We’ve covered the basics to help newbies learn the skills to create a gorgeous model car or truck, plus customizing stories for the more advanced modeler.Early on, die-cast model news and reviews were a huge part of the magazine, as were fullsize truck builds.Regular contributors have included the likes of Tim Boyd, Bill Coulter, Marcos Cruz, Bob Downie, Mark Gustavson, Ken Hamilton Mark…

shop talk

Cheers to 250The current issue (April 2019) is incredible, we discussed it at our March club meeting yesterday and everyone agreed it is one of the best ever and that was before we got to the coverage of our recent show. This issue is one of those issues which is a “keeper” and will be within easy reach as reference.All of us at ACME (Atlanta Car Model Enthusiasts) appreciate the support we receive from Scale Auto, your support has helped our show (NNL South) grow and motivates us to keep going.Wayne Webers, via emailThe Ford HousecarHere are a couple photos of my 1937 Ford Housecar.

grille washes: john’s results

In the December 2018 issue, we gave reader John Kirkland suggestions on applying washes to the cavities of a car’s grille. HERE’S HOW IT WENT:I used Testors enamel flat black mixed 50/50 with Testors enamel thinner. Then, I applied it into the grooves of my build’s grille with a round toothpick, which I’ve concluded is the greatest modeling tool I’ve ever used. The combination of paint and thinner flowed easily into the grille’s grooves and left nicely chromed raised ridges. I’m very pleased with the outcome.Thanks for your help!-John KirlandYou’re welcome John, Thanks for sharing your results.-KH…
