    I've spent half the cost of the model on stuff to get the paint off. It doesn't show on the pics but there seem to be little holes in the paint that go right into the plastic, I think the paint has bonded with the plastic and actually soaked into it, which is why it wont come off so I think my only option is to sand it and try spraying it again I will just have to live with whatever the results are. its a shame as I was really looking forward to this one.
  2. Thanks for the comments, as I said at thevstart I am considering this finished so I won't be cutting anything, it's in the photos of the car with the monkee's in it that's good enough for me. Apparently there was more than one car built with several differences between them so maybe we are all right.

  3. I you're saying lee but it's really bad of mpc to get the engine placement that wrong I mean 10mm *24 that's 20mm short of 1/2 a metre it seems mpc don't care at all about accuracy not sure I would buy another of their kits.

  4. Thanks Carl

    thought I had got over the engine problems but as you can see the chassis is where it should be but the engine must be at least 10 mm out I have to fit the blower on there, dont know how to get round this one whether to hack the chassis about or try and move the engine forward some how.

    the decal is too big its supposed to fit inside the door and its supposed to say The Monkees not just Monkees, oh and its supposed to be yellow not gold.
    none of the engine parts fit correctly there is no radiator or hoses for the engine.
    if I cant build a decent model soon I think I will give up altogether.

  6. Hi all thanks for the comments I have been using Halfords grey primer and Humbrol enamels, never had this problem before and I would've thought the oven cleaner I stripped the first lot of paint off would have taken care of the release agent.

  7. Hi all started this one but I am having all sorts of problems with the paint

    still not happy with it there must be a reaction with the plastic or something, might try barrier coat or something.

  8. Hi all well it's finished (I was going to put HT leads on it but got fed up with them keep falling off so they can stay off)

    the rear lights are supposed to have little bullets in them but I like the look without them so left them off.

    the top is supposed to be a complete dome but I thought that wasnt very practible so I made it a convertible

  10. Well I dont think the new version can be any better than your older one.you need 8 arms and 16 pairs of hands

    The rear suspension is a real pig

    Here is todays offering

    Think I may do away with the fender decals, as it seems no amout of Micro sol or Micro set will take the wrinkles out of them.

  11. Hi all just a quickie as a break. I am doing the Beatnik Bandit (Not the correct colours) I never build as it's supposed to be, unless it's a definitive article. Nope don't build the way it's supposed to be, 2 reasons for that.
    1: Hides my bad modeling skills(cant say its wrong if its being deliberately done wrong from the start)
    2: I like being different.
    So Here's my start.

    I want the engine to look like it's been around a while, not like it's just come out of the custom shop.
