NEW ITEMS

 

Jack Ditmars'
Lil' SCREAMER
1/25 decals




#SC-001 ....... $10.00

These new decals were professionally designed & printed for Speed City !
They have every sponsor decal for almost every version of the Lil' Screamer.

Decals should be sprayed with a couple light coats of clear gloss lacquer before applying.

After applying all the blue fade-away decals, spray with a dust of white pearl,
this will give the apperance of custom pearl painted fade-away's,
then add the sponsor decals of your choice and top coat with gloss clear.

HERE ARE SOME TIPS TO HELP WITH YOUR BUILD

* Use "Super Glue" to glue all resin parts together....... even when gluing resin to plastic.

* We recommend using: LOCTITE Precision Max or Professional SUPER GLUE
( the regular super glue has a new weak formula )

* Soak all resin parts in CASTROL SUPER CLEAN, WESTLEY'S BLEACH WHITE or EASY-OFF OVEN CLEANER (heavy duty)
Scrub with an old tooth brush and rinse with soap & water.

* Use a good automotive primer before painting, we recommend using Plasti-Coat sandable primer.

* Use ALCLAD II LACQUER CHROME #ALC107 to air brush simulated chrome on Bumpers, Taillights, Grills, Etc.
(Now available in a rattle can #ALC 5114)

* Use ALCLAD II LACQUER POLISHED ALUMINUM #ALC106 to airbrush Interior Tubs, Firewall's, Etc.

* To get a "polished aluminum" look without using an air brush....
Paint with MODEL MASTER Aluminum Plate Buffing Metalizer (now in rattle can) #1451 ......*No priming necessary *

* I've also had great results with CHROME SPRAY PAINT to get a polished aluminum look.
(You can handle the parts after they've been painted, but just don't rub them or it will leave a scratched look).
Works great on Interior Tubs, Firewall's, Etc.

* To have actual chrome plated parts, send parts to CHROME TECH USA

* FOR WINDOW GLASS........ Use .020 CLEAR or TINTED PLASTIC SHEET, found at hobby & craft stores.


 

HOW TO MAKE WINDOW GLASS FOR MODEL CARS

Use masking tape to cover window, then trace border of window with a pencil.

Place tape (with pencil lines) on .020 Clear Plastic Sheet, cut out tracing with scissors, remove tape,
place the clear window inside body. Use small drops of Super Glue (use a tooth pick) to set the window.
* Use Accelerator on separate tooth pick for faster dry time *
Then add a bead of Super Glue around the all edges........ its that easy !

You may never go back to kit glass again !?!

If your hobby store doesn't carry Clear Plastic Sheet, go here to get it on line!
