    Revell '57 Nomad Windows
    Can anyone part with the Revell '57 Chevy Nomad windows? I need clear ones, not the tinted ones. I have lots to trade.

    Hold the bottle by the cap under running hot water with pliers. Grip the cap with the pliers at the very top of the lid so as not to damage the threads on the cap. After you are done with the paint, wipe the excess paint out of the cap and from around the top of the bottle.

    What to use for a white vinyl interior
    I am building a '55 Chevy, an early 60's style mild custom with a shaved hood and trunk and '56 Olds Fiesta hubcaps. Anyway, I want a white interior with just slight satin finish to resemble the naugahyde, (vinyl) that was used back then. In the past, I have used Testors flat white with a satin clear coat. The problem is that the clear has a slight tint to it that gives it an "off-white" color. Can anyone recommend what can use for a true white color?

    I love '36 3 windows. I built  one a while back with the chopped top. I remember having a hard tome getting the grille to fit correctly. also, the roof didn't line up all that great to the body. Other than that it was pretty good.

    Let's say I take the easy way out and buy a resin body. One is avaliable from Modelhaus. Can anyone comment on the quality of their bodies? Are they ok, or is there another manufaturer that I should look for?

    Help converting a '55 Nomad to a Sedan Delivery
    Has anyone ever converted AMT’s ’55 Chevy Nomad to a Sedan Delivery? I know I could just buy a resin body, but that would take all of the fun out of it. My plan was to remove the Nomad trim and fill in the grooves in the roof. I have a set of the old Revell ’56 Chevy 2 door sedan doors. I plan on removing the slanted B-pillars from the Nomad and fitting in the window frames from the ’56 doors. I am open to suggestions for filling in the rear side windows. I suppose I can make panels out of some sheet styrene that I have. But I am not sure how to wrap/roll the sheets around the rear corners to meet up to the rear window frame. Or, I can use the nomad glass somehow, (which is already rolled at the rear), and mold it in place and paint it. Can anyone offer any advice or comments?

    I thought they moved the apocypse to Jan 6, 2013. The Mayans didn't account for leap years.

    The underside looks great. How did you get the "weathered" effect?

    I second that. I used the rears from th T-Bolt kit, perfect fit.

    Seems pretty unanimous so far. I haven't seen anyone say that wrapping in paper is that way to go. What tick me off is that I PM'd tell him about his packaging skills and he hasn't had the decency to respond with even a "sorry my bad".

    Suggestion for Shipping Model Kits
    I recently had two different "Wanted to Trade" posts going. I was able to trade off a lot of kits, get a lot of stuff that I was looking for, and meet some good guys in the process. Everything went smooth except one trade. One member sent me a '62 Pontiac. All he did for shipping was wrap the kit box in paper which offers absolutely no protection from postal workers whose only goal in life is to load and unload trucks as quickly as possible. In addition to that, he taped the paper to the kit box with duct tape. Needless to say, the kit was smashed to hell. And, when I did remove the paper, the duct tape tore a big part of the printing off of the box, (not that that mattered, because the box was already crushed). Sooooo, just a small piece of advice to those who didn't already figure this out, Please, when shipping a model kit, it is a good idea to put it in a cardboard box. The post office gives you the boxes and tape for free, (as long as you use Priority Mail); and wrinkled up old newspapers are a very inexpensive packing material. I have bought and sold many over the years, and have always had good luck doing it this way.

    Thanks guys. Yeah as you can tell, I'm a Mopar fan, (although my last 5 or 6 builds have been 50's and 60's style rods and customs). Getting the Coronet a few years back was my boyhood dream come true. The only downside was selling off a load of vintage model kits to help raise some of the cash.

    Hi Everyone, I've been checking out the forum for a couple weeks now and I decided to go ahead and register. My youngest is at the age where he doesn't need constant supervision now, so hopefully I'll have a little free time for model building again, (when I'm not messing with my real one). I attached a few pictures of my builds as well as the real one.
