    Can I ask what clear coat it was exactly? It looks like Glosscote the way it pulled up. Tamiya's clear(TS-13) and Testors wet look have better chemical adhesion. Glosscote just lays on top as a separate layer. I truly think Glosscote is a shellac not lacquer.

    Is that the Wim who runs bestbalsakits?

    Yes the nozzles suck and I use the Tamiya nozzles also. The paint is great and sands beautifully.

    In a word, YES. Plastikote is even better if you can find it.

    Ace, have you tried Tamiya's tape for curves? It's very flexible like the 3M fine line vinyl tapes.

    I have found it can be very difficult to remove. I have tried many brands and found The Humbrol Maskol to be the best. It dries to a very solid rubbery texture that is easy to remove. Do not use any over Acrylic paints, they bond together and will not separate.

    Try a drop or two of Future under the decal this will make them stick and stay down better.

    Very nice work. The Plastruct hex rod shown below makes pretty nice hose fittings. Also see the pic at bottom of my Porsche where I used it for fittings.

    Porsche 911 Turbo 88
    The kit is the Tamiya 911 Porsche 911 Turbo 88. This one has been painted awhile but just now starting it. Paint is Motip touchup paint F77-78 clear coated with Testors Wet look Clear. The wheels were satin chrome but I repainted them with Spaztix. This kit is partially snaploc assembly. I will fill all the holes and mount part an alternate way. No decision on interior colors yet. Te rear wing was cut loose for better paint access and to scribe trunk lines. Tamiya molded the entire car with rear deck and wing one piece. The front has a license plate housing that sticks out and is very unrealistic. This was removed and filled in with plastic so a normal separate plate can be used.

    Nice job Bill.

    Great job Steve. I wish I would have built mine when I had one. I would probably solder the photo etch vents for strength.

    Awesome job. The best build of that series of kits I have seen.
