  1. GM burgundy interiors

    Years ago, Testors/Model Master offered a shade called Kandy Scarlet. It's a fairly dark red, but as the name indicates, it's translucent. Maybe shoot it over gray primer and finish with semigloss or dullcoat. Looks like it's available on ebay for about $3.00.
  2. Since the Johan hearses are hard to find, and fairly expensive if you do, I was wondering what it would take to convert the Ghostbusters ambulance into a realistic hearse. Anybody done this?
  3. Another Baldwin Motion King Cobra

    Gotta agree with this. What gold paint did you use on the top?
  4. Mr Guthmiller not only cranks out some incredible builds, his Google prowess smokes mine too. Not sure what was wrong with my search parameters, but I appreciate the assist!
  5. I assumed this would have been standard equipment for '65, but I can't seem to find definitive pics of one hooked up.

    Wow, seeing how nicely this turned out makes me wonder why I never got around to building mine. That paint just rocks, and the vinyl top was a great addition. Any chance we could see some engine and/or chassis pics?

    I always look forward to your builds because of your creativity, your emphasis on accuracy and your ability to obtain fantastic results like this from mediocre kits. All this and great photography make for compelling posts.
  9. I'm looking for a windshield washer fluid bag like the one depicted near the front of the driver's side inner fender.
  10. 1/32 1936 Ford Convertible

    Sharp! Gotta ask: what blue paint is that?
  11. What Irked You Today?

    A friend of my recently bought her first house. Since she lives several hundred miles away, I decided to surprise her by sending a housewarming bouquet. I contacted her sister for advice on flowers & colors etc, and she recommended something from ProFlowers. When I placed the order, I specified Saturday delivery since the recipient is a teacher & I thought there'd be a better chance of her being home to accept delivery. As luck would have it, she was out all Saturday morning, so the UPS driver left the bouquet on her uncovered front porch during a heavy snow storm. Long story short, by the time she got home, they were so buried she didn't spot them till the next day. I contacted ProFlowers and all they would offer me was 25% off my next order. Guess what 25% of nothing is?
  12. If memory serves, Joseph still carries a few different sizes of black soft resin BF Goodrich Radial T/As.
  13. ‘67 442

    Looks like you overcame all the obstacles and ended up with a great build. Just out of curiosity, what issues were giving you fits?
  14. I'm considering these more expensive units because the Amazon reviews for most of the less costly visors list some common problems across the board, namely cheap acrylic lenses that produce distorted vision, break easily and are hard to change, and poorly designed plastic straps and fasteners that make it hard to keep the visor in place. There are already enough things in this hobby that can cause aggravation. The last thing I need to do is add more to that list.
  15. Reading some of the comments on Amazon led me to try and move up a notch or two in quality over the cheaper LS model. I don't know enough about this stuff to make an informed choice, so TIA to all who can give me a reason for why you'd choose one of these over the other. 1) Donegan DA-5 Optivisor https://www.amazon.com/Donegan-OptiVisor-Headband-Magnifier-Magnification/dp/B0015IN8J6/ref=asc_df_B0015IN8J6/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=241958687412&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=13298036531492140430&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9025080&hvtargid=pla-353619776071&psc=1 2) Donegan DA-4 Optivisor https://www.ebay.com/itm/Donegan-DA-4-OptiVisor-Binocular-2X-Magnifier-Adjustable-Headband-Style-/172541375374?_trksid=p2349526.m4383.l4275.c10#viTabs_0 Not sure what I did wrong with the link thing...
