  1. Welcome to our plastic playground Joseph.
  2. I usually paint down in my basement, and I normally put at least 2, sometimes 3 coats of paint depending on the color. Then I normally put on at least 3 coats of clear to have a good layer of protection when I do the BMF work.
  3. I've used Detail Masters detail wire for upholstery piping several times with great success. As Daniel stated above, I used Zap-A-Gap very slowly and carefully, applying it in small amounts using a toothpick.
  4. Nice work Uwe. Welcome to our plastic playground.
  5. Nice job for your first try. It'll get better, and easier, each time you do it even though it is a bit time consuming.
  6. I am soooooo glad that I was able to order and get everything that I wanted from Modelhaus before they shut down. I still have 2 of their complete kits of 1950's cars ('57 Lincoln & '59 Oldsmobile), and a couple of 1950's conversion pieces ('51 Ford & '52 Chevy) that I have yet to work on. While I definitely wouldn't mind making a huge profit on them by selling them on EBAY, that's not why I bought them. They are going to get built, as long as I live long enough to do it.
  7. As a lover of all 1950's cars, I use promos and/ or diecasts to fill the "gaps" in the cars that are not kitted...... as follows...
  8. Carl, I am so very sad to hear this news from you. I wish you well and pray for you. Please try to remain a member of our "club" here as you are a valued member my friend.
  9. Yeah...... Just do an EBAY search for "Modelhaus" and see the ridiculous prices this stuff is listed at.
  10. I wholeheartedly agree. Scalecoat takes just about any paint off of plastic, whether it is model kit parts or promos. Just don't use it on resin as it will melt and/or deform it.
  11. You could also try using a piece of clear red sprue.
