    For anyone interested, Dart Hobbies are now producing a repro Strombecker M1B body kit, with a clear resin winshield, and a whole bunch of detail bits...............like the rest of Art's resin stuff, it will no doubt be of exceptional quality.

    Cheers

      Wouldn't this look great on the wall behind a slot car track?

        Gorgeous car and I would expect nothing less from you! Could you talk more about how you prepare the shut lines? To my eye, that makes a huge difference in the end result of the model realism.
        thx

                Hi Bob, I wish I could tell you that I have a quick and easy way to produce perfect shut lines, but,..that would be a lie

                I use exacto blades, a scribing tool, sandpaper, and bits of dremel disc.,.........and a whole bunch of time !!

                I have fairly recently started using bits of thin dremel discs, ..........dragged along the shut lines by hand, and have found this to be quite effective.
                I break a disc or two, and use the various shapes to clean/deepen the lines. Pointed bits of disc are great for where two lines meet, and rounded bits seem to work very well on the main parts of the lines.
                A piece of folded 800 grit paper is used for a final clean/smooth.


                Sorry there is no miracle

                Cheers

                  Part of a dremel disk - never thought of that! I usually back-drag an exacto knife blade and usually go off track and make more work for myself. Awesome suggestions- can’t to try! Thanks!

                Here's a handy tool to have to make the panel lines more pronounced.
