Chris Greathouse #6 --- Question: What is the best way to mask off the bars (gold) while I spray the blue body color? Or what would be a good way to do this? Thanks!
15. October at 17:39:33
Chaz Gordon masking fluid. Do the bars first, then use some masking fluid after allowing a couple of days to cure on the bars. alternatively, hand paint the bars after, then lacquer the lot
15. October at 18:06:15
Chris Greathouse I plan on brushing the gold. But I don't want the darker blue undertone under the gold. Unfortunately I don't have liquid mask.
15. October at 18:17:25
Bob Hall Coat it in Clear Elmer's Glue, Let Dry,Paint will chip off when done.
15. October at 18:50:20
Munkyslut Don't worry about the dark blue, just lay a fresh coat of primer over it after masking off around the bars, which looks pretty easy with some thin Tamiya tape.
You can lay the gold on top soon as it dries using the same mask ;)
15. October at 18:52:49
Bob Hall Yeah ! What he said, I just put people behind bars,not paint them ! LOL HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA !!!!!!!!!!
15. October at 19:04:40
Chris Greathouse So re-primer and paint the gold bars after doing the blue? Thanks for that... Seems like a straight forward process.
15. October at 19:05:26
Chaz Gordon Alternatively, mask the round part of the bars, spray the blue, then hand paint the bars, the blue undertone will provide some further dimension and interest to the gold bars.

Michael Hickey You can also use PVA glue (wood glue) dries clear, cheap as chips and defiantly doesn't fog. Nice build by the way
23. March at 04:52:13
Chris Greathouse Will keep in mind, I bought some G-S cement on Nathans mention. But I know I have wood glue out on the toolbench, definitely cheap as chips (but not as tasty :P ) and thanks!

Chris Greathouse I was just following the destructions... :P It said red border, chrome grill... also the grill in the music video and all of google images is red with chrome.

Thanks guys!!

16. September at 23:25:35
Greg Baker The jury finds you not guilty by reasons of insanity... :) I stand corrected. Still looks odd, but now I blame ZZ Top, not you..

One other thing you might try is putting some silver chrome paint behind the clear bits of the headlights. That's my last nit to pick.

16. September at 23:56:07
Chris Greathouse Any tip for separating the lens from the bucket? I used BSI CA glue. I'd love to get in there and paint the inner bucket chrome.
17. September at 00:15:41
Greg Baker Depends on how risky you want to be... acetone usually loosens up CA glue... but it'll eat your paint as well as an appetiser. If you're REALLY careful and just dab some acetone (nail polish remover usually) around the edge you might be able to pry them out with a sharp knife. I'm not sure it's worth the risk though. You might just want to file that one away for "next time".
17. September at 01:13:13
Chris Greathouse Yeah... acetone doesn't sound fun for a finished car... Yikes. Thanks for the info though!

Silly question: Why do instruction booklets for cars always say to cut out license plates and glue them instead of applying them as waterslide decals? I apply them as waterslide a lot, seems fine to me... I'm just curious about this particular instruction, and why it may be important.

Thanks!
14. September at 23:04:26 Share
Nathan Dempsey Seems like a conspiracy to me. Maybe a government mind control plot...
15. September at 01:27:35

James C It may be to give them of a sense of depth to look more like the sheet of metal that they are pressed from?

15. September at 07:13:45
Model Ship World If the only decals would be license plates, it's more cost effective to just cut them out instead of the cost of producing decals with their limited production run numbers for such small things.

Chris Greathouse Thanks, and hello, nice to see a new face :) on a separate note... I was tired of my projects page looking like a goofed up mess by using standard pictures sizes as the project title image... so I made a set of images that are 1440x400, now the page looks alot nicer :D

Dominik Weitzer ...now I have this lady in the stash. Well built!
Are there some issues I have to watch at? In my opinion, it sits a little bit to high (highwheels :) ), that I'll change one mine.

Chris Greathouse @All, Thanks guys!!!!!

@Dominik, This was many cars ago, but I don't remember any issues. Although I'm not a perfectionist by any means. I usually just paint and build, then slam 'em together not really worrying about defects (unless it's a big issue). I may not be the best person to ask technical questions. I just do this for fun, and if it's not fun, it's not being done :D

Cheers!
If you remember, P.M. me when you start your project :D
1. September at 17:23:45
Dominik Weitzer I'm building for fun also Chris ;)
It should be an easy kit. If it wasn't, you kept it in mind :). Thanks!
And if I build mine, I keep you knowing.

1. August at 07:37:06
Chris Greathouse No not yet, but when I try to spray interiors, I'll get a fringe of color on the opposite side of the windows which is muck to try and clean up. Even masking the opposite side, I still get a fringe color sometimes.
1. August at 08:39:42
Bill Newcomer Are you talking about the headliner? the inside of the body? (Not the tub)
2. August at 04:22:24
Chris Greathouse Interior of cabin is Burnt Red.
2. August at 04:31:24
Bill Newcomer You need Parafilm to supplement your masking tape. Apply Parafilm to the perimeter of the window frames and lay masking tape over it near the edges. I sometimes use the plastic bags the sprue tree come in to bag the exterior. It keeps paint from sneaking around any masking tape gaps. (Less taping too.)

Chris Greathouse Thanks guys... No trailer... yet... maybe... Everytime I see a trailer I also see a car and go for that instead. :P
26. July at 17:34:21
Tim Heimer Do like Bill Newcomer and do a car trailer!

Ian Oostelbos Finished already!! Amazing!
29. July at 08:56:12
Chris Greathouse Thanks! And that's me working at half speed :P I'd work on the Volvo from morning until afternoon-ish, then I'd flip gears and work on my beads until night :P
29. July at 18:48:01
James C You've achieved a wonderful finish on this one Chris. Very nice work
29. July at 23:20:12
Chris Greathouse Thanks James! The spoilers gave me a real hard time with fitting, and staying attached.... but another truck I'm happy to have on my shelf.

Nothing of interest today... Sort of. I edited my model car log and made some notes, people seem to like that I'm a machine... heehee Anyways, I wanted to share what I use for my records, come one else might find it handy... and as always I'm a spaz, so if you have any questions an whatnot, let me know...

That was fun to type. Do you guys know what tardigrades are!? Microscopic little creatures that can stand insane, cold, heat, even the vacuum of space, they are called extremophiles... Wicked little critters.... They are also called water bears because they look like like bears :) AND THE REaLLY Cool thing.... is that they live in moss all around us... and all you need is a cheap $20 microscope and a little bit of patience... I present another hobby of mine.... waterbear hunting

File 20190122144107 has the clearest shot but here is the folder from a find about a week ago, a neighbor wanted to see one.

Bill Newcomer How old were you when you started building?
3. July at 03:46:45
Chris Greathouse March 12th of last year, the '40 Ford standard coupe was the first model I ever tried. :D :)
3. July at 04:08:18
Chris Greathouse The project number in the project & album titles are in order of completion since starting the hobby.
3. July at 04:11:04
Christian W Last year! Then take a look to the Lamborghini Diablo - great progress!

3. July at 04:12:20
Tim Heimer It is awesome to see how much people progress on here, but I have to say a lot of it is because the people here on this site.
3. July at 12:35:34
Holger Kranich This is handpainted? With the good ´ol hairy stick? Remakable! I only spray because my brush skills are bad! LOL :D
3. July at 13:36:01
Chris Greathouse Yeah, I made myself paint 10 cars with a brush before I spent the $$$ on the airbrush and hobby gear proper. I really wanted to make sure that the hobby was something that I would enjoy before dropping bank on supplies... I'm on project 43 and I still enjoy it. :D

Christian W I like the describtions in the pictures. Well done! The Corvette looks good to. I'm not such a fan of the panel lining with black. The contrast is to hard on my point of view. What's wrong with the right rear wheel?
2. July at 12:10:08
Tim Heimer Wow, I missed this one!
2. July at 12:18:46
Chris Greathouse I am learning more about panel lining, and am getting better at it. The right rear wheel wouldn't push onto the axle all the way. and thanks guys!
2. July at 17:24:59
Slavo Hazucha How nice, I always root for the yellow Corvette at LeMans! Great car, top build ...
2. July at 17:43:39
Chris Greathouse Thanks Slavo!
2. July at 17:45:29
Christian W Did you try to shorten the part of the inner rim, where the axle goes in? Or the axle itself? I didn't check my kit, how it is constructed.
2. July at 20:14:50
Chris Greathouse I didn't think about that at the time. I don't remember how it's constructed, the wheel is glued in.
2. July at 20:20:36
Christian W The positive effect: I have to take care of it when it comes to the day, my C7R goes on the workbench. I'll keep that in mind.

Also, shipment placed for Red X-7 for the VOLVO FH16 GLOBETROTTER XL (Italeri 3821, 1:24) and by strange coincidence the FORD GT Le Mans 2017 (Revell 85-4418, 1:24) fell into my cart at checkout :P :P Another decal madness of a vehicle coming in 3-5 days :D :D

Can anyone who knows the Vallejo brand line tell me the difference in Transparent Orange (Model Color/70.935) and Clear Orange (Model Color/70.956)?
13. June at 04:59:05 Share
13. June at 05:14:16
Chris Greathouse Wow, super classy site... The descriptions are the exact same. lol. The only difference is color and model info. I know the Transparent Orange is used for glass (blinkers etc...), but I've never used the Clear Orange. Don't know if it acts the same or like a standard opaque paint. I guess I'll just have to try them out.

Thanks much for trying mate!
