    Every so often you run across a model that just looks "right".  This is one of those models.  Paint, wheel/tire combo, stance, etc.  They all look "right"  Nice job!

    Depending on how deep some of the scratches / scuffs are, you could try dipping the windshield in Future.  It isn't a cure all but it will take care on minor problems.

    Dale, this is one of my favorite liveries on this car, not sure why, but it is.  You have done an outstanding job on it.  Great photography too.  Thanks for sharing!

    Yes, I have heard/read about it but I have never, that I can remember, had a poor outcome because I shook the can.  I think the possibility of a poor outcome from not shaking the can enough would be greater than the possibility of a poor outcome from shaking it.

    Tomo!!  Awesome!  You are getting the model thing down...  Really, that is a great looking model.  Nice job, buddy.

    Hi Mark.  If your response was to my picture, thank you.  The picture is over-exposed.  I'm sitting here looking at the model and the red portion of the decals is a darker red.  The blue is also darker than what shows in the picture.

    I just run hot tap water into an old water pitcher.  The cylindrical, tall, old fashioned one.  I put the can of paint into the pitcher and leave it in there for a few minutes.  I take the can out, shake the heck out of it, while at the same time running more hot water back into the pitcher.  I do this two or three times until I feel the can of paint is uniformly warm.

    This was the first Tamiya kit that I ever built.  I think it is a very nice kit.  I remember being amazed by several things.  The fit of the parts, the perfect stance and the fact the tires/wheels fit in the wheel wells perfectly.

    Very cool!  This one just looks "right".  I agree with everyone else, the color looks good on it.

    Another nice looking truck, Cliff!  I didn't know you built trucks, I seem to only remember seeing cars.  Are you working on more trucks?
