  1. Diablo GTR

    Hi everyone, I'm building a Lambo Diablo GTR and was wondering if anyone knows about the carbon fiber. Specifically: 1 - Is the entire rear wing carbon fiber or is is just the two side fins. In the picture I've found I can see the pattern on the fins but not the main horizontal piece 2 - The front and side lips; are they exposed carbon fiber or painted grey? 3 - The rear light assembly appears to be painted grey rather than carbon fibre. Can anyone confirm this? Cheers
  2. Airbrush gear

    Hey there, Sorry for the lack of reply. Have been busy with new job and moving house. I'd be open to a kit that is of similar worth. That being said it was my first airbrush so I'd have to recheck that it is functioning before I could trade it in good conscience. My cleaning method used to involve more aggressive solvents than necessary. Michael
  3. Airbrush gear

    Hi all. I've got some airbrush gear to trade if anyone is interested in that stuff. BT010 - IWATA BRAIDED AIRBRUSH HOSE 3M 1/4 X 1/8 (NEW) Paasche Airbrush - VL-SET (USED) Mods please delete if this is't appropriate. I know most people post kits but I haven't seen anything against this unless I missed it.
  4. Trading post site?

    Hi everyone. Is there a website anyone is aware of for listing car model stuff? www.eModelCars.com has apparently gone down. Looking for an Aussie site if possible. Otherwise Ebay/Gumtree will be the go to. Listing a few things I bought incorrectly
  5. NEW 1/24 TAMIYA AMG GT3

    Love it. Just ordered this one for myself too. Spectacular body work on yours
  6. Mitsubishi GTO - Tamiya

    Thanks Ian. Yeah its a scary process trying to get a perfect shell. The S15 I'm building has had 6 coats of primer (with sanding in between) in an attempt to get a good finish. Aoshima plastic is definitely worse than Tamiya's. Keep building peeps!
  7. Touching up flocking

    Thanks for the input. I'll have to trial that method one day. Been getting awesome results with paint method so far but always open to new techniques.
  8. Hi everyone, Not sure if this has come up before but today I came across a new problem. My paint used to adhere the flocking dried too fast and so the flocking wasn't thick enough and the sheen of the plastic below was visible. Turns out you can touch up flocking if using enamel paint as the adhesive and it actually looks even better than normal, especially if you want a thicker film of the flocking agent. Not sure how it would work if the initial layer has fully cured though. The nice thing is that the initial layer of flocking absorbs the new paint and prevents runs! This is probably something you experienced modelers know but for me it was a nice surprise to learn. Michael
  9. Oh man I was sooo tempted to buy the 1:12 but you can buy so many 1:24 for that price!!! Maybe if I get a pay rise

    I never really thought of using other sales sites like Ebay. Thanks. I did check car sales (aussie site) but that's it. Good idea.

    I decided to pass on placing the wire (I may have forgotten to do it lol......)
  12. Hi everyone. I decided to try straining without success. I did return the paint but they said they wouldn't open a new white pigment so I went elsewhere to get my mix. The second shop gave me beautiful quality but although the colour isn't quite perfect. However Im content with this colour. Not quite factory but not bad by any means. Cheers
  13. Hi everyone, Today I went to the local auto store and got some auto paint mixed up. Problem is that there are white specks of unmixed paint that are only visible once you start spraying. I know they aren't coming from my airbrush and if you press on them they do squish and leave a white streak (i.e. they are definielty from the paint having unmixed specks). I have tried shaking for 5mins and suing a drill to mix without success. My question is should I try straining this or ask them to mix a new batch preferably with a new tin of their white pigment? Cheers
