    Besides the moldings I'm considering going this direction. God love photoshop.

    Here's a little more mocking up of moldings

    As I look at this after prime coat it seemed kind of plain so I'm playing with the idea of some moldings. Here's my first idea. Thoughts and comments welcome.

    I don't worry too much about the order but I do make sure the battery is always negative grounded

    Your work is very clean and I like this a lot. The only other thing you might concider is adding the drip rail. I feel it accents the smooth swoop of the chopped roof in a subtle way and connects it with the body lines.But hay, your the one you gotta please. Keep on keep' on.

    Thanks to all for the suggestions. I did have successs in removing the decal without damage to model or decal. I wet a Q tip and kept the decal damp for about 3-4 minuets. Then was able to slowly work a #11 exacto under a corner and then moistened the underside as well as the upper. After a few minuets it was free. I've now reapplied it with the point of the star in the right direction.

    Thanks for the kind comments. I've been pecking away. I decided to wire the engine but the firing order is probably wrong, I'm pretty sure the battery is wired with - ground though. Got the front bumper in Alcad. The pins showing are just alignment devices and will be hidden when done. The Dagmars still need some attention (see earlier pic). To me they need more bulk and after the headlights are in they may be too much, we'll see. At this point I'm liking the Sombreros but flippers are in the running.

    A delicate question
    I need to remove a decal from a tissue and balsa wood airplane. The model was painted with dope before acrylic paints were applied, then the decals were applied. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

    Not exactly on the road but I'll bet it soon will be.

    I'm beginning to play with Dagmar ideas and kind of like this setup. Any ideas, comments?

    Doing well but you know how it is. As you reach 70 it's seems to be just patch, patch, patch. How's everything going with you and the gang at KKIM?

    This is the start of the front bumper. It's 4 pieces of 1/8 square stock shaped and bent. Still lots of sanding and polishing.

    Tom here are a couple of pics of the rear of the roof. I'm not seeing a difference but then it may be time to recalibrate my eyes. The curve apparent in the top down photo may be creating an illusion when viewed at an angle.
