  1. I think you just have to use your best judgement. I also noticed the threads you mentioned OP. However I think with some threads you get the understanding upon reading it whether they are into the hobby to improve and become a more refined modeler or if they simply do it for fun and enjoyment. Sometimes i notice a well done build 8/10 but I see one thing that is an eye sore yet I reserve comment because I think it would take away from the accomplishment of completing the kit. Generally though I think those that get more refined in their skill do so because they are their own critic, not because someone tells them whats wrong.
  2. Hey guys just thought I would pass along a great deal for sand paper I found on Amazon. Its a hell of a deal vs what 3m and modelling shops charge for polishing pads and sand paper. Just bought 54 pieces of 1000-5000 sand paper for $9 and then a another assortment of 3000-7000 grit for $8. I imagine I wont need sand paper for quite some time. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07Q3D57N2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078HG5R8W/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  3. Vallejo model air paints are the superior choice for anything with interiors, semi gloss paints and certain metallic paints. Tamiya TS paints are the way to go for bodies and their flat aluminum other metallic colors are great for simulating the grain of metal casting.
  4. Can't wait. The new supra has grown on me and it's a beautiful car in its own right. I think it looks best in yellow or silver.
  5. Great news! I really hope that one day Tamiya or Aoshima makes the Discovery 2 with roof racks and bull bars. They would be a total hit in the market. I might buy all of them.
  6. I use spray adhesive instead of white glue and use a strainer to apply it with. It works much much better.
  7. I have to say I share the concern of the other comments but that photo is actually not bad and pretty realistic. I think one thing you could try is to cut the piece out to shape, then coat it in future or clear epoxy. Gotta find away to get those edges flat and more realistic. Then you could glue it to the body.
  8. It’s big enough in my opinion. I know others don’t share that opinion but 1/24 has a better scale appearance when it comes to the final assembly and finish of a model. 1/25 also makes an odd display next to the 1/24 standard of most models these days
  9. Agreed 100% I think Tamiya or Revell will release the new vet and I pray it’s 1/24 also. People don’t think it’s a big difference between 1/25 but I disagree. You lose potential in detail and at 1/25 you get into a toylike appearance.
  10. Looking great so far. Thats a great silver. I do think those roof lines go edge to edge though. I've got this kit and I've been checking reference photos. The MK4 Supra has the same sort of detail. It's frustrating trying to figure out where to sand the mold line without erasing the detail.
  11. I depends on the part to be honest.

    I think Chevy just blew the cap off the exotic car market. Not sure if it was intentional or not but I think they just showed everyone just how over priced the Ferrari's and Lambo's really are. They really aren't even that great of cars in terms of reliability and maintenance. I can bet the C8 is going to be a very reliable car for "exotics".

    I do find the c8 to be egregiously similar to the 488 gtb. But I also sort of don’t care because it is still beautiful in its own right and is less than 100k.

    I really want to like it. It looks good for the most part but the rear end looks a little over designed to me and I can't help but think 488 GTB every time I see it.
