      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Revell 1948 Ford Convertible top booth.
    I'm looking for the down top booth for the Revell 1948 Ford kit. 
    Just opened mine, and it's missing. 
    Can trade for 1955 Chevy parts (Revell) 1957 Chevy parts (AMT) or some other pats, like home cast whitewall tires. 
    Thanks in advance.

  2. Lovefordgalaxie added a post in a topic More on Molotow pens   

    I got the 1mm pen, and found out that the vast majority of use I'll make of it is to touch up kit chrome, mostly the attachment points to the plastic trees, and restoring bumper corners after sanding the mold lines. I actually enjoy doing the foil work a lot. It's one of my favorite things to do on a model. 
    Also, I got a cheap Sakura pen, that has a bigger point, took it off, and replaced the original Molotow point with it. This way I can do larger areas. I did a test on the Revell Navarro intake manifold on the '47 Ford I finished a couple of days ago. 
    The chrome look is a lot better than I would get fro Alclad. A coat of testor's acrylic clear didn't hurt it. 
    After use, I just clean the spare tip with car alcohol.

    Thanks guys.!! 
    Happy you like the Ford.

    It looks quite nice. 
    I like the color a lot. The car would benefit from some fail work instead of paint, so the entire model would match the great level of detail of the engine.

    Thanks a lot my friends. 
    It looks like this year I was bitten by the fat fender Ford bug...

    1947 Ford Sedan Coupe Kinder Egg
    Had a lot of fun building this Ford. 
    Started the build on 18th. I got the kit as a birthday present from my friend Nahim, who is a fellow Ford nut and Galaxie owner. On the next week, I choose the color, and had it mixed by my other friend Acacio, that owns a 1:1 car paint store. The color is FoMoCo Manson Maroon, done in synthetic enamel. 
    Decided to build the Revell '48 as a '47. From the outside, the major difference are the door locks. On '46 to '47 cars they have a indentation for one's thumb. The '48s had a tear drop, like if saying good bye as the body style went out of production. Also the rear splash pan has a full felt and it's steel on '47 cars. On '48 cars it's aluminum, and has just rubber washers to separate it from the body. Both are done in three parts, so it's practically invisible in kit form. Also, the '48s lost the steering wheel lock, and the cool togle by the ignition key, also some invisible differences in kit form. The major innacuracy would be the seats, that have the solid blue cloth pattern on the kit, a '48 thing. I didn't modify the seats, just painted them gray.
    The no name tires that come with the kit are kind of annoying, but I don't have any "named" tire that would look cool on the Revell wheels, so I wiped the out of center and poorly done printed whitewalls, and painted my own.  
    Like for me the nicest sound ever is a Flathead Ford trough glasspacks, I decided to build this car as I would do a 1:1. And that is the story behind the Kinder Egg nickname. The car is round and has a surprise inside. 
    Like I would never do any modifications to a car that could not be reversed back to stock in a day or so, and leaving no "scares" behind, I choose to do some simple bolt on mods. Just to make the car to sound mean. Some basic kitbashing between Revell kits and voilá, work done. 
    Talking about Revell kits, I will be building to my friend who gave me the kit, '48 Custom with a Y-Block, and some parts kitbashed from the AMT '56 Ford (slicks, gasser front tires, headers, etc). Sometimes we have to do some sacrifices for our buddies... I just don't know if it's next on the line, or a replica of Biff Tannen's '46 From Back to the Future movie. 
    Anyway, hope you guys like the old '47.

    Trying to install the rear window of any Revell '48 Ford kit, without any glue showing, is not for the faint of heart.

    WOW, that's quite patriotic.

    I always use Model Master or just plain little bottle Testors flat white acrylic. Diluted with windex, it airbrushes quite nicely, and sticks to the tires. Have some 20 plus year old models with the whitewalls still like new. 
    Enamel paint won't dry. 
    Latex, since it's water based, will work OK, I just don't know how well it will airbrush. It's worth a try, as it's a lot cheaper.

    Very nice looking Ford.
    Nice color, and a hopped up flathead. Can't ask for more.

    Thanks again gentlemen. 
    I have another one in the oven right now. 
    Painted Manson Maroon

    Hope to post it next week.  
  12. Lovefordgalaxie added a post in a topic 1998 S-10 Champ98, 1:43   

    Thanks guys!!
    Champ is just the special series name. Just 1200 trucks. Usually they were called just S-10 for the bare bones work truck, with all vinyl seats, rubber "carpeting" no a/c, no power anything, and basic four banger engine, S-10 Deluxe for the trucks with all the amenities plus the option of the V6, and Executive for the four door crew cab, with leather seats, automatic transmission, and faux wood on the dash.
    Those are quite easy to find here. The genuine GM stuff is less easy, but still available.

    Shouldn't this be in the drag racing section? The other day I posted here a pick up truck and it was promptly moved to the correct section.

  15. Lovefordgalaxie added a post in a topic 55 Crown Victoria   

    if it's anything like a '57 Fairlane I got from them, it's really bad. There is a odd texture all over, the trim is different from side to side, and there are spots where the resin is so thin you can see trough, while there are spots where it's so thick extensive sanding has to be done. Also, my body came ok, and warped after a few months. Still have it, but it's just too bad to use. It will be a lot easier to convert a AMT body into a Fairlane, than to fix the issues with the resin body. The '55 is a little more complicated, but can be done. Thank God I like the '56 better. Also bought a 1948 Ford tudor sedan conversion body from e-Bay, and it's rubbish. It looks like a styrene body that has being stripped about 10 times with lacquer thinner. I don't have the necessary skill on body work to convert a coupe into a tudor, but i'm thinking about trying. The second time I get a resin body that is bad.
