  1. The carrier was DHL. USPS was not involved at all. Don't know if that makes a difference.
  2. A follow up: I did order from gravity colors in Spain. The order was placed on Sat evening and the items were at my door the following Thurs afternoon. Not bad at all! Communication with the supplier and the carrier was excellent. Packaging was thoughtful and all items arrived undamaged. I also ordered from MCW as I have many times before but this time I was in for a very pleasant surprise! The new owners have a website (though under construction when I ordered) from which I (we) can order online from! No more mailing in my order! Also they are accessible from their facebook page. So looks like I am covered for all my paint needs weather domestic, imports, nascar, F1 or anything in-between. And just to keep everything straight I am not in any way connected or affiliated with either company. I am just sick and tired of all of us losing money to these unethical jokers and wanabe business owners. If I try splash and zero paints i will post them also. Happy modelling!!!!!
  3. Wish you good luck. Get your money back if you can. Read of what I went through.
  4. Ordered on June 27th for the first time. The order was for $41+. Emailed the next day for the free bottle of paint for first time buyers. No response. A week later I googled Gravity and I found myself talking live with someone in Spain who is (was) apparently the parent company. This very polite person with excellent English explained to me that gravity USA is no longer associated with them because of their bad marketing habits and that they ship to the US by DHL and it takes only a few days to get my order. I told him first I must get my money back. After that I did some searching on the internet and confirmed all that he said. After many more unanswered emails I filed for a return with paypal and got my money back on July 29th. If I order from Spain I will let you know how it went. Right now I'm a little gunshy as I got burned before from other suppliers.
  5. I strongly suggest that you use a mirrored base display to show all your hard and awsome work. I am a believer of "just off the line" look, but this is out of the ordinary so far. Keep up the good work and lets see it finished. From a mustang lover!
  6. Beautiful and clean work on an equaly beautiful subject!!!!!!!
  7. Great build! Did you use clear over the decals?
  8. I got my Grabber Orange from MCW Automotive Finishes. I am sure he still offers it. Here is a link to their site. http://www.mcwautomotivefinishes.com/
  9. I vote for the Mach 1. A boss 302 with no shaker scoop just doesn't do it for me. Unless of course you do the required surgery. Or you can always do a custom 1970 boss 351. Look here for some ideas. https://www.google.com/search?q=boss+351+mustang&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=jcMwU8WhI8OCyQGp34HwAg&ved=0CCUQsAQ&biw=1280&bih=671
  10. photo sharing software Yes! Purple does look good on mustangs!
  11. Oh Nooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!! It's turning into a plum crazy purple Mopar! Just kidding! I have nothing against Mopars!......! . Nice work so far! Your photos have some heavy shadows. Try moving around your lighting so the shine and body lines of the model show much better. (Just my 2 cents for what they are worth).
  12. I'm pulling up a chair!! Looking forward to the finish line!

    I remember how nice these cars looked. If you looked at them from certain angles they reminded you of a smaller '69/'70 Mustang. Especially when painted yellow with black stripes and trim.I also remember they were prone to rust very quickly, at least they did here in New England. Great job on your built. Love those clean lines and flawless shine.
