  1. So this is technically a question about a part that I'm designing at work. I need to put a tube with a 90* bend into another tube that has the same bend at the top kind of like old Flathead headers. I'm trying to figure out how I would make the cuts to the two different tubes.
  2. Did they ever make...

    As long as every thing looks proportional I think I'll be ok. I saw a Volvo Amazon gasser on pintrest and would like to try building it
  3. Did they ever make...

    That might just work, will 1/25 scale parts be to noticeable on a 1/24 scale car.
  4. Did they ever make...

    Is there any model kits of the Volvo Amazon in standard sizes? Not sure what year that car is, I'm thinking early to mid 60s?
  5. Moving with the collection

    fortunately for me we aren't moving to far so I plan on just putting them in boxes and making as many trips as I need. Other than that I'd say loosely wrap them in bubble wrap, use packing between the models and stack them on the top of the heap
  6. So I bought the 1/16 1984 Corvette, everything on the car is in great shape except under the drivers door, and the horizontal part of the "B" pillar. The rocker panel, and the horizontal part of the "b" pillar bow inward. I'm thinking that I'll have to jerry rig some kind of jig, but what about making the plastic a little more malleable? I can't get pics up just yet, my phone only takes selfies right now.
  7. 1/16 '84 Vette

    what do you think of them? I know I should have asked before I bought it but $35 for a sealed big scale kit I couldn't pass it up. I think I've only ever seen the 1/8 Revell, but never the smaller, 1/16 MPC. Any one have any pics?
  8. 68 Shelby Mustang convertibles

    all that work and I could have just bought the body convertible body
  9. Alfa J├Ągermeister

    well it is a race car
  10. P-38 drop tank dimensions

    That's the drawing that I've been working off of
  11. P-38 drop tank dimensions

    Is there any detailed drawings out there for the P-38's 300 gallon drop tank? I've seen some out there that give the overall shape, but no detail as far as the flange that mates the two halves together. I was thinking about making one in 1/8 scale using Big Deuce parts, and some 3-D printing.
  12. 1958 Chevy Delray - Ann Arbor Police

    especially for a Michigan state trooper, I always thought they were all blue.
  13. stirpping paint taking to long

    It's been so many years I can't even remember what type of paint it was other than it was one of those paint markers
  14. stirpping paint taking to long

    I think it was just regular testros paint and some clear coat
  15. With my Bel Air build I had to strip some parts using brake fluid, and it worked pretty good. Well now I'm trying to strip the paint off of another car, and I've had it in the fluid for about three days now, and really the only thing it's done is turn the fluid pinkish. Does the fluid loose it's potency after a couple of uses Did putting to much clear coat over the paint have any effect on it?
