    I sent you a private message, Jesse.
  2. Marc @ MPC Motorsports added a post in a topic What's your favourite gloss black?   

    Do a spray test of black paints on some paper. Most blacks have a lot of brown in the pigment. Tamiya TS-14 is a "black" black with no visible signs of brown pigment. It is the best choice for black hobby paint. I know from experience that Duplicolor and most hardware store brand paints have lots of brown in the pigment.

    Bandit Resins has what you are looking for, but is is not currently in production.

  4. Marc @ MPC Motorsports added a post in a topic 1/24th scale Pro-Touring Tires and Wheels. Gauging Interest   

    Count me as an interested buyer! 3D printing and resin casting is opening up a whole new avenue for us model builders. Variety of sizes over and above what the current market provides is awesome too.

    Spend a little more money and get a Pace Paint Booth. No worries there.

    More incredible work, Tom. PLEASE have Missing Link cast this when you are finished. My parents had a 1976 LJ and a good friend had a 1976 SJ. I would welcome the opportunity to build are replica of one or both.

    I would raid the HUG reissue for a many parts as possible. Model glues are really solvents, and the solvents 50 years ago were much stronger. Also, many young builders in the day had no concept of the word "sparingly". They would use at least a half of a tube or more on each model. Lucky for me, I had a 2nd Grade teacher that taught us when it comes to glue, "a little dab'll do ya".

    Great work so far and at least replacement parts are not made of unobtanium.

    I remember seeing these in KC at the Heartland Nats a few years back. Killer builds!

    Modelhaus has it.

    They are that hard to find. They only produce limited runs of about 4 sets at a time. Usually release quarterly. Hobby Link Japan is probably the best source and you can usually pre-order new sets before the release date. Early birds get the worm here.

    Which particular set or sets are you looking for? My LHS has some in their inventory. I might be able to help you out.
  12. Marc @ MPC Motorsports added a post in a topic Landy's "1970" A/MP Hemi Dart   

    I would get the 1970 Dart Swinger resin body from Bandit Resins and use the Revell 1968 Hemi Dart for the guts.
  13. Marc @ MPC Motorsports added a post in a topic Challenger vs. Camaro: Heavyweight muscle showdown   

    Mileage will vary, but there are official NHRA certified quarter mile times for the Hellcat at 11.20 with street tires, 10.80 on drag radials. I'm biased as I own a '13 Challenger, but in real world driving experience, the Challenger wins hands down. Better styling, more comfort for all passengers. Real trunk in the back to haul the groceries. Performance numbers do mean bragging rights, but none of us drive at 10/10ths of a cars performance all day long.
  14. Marc @ MPC Motorsports added a post in a topic Kitbashing a 1972 El Camino   

    Nobody told me that. I have two of the vintage Modelhaus resin 1969 El Camino bodies that haven't been made since AMT came out with the new tool 1968 El Camino in the 1990's. I also had a body and a few parts from a previously built AMT 1969 El Camino annual and a body from an original AMT 1970 Chevelle SS from the "Motor City" series with a busted roof. I performed a nose transplant on the El Camino body to make a 1970 El Camino. This is all I have done for now.

    All of these colors are back in circulation in the US. Thanks, Tamiya!
