  • Mirrors, Mirrors, Mirrors!

    The Boyz have always felt strongly that mirrors add so much realism to the builds let many of the static models don't come with mirrors, and never so glaring than a Van.

    Who can drive a van without side mirrors!

    Really like this Dodge Van build, except up to recently no mirrors!!

    Recently I was at a Walgreens and their toy area had all of these 1:48ish cars and trucks for $3.99 each on sale, and several had attached that could be detached mirrors!!

    A little black matching paint from a felt tip, and the magic chrome pen and what a difference!!

    Since this discovery I have been picking up these trucks and cars at WalMart, Target, Cracker Barrel, and will go back and install mirrors!!

          A "Fred Flinstone" here, good idea!

          Sort of like going to the pull-a-part and stripping cars , my favorite pastime, then I sell the junk on evilbay and buy more slot car stuff.
          Mirrors are hard to find, I end up using the spare ones I have for Carrera Hot Rods, but those pickin's are gettin' real slim.
