Hey Guys, I know there have been other threds about this subject but I have had no luck finding them.
I have been using PlastiKote sandable for years to protect the styrene but it hase been discontinued. Much to my dismay! I sometimes use laquer and need some protestion from it as to not etch the plastic. Does anyone have any suggestions for an alternative primer that will give similar results and be compatable with the plastic? Any help would be appreciated.

I have a friend that 3D printed it for me. I forgot to mention that. I believe shapeways had a version of it.
This is the terror dog from Ghostbusters. It is about 1/4 scale and about 18 inches long. I have the mouth cut open as I want to add the teeth give it a more interesting look. I hope to light the eyes, so we'll see. I have thelarge pieces together so next will be to focus on the mouth. This is what I have so far. Hope you like it.

Great subject Mike! I will also be following it. I did mine as the car in the pilot.

Here is one I have which I think meets the criteria of glue bomb. I picked it up off e-bay a few years ago and have plans to rebuild it some day. I think it is fixable.
It's been a while but here is some progress on the K-9 Mustang. I have the chassis modified for a closer ride height to the car in the movie. The engine is neer completion,just need to install the distributor and wire it. I used Testors acrylic ford engine blue . First time I used this paint. Not bad but it came out a little dark . I think it will be O.K. after all the car has a few modifications and maintenance so it doesn't need to be factory correct. The interior is going to be a bit of work as I will be using parts from both kits. More to come.
