Tamiya paints can be a bit tempremental when brush painting I generally get pretty good results though, the best acrylics for brush painting are the Vallejo Model Color range they are very nice to use.
Im an assistant manager at a car motor factors, not a big chain just a local company with 5 branches, Ive been working in the motor trade all my working life so far (24 years) except for a brief spell on a construction site when I left school.
We cant get many of the US car shows over here, but I do like Chasing Classic cars, as for our own shows Wheeler Dealers and Car SOS are very watchable, tried to watch Fast & Loud but I find Richard very hard to watch, Misfit garage was a little better but those last two shows are too "staged" for my liking. Online I really enjoy Jay Lenos garage, Muscle car of the week on V8TV, My classic car with Dennis Gage, Classic Restos (Australian) and if you've never checked it out have a look at My Car Story with Lou Costabile.
These look great Snake, really like the colours on them so good on you for leaving them alone, Do you use flash when you take your photos ?, Id like to see the colours without flash. I nearly picked up a 68 the other day but missed out, and they are very rare to pick up over here.
