    Hi Harry,
     Here is some fuel for thought. This guy might be able to help you with the info you are looking for.  Here is a series of videos you can watch to entertain you.  I have heard this guy on the Coast To Coast AM  radio program a few times.  He has a book you can buy also.  The websites have lots of great information.

    Here is a quick Evilbay search.

    I went for acupuncture a few times.  You might do a search for the acupuncture needles like on Evilbay.  They look like they might make nice scale antennas and maybe other scale details.  Of course they are very sharp.  The end of a guitar string might be good too.

    Hi Dwayne,
      Yes, creating a master takes a lot of dedication and hard work for the hobby.  We do appreciate your taking time to do this.  I thought I had read in your post above that you realize your master was much more delicate than you thought.  You got upset in a personal email when I explained that your beautiful master might break upon removing it from the master mold and I understand that it might make you sweat.  I suppose it is like praying that your wife survives giving birth due to a difficult pregnancy.  You are doing a great job.

    Be Careful using alcohol on resin parts especially denatured alcohol.  You might literally rub away a script on a body or part.  That is one reason I don't use the 300 series white resin from Smooth - On,  I use their Task 8.  Once it cures it will withstand being boiled in water and is chemical proof.  If the recommended curing process was followed it would be good for 260 degrees of heat.

    Nope, never heard of it.

    WOW! Dwayne.  That looks really good to me.  You should take your assistants lead and go take a nap and relax after all that tedious work.

    I would suggest this kit.  I have seen first hand the size of the supercharger on a 2004 GT 40.  It is quite large and impressive.

    My biggest pet peeve is how a mint rare convertible body gets treated by a seller who does not give that flimsy windshield frame the slightest thought.  It might be in great shape before mailing it.  The seller might pile parts on top of it too.  I purchased a rare 63 Buick Electra kit from Model Car Mountain and asked them to please put the body in a separate box.  I told him I did not care if the postage was more and he happily agreed to do so for me.  The one good thing to do for a convertible is to take some cardboard like a cereal box and make a rectangle out of it about 3/4 inches wide and set it over the frame and tape it to the sides of the body.  A cardboard condom of sorts. LOL

    I grew up setting in the front seat on the fold down armrest between Dad and Mom in a 4 door 58 Buick Century.  My three older brothers sat in the back seat.

    You might inquire to Paul, I think is his name,  I have purchased items in the past and had great luck with them.  You are welcome.

    There might be some mis interpretation here.  The house, barn and property would not be part of the business sale unless you could afford to buy said buildings also.  This is just so you would not have to move or disturb how the business is set up and operated.  It would be less than a hundred feet to work.
