  1. New member? Ha. I was here off and on for several years. I don't need to know anything about your work. It was a simple question even for someone who thinks he's still in High School. Enough, keep your comments regarding me to yourself.
  2. Are you one of those who thinks the 65 Nova is so far off that it looks butchered? Lots of guys just love to complain though they've probably built tons of crappy models in the past. I usually work with what I get after checking out the accuracy of the kit. The '65 is a GREAT kit.
  3. No need. The kit comes with the required mounting plates...
  4. It's Magzter and you can't actually download the magazine. You download the link to the mag. If anything happens to Magzter you'll lose all of your purchases. It should be on a site like Magcloud.
  5. Wow. It even yellowed where you wouldn't have sprayed clear, like the inside of the body and fenders...very curious.
  6. You realize how old this kit is? I thought they did a good job on the tires.
  7. Follow the guy on Youtube who has 3 episodes posted so far at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYQxBFOFVGv2ykSzG8520HA.
  8. I saw s GE painted with a similar color from Tamiya over a black primer (yes black) and the color was more realistic than over a grey primer. Also you get some benefit from a guy on Youtube who is building one at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYQxBFOFVGv2ykSzG8520HA.
  9. Yes it would have been nice if they offered some help with the colors. To make it even worse they only picked a few colors for the instructions. Happy building.
  10. By the way, that info is from Slick Rydes.
