    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

Hello, my name is Brenan. I have been modeling for 5 years now, and I am 14 years old. I love to build models, mostly in 1/24 scale and mostly old cars and trucks. My most recent build is a 1971 Plymouth gtx. I tubbed it out and put slicks under it and painted it b5 blue.

Defiantly I am just a bit confused on how to upload them, and I am doing this on my iPhone. Can you help me upload them.

Welcome aboard Brenan.  Now if you click on the choose files ( it will show up when you start a reply) then find the picture you want to upload from your phone. That is  how I do it here on my computer. I can see it now until I click Submit Reply.

Welcome to our plastic playground Brenan.  You should check out the L.I.A.R.S. Club (Long Island Auto Replica Society model club.  They meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month at around 7 PM at the Henrietta Acampora Senior Center on Montauk Hwy. in Blue Point.  You'll enjoy it.

You're going to like it here..Like your 71 GTX. Color looks like a 999 Chrysler code..To black wash your grill, use Tamiya Smoke Acrylic brush paint..It fills in the gaps and any stuff that doesn't, use a Q-tip dipped in Windex to wipe it off(even after its dry)..Makes a huge difference..

Another tip, most car manufacturers didn't have white dashboards..You've done some nice clean work keep it up..Hope you didn't mind my tips...
