      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

What colors where?

I've recently been working on a Revell 1970 Boss 429. I just painted the frame the other day, but as with my other car, I want a detailed underside with more than just the body color. Does anyone have any pictures or suggestions in terms of what to do? Thanks.

Mike, most cars from the '70 had uni-body construction. For the most part the under side was a semi-flat black. However, the sides of the under body normally ended up the body color due to over spray when the main body was painted.

My personal choice for semi-flat black is Krylon rattle can. It produces a nice smooth surface. If you are using an air brush to paint the body, just haze the body color on the edges of the underframe. If you're using a rattle can tape off the major portion of the underframe and lightly spray the edges of the chassis.

Underneath color was always primer unless the customer ordered undercoating which was a light grey color sprayed on none-to-carefully.
