  1. I have been using their paid account for a while with no problems. Some people have told me that they copy the link when they post into the forum, but what I do is open the image in Fotki, right click and select copy and then go into your post, right click and hit paste.
  2. Question about dust control

    I think he is talking about one of these. That is a great idea with a few holes in the bottom so the paint can gas out.

    I am with everyone else. The prices are great, but shipping is slow. I use scale hobbiest because of the slow shipping. They are about the same price a ship really quick.
  4. Scalefinishes?

    I just got an order last week. It took about 2 weeks from the time I ordered until I received it.

    Sorry to hear that. My condolences.
  6. Masking Tape Help

    Thanks, I wonder if that may be some of the problem. The base yellow is auto lacquer. I thought the two were ok together as long as they were dry.

    I think I am going to stop at the LHS and pick up some lacquer before I redo it.

    Yea its enamel. I had a bottle of MM Classic black left over that I figured I would use up. I'll try the clear coat and light coats of the black and hopefully it comes out good..
  9. Masking Tape Help

    Thanks guys. I do have some pinstripe tape that I will try and I'll put a mist of clear down before the color. Hopefully this will be the last dip in the pond.. I hate to just paint them black because it will bother the heck out of me knowing they should be the yellow.
  10. I wanted to see if anyone can give me some hints or anything to help with masking of for paint. I am working on a 1970 Buick GSX hood and this will be the third time in the Purple Pond. Originally I thought I would only need to mask off for the hood scoops and the main black on the hood and then use the decal for the center arrow. Then I realized the decal that matched the paint pretty good would not sit down when I tried to apply it. I am running into where the tape does not lift off cleanly so if anyone has any tips I would appreciate it. This time I tried BMF but ran into the same problem as the Tamaiya tape.

    I do support my local shop whenever I can, but it is a half hour drive and sometimes it is just not convenient to make the drive.

    I always flip between hobbyinc and scale hobbiest. Sometimes hobbyinc is cheaper, but a lot of the times scale hobbiest is a few dollars cheaper.
