Thanks guys! Yeah, I guess you can tell I like Cheetahs. It all started with a yellow H.O. slot car back in the sixties. There IS a 1/25th kit from Modelhaus for 60.00 plus 10.00 shipping. In My opinion, well worth the money when you consider the old Cox kits are going for more than 200.00!
That turned out great Bill. The panel fit and shape look spot on and the finish is perfect! As far as a clear overcoat/sealer, have you ever tried Micro Gloss? It's a water based clear made by Micro Scale. It's the only water based clear that I've found that will polish out similar to lacquer. It dries with a high gloss but I'm thinking you may be able to get the effect you're looking for if you sand it with some 2400 +/- grit. I have NO idea if any that would work, but I guess it could be something else to try. The stuff seems to be pretty bullet proof when dry so you wouldn't have to worry about gloves anymore!IMG_0175.JPG115.01KB0 downloads
