    I will see if I can make a video with the footage I took using heat. While it didn't look right because the coloring separated it still worked. I have noticed how the members of this forum respond an they have done the same to me. As I read your original question an hopefully addressed it that should encourage you to keep asking so you might get that one intelligent response. The one post that I remember the most was when they wrote I would fail as a resin caster because I didn't know who Modelhaus was. If you need more help I am action-modeler.com also on Facebook an Youtube.

    So what makes that hose special you think you need it? What I am using is thin wall heat shrink tubing heated over wire. The trick will be finding the combination of the two that gives you a 1/25 3" diameter. Bonus if you find tubing in a grayer flat finish with writing on it. Heat Shrink 3/64ths

    I did do it for floormats with thier versamark adheasive an the heat gun designed for it, girlfriend already had the setup. It works but the colored powder I used turned white where it lost it's coloring. Stuck pretty good an it was a rubber look. I did record a video but since it whited out I didn't post it. With any other heatgun or even embossing heater I still would put the part on a wet cloth to help. Just use heat that can focus on a small area.

    The Revell '69 Z/28 engine is my favorite. I am including a photo of reference. The bottom engine is the 69 Nova, top right is the 69 Camaro, an top left is a resin block I made from the Camaro block an the diorama pieces from the AMT 66 Nova kit.

    Well other than using lacquer thinner you sound good. You can't control the dry time, evaporation rate of thinner. I have done the trick of mixing clear an paint with models, but I did it with full scale cars on areas like under the hood when you don't want full exterior gloss. Plus less chance to dry spray when spraying a separate clear coat.

    That is what I try to do in reguards to how wet to spray. I tend to want to go to light an worry it dries to quick an ends up like a coat of overspray. Can't tell anything from the photo so what issues do yoi think you have? I didn't know you could mix lacquer thinner with acrylics. I ise an actual automotive grade ppg reducer based on spray temp.

    Oh awesome, that is perfect. I have bought probably 100 kits looking for key parts an have missed out on most so this is great. If you need stuff let me know, I am trying not to cast box stock so don't have much ready. Look for stuff by action-modeler an that is me.

    Ok thanks, but I'm a caster myself an looking for where to find original kit parts.

    I wanted to ask about the valve covers reguarding what kit had them. Looked at a 1/24 65 corvette black rat kit but those didn't look in thier.

    Still looking? This is the first seat from the mold painted in black.

    this is how to do it from my understanding of ghost flames. Something you don't  see apparent in the paint until the sunlight highlights them. Be sure to thin oit the pearl an don't think you need to spray alot, to much an they'll show even in the shade. Flames under candie paint is just faint flames to me, nothing ghost about them. An also candie is just color mixed with clear, if you clear with an airbrush nothing to be afraid of.

    Ok now I'm ready to make the mold, should be happy with the detail now.

    Ok well this is what I have so far. Doing some scratch fill-in with some primer an might consider it done.

    Ahh yes, I know which seats you want. Best choice are from the MPC annual Camaro kits. I have some that I planned to clean up an cast. Was gonna sacrifice the interior tub to cast the rear seat in the same style as the newer amt 70 1/2 camaro. Probably could make a mold of the fronts only pretty quick if you can wait. Otherwise you can find sellers on ebay parting out vintage kits.
