That is really spectacular work. I love everything about it. What did you use for the diamond plate? 


In Topic: Thinning Tamiya Fine Surface and Scale Finishes question

You thin Tamiya bottled surface primer with Tamiya lacquer thinner. If you try any other lacquer thinner, you will have problems.

 

 

I am going to disagree and state the contrary position. I always use regular lacquer thinner to thin Tamiya Liquid Surface Primer and have never had any sort of problem with it. I shoot it through my Paasche VL airbrush just like any other paint thinned with lacquer thinner. I get great results and highly recommend the use of regular lacquer thinner with this Tamiya product. One does need to thin it quite a lot, though; it is a very viscous primer.

Thanks for looking. I forgot to mention the roof rack: the owner made it himself using readily available materials and attaching the thing to the roof with muffler clamps.

My irresponsible spending spree continues unbridled (I'm selling a bunch too). Once again, none of it cheap, but I'm in a what-the-heck-you-only-live-once frame of mind and more are on the way.

(To ease my consumerist conscience, I am donating 30c per model $ spent to my favourite charities, The Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders....
