Today I finally received my last and final order from Modelhaus... I didn't unpack everything so I don't have pictures... I got a 1950 Nash, a 1957 Desoto, a 1957 Lincoln, a 1959 Oldsmobile, and the interior for a 1956 Plymouth. I thanked Don & Carol for their fine products and service over the years, and wished them a happy and safe retirement. Carol responded, advising that it will most likely be another year before they are actually able to retire...!!!!!!
I'm currently working on a '59 Dodge Street Machine using a Johan promo. After experimenting with a parts box bumper, I sanded off the mold lines on the edges of the front bumper and then used a polishing kit to remove all the scratches. I then used a 4mm Molotow pen to "re-chrome" where I sanded. It came out fantastically good and you can't tell the difference between the chrome plating and the Molotow ink. I'll post pictures as soon as I can. I can't wait to try the Molotow pens to "chrome" some resin grilles and/or bumpers.
When I built my '58 Cadillac by Imex/Arii, I had trouble getting the gold foil to stick when trimming the hood emblems. I applied a thin coat of clear enamel to the emblems with a small brush and then burnished the gold foil down using a QTip and a wooden toothpick. I let that dry overnight then trimmed the foiled emblems with a fresh XActo blade the next day. It came out great.
