  1. Yep! Funny thing was, I was in the character figures section and found it as a "buy it now".
  2. I lucked into a 1/24 Airfix Aston Martin 007 kit. She's a little gluebombed, but looks to be pretty complete. Got it for $29.
  3. For leaf springs, I typically paint them with a mix of medium grey and steel. Enough to make them metallic looking, but not straight steel like the exhaust. The chassis plate I'll usually do primer edged with with the body color. On 50's cars, that's usually a red oxide primer, newer cars are usually grey primer, then mist the edges with the body color. Once it's all dry I'll do a wash of black to make the details stand out and make it look a little dingy. Exhaust usually gets a wash of rust and then pick out the clamps in bright silver.
  4. Got a Jo-Han 1964 Cadillac DeVille coupe. The body is decent (vent windows are broken, but I can fix that). Got the body, chassis plate and hood. Also picked up a front bumper. I'll piece her together as I go. Got it for $25.
  5. Just had to "park" one. Heller Porsche 917K. There's no positive ways to locate and attach some of the parts, especially the spindly little components of the frame and suspension.
  6. I usually clamp the clear pieces in place and then apply Testors clear parts adhesive with a brush, thinned a little so it flows under the part.
  7. I've managed to luck into a few. Picked up a Chrysler Turbine, 31 Cadillac Town Car, S/C Rambler and a 1962 Chrysler 300 convertible. The only one that needs real TLC is the Caddy.
  8. I really like the shape of this. Great salvage work!
  9. I almost always buy kits for subject matter, but kit price also tends to be a factor. Sometimes I don't have the cash to play with sometimes so I'll try to get something cheap. I tend to stick with cars mostly, but I've got a few starships and some anime girls. Box art doesn't matter as much as kit accuracy and quality. I'm perfectly happy buying a kit without a box. So far the only thing I dont care for on model building is painting the body. I dont have a set place to paint the body or set up an airbrush and I suck at spray painting, so I end up having to strip them pretty often.
