    Hey Miwi,

    Sweet truck. I saw that concept drawing and thought it was nuts, cool to see someone trying to bring it to life. What are you doing with the rest of the Ruff? Would you maybe be interested in getting rid of it?

  9. Quick question for you pro painters. I'm doing an AMT 53 ford Custom truck and want to paint some scallops or a Watson style job, but im not sure how to achieve that because most masking tapes are waaay to thick to make outlines. Thanks

    MannyK: Best thing I have found is 'Parafilm'. Google it. The late Bud Anderson ("The Kat from AMT") introed me to this stuff, its intended purpose was in the medical field. Popular demand brought it into the hobby shops back in 1990s...It's a plastic film that you stick onto finished paint, then cut your flames or scallops outline with a sharp #11 X-Acto blade. Wait...Not exactly so.

    Internet search (or order from Penn Valley Hobbies) Testors #11 black blades. Really sharp!
    Alternative is a leather strop for your X-Acto, but you've GOT to have them sharp.
    I use medical scalpels, for the fine scallop work...flames also require some short radii on the curves, hence the tiny scalpel blades. Parafilm is about .002" thick, is easy to stretch, smooth, and cut.
    You'll never use another masking method.

    This cool ongoing thread has gotten me to get some unfinished projects back out!
    Now I've got to overcome this 'glitch' I have with the AT&T hookup. Sending attached pics is some kind of esoterica...my wife is going to fix it, so I guess...stay tuned.

    Dean... I haven't been thru ALL the pages, but with a first class piece of Midget Equipment like this, I was fully expecting a model by you of your old '29 Roadster Pickup!
    The Revell kit actually has nearly all of your RECIPE in the kit!
    Glad to see your work.
    Some of mine's comin'...

  13. Mike, if you go back a little farther, you'll see I didn't do the old red RPU, but I did this one.

  14. So I'll be spraying on the scallops over an already painted area? Should I sand that area down or paint right over it

    Good Grief, Dean! I'm embarrassed...
    I read the long article by the present owner of the famous red Lowe R/P., was a little 'nostalgic'...
    Don't ever quit.
    Just beautiful.

    In 1962, my pal Johnny Dugan built a '57 Chevy Bel Air model, (AMT or Revell? can't remember)
    Entered it in the Town & Country model show in San Jose, the model won all awards.
    Flawless build, as is your yellow '57. Amazing.
