RIT will dye almost anything- I used to dye nylatron HO slotcar chassis with it I've used actual automotive tint film and Tamiya "smoke" to tint windows in the past- the tint film looks the most realistic
I use a little watercolor tray and put a little paint in one of the wells and a mixture of isopropyl alcohol and a few drops of water in another, then add a little of the thinning mixture to the paint as needed while I brush-paint. It really helps to minimize the "rollup" and "clump" caused by the strong drying agent in Tamiya acrylic.
Used 32" TVs go pretty cheap around here, seems everybody wants the huge TVs nowadays One of my neighbors put a 32" Proscan out by the curb with a "FREE" sign on it a few months back so I grabbed it for a spare (32" is the largest TV that will fit in my entertainment center)
I paid $290 for a Revell 1/4 slant six kit about 3 years ago- sold it for a little over $400 a month later. The most expensive kit I've actually built was a Doyusha 1/12 Lamborghini LP500S that I bought on sale for $65 in 1986
