    a few years back when they were rereleased, did they do the Volkswagen bug? I never seen one and figured someone here would know.

    Nice job hondo, that body does fit that chassis well. i was getting ready to build the tobias gremlin, after seeing this i might try that chassis with the gremlin body instead. Thanks for the tip.

    body work question
    I build mostly short track race cars that body work is not as important than show cars but the problem i have is when i fill area's like panel lines on doors, trunks or 3 piece body seams it takes very little filler.I sand it so it is perfectly smooth, then when i prime it, it seems to show up or almost look as if it has lifted or sunken. What can i do to keep the body work underneath from doing this. I have been using bondo 801 glazing and evercoat glazing putty.Primer is usually plastikote,testors fine gray or tamiya. No matter which combination i use i seem to get the same results??? The panel lines seem to reappear after the next coat of primer or paint. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

  14. grt222 added a post in a topic Could really use spray can advice   

    Well jason, first of all most of the advice you get here in my opinion is correct, these guys are great. As for me i use to be strickley spray cans.I bought airbrush items here and there until i had everything to use it correctly.I bought my airbrush at hobby lobby with the 40% coupon. you can also get the airbrush online just as cheap if you shop around. This place has good deals( now use both techniques. I personally like the plastikote primers and dupli that you can get at most car parts stores. I stick to mostly hobby type paints like tamiya,testors and model masters. As someone else mentioned i purchased the donn yost DVD's and his technique of cutting the bottle enamels with lacquer thinner works well.
    i tried the rustolems once but personally didn't like the results. good luck with what direction you decide to go with.

    Thanks Bill, that is what i was looking for. $7.50 for 100 is better than $8-$10 for 8.
