Have had that happen with a few cans, Testors and dupl-color as I recall. Leaks have always occured around the seam at the base of the can or the top. I always store my paint indoors. but I've always assumed that to expect all cans will meet some strength specification is not going to happen. My favorite rattle can paint is Tamiya and I've never had it happen to one of these.
Looks nice and an interesting combination of colours. Considering that this is a curbside kit based on a diecast it builds nicely, looks good when finished and was a fun build which we all appreciate from time to time.
Note that the conv C7 doesn't have the vents on the rear fenders so you could fill them and smooth the cars lines even more. This is an interesting build and certainly proves the the conv C7 looks better then the coupe. I just picked up a couple of these kits the other day but will build a coupe first. It's abetter kit then I expected. When I first got the C7 promo I was very worried but clearly this kit is not based on the same mold.
Haven't seen this kit built many times which is too bad since it is a very nice looking car. I started this kit a few years back but wrecked the paint job so after stripping it went back in the box and has stayed there. Seeing how nicely yours turned out might inspire me to take another look in the box. rob
You finished it in 5-6 hours !!! I knew I worked slow but I'm clearly slower then the tortise in this campaign. It took me nearly a month to finish mine which I did in the same scheme. While the movie is the typical boy gets girl, loses girl and gets girl back romantic comedy it is very cool to see the car cruising around Spain in the movie. One reference said it gathered huge attention every where it showed up. I thinks it looks better in Red then it does in the original Frost Blue but then I've always had a thing for red cars. Well done. rob
At least this kit is better then the promo of the same car. I wish they would supply water slide decals as well as the stick on vinyl that comes in the kit. I hope Revell does the conv as a full detail glue kit so that we can mix and match parts. BTW, strange little box but if you take the parts out you'll have to build it as I had a dickens of a time getting the parts back in the box !!
Ordered a full kit plus a half dozen assorted parts at the end of May and just got email notice at the end of last week that my order was in the mail. My original email said the order could take up to three months so I'm happy considering the quality of their products.
I'll always buy at my LHS (s) before looking to the net even if it costs me more. What I might save by buying on a cheaper online source is often negated by the additional cost of shipping. I've already developed a good relationship with the new owner of my closest hobby shop (140 miles from me) and he's willing to do everything he can to get what I want no matter how unusual it is.
Yes Snake I know that the mpc & AMT molds have been modified but as I said I'll pretend to be living in a fantasy world where they could be restored to original release condition with correct seats, vents and hoods and extras.. I suspect that someday we will see the Sunbeam kit back since it was last released in the Blueprinter series (I believe in the early '90's). If that were to happen I'd like to see it come with the 4 cylinder that was in the Get Smart kit.
