    RAT / ROD MODEL KIT BASH CHALLENGE

    I finished up a '34 Ford Pickup, and now I am starting a little T Altered, based on the funnycar chassis that was meant for the Vega I used in Jack Wagon. Sent from my BND-L24 using Tapatalk

    Oh wow! Thanks all! This was a great motivation to finish something before 2021 begins, and a bright spot in what was otherwise a pretty crummy year for many. Sent from my BND-L24 using Tapatalk

    Jack Wagon I put all the main assembles together, and totally forgot to put the windows in first. Hopefully, I can make that happen from the outside. Sent from my BND-L24 using Tapatalk

    Jack Wagon I couldn't shoot lacquer over the pearl I had messed up, so I am stuck waiting for the enamel purple to cure up before I can safely spray clear. I reassembled Jack temporarily to store him for a week or so... Sent from my BND-L24 using Tapatalk

    Jack Wag'n Pearl on the Vega body took a bad turn, so will need to let it sit a few days before I try to fix it. In the meantime, I made progress on Jack, himself. Sent from my BND-L24 using Tapatalk

    Jack Wag'n Sculpting more detail onto my "tire smoke" foundation today using Apoxie Sculpt two-part putty/clay. As it starts to cure, I can further blend with a brush dipped in water. Also got my new Anyway Whatever Podcast shirt, which goes right along with the monsters and rods theme. Sent...

    Best bet is either to scrape/sand paint and/or plating from mating surfaces before you glue, or very carefully use super (CA) glue instead. Just be aware that the fumes that come off of curing CA glue can leave a white residue on clear and lacquer-painted parts. I use a "crystal clear"...

    Jack Wag'n I've been building models for a LOT of years now, and the Roth/Newt/Mouse/Weird-Ohs were always some of my favorites, even though they were out of production, not to really start seeing reissues until I was in junior high in the early '80s. I spent lots of hours teaching myself to...
