      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    2016 done moebius belvedere interior shot added
    moebius kit, Tamiya white paint, great kit.  Flipped the front spindes for higher ride height. A day 2 car,  Some interior shots added, I used insignia red and roof red mixed.  Then I sprayed Future wax on sections for glossy look. A great kit.  done for an IPMS national web site review.

    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.

  13. 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
