    I had problems in the past with wax softening acrylic auto clear. What I did to fix it was to let the body in the sun a few hours, taking a look once in a while to prevent it from getting too hot. It's the UV that does the trick, so a food dehydrator won't work.

    Thanks Gary!!
    You know me, I'm very, very biased towards AMT. It's my favorite model kit company. I like Revell too, and Tamiya (even tough they don't make my kind of car, they have the absolute best supply's one can buy) but AMT got me into this thing of building small plastic replicas of cars I wish I could have, but about 25 times bigger. And the kit is almost contemporary to the real car!! That is a good thing, it means the guys that built the masters for the bodies had the cars fresh on their minds, so they wouldn't do something out of proportion like the Revell '57 Ford... I really like AMT's style, of molding stuff on the chassis. Less parts to be painted separately, less hassle, and less things to fall out of the model over the years when you take them from the box to play a little. You can see I'm obsessed in adding detail, like spark plug wires, and hoses, and fuel lines, and battery cables, and PE parts... NO!!! Box stock is good enough.

    Thanks a lot!!
    Thank You Dave!! By the way, did you do a box art of this kit for AMT?

    Yes, talk about bad taste. I guess there is a lot of people that want to be different, and having more money than brains, keep guys like Foose on business. I have nothing against him, as I don't know the guy, but I really dislike his "work". I mean, that hideous '56 Chevy he built for Titus, that thing is UGLY. He ruined the car. I watched almost all episodes of Overhaulin', and the only Foose built I likes was a early Bronco he built close to stock. 
    Let's put it this way: If he depended on me to make a living, he would starve.

    Good Lord, that 'Bird has a Cammer!!!
    Keep the revs up, and don't have mercy on the clutch, and I doubt someone will pass you.

    I bought this same kit a few months ago, and have no plans for building it in the close future, but will be keeping an eye on this build. Maybe it can be my first one for 2018. 
    I always thought those cars had a odd feature, the very small front seats. 
    For sure, it's the nicest Studebaker, at least IMHO.

    Reversing Foose's damage to the car, is always welcome.

    I keep coming back to see this one over and over. It's such a nice work.

    Thank you my friend. It means a lot.
    Danke mein Freund. Ich bin ein großer Fan von deiner Arbeit.
    Thanks a lot Chiris!!
    Thank You Robert!
  11. Lovefordgalaxie added a post in a topic Automotive Car Books? Who Collects?   

    Have a good amount of books. 
    All of them on FoMoCo cars, but nothing on cars newer than the late 60s.

    Thanks!!
    In Portuguese the texture is called "diamantado". I didn't know the correct term in English. 
    That foil is way too thick for actual foiling, but I found lot's of uses for it.

     Thank you gentlemen!! Very appreciated. 
    Thanks my friend!! 
    The door sills? I used some creativity. I have a roll of very thick aluminum foil for repairing air conditioning piping, and I use it once in a while on small detail bits. For the door sills I took the cap of my pin vise, and roled it over the tape, creating the texture.

    The tires were home cast.
    Thanks a lot!! The tires were home cast. I did two different models.

    The car is not my cup of tea, but my friend, what a incredible work!! 
    The car looks absolutely real.

    1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria.
    Just finished today my latest glue bomb.
    This one broke the record of longest build, not that I worked on it for a long time, but I worked on the car on and off and the build took almost three months. Usually I take a week, maybe two...
    Even with all this time in the making, the car is box stock AMT for the most part. Exceptions:
    Tires cast by myself in rubbery resin with a white resin whitewall insert.
    Carpeting done with velour paper cut to fit. I know that flocking is easier, but I could never get a decent result, so I use paper instead. 
    The colors are factory stock, in Fiesta Red and Colonial White, done with automotive enamel. The interior is the black and white vinyl option, instead of the almost uni-present color keyed white and red. Ford offered the white and black interior for all color combos, and I think it makes the car to look a lot more classy. That's the way I would order one brand new.  
    No wiring, no photo-etch, no aftermarket stuff. 
    Not even the foil is bought, it's household aluminum foil and gold leaf bond. 
    Anyway, hope you guys like my old Ford, one of my favorite kits, one of my favorite cars, and my favorite engine, the Ford Y.
