    Who would do that to a poor, innocent BMW?
    Then again, I do kind of like the paisley interior.

    Yes, Hobbylinc is slow to ship, but it doesn't take long once it is on the way. The service from Squadron, Scalehobbyist, & Model Roundup is great. Hobby Link Japan is really good, but remember it is coming across the Pacific. Grand Prix Models & Hannants in the UK are also good sources. Remember to always check the stock disposition before placing your orders on-line.

    Model Roundup lists both of those (plus 3 more) as in stock.

    1/43 scale Honda 500GP motorcycle by MEA. OK, a 1/43 scale multimedia kit of a bike was never going to be easy but many of the castings were horrible. Lots of cleanup. The resin tank/seat part was so bad much of it was remade from putty. Still, I love the finished model and (stupidly) would readily build one of their Dakar race bikes.

    The Revell CART Champ Cars are quite nice models with excellent decals.
    I haven't built an AMT Indy Car in 40 years, so I really can't comment on those as I don't remember what they were like.

    Gravity Colors Clear Over Decals
    Is it OK to shoot Gravity Colors 2-part clear over decals.? Specifically decals from the Fujimi Fiat 500 kits, if it matters.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    I was never fond of the C7R - I think it is the shade of yellow they use - but it looks awesome in the phantom Chaparral paint scheme.

    Great job. That's a good looking car.

    As a previous poster mentioned, Alamo Squadron is the only club I know of in your area. They are a general modeling club and a great bunch of guys. They put on a big model show every February.
    The next model show near San Antonio will be the Capitol Classic in Austin on the 24th of this month.

    We're one week out from the show, so I thought I'd bump this back to the top.
