Great News from STAR Models!!!

Steve is discounting all of his Styrene kits 10% for the remainder of the month of August. This is a good chance for you to stock up on a 'Grail' or two for the colder weather coming up.

I have also up-dated the Hendrix and Flintstone galleries this past month adding about a hundred new cars between them. The R&R galleries will be done a bit later this month.

Thanks for visiting

For those of you who Bleche-Wite your own resins...

I recently had to replace a body for a customer that had accidentally stayed in the Bleche-Wite too long while we were dealing with hospital stays and convalescing. Evidently, while Bleche-Wite removes mold release agents in 24 hours, it also leaches at least some resins over longer periods causing a major thinning of parts. In the case of my customers body, a 49 Mercury Woody Wagon, it was toast and would have cracked at door and fender seams with the slightest pressure. Better I should discover this than you!

Just thought you'd like to know.

Happy Modeling

Here's something you road racers will like...

Steve at STAR Models just sent me a heads-up that he just got in a 52 Lincoln 2dr htp from R&R yesterday. These were some of the best handling cars ever produced by Detroit and won several road races in central and South America. A few moonshiners also used them because they didn't have to do much to them to beat the Feds on the back roads of the south.

Steve only got a couple of them so grab one quick.


Say Hi to Iggy and Seb...

brothers and creators of a great web site,  and its supporting blog all about detailing, dioramas, and scratch building. Inspired by their grandfather who owned a junkyard in Argentina, they're bringing a whole new batch of display ideas to the hobby. You're really going to enjoy keeping up with these two sites.

Here's a teaser photo...
