In Topic: House of Kolor Paint, Where do I get it?

You can also get HOK from Coast Airbrush (They do not thin there's so you will have to do it), TCP Global sells it pre-thinned and if I remember correctly, they both sell everything that HOK offers.
Coast offers 1 ounce; 2 oz; 4oz and even larger sizes if you want that much.
TCP offers 2oz and 4oz sizes.
Slixx also offers the HOK from Black Gold. And these are the REAL stuff so be sure to have a respirator when using it.
The metal flakes in the KBC series (a mixture of pearl and kandy paints that needs less coats) of HOK paints are small enough to be more in scale.
Hope that helps!

I agree with you Bob!
Aftermarket needs to come up with some modern tires and wheels that are what you might find on vehicles at a Year One Event or Good Guys show. Including some of the newer offerings from Mickey Thompson (they don't have to say that to avoid licensing fee's). Some of the available offerings by Aoshima and the like are geared more towards tuners and lux type cars.

In Topic: Custom Paint Masks???

Two other do-it-yourself options are self-adhering tracing/masking paper and Artool's Ultra-Mask. Your local automotive paint store (NOT AUTO PARTS) should carry the paper and Coast Airbrush now carries something similar in varying widths. 6"x30' in clear or semi-transparent should work for models.
RBL Products is the one I have Part No. 371- Matte Finish and it comes in a 12"x24' roll. It is repositionable, low tack that will not leave a residue, conforms to curves and irregular surfaces, and best of all is solvent proof. You can draw right on it then cut it out with an x-acto.
Artool Ultra Mask is avail at Coast Airbrush

This is a tinted film and has many of the same properties as the paper above, but is stretchable. If you have a plotter/cutter you can run it through that as well.

If you have Carquest Auto Parts nearby, they should have all the Plasticote Primer's. You may have to ask them because some locations do not have them sitting out in front, due to local city regulations. Plasti-cote will not craze the plastic like Dupli-color can at times with some Revell kits.

NICE! Like the added flame touch.
