Revell Orange Crate 32 Sedan

it heats the metal and hardens it. straighten a paperclip, wrap it around a rod to form a coil spring, then heat it the same way and it will become a real spring capable of holding it's shape. if left untreated, it will not hold it's shape and will collapse under the weight of a model. be very careful as even 9v will render the item capable of burning skin, plastic and paper.

Great tip!  Thanks Curt!

In the meantime, I've been busy painting and Alclading in various different hues of metal - I still have a little work to do on the blower assembly before it's done but we're getting somewhere anyway...

I wish I could find something as good as Alclad that will stand up to a little handling - this seems very fragile and easily ruined but I'll maybe do a search of the forum and see what I can find!

Just done the wiring - some of it anyway - I made the magneto to better match the one in the reference pics I found (although this car ran a few different ones appartently) - pretty pleased with how it came out so far!

I got so frustrated trying to build this kit that I actually. twisted the chassis in half and thru it in the box.......after the little 9 year oldish hissy fit.....I went to the trash can and retrieved it. repaired the broken parts. and finished it up The rear end is real fidley. But I think you got this one handled. I painted teh frame black
