  1. Progress on 36 Ford

    Sweet'36! Very nice custom work!
  2. Scale Finishes

    I got my Scale Finishes order yesterday. I made and paid for the order the first week of August. I never doubted that I would receive it but I understand we all get a little twitchy when an order takes longer than usual. A lot of us have been ripped off by unscrupulous or overwhelmed vendors so I understand the concern.
  3. Hot Rod Wheel Question

    A bit off topic but Snake, if you use that Stude V-8 the multi carb manifolds from the Revell Parts Pack Caddy fit very nice and is also an option in the 1:1 world. Just trying to give you another option.
  4. How many builds do you work on at a time?

    I don't think there's a wrong answer here. It's a hobby so whatever makes you happy is just right. I have 3 that I've been going back and forth on right now. The time I spend in the hobby room is pure enjoyment so it all counts. If you crank them out 1 at a time, good for you. If you spend your entire modeling career just building engines and never finish a build, good for you too! Just enjoy it.
  5. which is a good pearl acrylic?

    Thanks Monty!
  6. which is a good pearl acrylic?

    Dale and Rich, I have a few of the Aztek colors but haven't sprayed any yet. Do you have any tips on using them?
  7. I used this article to do an AWB Coronet when the magazine was new. I had the advantage of having a spare body (first one was warped, AMT sent me a new one) so I didn't need the filler strips. Instead I measured and cut both bodies using the wheel openings from the scrap body (cut farther back) on the good body (cut farther forward). It turned out great, needed no filler, just a skim coat. Sure wish I still had it!
  8. 427 Chevy Motor, Which Kit?

    The later issues (2in1) Revell '68 Corvette Roadster has a blower option for the 427.
  9. '23 T Delivery Van

    I hope this means the Depot Hack won't be far behind. Both nice old T kits.
  10. Ford 427 FE vs 428 FT -- differences?

    The Z-11 was just a larger version of the 409 (not all aluminum) with better flowing heads. The all aluminum 427 was a one year option in 1969. It was an aluminum version of the L-88 engine and was called the ZL-1.
  11. Ford 427 FE vs 428 FT -- differences?

    The Z-11 and the Ford 427 both came out in 1963.
  12. Ford 427 FE vs 428 FT -- differences?

    Just to add to the confusion the 427 was really only a 425. With the Z-11 being a 427 the FE was advertised as such to avoid piston envy.
  13. Missing Link Parts Page started on website!

    There seems to be a missing link to your website!
  14. Next up from Moebius ?

    How about a '54 Merc instead?
