    What about the line that Model RRs use for power lines?

    You could make your own with hooks made from paper clips.

    Sorry for your loss.
  3. Ironman63 added a post in a topic Surely Fujimi or Aoshima will do one of these...?   

    I like it! I would definitely buy 2 or 3 even though I mainly model Nascar, Big Rigs and American muscle cars. Be a nice change of pace. It's a great looking ride.
  4. Ironman63 added a post in a topic What is the web site for OEM paint colors   

    This site doesn't sell paint but it is a good place to find paint codes and colors by year:

    http://www.paintref.com

    I just click the "Paint Chips" tab at the top left then select the manufacturer and then the year.

    AMT 1971 Dodge Charger R/T Center Console
    Anyone know if there is a 71 Charger that has bucket seats and the center console? I'm building a Super Bee and the 1:1 for my inspiration has bucket seats and the console. If there is not one, I guess I will scratchbuild one. I have already reworked the bench seat into bucket seats so if must be done, so shall it be. lol


    Thanks for any help,
    Mark

    On the Spaz Stix site, it says that the mirror chrome is "specially formulated for Lexan". What primer would you need to use this on styrene or is it incompatible with styrene? Thanks.

    My choice is gold as well.
  8. Ironman63 added a post in a topic Paint Chips For Your Bottle Paint Containers   

    I hadn't thought about doing paint chips. That's a great idea.

    I haven't started doing a lot of mixing colors yet, so my system is a little different. I bought some 1 inch round labels(Avery 5408) and type the color on it, then stick it on the cap. Then I print the month and year and stick it on the bottom. I also make the background Gray for Metallizers and Green for Acrylics.

    Thanks for the replies, guys.

    Ace,
    each fan is 240 CFM, but I will need to use flexible hose to vent (about 8 feet). From reading some of the other posts, you need more suction for the flex rather than the solid pipe. Do you think this might be overkill?

    Thanks.
  10. Ironman63 added a post in a topic Paint Booths & Safe Ventilation?   

    I'm looking to build a paint booth(3x2x2) and use 2 bilge blowers for the fans. For the power supply, would this be what I need:

    DC 12V 5A 10A 15A 20A 30A Regulated Transformer Power Supply For LED Strip USA

    Will I need one for each blower ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/200489271226?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 )? The blowers are 4A and use a 6A fuse.

    If I only need one, should it be a 10A or something higher?

    Electrical connections are not really in my wheelhouse. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Model Expo has several different sizes of chain. Love the truck!
  12. Ironman63 added a post in a topic Revell 1965 Chevy Truck Help   

    Thanks for the replies. That's what thought when I couldn't find one online.

    I think I'll try the .025 V-groove siding first and see where it goes from there.

    Revell 1965 Chevy Truck Help
    I need the chrome side sail molding that says "Custom" for my build. Is there someone in the aftermarket that sells these? I appreciate any help in advance.

    Painting Woodgrain Tutorial
    I ran across this and thought I would share:

    http://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/20-wood-grain-a-how-too/

    I know it's not on a model car, but his step-by-step method should easily transfer to cars. It also shows how to get the different shades of wood desired.
