    Brad, is that the excellent Ed Fluck cab body ?  Chassis from what kit?  pick up bed is from AMT ?  I am making the Fluck body with Revell Maz chassis, but having some difficulty fitting the bed- I've got a generic resin copy of the AMT bed I think. Thx.

    tamiya lacquer spray and unprimed bodies
    I've heard people say you can spray (rattle can) Tamiya lacquer acrylics (color coat) directly on a plastic body, no primer.  Also that it helps to polish the body as well- rubbing compound ? or sanding cloth to what grit (6000, 8000, 12000)?  Any experience ??  Thanks in advance.

    gloss over primer
    OK, I'm doing an all white car, and wondering why not just use Tamiya white primer (fine), sand as needed, and then spray clear gloss over the primer.  The clear gloss will not attack the primer. 
      Interested in the pluses and minuses of this... before I actually do it...   Thanks.

  10. stevez added a post in a topic First look - Production version Moebius 65 Plymouth Belvedere Sedan   

    just got mine in mail.  The chrome sprue is warped but doesn't look like any of the parts are warped.  I noticed the body and tires are not enclosed in plastic wrapping, all other parts are.  The body is VERY, very, very glossy and smooth, beautiful.  My only question is does paint take to this super smooth plastic ???  Of course I will be light sanding and removing any seams (not many at all).  So hopefully it will take to Tamiya type gray primer.

    39-40 ish Lincoln Zephyr,
    68-70 super bees, roadrunners etc-  the Mono and AMT stuff just doesn't rate with the latest from Moebius  (hope someone from Moebius sees this).

    appreciate the input, I thought the PL body was a bit too straight, but I'll build as is. THANKS

    polar lights mustang funny car body
    I've got the gas ronda version and was comparing the box cover picture of the real car to the model body, and the model body just does not seem to have enough curve on the hood, roof and rear deck.  Anyone notice this ?  Is the Comp resins 69 Mickey Thompson Mustang FC more realistic ?? Thanks !
