Help with my carbon FXX?

05 November 2012 - 03:01 PM

Please help me!
I love this kit but some of the instructions confuse me (which isnt all that hard!)
Im putting the rear suspension together which is step 14 in both the tamiya instructions and the SMP intructions.
My question is: when putting the # 82 a,b,c shock mounts of the SMP kit, I cant figure out how many to use. It seems that if i glue parts B, and C together, the stem wouldnt fit into the shock's mounting hole?!
And there is a lot of those peices (18 in all).
Please explain the proper way of using these parts.
Thanks in advance,
Mike.

painting my carbon fxx

Hi everyone!
I'm about to do the body on the carbon fxx from scale motorsport and I need some help.
I bought model master primer, black lacquer, and ultra gloss clearcoat (also lacquer).
Are the carbon decals compatable with these paints? I dont have good, quick access to tamiya paints and I dont airbrush. These were the best I could get.
Thanks,
Mike.

...add real lighting?

Whats up everyone!
I've not posted in a long time... very busy with life and all that junk!
My 89 batmobile kit was lost for at least a year until I found it while cleaning out my model storage space the other day!
I started to open all the vents and louvers and since theres no real engine detail to speak of, I wanted to make it as neat as possible.
I have never messed with led lights before and I was wondering if someone could give me a run down on how to do it, where to get the gear, ect.
Thanks in advance for the help, im going to try and post some pictures in the "on the workbench" section later.
P.S. anyone know when the tumbler kit by Moebius will be released?
Later kids,
Mike.

Photo etched parts question

Ok, I swear I posted this question, but when I looked for responses, the post didnt exsist!
If its here and you answered it, I'm sorry.
My questions are these: can I use super glue for the PE parts? And, whats the best method for removing them from their trees?
Thanks!
Mike.

Help with PE parts

09 November 2011 - 07:13 AM

Working on my two tamiya kits (the aston Martin DBS and the Lexus LFA) and Im to the point where I need to use the PE peices.
I've never used them before, can anybody tell me if I can glue it with superglue?
Also, whats the best way to detach it from the tree?
Thanks!
Mike.
