    I guess it makes sense. Oh well.  I ordered 2 bottles of the "model" stuff when I could have ordered a 4-pack of the furniture stuff (and still getting the 20% discount).  I'm hoping that the discount still works next time I'll place an order (but that'll likely not be for some time, so I doubt it).

    Hey Zack, do you happen to have any urethane resin items you could try stripping? :)

    Let me know if the discount goes away. He's my son-in-law, I'll have him give it to ya! Lol. But seriously, this stuff is really amazing and safe.

    Ok, I'll bite.

    This stuff does look promising.  The website seems to have been designed with primary focus on stripping paint from furniture, with model stripper also being offered.  Having said that, I wonder of the (wood) furniture stripping solution is the same stuff as the plastic model stripper?  The wording on the labels of both types of strippers is identical, except for the mention of models on the model version.  I'm wondering because the furniture stripper (as a 4-pack) is a better deal (and the discount code works on it too).

    Anyway, I'm always looking for new and better plastic (and resin), so I'll order the model version.  I do wonder how safe it is on resin bodies?  I think I'll let someone else find that out.  :D

    Yes it's the same product. He found that having a separate bottle and web page dedicated to modelers worked out better.

    Beautiful build! :D  Any fit issues or unforseen problems building? 

    Yes, Chassis to interior fit had to be ground in areas, hood fit, other minor fit issues.

    Well done!  Your painting is beyond exceptional.  What type of paints did you use?

    I used cheap hobby lobby craft paints and tamiya. The weathering and shadow effects are from a Army Painter Warpaints Quickshade Washes Set. Picked it up on ebay. One of the best "tools" I ever purchased for doing weathering and shading. They are great.

  5. After 9 months of not receiving parts , I finally got some progress. Not much but the firewall is assembled and detailed. The washer bottle is a clear bottomless tank. I made a bottom and filled it 1/2 way with blue tinted epoxy to look like it’s got washer fluid in it. Almost all parts in this assembly were detail painted in one way or another. 



  6. Thanks everyone! I wanted the 3 pc body to be seamless. I built the interior then assembled it into the body & did the seams, masked then painted it. I would have never done this as a kid!! But these kits are really fun and build up nice
