    clear coat on tamiya gloss aluminum paint
    I am painting my rx-7 the Tamiya Gloss aluminum (TS-17). This is the first time i am trying a silver paint.  I did a test piece and it looks nice, however when i tried to clear coat the test piece (with tamiya clear) it lost its metallic look and looks just grey.
     
    Can you not clear coat this color?

    how to make black interiors nice
    I am going to be working on an 1993 Rx7 kit starting today and i have never been able to make a black interior look nice. For example, i use matte black for the the dash and the seats (to make the seats look like leather), but what would you do for the carpet and the door panels. probably matte black there as well, so it matches the dash.
     
    But now it looks like i can build the entire interior and drop it in a bucket of matte black paint and call it finished.  any ideas on how to mix it up a bit on modern cars to make it look realistic?

    tamiya mazda rx7 kit spirit r spoiler
    Hi 
    I ordered the mazda rx7 kit from tamiya and it should be arriving tomorrow. I am looking for the spoiler in the second picture with the flat top (spirit R spoiler).  does anyone know of a kit that has a similar spoiler that might fit or an aftermarket company that makes one?
    this is the kit

    the spoiler i am looking for is this one where it is flat and connects with 1 piece on the side (spirit R).

    I would rather not buy the fujimi spirit r kit since they are costly and i already bought the tamiya one, but if this is the only one, then i guess i would buy it.  I would definitely prefer an aftermarket over a whole kit if anyone knows where to find one, i would appreciate it

    i never have luck with resin. i dont have much luck with dong anything custom. i do ok with box stock, but when i try to put my 2 cents in, i always end up ruining the whole thing

    thank you very much for the information. i built the convertible a couple of years ago and i like it very much. its why i wanted to build the coupe to go along with it.

    i guess i will do the 40 coupe instead

    1948 ford custom coupe revell
    does anyone know if this new 1948 ford custom coupe revell http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXZWS5&P=W
    is the same as http://u.jimdo.com/www37/o/se372970042158879/img/i62c7f4748afc5224/1309812373/orig/image.jpg except it has a coupe body?


    if it is not the same, can the custom coupe be built stock or does it only have custom parts?

    thank you for your help.

    can anyone tell me the differences in the actual kits
    Can anyone tell me if there are any differences with the following kits other than the box art? Meaning are they the same general model, but maybe different rims or misc bits included, or are they exactly the same and the only difference is the box art

    Model 1



    Model 2



    Model 3
