    Definitely the Crome Yellow. there is to much of a brownish tint with the Camel yellow.

     Got organized and ready for building this fall and winter. I had to move my spray booth and cleanup to fit in my new paint rack. BTW that is the nutty but entertaining Ancient Aliens on TV.

    Smokes for my Mclaren MP4/2 and a used Tamiya paint rack.

    Awesome job. Is that the Fujimi kit? Word of warning that TS-36 has problems with cracking. Mine did on the MP4/& long after it was built. I hope yours is OK. I will not use it again.

    It's far better kit than the old Protar kit. I have the "option" decals coming in the mail from mshobbies. You can see all the parts and instructions here http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10320844

    I use to use dullcote and their semigloss but I always airbrush it. This gives you much more control. You control the shine with the way you spray. They spray well but both rub off if handled too much. I think Tamiya's Flat(TS-80) and Semi-Gloss(TS-79) spray better out of the can and are much more durable.

    Delivered today from mshobbies.com(great prices and service) This is my first Beemax/Aoshima kit and it won't be last.

    This set works great. The small starter points are small enough for model building. I use them  to countersink the heads of straight pins I use for re-enforcing and pinning models

    DTM Mustang
    This was posted at motorsport.com  I think it just a concept but there was a Mustang in the series in the early nineties.

    Try soaking in water overnight. water will eventually soften and weaken it. Do not use suprglue for windows, you are asking for trouble. Try a good PVA glue like Formula 560 Canopy Glue or Microscale Krystal Klear. It can be rubbed right off or wiped off with water on a Q-Tip. It does take awhile to setup but the safety factor is worth it. It holds very well when dry.

    The paint looks great. How many ounces are in a jar? It really does not say on the website.

  15. 935k3 added a post in a topic Tamiya Martini Alfa Romeo V6 TI... Rare Kit??   

    It is a great kit but beware anybody buying Tamiya kits from this time period(early to mid nineties) Tamiya had issues with cracking decals. I would not buy these kits unless I could see the decals in person.
