    Foose FD-100 kit in my hands right now. They're out there my LHS got them in yesterday. It looks like a really nice kit.
  2. OutaFocus added a post in a topic Silicone rubber reacting badly, unsure why?   

    Yeah, as was said in a post above, I doubt Shapeways adds anything to the printing material, but who knows what it's made from. Perhaps something in the chemical makeup is reacting with the RTV. Sealing the master is a good start if it can be done without destroying the detail. As was already suggested,testing it on some RTV before making another mold is a good idea.

    If the master contains sulfur it will react with certain RTVs. Platinum cure RTV is very sensitive to sulfur and some other substances. I try to only use a tin cure RTV as it is more tolerant of most substances. I use Kleen Klay if I need clay to make a mold because it is sulfur free. I have no idea of the chemical makeup of the 3D part, but I would assume it's something in it that is reacting with your RTV.

    The artwork for those decals was done by Russ Quaterman and produced by Microscale, who at one time, and may still, print Slixx decals. When I had those decals done (printed on the same sheet as the Gapp & Roush Pinto P/S decals and then cut apart) the Slixx guys saw them at Microscale they told me they liked them alot.

    Us Mac users just go on with our day as most attacks are aimed at Windows. They go after the big fish...J/K. Seriously, UBlock Origin is one of the best as blockers I have used. It not only blocks all of the ads (I disable it on the sites I believe in and want to support) but, it blocks the ads at the beginning of YouTube videos. I run this and the Ad Block+ plugins for both FireFox and Chrome and I never see an ad unless I want to.

    Ahh, answers my question. Guess I should read!

    Parts look great,as usual for Modelhaus, but where is the 69 RR grill? It was different than the 68 RR and 69 GTX. When we did our 69 RR 440-6 conversion we put the center of a JoHan 69 grill in an AMT 69 grill frame. I sent all of our masters to Perry's resin, so I don't know about the availability nowadays.

    Look at the tail lights, it's a '70 Challenger. Not the '70 Landy paint scheme, but a '70 car. I can't read the class designation over the number on the side glass, but I think it's an SS car based on the engine callouts on the hood scoop.

    Here is a ink to images of some of the Revell built ups. This isn't my album, bu the pictures are on page 7;

    I got to see test shots/ buildups of the Foose C7, Nickey Camaro, and some others at the Southern Nationals NNL this weekend. Ed Sexton said there were no changes to the basic body of the Camaro, but the Nickey parts, especially the hood, looked good. It's also an RS, so there is a new grill, taillights, etc.
    The Ford GT looked great, it appears to be a snap kit and the built kit on display just about nailed the color of the show car.
  11. OutaFocus added a post in a topic Jo-Han Maverick and Comet Pro Stock kit comparison   

    Motorwheel Spyders. They were in the kit along with the nicest 3pc rear spoiler I've seen. The Shartman car ran with the scoop in both positions.
    Interestingly, I had several re released Comet kits with the boxart shown in the beginning of this thread packaged with decals from a Shartman Comet kit. They were decals for the Gold(?) car with the orange and blue squares.

    I looked at the M3D site and could find little technical information. I like the looks of the head & valve cover, but how much finish work after printing did it take to get to the point you showed? Is the printed surface smooth?
  13. OutaFocus added a post in a topic New decal and resin body   


    The hood has the cowl in place as was common for P/S cars of the era, so no, it isn't stock.
  14. OutaFocus added a post in a topic WHICH One to build w/ 1972 CHALLENGER Funny car   

    Since the original issue of that kit was of the Gene Snow car, it's only natural that the chassis is more correct for that version than the others. For the sake of accuracy, I would build the Snow car.

    Nitpick all you want, but compared to the stuff coming out of Revell these days, this kit and company are a breath of fresh air. Well done!

    Now....where's that A990?
