I had previously made some tutorials on different Slot Car subjects and have now added two more - one on cutting out Grp bodies and installing windows and the latest on preparing and mounting resin wheel inserts.

 

All tutorials can be found on my blog here:

Niels, what putty are you using on minor imperfections, something similar to Squadron green or white putty? Would you use the same putty on the imperfections of a resin body?

 

Thanks,

Bill

Bill,

 

I mostly use Squadron white putty.

 

For the very small microscopic holes, which primer and paint seem to ignore, I use white correction fluid for typewriters and I use my fingertip to smear it into the holes.

 

For small repairs on body corners, etc., I use superglue and baking powder to make a strong repair. This mixture is also good for strengthening thin body parts.

 

Yours,

Hey Niels,

 

Trivia time...

 

Did you know that Liquid Paper, the first commercial white typewriter correcttion fluid you mention, was invented by the mother of Michael Nesmith, of the '60s rock band The Monkees, in her kitchen?

 

Strange but true!

Greg,

 

The Monkees in her kitchen?

 

Puts a whole new spin on it doesn't it?

Typewriter correction fluid, such as Liquid Paper, can also be used to block the flow of acid soldering flux when chassis building. I got this tip from Bob Suzuki in Canada.
