    You just have to learn how to read Harry, man........ If he makes a comment at all, he is showing an interest whether the comment be positive or negative. We are here to learn to build better and he's trying to make us do just that..............

    A little more progress! Got the engine mounted, during test fitting I found that I'm going to have to wait until the front fenders are on before mounting the front wheels... between the wiring and the oil filter on the opposite side, there isn't much room to slide the fenders around the engine...... also wanted to show you guys the texture that Model Master Fabric Tan dries to. It's rough, like scale fabric! I use it a lot for interiors for that reason.......... 
    Have a look-see and feel free to comment..............

    I was asking about 1:1 wheels, friend....... Your story reminds me of an incident that happened when I was a kid. Someone was trying to steal the rims off of my old man's Satellite he had at the time. The car fell off the jack, making enough noise to wake Dad....... He runs outside wearing only a shot-gun. He was able to scare off the thief, and kept his rims! I guess he was lucky that time...............  They were Raiders, BTW......

    Cragars vs. Keystones
    I'm barely old enough to remember the Keystone Raider wheels. The Klassics are still being made, I believe. I was once told there was an argument that Cragars were the better rim, or that Keystones were better. 

    This is the classic Cragar design............

    Here is a pic of a Raider.......
    I'm just curious as to which rim you guys prefer..... They are very similar in design, so what caused the disagreement as to which was better?

    Thank you, Mike....... As for painting the body, I will have to see how things go. The plan is pearl white with a silver roof and trunk...... It may be easier to get everything masked if the front clip is separate.................
    Will have more progress in the next few days, so stay tuned....!

    Thanks, fellas!  I'm having lots of fun with this awesome kit so far...........

    Circled in green is the part of the driveshaft I was asking about...... it looks like a cable or spring of some sort. Does it line up to the shifter mechanism on the trans?

    Aerosedan progress...... 7/23



    Started on this '47 Chevy and wanted to show you guys what I've done so far.......... I have a question, though.. When it comes time to install the driveshaft, where does the tube that sticks out of the shaft go? or Which direction should it be pointing?
    Thanks for looking in, feel free to comment..............

    Thank you for the additional help, fellas....... Is there a good site for G scale stuff? Builders in Scale mainly deal in HO and O scale........ I've also been looking at how-to stuff online and may be able to make something close..................

    You should read up on this guy! He spent the better part of his life studying ancient Sumerian texts in an effort to prove that the planet Nibiru really exists.....

    Some of the theories out there are really far-fetched, but my mind is one that doesn't really believe anything, so I believe anything is possible...... If that makes any sense!

    Bill, I'm sure you have read about the Annunaki! We were put here to be slaves, to mine Earth's gold.......... There is an alien head on the Oreo cookie, it's a large oval with an antenna coming out the top.......!

    Thanks, Steven.... I looked up both companies but came up empty.........
    Is anyone here a member of LayItLow? I searched the site but I think you have to be a member to access anything on there. I was hoping someone did a tutorial on making one of these..... I found a JADA Diecast '49/'50 pickup with a swamp cooler, but it's $25............................
    Thank you guys for any additional help!

    I made an attempt to use the accordion folded paper idea. they are a little bulky, but with smaller pleats, I believe I could make it passable...... This is just wax paper like comes in some chrome parts bags......

    Tell me what you think, or how I could make them look better.................
