Awesome tutorial, looks like the perfect material for replicating vinyl tops. The molding strips look very much in scale also, something I have seen done before without much success. Thanks for sharing bro, you are a very talented builder.

Walmart has vinyl real cheap. Depending on what kind you get, you might have to shave the cotton off of the back so it doesnt stick above the roof real high.

Hey Cruz, I think Dave Thibodeau stole your idea, only his was featured in Scale Auto Magazine. :lol:  Same car and color, I thought it was yours.

I saw that Kevin but believe me, there's a lot of stuff I can learn from Dave, not the other way around...

The Model Master vinyl top spray system (base coat & texture sprays) looked just right for the leather convertible top I need for a Mercedes classic. I went to HobbyTown USA on Thursday to get some and they were out -- in fact, when I asked, they looked in the catalog and it's not listed any more. The lady said it's probably among the products that Testors discontinued last year in the overhaul of their product line.

 

Looked for it online and it's shown as being out of stock.

Now that Model Master no longer makes the vinyl top paint system, any suggestions for making a leather convertible top look like this in 1/16?
