You are smashing out the muscle ......... are you a one man production line?

Tim, yeah those Grand Nationals & the last edition GN-X were properly fast from the factory & just basic mods got them deep in to the 12's
28. July, 09:52
Nigel Chapman
Hey Bob, that looks really smart. This has to be one of the most underrated 80's muscle cars. I'm going have to find the one lurking in my stash.
Were the FBI versions stock or modified ?
28. July, 22:01
Bob Hall
They were visually the same, just didn't have the speed regulator in it, so it was allowed to go faster than 125 MPH and had a special speedometer that read 145 MPH instead of the civilian dash that was only to 85 MPH, and it had a stiffer suspension.

Tim Heimer@Bob Hall
Bob you're not going to believe this! Well maybe you would! I picked up the AMT 73 mustang kit and opened the box to be disappointed again from round 2. The kit I picked up was, as I found out about 2-3 yrs older than the kit you built, even though the chart here says "just a rebox"! Get this, they gave me 2 sets of rims AND 1 teaser rim of the set I needed! Mother Fkrs! This company's crap I am so done with! No more AMT, MPC, Ertl, Lindberg, Ect. Got screwed on the Star trec kit, on the Kitt kit, The Fall guy truck, General Lee, 1/16th Trans am, and the list goes on! Thanks for letting me vent! LOL!

Amazingly the one they gave me has the logo! I'm trying to see if I can pull off making more of them for now, if not Ill have to hit you up for that set. I'll let you know how that goes. I also noticed on that cheesy kit that there is no mustang logo on the grill. WTF are they doing? So I'll have to see what I can do with that. Was the yellow you used on yours a Ford color?
26. July, 04:39

I just noticed, no side marker lights and mirrors as well? WOW, great kit!

OK, quick question to my Comrades that use PE parts on a frequent basis. I recently acquired a T-80 UD with a ton of PE parts and metal barrel, I need to know what is the most effective adhesive to use, as I assume that run of the mill model glue would not be the best choice. Thanks

Bill Newcomer
I use Testors window maker. It wicks under 100%, dries clear and does not fog glossy surfaces. Then Future clear over the whole model.
29. May, 06:09
Bob Hall
Mmmmm, Cool, Thanks Bill, I use that a lot. I'll give that a shot, sounds like it's more forgiving if mistakes are made.
29. May, 06:14
Daniel
Can only speak for cockpit PE where I mostly use PVA glue, same reasons as bill said canopies don't like CA - and it stays flexible, so if I glued little levers with ca they would skyrocket through the room after accidental touching, with pva they just lean and even slowly move back to the position they dried in. Drawback is slow drying under large parts- which is not always a drawback ;)

Regarding Soldering Irons I've gotten the best service from this one (currently unavailable but...)
on Amazon:
Tabiger Soldering Iron Kit 60W 110V-Adjustable Temperature Welding Soldering Iron with Tool Carry Case

It's about $17, it's adjustable and heats up super fast. Many of the non adjustables take forever to get hot and lose their heat the second you touch the brass. I use mine around the 200 mark (not sure what the 200 stands for).

Get yourself some good liquid flux, a little bottle of Tix will work best. Get small diameter solder; I bought a kit which had the solder, the flux and some anti-flux for $20ish.
Also on Amazon:
Tix Solder Kit - Jewelry Repair and Craft Soldering Kit

I went all out and got a rechargeable ultra-fine soldering iron and it gets used hardly ever, the infinitely less expensive one listed above does all my soldering work, good for household and automotive too. Save your $$$ and go with this plug in soldering iron, I think it will serve you well for many years.
29. May, 18:07
Bob Hall
Doesn't sound like a bad investment, I picked up a bunch of Soviet Armour kits from a guy (about 6 kits now) that were all loaded with PE extras, so I figure I'd try my hand it. Definitely will be a learning experience for sure, Thanks Al !
29. May, 18:34
Nigel
VMS CA is a little more resistant to 'popping':

Youtube Video

I also prefer solder for metal-on-metal. I've just got hold of some paste: flux and fine solder powder in one; hopefully it'll be easier for fine pieces. Gonna test it soon enough.

 
29. May, 19:36
Al
Cool. Also it's important whether CA or solder, to prep the surface by ensuring it's clean. I use some thinner, dry it off and for good measure will use a light sandpaper. Some PE comes with a coating on it.
