    Contest Q&A

    I understand there's a formula of some sort for the final photos and I can't seem to find it. How many and what angles? Or is it only restricted to a certain number? I seem to recall six. I'd like to lock this critter up today. Three months is a long time on one build. Dale

    Yes! Especially the last photo. I expect it to kick over and spit nitro fumes or something. Dale

    '56 T-Bird Kit Bash Gasser

    Hi, all. I’ve been away from the computer but have been working to finish up my kit and it’s about ready for that place where models go to live or die - the paint shop - so here’s where I am. The size of the motor seemed to dominate the build as things started to come together. I built a...

    1/25 1937 Ford Pickup

    I know. Trying to post the image direct link into this thread resulted in an instantaneous Account Suspended notice that lasted for around an hour. I guessed members are banned from posting images in contest wip threads. Im good with that. Dale

    1/25 1937 Ford Pickup

    I tried posting a photo of my balsa bed and it suspended my account, so I guess that tripped some auto lock-out in the site. Use your imagination or try this link: http://s1298.photobucket.com/user/ScaleDale/media/Truck_zps5bb77589.jpg.html?sort=2&o=48 Dale

    1/25 1937 Ford Pickup

    Looks good so far. Ditto to what Scott said about those tires. Maybe get a set of colored pencils from a craft store and use the white one on the tires and spray it with a dull coat if it looks OK. Wash it off and start over if not. When I built this kit the one thing I couldn't stand was the...

    '56 T-Bird Kit Bash Gasser

    I’m going to be away from my shop for the next week, so I wanted to get my engine finished and detailed. I’ve never tried to do this at this level of complexity and I think I did a good job. The wiring is Memory Thread from Michael’s, the big craft store here in the US. It’s copper wire...

    My automotive entry: 1949 Mercury

    Slick paint work on the motor. Is that all airbrushed? If so, what paint? It's super smooth. Dale

    Yes it is. It even looks out of scale 1:1 ;D And thanks for the comments. Dale

    '56 T-Bird Kit Bash Gasser

    Happy holiday if you celebrate today in your part of the world or in your particular faith. I wanted to complete my first month of work on this project with a free standing chassis and motor and was able to get that in. Coming up with motor mounts was difficult, so I just scratched together...

    JMD - Sikh Bust - 150 mm

    Martinez: The photos are of very high quality and really help to showcase the level of quality in your work. Photography is my other bad habit, so may I ask what equipment you used to take the shots? Looks like studio lighting to me, too, or at least a good backdrop. Overall, this is most...

    Thanks. It's finally starting to look like a race car. Dale

    '56 T-Bird Kit Bash Gasser

    Things got a little nuts down in the shop this week. I got the frame set and leveled and comped it together with the body and it set to high for my taste so I redid the suspension to lower it. It was still to high so I took my razor saw and knife to it and cut a 4mm channel the length of the...

    Painting section...HOW TO?!?!

    I have a number of different types of thinners for enamels, acrylics and lacquers and if I'm not sure what base a paint is I test it before doing anything with it. I put a drop of the paint in question in each of the thinners to see how it reacts. If it gums up in the enamel thinner then it's...

    '56 T-Bird Kit Bash Gasser

    Thanks for the comments. I messed with Don Yost's cut enamel thing when I painted the undercarriage this morning and the result is a bit on the outrageous side. Screaming bloody red. I'll post a pic when it sets up a bit. Dale

    BIG RIG RAT

    Something like this would probably be a patchwork of parts. Some newer and in different colors and orders of decay than others. The odds of it being evenly destroyed are nil. Dale

    '56 T-Bird Kit Bash Gasser

    Time for an update on my build. I have been working on the engine and doing a lot of research this week. I decided to add some contemporary features to this car like a front spoiler since the NHRA doesn't run the old gas class anymore. This car would probably be in the Super Gas or Pro Modified...
