Did you ever get a response? I ordered some parts from TMR 6 months ago...sent an email inquiry a couple months ago, never got a reply.

 

Yes I did. He answers my e-mails and claims he shipped (again?) nov. 17th. I still have never recieved any of the goods I ordered (and payed) in April 2011. I actually trust he did send my goods. :/ Somehow I got the impression that he wants to do the right thing, but as I said -> no goods here. Sent him an e-mail this morning and got a refund to my PayPal-account few hours later. Case closed, no hard feelings.

Thanks again everyone!

Nova actually isn't that shiny in real life. Which is good imo, since I think too much shine is not realistic. What is the perfect scale-shine?
I'm still working with my techniques to create a decent rusty-look, but I have not succeeded yet. It's so much easier to do the shiny one... I'll keep paarctising and hopefully some day end up with something i can post here.

As an individual trying new things as well, I can understand where you're coming from when the technique you're trying doesn't come out as good as some of the pros on this forum. But I don't see any flaws here, just a beautiful model. Really love the air cleaner poking up through the hood.


Thanks Rusty and everyone else.
I'm a perfectionist and it does bother me when I build. I just can not build as flawlessly as I want to. With this paintjob, the thin Aizu tape I used for the this line, leaked a bit, so I'm not happy. Wide Tamiya tape did it's job. I guess I just wasn't pushing the thinner tape in hard enough... I'll try to do the next one better. ;)

Thank you for all the comments everyone. :rolleyes:

Since I don't have time or money to build my dreams cars in 1:1, I'll do my best in 1:25, heh. Every kit I build, I try to build as I think it should be built in real life. I'm glad you like it. :P
I could still use some constructive criticism on my modeling techniques, since I do try to improve with every kit I build and I know I have a long way to go...

Thank you all for the kind words. B)

As you can tell from this and the other cars I posted, I love sleepers ;) Steelies and dog dish caps are the way to go for me...

I'm a motorhead and very much into older american cars (especially muscle cars). I do try to attend every show, meet, swap and drag event held nearby.

I guess my current "hobby car" tells you more. This is my current 1:1 pride and joy

Originally 6 + manual, swapped in a lame 305/350 combo few years ago, but I do have that 400hp killer sbc in the garage waiting for some more parts and assembly. Then we have a sleeper... lol
Yes, I do have few Jimmy Flintstone '72 ElCamino bodies in my stash as well as few amt '72 Chevelle and amt '68 Camino kits as donors. Will build them as soon as feel I'm good enough. :wacko:

My previous US car was not a sleeper though (but it did have steelies...)
