  1. Light grey lacquer primer.

    Well I don't have as much experience as the other builders who have replied, however I've found the Alclad Grey Micro-Filler Primer pretty awesome. I do thin it a little, say 20% thinner to 80% primer. The thinners I use are either Tamiya Lacquer Thinner or Mr. Leveling Thinner.
  2. 1/24 Tamiya King Cobra slot car parts kit

    I actually bought this direct from Tamiya as well as the Brock Little book. Planning to build as detailed a version as I am capable of. That is one day, once I have a work shop etc...
  3. Airbrush compressor

    I vote for this one @~$150 with a 1 year warranty; https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001CJPWYM/?coliid=I270K6AQNW88K1&colid=1OTOOX6BLJGFG&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it But this one @~$100 is fine too, unsure if you will get any support past 3 months; https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004KNDQCM/?coliid=IN4BLR9MO6808&colid=1OTOOX6BLJGFG&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it Or this one @~$110; https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077CNLPBC/?coliid=I2IDQKUIFDHFOL&colid=1OTOOX6BLJGFG&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it ;
  4. Ah yes, this will be invaluable info. I look forward to what you find. From what I've read, one can wet sand with 3200 grit and higher. Apparently there polyurethane mix is a must.
  5. Do you mind posting some pics? Do you see it as a good automotive finish?
  6. Well, I'm contemplating Mission Models Paints; https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/mission-models-paint-thinner-polyurethane-primer-and-paint-part-1 https://dnmodels.com/all/mission-models-us-acrylics/ I've read a few sources stating that more colors are planned. My only reluctance is that all of the positive reviews of this paint are by builders of military subject matter. And automotive finishes are very different then military finishes.
  7. Curious if any one has used Mission Models Paints? Would love to read your thoughts, experiences etc... I've read and watched some very positive reviews. Seems to be a lacquer replacement of sorts.
  8. Motor Racing Replica News

    Yup, I had bought it from him a year or so ago. It's awesome BTW!
  9. I had this kit at one time. Was curious if any one would part with it? It's just a body and I think a windshield. Thanks in advance.
  10. De Tomaso Mangusta

    Nice a$$;
  11. Any tips for metallics?

    In terms of metallic flakes being a bit too large with certain brands and colors, can one use a thinner to reduce there size? I ask this as Gaianotes makes a metallic thinner (T-09) for the same thing.
  12. Quiet Air Compressors

    This one seems great at $120; https://www.lowes.com/pd/California-Air-Tools-Light-and-Quiet-1-Gallon-Portable-Electric-Horizontal-Air-Compressor/1000259419
  13. De Tomaso Mangusta

    Well, I did manage to rescue a few kits, one of them was the SMP24 Mangusta. My day dream was to build the race car pictured in blue. Now if only SMP24 would re release the 1/24 69' Ferrari 512 Specialé Berlinetta, I'd be one happy camper! As hhhhhhhappy as a hhhhhhhippo!
