  3. Hello there to all car modelers thinking about changing my modeling interest to cars but would like to know before I do how do you car guys and gals deal with the chrome parts on the sprues, once removed there will be a spot or other areas that will need to be cleaned up and will show bare plastic, my questions do you remove/ or strip all the chrome then clean up the imperfections like mold lines etc. and then re-chrome the parts if so which is the best re-chrome paint, case in point the revell T-bucket which has a lot of chrome in the kit how to go about building that kit the right way, I would appreciate any help in that area, P.S. I know Donn Yost is a very car modeler and tried to ask him the same questions but he will help me unless he soo busy that he no time to reply back to me thank you Ronald

  5. Hello there I was watching a you tube modeler build a Tamiya 1/48 scale Tomcat and notice he build the engines in two different ways one engine was wide open and the other almost closed since I do not know to much about jets or modeling them is that the correct way to model the engines, forgive me for asking but having the engines look different looks funny If I was modeling a jet I would have the engines the same accurate or not Ronald
