In Topic: Best of the GT40 Kits?

26 March 2014 - 02:54 AM

Has anyone built the Mark IV from Union Model Company? It's in my stash and looks very detailed but I've never seen one built. Boththe rear deck and the hood are hinged. Full engine.



In Topic: How many of you participate in contests ?

27 November 2013 - 07:50 AM

I participate in a couple of local contests each year. I don't build for the contests. I use the contests as a showcase to show what I have built over the previous year. I only get 4-6 builds complete each year and I find it enjoyable to showcase them.

In Topic: Paint Strippers - What to Use?

Thanks all. Two bottles of 'fresh' brake fluid in an air tight container took almost 2 weeks to remove 95% of the paint.


I will say the Alclad candy laid down and looked great before I had to strip it off.

I slightly screwed up a paint job where I was using the Alclad Candy paints and clear. I have tried to strip the paint using all three of my usual paint stripping options.  


I have tried in order:

Easy-Off (yellow lid)

Brake Fluid dot-3

Castrol superclean degreaser.

Brake fluid again

Easy-Off again.

All these were left on for at leat 24 hours each. Scrubbed with a toothbrush.


Any ideas or solutions?
