  1. I'm having trouble finding photoetch for this style belt. Everything seems to be modern multi-point or stock car.
  2. Unfortunately the ones I want are white signatures on the black dashboard, hence the need for an ALPS printer. Thanks, John
  3. Does anyone make a 1/24 or1/25 white decal of Shelby's signature as often seen on the dashboard of Cobras? I know it's probably a licensing no-no issue, but I thought I'd ask as I don;t have access to an ALPS printer. John
  4. https://www.themodellingnews.com/2021/04/meng-downsizes-but-doesnt-dub-down.html#more Saw this this morning. Sounds interesting.
  5. Does anyone have experience with MCW enamel metallics? I am using their Guardsman Blue and wonder if it would be better over a silver coat or is white stynelres sufficient? Thanks, John
  6. I have had good luck with Gorilla brand super glue (not the classic Gorilla Glue) which comes with the blue cap. It has a long steel pin which keeps the hole open. It is a moderately slow setting Ca which give you time to locate parts.
  7. I would heat a piece of plastic rod or sprue, bend it to shape, wrap with appropriate wire (easier to work with than plastic rod), then paint with dilute putty or Mr Surfacer. Someone on Youtube doing a Ferrari P3 used threaded rod with Mr Surfacer.
  8. I have a few questions about Cobra CSX3021. in photo 12, what is the black tank on the firewall with the chrome cap just behind the air cleaner and where do the two transparent hoses on either end go? (it also shows in photo 14) In photo 14, what is the hose going into the firewall from the fuel log? Is it a fuel pressure sensor? In photo 14, what are the black "bottles" in the upper right at the corner of the port valve cover? I am a ship modeler doing my first car and am on a steep learning curve! Thanks, John
  9. The Cybermodeler website publishes a list of newly announced kits. Today I noticed on the list the following: Revell Ford GT40 LeMans 1968 1/24 7696 Sep21 I would love to hope that this is a new Mark IV, but I haven't heard of it anywhere else. Anyone have any into?
  10. I am curious where Tamiya Fine and Finishing compounds, Novus 2, and the proverbial "soft toothbrush" fit into the range of 1000 to 12,000 grit sandpapers. Anyone have any idea?
  11. Hi Guys, Building Fujimi Ford GT-40 MarkII '66 LeMans Kit RS-51 In removing the rear deck window (Part 8 ) I got a defect split into the visible area. If anyone built this kit or similar and used the alternate back window with the bubble in it and has part 8- the flat window- left over I would really like to have it! Thanks, John
  12. I bought this at my local Walmart yesterday. It smells like the old Future and when I dipped a windshield it behaved like the old Future. I don't know why S C Johnson thinks it is good marketing to keep changing the name of a good product, but for now this is The Right Stuff. Pledge 11182 Revive It Floor Gloss, 27 Ounce, Clear Transparent Liquid
  13. Thanks for the response. Found good directions under Tamiya tire decals. Worked great after wetting tire before putting on transfer.
