@all: How do I rotate a picture in an excisting album ? And can I delete a picture without deleting the whole album? THX for infos

Right corner over the Album picture - hit "Manage"

In Manage, hit "Advanced options" = rotation
Each picture should also have a "trash bin" on the right side = delete that specific picture

All described as seen on PC/chrome browser...

& nice Chaser, too... ;)Y

Cool to see that kit built! The cover of the box couldn't catch my interesst at anytime. Yours looking great. The lowered suspension makes a lot to it.

Stephan H.
Thx Christian. I also do not like these box covers showing pictures of a finished OOB model, they look like "cheap toy" to me. I prefer real pictures or these vintage drawings. The suspension is OOB, if I remember correctly. This model was my first attempt to apply a black wash to the grille, being happy with easy application and the result.

The box art in the 2000 were not that nice. I agree with the toy-look. I'm so glad, they (eg. Round2) go back to the vintage box art.

Stephan H.
Exactly! E.g. the allison thunderland cover, which fits such an "old" car way better.

Great work, Stephan.

Outstanding in every way and totally a kick to look at... congratulations .... suggestion, simply tighten up the radio wires, which are loose for some reason and would not be even in this tough environment ...and reshoot.

Seriously ...its excellent, just needs a tweak.
22. November 2020, 20:25
Stephan H.
Thanks mate. As the builder I am aware of more than one tweak :) . The loose wires are result of my mistake of gueling the wire at the tail rudder with clear fix as well as the little support rods on top of the wing directly on the last paint layer, i.e. the bonding is very weak. a clever one would have drilled holes in the wings and added a little lug/grommet at the rudder.

I have never seen this kit. You have made something quite unique out of it. The only suggestion I would have is to find some really skinny front tires to complete the Funny Car vibe. I would be happy to send you a pair if you do not have any in your stash.
29. August 2020, 02:22
Stephan H.
Hi Bill. Thanks for the offer. I do have at least one pair of skinnys somewhere but I don't really like the look of them on cars with "regular" bodys, even though I am fully aware of their functional purpose. They look great on top fuel dragsters.
I now try to sell you a story why using the wrong wheels: This is the street set of wheels since the driver is a big poser and likes to drives his 1400hp monster to the drag strip showing off at every traffic light :)

while it is Fitting horrible, it came out very good. some paint dots on the sidemarker perhaps ;)
25. August 2020, 05:49

@Mathijs: No the rims are aftermarked. I believe it was Aoshima but not sure.
@Dominik: Good point about the sidemarker. I should have sanded them away for a cleaner shape :P I will not touch it right now.

If you are a man/woman/undecided with a sense of aesthetic you have to love this shape ;)

Wow! You've just raised the bar for automotive paint finishes
18. August 2020, 21:22
Stephan H.
Thanks mate but thats far too kind. Look at the last picture. I got a lot to learn. But buying that zero paints clear, although toxic as hell and not the cheapest was totally worth it.
18. August 2020, 21:29
Mere blemishes mate, the fact you got 90% of it looking bloody amazing at first try is a result in my book ;)
Learn every time ......
18. August 2020, 21:57
Stephan H.
I am not saying that I´m not happy with the overall result. But as the builder you know where to look for flaws. And now that it´s done, I regret not wiring/plumbing the engine a bit. Next time :)

Way cool result. Keep up the good work.

THX Bill.

I needed to add some daylight pictures since my camera was not able to focus my favourite decals (pic #28) at night/LED lights. Very subtle and sharp printed. This picture also shows an issue with the decal thickness: The clear part of the rear window has bolts/screw heads molded. I thought I could just put the frame decal on top and apply decal softener as needed. That did not work out completely. I might be a better idea to sand the screw heads away before using the decal.

Rod -
Nice build :) I only have one model in my cabinet with 2k clear on it, and it is by far the shiniest of the collection. Extreme toxicity bothers me, but the finish is incredible.
