    1/25 Fiat Altered Coupe chrome grill?
    Hi,
    Would any one happen to know of an aftermarket photo etch or such grill for the marvelous AMT Fiat Altered Coupe?
    I thought of cutting slits in between the bars but it looks really really tight in there.
    I got there double tn box set which is quite awesome and a fantastic value I might add.  I'm really loving this tin box edition.
    I'm thinking that a custom grill would really set it apart from the pack.

    Hi Dann,
    Thats very nice if you!  The body is in fine shape, i simply soaked it in water, dried it and sanded polished to get it smooth.  Now it looks like blue primer so i will attempt the top coats this weekend.
    BTW, unsure how you were able to cut the rear cowl grill, man that's super precision.  You are a master for sure.  The car looks awesome!

    Hi,
    The beauty of chemistry, harmful to metals but not plastic.  Kind of like sulfuric acid.
    Fascinating stuff.

    Hi,
    WOW!
    And your model fared ok?

    Hi,
    Well, things were going swimmingly with my Vallejo blue, smooth, deep, rich.
    But then I got this lame notion to spray it with transparent blue which made the surface rough and dulled some of the brilliance of the regular blue.
    So I've been gently sanding it and got it smooth.
    I then did a final coat of the Vallejo blue (non transparent) and fearing decal placement would make the paint bleed, decided to do a Future coat on it.  Well the Future sort of acted as a solvent to Vallejo.
    I'm about over that calamity and will coat with Vallejo satin varnish instead.  Then decals and then the satin once again.
    Hope no more calamities.

    Hi,
    I'll post some pics in the bench area later this week.
    I'm about past a problem paint job, been holding me back for a few weeks now.

    Hi,
    He has his thumb on the pulse of our hobby to come out with items that he does.
    Very very impressive work indeed.

    Hi,
    Norm has an incredible list of items.  It's amazing just how many molds etc he has, hundred if not thousands!
    And how he is able to do all this is astonishing, and he is the nicest most prompt caster I have ever come across.
    A true superman.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the tip.  Über appreciative.

    Hi,
    Awesome, I just bought one!
    It wasn't out of being unable to shake, as last year I posted were I shook the spray cans so hard they bulged hugely.
    It was out of practicality and ease as my Vallejos tend to be so thick with pigment, they need a stellar shake.  Especially there new metallic alcohol based paints.
    PS This unit seems to have a very small foot print, doesn't take up much volume.

    Hi,
    I use em, totally bad a$$.
    Few notes;
    Shake very very very well.
    Dries super fast.
    If wishing to dilute, use either Tamiya alcohol thinner or Tamiya lacquer thinner as either have a retarder.
    Using water will make it rust.
    They really do dry super super fast.

    Exhaust detail?
    Hi,
    Does any one know where I can simply find the rings w/o the flames?
    The ones pictured are from a Model Car Garage kit.  I'd buy it but do not wish for the flames.
