  1. Hey guys, Feel the need to help Moebius CS a bit here. Earlier this summer I had to contact them about replacing the chassis and some parts on a sprue (on same kit as MrMike I think) - it seemed to be an injection issue where the plastic didn't reach all the extremities. Moebius replied to my e-mail immediately and within a week I had the new parts in the post. Maybe the difference here is my issue was clearly unfixable? But they did come through. Take care! Daf
  2. I expected this one to be along shortly after the flairside - it's certainly taking a bit longer isn't it? Anyone heard anything about the timeline on getting pre-order info? Thanks!
  3. Hey thanks, guys. I had the same issues with the softening along with the other issues I mentioned. I think I'll go back to enamels/lacquers for high gloss finishes. Maybe it's possible with acrylics but it's certainly more trouble than worth. Thanks again! Daf
  4. Hi all, Made the move to acrylics (Vallejo, Tamiya, etc...) some time back - due to ease of clean up and indoor use. It works well, for me, for my mecha and ma.k models. But not so much for realistic auto body finishes. It's a much less durable finish and I can't seem to manage the sanding/polishing - even with multiple well cured coats the least bit of sanding will quickly get you back to plastic. That's even with a clear coat and very fine sand paper. Without the sanding/polishing it dull at best. Has anyone been able to get a good factory shine using acrylics? Or should I go back to the enamels for that purpose? Thanks! Daf
  5. Hey thanks, Joe. That's good news, hope I get a reply soon.
  6. Hi, Sent a couple of e-mails and tried calling Steve a couple of times. No reply on the e-mails and voice mail on the phone. Is Star Models still in business?
  7. Woohoo! Just got the first shipment of pre-ordered kits!! Worth the long wait - they look great!

  11. Hi all, I've had this model on pre-order over at Mega Hobby for over a year. I finally sent Moebius a note asking the status. They said that production was running behind and should be early 2015. I hope so! I noticed the other thread had been shut down due to lack of info ... sorry if this is not an appropriate post. I've really been looking forward to this one. Maybe a few others have as well so I wanted to post this small update.
