Bozzer Thanks for the link Bill. I'm actually building something similar. I'll get some pictures when it's done, but I have to figure out how to post them on here? Basically, my internal dimensions are 2' x 2' x 22" high. I wanted that big, so I can paint a trailer or 1/16 scale truck. I'm only using two fans, but I see a method in your madness. Them filters are hard to get here, so I've opted for Filter wool. I think that's what they call it anyway? Only thing is, it over hangs my work surface by around 5". My planned exhaust is 4" plastic pipe, straight outside, camouflaged by a bush. Lol, let's see how long that lasts?
3. April, 09:33
Rui S Very Nice booth.
I've lots of humbrol enamel paint., and the need for cleaning with white spirit... so i now need One booth urgently.
3. April, 21:12
Bill Newcomer Bozzer, your dimension seem large enough to give you some elbow room. What type of fans are you using?
4. April, 01:05
Bill Newcomer Rui, Thanks, I figured if I was going to go to all the trouble, I may as well make a nice one.
4. April, 01:41
Bozzer Bill, I'm gonna use PC fans. They're brushless and 12v, so they are quiet and reduce any risk of igniting any fumes, should any happen? The reason for the size is to allow me to place a built trailer in it. I can paint or even clear coat it, with easy access to the sides and top. I also plan on a revolving base, so I can turn the model, without touching it. I may make that motorised in the future, but for now it's just hand moved. I also wanted plenty of room to get my hands in. We all know what it's like, when you're trying to get into those awkward places? I'm also toying with the idea of a flip down shield, that covers halfway across the front opening. Once I get it in the cave, I'll try it out and see what happens? I have a few ideas, but not all will work, I'm sure. It's basically trial and error. I've put some pictures on my page, if you wanna see progress so far? I'll update it, as time goes by.
4. April, 05:09
Bill Newcomer Bozzer, With the 12v fans you can get a variable voltage power supply like I did. You can adjust the fan speed. The booth in my photos with the flip down shield was my inspiration. With the variable fan speed. I determined I did not need it.
4. April, 06:40
Bozzer Awesome information mate, thank you.

Bill Newcomer John and Dominik, Thank you, while I have never been a watch maker, I have always had an above average attention to detail problem. (That is why the cab is taking so long.)
1. April, 13:57
Chaz Gordon Just waiting for the promised slow down to kick in. We're all working from home and my biggest customer is directly linked to supporting the NHS, so we've been twice as busy as usual. Amazing work on that Chassis
1. April, 15:58
Bill Newcomer Chaz, Thank you. My job is semi-essential so we are still working in the field. I did have the day off today though. (Started my next project with the free time)
2. April, 06:36
Bryn Crandell I am essential as well. Working from home this week and back in the office next. I'll do this schedule until the DoD puts us back into normal status. My home office is in my hobby room so it is so tempting to play hookie from work and work on models. LOL
3. April, 15:23
Chaz Gordon I'm not actually supposed to be doing support cases, I'm supposed to be managing the team, but I have a caseload left over from helping my guys keep their heads above water when everyone suddenly wanted us to set up their IT for working remotely. When I get that cleared next week, I won't need a second keyboard, so I can put up a cutting mat on my desk where that goes and "Multi-task". I have a stack of trucks to renovate and build, so I'm tempted to bust one out.
4. April, 01:11
4. April, 01:40
Chris Greathouse ^ ditto! Build it! The T142M looks cool :)
4. April, 11:59
Chaz Gordon Hmmmm, That's tempting, the Chassis was started 25 years ago and needs some resto work, but I have an unstarted chassis from the Scania Wrecker, so I can cast a couple of replacement items.

Bob Hall That cabinet is Awesome ! Looking Great Bill !
17. May 2019, 08:09
Bill Newcomer Thank you Bob. I am a happy camper. With the new shelves I am only at about 35% capacity. The next step is finding (or making) some acrylic risers but I need to build a lot of semis first.
18. May 2019, 00:38
William O. Nicey, niceity, nice! The more models fill it, the better it gets! Glass cabinets and the only way to store/display models/collectibles, makes the collection look that much more awesome, and that always a good thing :). Cheers!
17. February, 03:01
John D Wow you've got some sweet rides here, looks like you're about due for another cabinet, its looks like you have window sills mastered, fine workmanship.
30. March, 05:43
Bozzer Nice work Bill. I think you're gonna need another one though buddy. These rigs take up some room! Did you ever have any issues with the top of the car hauler, not fitting correct and falling through? I didn't really explain that very well. I mean the moveable part, that allows you to let cars in the lower level? I have with mine. I tried a little heat, but it's not cured it. One side appears to be slightly warped.
30. March, 07:11
Bill Newcomer Bozzer, on both of them, the pivot points are miraculously still the wimpy plastic pins on the original parts. At the tails, I actually notched the ramps to lay properly on the lower level. The cylinders were installed but I left them disconnected at the top to prevent strain on the afore mentioned pins.
30. March, 23:33
Bozzer Thanks Bill. After I get the backlog of kits out of the way, I'm gonna take another look at it. I'm thinking about adding some kind of L shape strip, that slots in, when it's down? That should solve my issue, hopefully.
31. March, 02:34

Bozzer Just playing around with this kit myself, for another group build I'm in. Watch out for the placement of the steering box. The instructions aren't very clear on it. It also doesn't help, when the part is over moulded. Bugger had me stumped for a while. I may post some pictures when it's done, but it won't look anything like the box art. Got my kit from Ollie's, when they were selling them for 20 bucks a pop. I'll look forward to seeing what you do with this Bill.

10. October 2019, 11:10
Bozzer A piece of sprue in a cordless drill. The other end in a hole, in a vertical piece of wood. Slow speed and a small flat file, held at just the right tension. That's how I repair broken prop pins on my 1/72 planes.

30. June 2019, 02:22
Bill Newcomer Bob and Chris, thanks for the offers. What I need is the actual garage. I think I am going to get some 1/4" foamboard from Hobby Lobby. I think I will go for 4 bays as I have 3 lifts. But I am getting ahead of myself. I have 4 Chevelles, a Lowboy and an unstarted Freightliner to finish first.
30. June 2019, 07:26

30. June 2019, 08:01

Bill Newcomer
Has anyone purchased and used a 3D printer? I see that you can get started for around $200. I am thinking it would be awesome to make things like tires in the exact dimensions/brand I want. Maybe print out model bodies of cars that have never been kitted. 1977 Pontiac Can Am, 1974 Pontiac GTO, Kenworth T2000 etc.
15. August 2019, 03:45 Share
Chaz Gordon you'd need a dual extruder for bodies, need to run a bunch of support trees, don't worry, the software does that bit, then you dissolve the support filament in water I think. You can also get rubber filament for some machines. I've got my eye on a Flashforge Dual extruder at £600.
29. September 2019, 22:15

Dominik Weitzer If it has built some one, it is Always a good Referenz! Doesn't matter in that Point - if you want to build it, do it ;) . For own success.
I'm searching the web a lot to get insperations from existing/built models or dioramas. and if i take one for example, it will never come out the same like the one existing model i choosed.

Nathan Dempsey Nice save there Bill. I've actually used this technique on some damaged aircraft canopies as well. They were small enough to dip the entire part though.

Chris Greathouse I didn't see the captions, my bad! And I agree with Nathan, nice save!!
26. June 2019, 04:07
Bill Newcomer I suppose I could have dipped it. I have a 3/8" flat brush that lays it on pretty smooth.
26. June 2019, 05:36
Dominik Weitzer The same technique I used after the same desaster, but I didn't brushed future. I'll keep that in mind!
What colour you used for tainting?

1. September 2019, 14:33
Chaz Gordon I have a few 1/24 cars I restored in my teens that had painted glass, not quite so sophisticated then, I rubbed them down with 240 grit wet and dry, then brush painted a heavy coat of Humbrol varnish. They didn't look too bad, kind of gave them a factory bronze tint quality. I've seen the Future technique promoted for when there is a need to sand down defects in Aircraft canopies too
29. September 2019, 22:12
Spanjaard i believe dipping is better than painting, in regards to future and clear parts.... but yours looks good anyway.

Bozzer Bill, I'm in the UK buddy, but my Mrs is currently in the USA. I plan on building it after I return from there. I should be back here in the UK at the beginning of November. Just been trying to sort out my flights now and it's chaos, because of the Thomas Cook collapse. I never expected to see that happen! It's affected flights worldwide. I've been trying to figure out how your jig works, but I'm struggling. So the centre wheels are too high? Am I correct?
23. September 2019, 20:40
Chaz Gordon Now, that's where a 3D printer would come in handy. either to make a jig, or a whole new part to correct the issue. Now, just to convince the Missus, and find somewhere to put one.........
23. September 2019, 20:56
Bozzer Lol Chaz, that's where I landed lucky. My Mrs loves the hobby too, so when I get to the states full time, we are getting one. There's no point getting one in the UK because the voltage is different and I don't wanna risk breaking it in the move. Only I can find a woman who likes to build models, but on another continent lol
23. September 2019, 21:07
Chaz Gordon Nice. My other half is very Arty, does a lot of clay and painting, so at least we don't have any issues over the volume of space taken up by my Hobby. Although I have to hide some of the good stuff to stop it suddenly appearing in her tool box. Not to mention "Glittergate"
23. September 2019, 21:46
Bill Newcomer Bozzer, The way it works is you glue the front and rear axle housings to the leaf springs as you would normally. Pre-build the center axle housing. Use the metal rods to hold the two subassemblies in the same plane. Make spacers to fill in the gaps like I did or just goober glue it in place. Once dried/cured, slide the rods out and install the wheels. They should all now touch the ground.
24. September 2019, 04:19
Bozzer Awesome Bill, thanks for clearing that up. The I beam that you have cut and clamped, what was that for?
24. September 2019, 09:09
Bozzer Sorry Bill, I think ive sussed it! That's what you used to pack the gap, your shim?
24. September 2019, 09:12
Bill Newcomer Correct. The clamped pieces brought the flanges closer to be a spacer between the axle tube and the spring perch.

Tim Heimer Well, that's the brand, I've only seen the hot dog shaped ones. I've learned something new! LOL
22. August 2019, 17:53
Bill Newcomer You are right. Cherry Bomb mufflers were the inspiration. But now it is kind of a signature detail that brighten ups the boring bottom of the car.
23. August 2019, 01:30
Bill Newcomer Add another Chevelle to the DONE column. I am pretty happy with how this one turned out. Probably my BEST paint job EVER.

12. September 2019, 08:33

The paint looks beautiful in the daylight & the big Rat looks perfect.
Wheels & stance are up to your usual high standards ;)
7. September 2019, 09:54
Bill Newcomer Thank you for the compliments. However, I cannot take credit for the paint as it was pre-painted.

7. September 2019, 17:38
Neuling Sehr schönes Automobil!
7. September 2019, 18:34
Bill Newcomer James, I am afraid I cannot take credit for the wheel arches either. Those also came pre-painted. Wheel arches are trimmed chrome in most of my builds. Over the years I have progressed from silver enamel to silver Sharpie to BMF and now Molotow chrome. BMF looks the best but Molotow is easier.
7. September 2019, 20:32
Slavo Hazucha Finished in style - the exterior pics look great, good choice of light conditions for the pics too!

28. March 2019, 06:22 Share
Bill Newcomer With the lowboy trailer and Chevelles nearing completion, I unsealed both of my White-Freightliner kits. I was brainstorming how to kitbash the needed rims, tires axles with the inventory of kits I have. I think I have a plan. I am a little disappointed with the fact that the frame rails for the day cab version are not included. I am guessing one is supposed to shorten the DD frame. The kit(s) come with inline 6 cylinder engines. I am contemplating swapping in the V8 from the Ford Coca Cola truck I am parting out. What do you think?
30. August 2019, 05:54
Bill Newcomer Next up on the bench...
30. August 2019, 06:34
Munkyslut Hi Bill, I'd go for the V8, to be honest only because I thought that's what they had in them.
Were they 2 stroke Detroit Diesels?
30. August 2019, 07:17
Bill Newcomer I do not know about the 2 stroke but I think the kit(s) have 6 cylinder Cummings diesels.
30. August 2019, 07:18
Bill Newcomer Just placed my order from Auslowe. I will now be able to convert to rectangular head lights. YAY
5. September 2019, 07:34
Munkyslut I'm confused already Bill!

5. September 2019, 10:15

Bill Newcomer Thanks. I am still fine tuning the bodies. After that I have to wait for low humidity to spray.
25. March 2019, 08:03
Tim Heimer Looking good Bill! And I thought I was nuts doing 4 1/16 scales at the same time! LOL!
25. July 2019, 15:12
Bill Newcomer Tim, Thanks. I have made some progress and actually have the red one done. The black one only needs wheels and tires. The blue one is also nearly finished. The brown one is waiting on me to print the decals for the valve covers to match my buddy's. The El Camino is in limbo. I have been completely exhausting myself over the last 2 months painting my house and custom fitting the interior of my work van. I think about building frequently but just do not have the energy after work.
26. July 2019, 03:27
Tim Heimer Bill, we've all been there. Take your time.
26. July 2019, 12:49
Bill Newcomer Making final approach on the Chevelles. The black one only needs the wheels and tires glued on, both the blue and brown ones got their rear bumpers attached. Next is chassis for blue and valve cover decals for the brown.
28. August 2019, 07:32
Munkyslut You've been busy Bill!!!! A house repaint AND a van kitting out? I've broken out in a sweat just thinking about it.....
Looking forward to the Chevy quintet, nothing makes a Mopar Guy pay attention like an SS454 ;)
BMW think they're clever squeezing 430 horses out of their latest M3, Chevy we're knocking out 450 horses nearly 50 years ago.....
28. August 2019, 08:52
Bill Newcomer Thanks buddy. Both of those major projects are nearly complete. On the HP front, lots of cubic inches helps. They fact that they cam make over 1000hp from a 4 cylinder boggles the mind.

29. June 2019, 19:26
Munkyslut That's very nice, hockey stripes and AAR stripes are so much nicer than billboards, they are just too big & blocky for me, although white ones tend to look ok, especially on B5 blue.
The stance is spot on, you got that just perfect!
Front end looks good, did you have to do work?
29. June 2019, 20:34
Bill Newcomer I agree on the billboard decals. It is just TOO much. I did attempt them because that is what a '71 is SUPPOSED to have. Read the description for info about the hockey stick decals and the grille.

24. June 2019, 06:25
Chris Greathouse Wow.. they look good! How many projects do you have going one at once?
24. June 2019, 06:31
Bill Newcomer By priority, The lowboy trailer, (2) 70 Chevelles, (2) 72 Chevelles, (1) struggling 70 El Camino. The doubles trailer is open to only do the wheels and tires. Next up will be a White Freightliner COE converted to triple drive then my garage diorama. But not until the 4 Chevelles are done. I have a policy of, if a part is painted one day it is NOT glued the same day and, if two parts are glued together one day they are not touched until the next day. ie it takes a MINIMUM of 4 days to glue on car tires.
24. June 2019, 07:48

I was relieved to see I share the same issue with you, the yellow hood stripe is a different shade of yellow and has that "just doesn't like right" vibe, but still looks great ! The Buick was probably the most over looked and forgotten of the Muscle cars ! Awesome build Bill !
2. May 2019, 05:47
Bill Newcomer Thanks Robert. I nailed the stance on this one. I just wish I had the talent to paint the headlight frames body color yellow.

Bob Hall I did paint mine with a fine tip brush, thinned down spray paint over the chrome.
2. May 2019, 06:16

Allan Gage I have my best luck on headlight surrounds with liquid mask (Elmer's glue) brush it on thick two or three coats, let it dry to clear and happiness. As an added bonus the surface tension seems to pull the liquid to the nearest edge making pretty nice lines and it comes off in one piece.

Bill Newcomer Nigel, Thanks. When I built it they were the only ones available for what I was attempting. They have kind of grown on me.

2. May 2019, 06:16
Bob Hall Retired from the Army, now a Trooper.

Bill Newcomer As in fully employed Trooper? (explains the guns)
2. May 2019, 06:19
Bob Hall Yes, But I'm From Texas ! That explains the guns ! LOL !

Chris Greathouse Damn... I'ma need to see some permits there :P That's cool though... and I wish we had a flea market in our area that's be cool if someone was selling cheap plastic... and Bill Oh my god, I know what you mean by sticker shock.... I started the hobby using a new Credit Card set for just this hobby in March of last year, since then it's been about $3700 ($1150 on 56 kits)...

Nigel Chapman I'm with Robert on the multiple hobbies. When I was younger I was collecting Matchbox diecasts, 1 87 scale model trucks and kits from Europe and 1 25 kits besides music cd's and books!!
Then there was the small fortune I spent buying film and developing pictures (who remembers doing that?).
Two boys and one divorce later I now have some money to spend but only on the 1 25 kits.
Searching for kits is part of the fun so I'm always on the look out at car, semi-truck and vintage vehicle shows, car boot sales, jumble sales even model railway shows.
2. May 2019, 15:15
Bill Newcomer For me it has been LHS, ebay and the occasional model show (best variety and bargains) Walmart was good when they used to sell them. Never had the free time for flea markets. 50-60 hour weeks during the summer and car shows.

Bob Hall I spay it over the decals and use it as a sealant, doesn't hurt them at all.
2. May 2019, 06:25
Bill Newcomer That is good to know. Have you tried on any custom decals you have printed?
2. May 2019, 06:26
Bob Hall yes, and Revell and AMT decals. never had an issue ever.
2. May 2019, 06:28
Bill Newcomer OK thanks.

Bob Hall Go's on smooth and you can't see the decal edge lines.
2. May 2019, 06:37
Bill Newcomer Likely to keep them from drying out and flaking off too.
2. May 2019, 06:41
Bob Hall Exactly what I was going for, I remember as a kid when the car would get old and that would happen and it looked like crap. This stuff is a god send in my eyes !

Bill Newcomer This is my Hurst Olds. I have a classmate from grade school who eventually owned one of these beauties.

Treehugger Interesting paint job. :) I like it. Sort of a 70's vibe to it I would think.
27. April 2019, 09:02
Munkyslut That's excellent! Amazing patience to get those wheels right, you nailed it perfectly though!
Hurst cars are just so cool
27. April 2019, 09:49
Bill Newcomer Munkyslut, I am a really big fan of the Hurst car too. I have at least 2 more in the pipeline.
27. April 2019, 16:41
Cliff Jones That looks just swell, Bill. Congratulations!
27. April 2019, 17:57
Bill Newcomer Thanks Cliff. It was a very quality kit.
27. April 2019, 18:03

Bob Hall Man! That's one Beautiful Beast !
25. April 2019, 06:37
Bill Newcomer My computer makes it look red-ish. The color is actually Testors Competition Orange. Which is about the same color as the fruit.

Mike Thomas "Came out pretty well" he says. That is an understatement, my friend. Looks awesome!

GRRRRR!!!! I just opened my SEALED AMT 1:25 Doubles trailer kit. I bought the kit in 2008 when it was reissued. After a quick inventory, they shorted me one axle worth of rims. I have enough parts to build 2 dollies but not enough rims to build even one. (I do have enough tires and axles and brake drums. Just not the rims). Does any one have any 1:25 AMT rims to spare? I do not have enough of a parts box to make up the deficit. Chrome would be nice but absolutely necessary. Anyone?
21. April 2019, 03:42 Share
Treehugger Could you scratch build it with styrene? Not sure what these parts look like.
21. April 2019, 08:12
Augie Or with some putty make a mould ?
21. April 2019, 09:36
Bill Newcomer Neither would give adequate results based on my skill and/or resources. I will likely rob some from another kit until I have some extras.
