I found these old pics in my camera and I realize that I had never posted any of them.
What you need:
Cotton pad
Pin ( the ones that come with dress shirts and the smaller the better)
Drill bit of the same size of the pin.
Spilled toner or a ground up pencil lead.

We use laser printers at work so we are always cleaning them up. We use these cotton pads, but a cotton ball will work better.
Drill into the exhaust. I use a hand drill with a dremil bit on it. (sorry, I did not take pics of that).
Roll the cotton on the toner or pencil lead making sure you do not get too much.
Tear a small part and stab the pin through it and then put it into the exhaust.
After you have it in place, pull and shape the smoke into shape.

Thanks guys! :cheers This was an old pic I had in my camera. I think I did it sometime in early '04.

Felix, I have tried the burn-out but have not succeeded yet. I first tried with white cotton candy and it did not look real. I have been meaning to try it with the spider-web material that is sold for Holloween.

One more thing Al - that pic you have posted is of a 1:18 isn't it? Have you tried the smaller 1:43 scale? Same principle but just with more care because it is smaller, I assume?

It's a 1/18 Maisto '71 Chevelle. I only collect 1/18, so I would not know, but I assume it would work in a smaller scale.
