    On about every 1:1 car with a white interior the only parts that are white are the seats and the door panels. Everything else is another color.

    I'm not for certain, but I believe you can source both the wheels and scoop form the Lindberg Ramchargers 64 Dodge kit. Only problem is that there are only 2 of the wheels in the kit so you would need to rob another kit for the other 2.

    Went to the Ollie's in Barboursville, WV. today. All they had was F-150 kits and fighter jet kits.

    Problems with Round 2 decals??
    I just recently finished a 1/16 Buddy Baker Charger reissue and a Soapy Sales Challenger Funny car reissue from Round 2.  On both kits I experienced problems with certain parts of the decals being "tore" before I even slid them off from the backing when applying. The decals looked perfectly fine until I started sliding them off, it was like they had been sliced randomly with a knife. There were only problems with one decal on each kit sheet though. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    I'm quite sure that rustoleum is enamel based. I haven't used it on bodies, but on other parts I have had great results.

    I was wanting to start building a pro mod car and am having a hard time fabbing a set of brackets for the 4-link. Any of you have a template you go by and if so what are the correct 1/25 scale measurement.

    1/25 Drag car detailing questions
    I am wanting to get a little more detailed on my drag car models. I was wondering if any of you guys out there would have any templates or tutorials for scratch building on the following subjects.
    - 1/25 4link rear suspension brackets and other rear suspension items (no photoetched)
    - 1/25 wheelie bars styrene or metal
    - 1/25 front suspension items and set up for a tube chassis (no photoetched)
    Thanks for any help...

    Altering wheelbases
    Anyone out there got a tutorial or info showing how to alter the wheelbase, fab the body panels, and all other things associated to make an A/FX model. Any help would be appreciated.

    That would be a 61 Catalina. As far as I know there weren't any 1/25 kit versions of the Catalina produced. If you're interested in redoing a diecast, there is a 1/18 scale 61 catalina out there. If you're interested in working with a resin body MCW produces a ' 61 Catalina bubbletop in resin.
    Here's a pic of it from their site.

    Thanks everyone for the comments. I try to duplicate factory correct colors to the best of my ability, Mr. Moto you are correct on the for the carbs, I used plastikote cast gray to duplicate the correct color, aluminum paint is just way to shiny. As far as the interior color goes, 62 SuperDuty's had a tri color interior. I just went with a two tone one to keep from having to buy three shades of blue. I covered the lighter part with white primer and the dark part with black primer, then shot krylon fusion blue over it. That way I achieved a two tone interior using just one color of blue.

    Here's a few pics of my latest. Had quite some time on this one, frame was severely warped out of the box. Lots of rubber bands, super glue, and heat finally got it close enough to work.

    I like to build factory stock models, I had the same idea as you Skip. I just surfed the web looking for free restoration parts catalogs, and had them mailed to me. I now have a huge stack of reference for about every muscle car out there. it helps a great deal when doing correct paint on interiors, or misc. items on the model.
