  1. Porsche 911 Nomenclature

    True yes they did. But it's strictly a race car. I don't believe a street version of it exists. I mean there is the 959 but the styling is a bit different, the front bumper anyway.
  2. Porsche 911 Nomenclature

    I always kind of wish there was a street version of the 961. I know its the race version of the 959 but it's got a much more handsome front end. I had always wondered if there were body kits to mimic this. Thanks for the informative thread.
  3. To each their own but CF decals have gotten pretty advanced now. They even have some that are a masking decal so you paint the correct color of the carbon according to reference photos. I only use pre cut ones though because I have a hell of a time making a mask for them. Using a flexible mesh and airbrushing the pattern does make a convincing alternative though.

    I stand corrected. Would be great if Tamiya or Aoshima took that on though.

    This will make a great singer style base
  6. Ferrari F40 LM

    Nice paint job! This is an interesting kit. It's not entirely accurate to the true LM but I think what it actually is, is a modified F40 with an LM package of some sort. From my google search there are F40's that do look like this but they are not THE LM. But it is in the realm of the possibility of existing. Definitely need to pick this kit up again. Maybe do it in silver.
  7. I get the same frustrations OP Id recommend switching to Tamiya or use duplicolor primer sealer over your primer before you start painting. My biggest issue with it is that I constantly get ghost lines showing through after wet coats. Only way I can avoid it is use a basecoat of a similar color by Testors or Tamiya and shoot the duplicolor over it.
  8. That's a smart way to make seat belt latches. Im stealing that! Usually I just sandwich the ribbon between two squares of plastic and paint the end red. Works quite well depending on the style of seat belt.

    Those brake lines would make a great tutorial!

    Wow that's amazing. I'd love to do that as a 9-5.

    Was really hoping Tamiya would make the 488 gtb
  14. Im okay with it as long as Rustoleum offers a better product. Duplicolor has a great primer but I'm not the biggest fan of their paints. The only ones worth using are the pearl paints to look in scale and then they have a tendency to show ghost lines, fog, and crinkle. The best results ive had with Duplicolor paints was when I used a testors or tamiya lacquer as a base and then overcoat with Duplicolor.

    It's definitely the paint. That happens with Duplicolor all the time. You can try duplicolor primer sealer and see if that helps. Otherwise I try a different brand of paint.
