  1. Great job! What enamel clear did you use?
  2. Decant them and see how they work for you. Does Rustoleum dry pretty quickly out of the can or decanted?
  3. The Goodwood boys went to visit Richard Petty's museum and got to go for a spin in his 1970 Superbird. He was bringing it to England's Goodwood Festival for a spin soon. Lots of closeups while in the museum. Doesn't that thing sound awesome!
  4. Good to know John.. Thanks for posting.. I'm going to try it with and without Lacquer thinner and see which I like best.
  5. I knew something was wrong Michael.. I'm kinda new to all this. I'll be using the decals on the next one.
  6. All great info everyone.. Thanks! I'll report back after I have experimented 😎
  7. Thanks Tony! yeah, this was a fun build and I can't wait to do more. Do you know where we can get more decals? I've got two of these and might pick up a couple more but I believe I have 4 to 8 older kits in my stash. Most aftermarket decal sheets cost more than I paid for the old kits so let's hope the decals are still good. I was planning on dusting it up a bit because Chris HPIguy's looked so good that way.. then I was really surprised how well it turned out that I might keep it clean. That's why I didn't sand the tires. It looks a lot better in person than I was expecting. Speaking of tires. I love that they put the white lettering on the tire but it seemed to me that the wheels fit better with the unlettered side out. They did supply decals for the tires so I may use them on the next build.
  8. That looks great too! The liveries back in the day look better than modern day to me for some reason.
  9. Very cool! I love drag cars.
  10. Thanks Chris! Yeah, I did find a little but it didn't seem right so I counted it as nothing. The only info I found for thinning it a guy suggested water??? I'll be looking forward to hearing about your results. That looks good! And you didn't have to thin it? I've always thinned the lacquers I've decanted... seems to lay down better for me. You get a whole lot more paint out of these cans than Tamiya or Testor/ModelMaster. I'm thinking a thinner would have helped but would love to know which is best. My thought would be any lacquer thinner.
