    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.

    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.

    Just wanted to let you know that the recent heavy thunderstorms we have had in the Houston area will not have any ill effect on the show. The roads around the Stafford Center are open and the Center will be open on Saturday. No bad weather predicted for Saturday. (No replay of 3 years ago.)
    The show is a go.
    See y'all on Saturday.
