      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Saw this build up in the latest issue. Mercy I'd love a tutorial from Steve Perry. Exactly how did he make the sheet metal look so much like sheet metal? I'm always disappointed in how plastic most vintage funny cars interiors appear.

Steve (or someone else), How'd you do it?

I'm only guessing here...but it looks to me like he used real sheet metal! Probably thin aluminum sheet, like the stuff pie tins and turkey roasting pans a re made of.

Steve used alclad on thin sheet plastic. I think it said so in the article. The model looks even better in person.

His next model will blow minds when it is done. Sorry, I am sworn to secrecy about the subject!
