Ford Pinto Kit

04 January 2010 - 01:00 PM

Are there any affordable Ford Pinto model kits available? The ones I see on Ebay are going for a premium. I raced mini stock circle track in the past and would like to find some kits to play around with if they are out there.

Tamiya Morris Mini Cooper 1275S Rally

My first kit that I will be building to reenter the hobby is the Tamiya Morris Mini Cooper 1275S Rally. It looks like it will be fun. Since it's a Mini, ALL of the parts are smaller than what I usually built in the past. It will also be my first Tamiya build.

What brushes do you suggest? I always used the cheap white Testors with the black bristles. Now that I'm starting over buying all new stuff, what other brushes should I look at. Anything that Hobby Lobby might have since they are convenient for me? I will be using Tamiya acrylics.

I have been out of modeling for a while now. All of my paints will need to be replaced. I always used Testors enamels since they are the cheapest and easiest to find. Now that I am starting over, I thought about trying Model Master or Tamiya. I can't get Tamiya locally. I don't have an airbrush. I've read that the acrylics work well with a brush and I've also read that they don't. I tried Testors acrylic years ago and I could not cover with it at all. Is it worth switching to one of these brands, or should I stick with the Testors enamel?
