  1. Here's what I've built. It works great. Enamel is dry to the touch in a couple of hours. I usually leave stuff in there over night, just to be safe. http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=60942&hl=%2Bez+%2Bbake+%2Boven
  2. Should work as long as you can get the temp down around 100-110F. Ah go karting. Tried that back in 1989 and promptly broke my back. Raced motocross, hare scrambles and enduros and never hurt myself. Thought go karts would be safer since I'd turned 45 in 1989 and wanted "something safer".
  3. Donn Yost recommends Keith Marks Decals for emblems and badging but he doesn't make them for the 61 Impala. Does anyone know of a source for them?
  4. I didn't read every post so sorry if I repeat someone else. One way to save big at HL is to go to their website and sign up for their newsletters. You'll get a 40% off coupon with each one. That'll make a $6.19 can of paint cost you $3.71 each, plus tax. You can only use 1 coupon per visit per person but I print extra coupons and get the better half to buy for me too. Hope this helps.
  5. I'm a novice builder but I decanted some French Blue and shot it through an air brush. It worked fine without thinning.
  6. October weather is really iffy even when the Runoffs were at Road Atlanta. I attended several times when they were there. I sure miss Speeds' coverage of them.
  7. Well, actually I do have arthritis. Come back and talk to me in 20 years.
  8. I'd love to see more. Nothing like SCCA events. I'm a former SCCA member. Chattanooga RE in 91 and 92. Didn't they do the Runoffs at RA this year?
  9. Nice detail work on the Mini engine. I've got the Chaparral in my stash. Hope it turns out as nicely as yours did.
  10. Do many of you use this tool? What is your opinion about using it? http://www.micromark.com/micro-sander,7704.html?ns_md=Email&ns_sc=Marketing&ns_cn=12WS060&ns_pc=12WS060&utm_source=Marketing&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=12WS060
  11. I love all of them. Would love to see bigger pics of the Chaparral and the Mini.
  12. That is a knockout replica. I've got one in the stash. I hope it can compare with your result when I'm finished.
  13. Excellent work! Love the color selection.
  14. Great looking! PS I'd name the driver Stumpy.
  15. Great concept! Keep working on it.
  16. Wild concept! I like it, especially Heisenberg!
  17. Beautiful work, especially the BMF. This is another one I want to build eventually. You did a great job!
