  1. Hi, I've noticed that both Studio27 and Scale Motorsports have carbon fiber sets for the Tamiya 911 GT1. I'm curious if any one has experience in these sets. They both look nice but the Studio27 set seems to offer more variety in materials. However I'm a fan of Scale Motorsports in terms of there work and customer service.
  2. Oh cool. I never thought to look at there GT car decals. They've awesome tire decals for sure and are easy and great to deal with.
  3. I cringed through most of this video, just epic engine failures. Some of it funny, most was heart breaking.
  4. These decals look very nice but there is no car remotely close to use them on. Look at the K3 front air dam and rear wing for example. I don't think these decals would look right on it. If it's one thing that I've learned reading all of the posts and looking at all of the work on this message board, accuracy is very important. To me, not so much but in general to the seasoned builder, it can be very critical.
  5. This is in fact my approach as well. I even go so far in my interpretation as to be offensive to the history buff. So I'm wth you on this.
  6. This looks very very cool and works very well for me, nice job man! However if one wishes to be accurate, the AMT car looks nothing like the K3 car. The front end and rear end are to me, worlds apart.
  7. For sure. I noticed a lot of differences in the look of the Hawaiian Tropics car which is why I am waiting for that one and probably will not be getting the K3. However ... maybe I will Actually I'd get the K3 car as well if some one came out with the Apple livery. I bought the Apple livery from a guy on eBay whose scans are low rez and for shi$. He scans a lot of livery in very low rez and I've heard his name mentioned here as some one to avoid.
  8. Hi, Would any one know the I.D, O.D. and width of the AMT Firestone Drag 500? Thanks in advance.
  9. This should be awesome. I think they are also to release the Newman Hawaiian Tropics version as well. Now that's one I'm waiting on for sure.
  10. Hello, I'm curious if any one knows wether the 1/24 Tamiya Porsche Carrera GT full view kit also has the standard body in it? Thanks in advance. PS If not, would there be issues painting the full view body?
  11. Thanks AFX. I love this guys reviews etc... he's superb! Revell is doing some very very nice stuff these days. I think they get some undue criticism at times.
  12. Hi, So I'm contemplating a first first model kit to start off with since I stopped building end of last year. The Revell Porsche 934 RSR in Martini livery looks to be a lot of fun. Could any one who has built it comment on the kit? Thanks in advance.
  13. Hi, Scott is excellent as are his products. Randy Ditton over at MBWH can also get his warez as well.
  14. I'd email them as Matthew over there has great customer service.
  15. Heck, I'd take it from any one. But it would be much better to me in styrene from every one we know and love. Or how about this;
  16. Yea man, wow. I'm hoping either gets kitted. I mean we've seen the Huayra, FXX-K, Ford GT etc... so why not?
  17. Hi, Wondering if any one in the know has heard of either the new Porsche 935 or DeTomaso P72 being kitted in 1/24 form? They are both lovely!
  18. Well, I've had no luck reviving a dried out nibs. I've tried soaking nibs in various fromage like alcohol, SuperClean, lacquer thinner etc... I ended up putting the remaining chrome in a small paint jar and just using toothpicks and paint brushes to apply.
  19. I see, thank you JC. This gives me a great starting point. Thanks again.
  20. Hmm, this to me is the critical component and sets up everything else. How do you pre-bend it?
  21. Hi and thanks Ace. Darn, was hoping of an easier option. Welp, I guess making the included engine of the kit better is what a modeler would do. So I'll plan on that. Thanks again.
  22. Hi JC, Man your warez look incredible. How close do you hold the part near the flame and for how long? Whats an indicator that the heated part is ready to bend? I've tried this and end up blackening and ruining the parts.
