  1. GM also used a color on the SSR called Aqua Blur (one word or two, I don't remember). Looks strikingly similar. Andy
  2. Thanks for the final up-date. I was wondering if you finished it or through it away. I like your version a whole lot better than the box-art. One day I may actually build mine. It certainly will be somewhere between your vision and the box-art. Great job! Andy
  3. Great stuff! I have really enjoyed your build. And like someone else said, I, too was timid about using Model Master Wet Look. Me thinks it's a go now. You may have said, but what brand of black did you use? Andy
  4. Nice work on the stance. In the first photo, the stance was not appealing to me. I am looking forward to seeing the completed model and I hope I see it in person at some point. I have always loved those sedan deliveries. In fact, I have a couple in my stash. Andy
  5. Once again, Revell mislabeled a kit. That's actually a sedan delivery. Great looking build! Andy

    New laser cut wood parts for autos

    After constructing wooden beds for a couple of flatbeds, all I can say is wow that's cool. When are you going to scale up to 1/16 (think Minicraft Fords)? Andy

    WWI armor and vehicles

    Yes, for the most part. I had 4 days of rain in Port Angeles and a heatwave in Seattle. This was the end of June (rain) and beginning of July (heatwave). Olympic National Park was completely fogged in the day I visited. Even with bad weather at times, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. You can't control the weather! And, no use complaining. Andy Beautiful country!

    Hi Wilky, Update: I received a Squadron flyer today and on page 27 they list a RPM 1/72 Mack tanker. Andy

    Wilky, Sorry for the delayed reply. I've been out of town. I bought the RPM kits through Squadron. They were not listed in the last flyer I received, but they may still have them in the warehouse. I have bought the Monogram trucks over the last decade as they were released as part of the SSP program. The last issue was a tanker and I bought that on vacation last year in Tacoma Wa. It was not to be found around here. There were also a dump truck, and log truck released. I found an original issue stake-bed (1973) in Atlanta at a show some years ago. Hope this helps. Happy hunting, Andy

    I have built 2 of the 1/72 RPM Mack trucks and am working on my 3rd. I will build the other 3 that I know of. They are a PITA but look very good when completed. They average over 100 parts with the tanker coming in at 120. MMK makes a 1/35 scale version of the Mack (again WWI). This is resin with photoetch. I will start it after the 1/72's. Once I complete it, I plan on doing 4 or 5 of the 1/24 Monogram Macks. I love the old Macks. Andy

    Spray Booth Design/help...

    http://www.briansmodelcars.com/tutorials/t...3&CurPage=1 I built mine from the info on this web-site. This was my 3rd attempt and I am finally satisfied with my spray booth. Andy

    Good results with one product. That was all I was trying to get across. Obviously, different people will have different results and thus must make a decision based on their experience. Respectfully, Andy

    I must strongly disagree with the statement " it is no good for model use". I have been using 3M fine line tape for over ten years and have had nothing but good results. It does take some patience and practice to get the hang of manuevoring the tape around curves. I have used it on 1/25th auto projects as well as on ships. I first used it on full size cars many years ago and the transition from full size to models was not to difficult for me. It is available from your local auto jobber. I'm not sure what color you would call what I have; it does seem to have a greenish hue. It is true that it was designed for the 1:1 auto world, but we as modelers have used many things designed for other purposes. The mean thing is through experimentation you can find something that you like. As I said before, I used Tamiya tape for the first time and was impressed with it. I would have no problem using it for demarcation between straight lines. For a sample of my work visit ecpmod.com . Look under members and click on the name. Follow the link to my page. Andy Fulcher

    I used Tamiya tape on my last project and I was very pleased. I need notice, and perhaps it was the width, that I had a problem with "turning the tape" i. e. making a curve. For this I highly recommend 3M fine line. The widths I use are 1/4", 1/8" and 1/16". The tape provides a fine line and it will also stretch which proves useful when trying to make a curved line. Andy
