  1. This really makes more sense considering how much work goes into finishing the exterior and how much easier and smaller the area that needs masking is on the interior.
  2. That little motorcycle is one of my grails! Hot Dog! Can finally score one for not a small fortune and not resin! Oh, and the Imperial could be used in a small chase scene diorama with the 27 ford T police car!
  3. I think he might be asking about the tank pressure not spraying pressure. I have an old Sears Craftsman pancake compressor that has a regulator that shuts off the pump at 125 psi. If that helps. Can paint at 15 to 20 psi for a couple of hours which is usually the limit of my paint sessions. l’d be careful about making your own pressure vessel though. Unless you know what you’re doing, it could be a bit dicey! If you really need to store air, Harbor Freight sells a separate air tank that can be filled for off site use. For the price it may be a safer option.😉
  4. Remember when you were a kid and wanted to glue on all the custom parts that came with the kit? This is the adult rich kid version!
  5. I haven’t waisted my time with Sears Craftsman since they started limiting their exchange policy on certain power tools before they sold the brand. I’ve found Harbor Freight will exchange tools no questions asked like Sears did years ago! Yeah, I know, “cheap China made carp! Only name brand ‘murican made for me!” Well, in my opinion they have improved a lot and you’d be surprised by the quality most of their tools have. But, if you’re a professional and use your tools daily, then fine go for it! But for the price and the limited use these tools are gonna get around my house, it’s not worth having expensive ones lounging around my garage till the next time I need it. By the way, it’s sometimes been cheaper to buy a power tool from the Freight than rent it too!
  6. This looks exactly like the one I got from Harbor Freight but without the tank. As for noise level, my wife snores louder than the sound this makes!😜
  7. The thing is, do you like NOT being a Mo Tor!?😂
  8. After watching the video I kinda wish there was some focus on the rear tail lights considering this has been a disappointing feature in past iterations of this kit. I had a hard time telling if it was better, worse or “meh”. Does anyone have more info on this? I’d like to get one of these kits but I’ve got a few of the older versions with the lumps of plastic tail lights already Just saw the other thread by “Casey” on this same subject! Answered my question! Much better!
  9. Yea, I’m betting the Coca Cola collectors will buy these up in a heartbeat! I have a friend of mine that will snap up anything wit a coke label! His apartment is loaded with coke paraphernalia it’s ridiculous!😄
  10. So, I’m not seeing this kit on Hobbylinc or Model Roundup sites yet or the Revell site. Is it still scheduled for release this July?
  11. E.J. Potter the Michigan Madman. Wouldn’t have known by the post if I hadn’t seen the episode of American Pickers that highlighted his motorcycles and discussed his career and racing style!
  12. One idea might be sandblasting the surface. I’ve checked some YouTube videos and web sites that describe the process. Depending on the grit used, it can be done to clean, even out color, add decoration or apply a textured finish. Could be a more affordable alternative than skim coating more concrete.
  13. Thanks for turning me on to this! This is Hot Wheels meets Pinewood Derby times 10! Can’t wait for more!
