I store my paints in small Mason jars and just stir with a plastic straw. The one paint that I do stir is craft acrylics. I use them on chassis and interiors. They tend to clump so I rigged up a little stirring station using a couple of pieces of wood and my variable speed dremel. The stirrer is just a piece of coat hanger that I bent at a 90 degree angle and flattened. The tip only sticks out about 1/8" and stirs the paint without throwing it all over the place.
The Newhart car isn't even close to the one in the opening of Newhart. It even says The Bob Newhart Show on the box. That was the title of the 70s series. He walks to work in that intro. Newhart is the 80s series with the brown Olds 4 dr sedan in the intro. I have no idea why they'd issue such an incorrect model.
Love the color choices. My first car that I bought was a 61 Chevy Impala 2 door hardtop, black outside and red inside. Some day I'll finish the scale version. Beautiful work! What did you use as an adhesive for the homemade BMF?
I quit trying to live up to any examples on this forum because it's fruitless. I'm simply incapable of doing all the intricate detail work and superior execution that I see here. They make beautiful models but I just prefer to build to my own standards. Not show stuff, just decently finished. I sure get a lot of ideas here as well as excellent advice.
