Scale I Build

Found 2 results

  1. So this morning I broke open a can of Tamiya TS-36 fluorescent red. I laid a light coat down over gray primer. It looked purple. (As seen here on the paint stand) I had warmed up the can, so it went on real light. I’ll let that flash and then started putting on slightly heavier coats. Something did not seem right. The more paint I put on, the more it went from purple to blood red. I was hoping for Richard Petty’s vermilion red. Not quite. But it came out too nice to take the paint off and start over. As luck would have it I have the Hawaiian punch decals. So I guess this will be the Hawaiian punch car now. I’m going to have to do some testing on spoons to get this color situation straightened out. Is it possible that the wrong color is in the can? Has this happen to anyone? Your thoughts are appreciated thank you!
  2. Recently, Salvinos J R Tooled up an LS nose for the NASCAR Monte Carlo kits. Since Stock Cars in the 80s hadn’t gotten completely away from their production counterparts yet, I thought I would test fit this nose on the most recent release of the Monte Carlo SS. Mounting it directly to the front fenders resulted in a nose pointing up. So I pulled the top away from the hood until the lower body line leveled out. I measured the gap at the top and transferred that measurement to the bottom. I placed a piece of tape from the measurement to the top corner and cut out a pie slice from each side. That pulled the whole nose into the fenders. The result matched what I found in the dealership brochure. I think this is going to work pretty well. I will have to scratch build a grill and headlights right now.
