  2. How to judge car models?

    I've never entered a contest, but seeing the incredible 3D printed engine by Mad Mike in Under Glass (do take a look) made me think that if products like this become available, how can a contest judge make valid comparisons except in box stock classes? Of course, even there you could have people getting someone else to paint their model, etc.

  4. PE Question

    I am in the process of building the Lindberg 67 Olds 442. Im trying out my first PE set, from Model Car Garage. In the PE set are the 3 spokes for the steering wheel center. Do I cut away the rim and use the PE set or does it go over the stock part? Also, any suggestions on how to polish/buff the parts would be appreciated. Actually, any tips any one has on using PE would be appreciated. Thanks
  5. I'm looking for aftermarket or kit sources for putting wide performance tires on a 49 mercury...but with a wide whitewall. It's a custom build with a turbo Porsche V-10, so I'm talking mini-tub width on the rear...but I don't want the super skinny sidewall like you'd see on most performance tires. But I also don't want the high sidewall look like stock...somewhere in between. Everything I can find (kit or aftermarket) is either wide tread and skinny sidewall, or enough sidewall but narrow tread. I am toying with cutting a pair of leftover kit tires down to make one wider tire, and then cast it, but it isnt going well. Any thoughts? Here's sort of the look I want...not too much sidewall, but enough for the stripe... What I DON'T want...

  7. Nascar Aftermarket parts

    Being I'm within the first four months of being into this hobby and have taken a liking to race cars with Nascar top priority to this point, I know very little about after market, detailing or photo etched parts for the Nascar kits. How or should I say what is the way to find out ALL the after market, detailing, or photo etched parts available for Nascar kits in the scale model hobby ? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
