  1. '74 Vega Bruce Larson USA-1_FYI Reissue Update

    great news. Now if we could get the Sox & Martin Duster and Butch Leal's Duster
  2. Mike,

    I see you talked about the Thumper Chassis build. I have heard about this in the past and cannot find it on line. Do you have a link to it?

     

    Thanks

  3. Tamiya acrylic paint ?????

    I always use Mr Color Leveling Thinner with my acrylic paints. It is a mild lacquer thinner and I have had no problem using it with Tamiya paints.
  4. Matte and Satin Black

    I know you are trying to save money but I have found nothing better than Mr Color matt and satin black paints and their primers. When you cut them 50/50 with thinner to spray it is really not that bad of a price to pay. Decanting TS paints and airbrushing them also works well, just more work involved.
  5. Lacquer clear coat

    You have to be careful of TS13 it can be hard on decals. It is a very good clear otherwise.
  6. I see that they are not taking orders again until they get caught up on orders. I know last year he did this, and after that I did get my order fairly quick after that. I have been afraid to order after last summer after hearing of more problems.
  7. Sam thanks for getting back to me. I had a talk with Sam at the NNL West this year about the need for F1 colors and he explained to me the problem of getting the proper color mixes. Don't know if I helped influence him or not but glad to hear he seams to be listening to us modelers.
  8. For those that have ordered from Gravity Colors in Spain, have you found the paint to be not the same as USA as per the letter? I need some paint for a client job and Gravity Colors USA has I feel the best paint and color match that I have used. The last time took 4 months to receive my order so I am not sure I want to take a chance again, to bad because I used to order from Matte and he was very good about my orders. I need some colors for a couple F1 cars and Splash doesn't have them and the US dealer for Zero is out of stock plus I've had some funny results with Zero.
  9. i moved to 2K clears a couple years ago and that is all i use now. Try Splash Paints 2k clear, one of the best I have ever used and you can buy a small amount to try.
  10. I used the live chat because I have had an order pending from March, I have no idea what happened but after contacting with the live chat they found my order and sent it out the next day. So anyone waiting for an order for a long time should contact them threw the chat and not email.
  11. I had (notice I said had) very good luck with Gravity up until March of this year. I have an order still pending from March and still nothing even after sending at least 10 or more emails. To bad because I really like his products and would like to be able to do more business with him in the future, but I don't see how that can happen. What I don't understand is I have been hearing about people getting orders now but a lot of people have been waiting for months like myself. How are these new orders getting out while others are not?
  12. Splash Paints LLC Order

    Just want to give Sam a public thank you. I was having an issue with how the paint was laying down and so I sent him a email and his response was in minutes. He even offered to send me a free bottle of thinner if I needed it. Nice to have vendors that care about customers, a first class guy.
  13. I don't care about a gift card, I would just like to get my paint that has been on order 4 months. I don't understand how some people are ordering paint and now getting it in a week or so and yet others have been waiting for months. I wish he would respond to what is going on like he did early this year. I have ordered from him many times over the last several years and had great service until this last order.
  14. I wonder why he is doing orders when he still has orders outstanding. I am waiting for a order I put in March, I have emailed him many times but he doen't respond.
  15. Mike, was this Gravity in USA?
