This is the first kit I ever gave up on. So poorly manufactured. The majority of the parts are molded in black, including the engine, which needs to be red. There was so much flash on the parts that it was literally difficult to tell where the actual pieces started so as the properly cut it off. And the worst part, the part that finally got me to give up, was the front suspension. Made up of a dozen or so long thin parts with all the structural integrity of wet noodles. and after those dozen delicate parts are finally put together, what i the next step? To try to squeeze the front wheels onto the "axle". Even trying to do this very gently pretty much exploded the entire suspension, breaking pieces in half and while I maybe could have salvaged it, this kit is of such poor quality that if didn't deserve it. For anyone that wants to make this kit, and doesn't mind the black molding (which IS good most of the time) and excess flash on the sprues, do yourself a favor, and when it comes to the front suspension, put the tires on the axle first, while you can just push them on directly. It may make it a little more difficult to add in the rest of the suspension pieces, but hopefully you will have an easier time of things than I did.

Bob Hall Yes, You will run into that with a lot of the Monogram kits, most of the molds are 40-50 years old so it makes for lots of flash. A good white primer ( I prefer Tamiya, it's lighter and thinner) will take care of any "Molded in color" issues you may encounter and resolve most problems with your coloring.

Mike Duncan I managed to deal with the black molding using multiple thin coats of red, and I think I did a pretty good job of slicing away most of the excess plastic. It really was the silliness of the order for the front suspension that broke both my model and my will.

Tim Heimer Welcome to Scalenuts as I call it. Nice start with this here! Feel free to ask questions, show your skills and have fun. It's a pretty good support group here, you have your car guys, boat guys, airplane nuts, and military guys all with different knowledge and skills.

Mike Duncan I'm definitely a car and truck guy. Right now the thing I really need to find some good tutorials for is properly using tape to paint a selected area. Whenever I try to do it, the paint always oozes through anyways.
29. January at 20:02:09
Bozzer Welcome fella. I recommend that you check out Chris Greathouse and his Super Boss build. Man, that's been epic!

JD Don't forget us sci-fi guys! Duncan, check out Chris's taping adventures...He just got back from Mordor, and the Mt. Doom of masking!

JD Looks like you may have to color match it yourself, friend. Close enough is good enough, I always say (actually it's the first time)
24. January at 02:36:10
Bob Hall always try the local car dealer, but that was never a factory GM color.
24. January at 02:45:42
JD Yeah, it's a custom truck...
24. January at 02:47:19
Bob Hall Ford,BMW and Toyota all had a variant of an "Apricot Metallic" but not General Motors. Google paint chip cards through the years and find a close match and order the paint code from a paint maker. I've Done it a million times on my cars.

I have a model in the queue where one of the colors required is "Apricot Metallic" for the main body. For the life of me I am unable to find any such color. Does anyone have any ideas for an equivalent. Kit in question is Revell '41 Chevy Pickup 2 'n 1. 85-7202
15. January at 04:35:58 Share
15. January at 07:16:57
Mike Duncan Pretty close, but I little more reddish I believe.
