  1. I think this is an extremely valid point. Anyone who uses 2k clear knows how hard it is to polish out scratches which is way harder than lacquer. A dremel is totally fine from my experience on 2k, but just doesn't quite get the job done with the compounds/pastes I have used in the past. More important is finding a paste aggressive enough to take out any scratches made in the wet sanding process. I personally nearly always don't wet sand, but sometimes you just have to. If anyone has used one that is aggressive enough, that would be great to hear about. I have been looking at Farecla G3. Thanks
  2. Interesting build. Quality of parts is not so great with a lot of mold lines, but the proportions of the body and decals are great. Also was missing the spare wheel which is waiting for shipment in Japan.
  3. Box stock except for the Indycal decals. Fun build and challenging paint scheme/decals.
  4. Brilliant, Seton and Fury used to wheel these things around great back in the day.
  5. I never use enamel, however it looks like too much air flow vs paint flow causing tip dry. Gives a kind of dust affect
  6. Gidday, Thanks for the comments the build thread is here:
  7. Gidday, Started out as the road car kit from Revell, pulled the guards out, lowered, added a roll cage, exhaust system and engine bay detail. Fun and complicated build. On to the next one, Mike
  8. Thanks for the comments guys. I managed to get a bit more done during the lockdown period, front and rear parts attached, just a few engine bay bits and some ducts to do now + tire decals.
  9. The Challenger is coming along nicely. Still quite a bit of work to do on the splitter and also in the engine bay. Tail lights/ rear panel and bumpers also to fit yet.
  10. On the pricing difference, it depends where you live. If you don't live in USA or Japan, it is quite possible the Tamiya Kits might be cheaper, especially if you buy online.
  11. The refill doesnt seem to have this problem. Always like new.
