    The Diablo GT announced last year, hope we finally get a Huracan. But they could get more life out of the Aventador and release an Aventador J

    I would like to see Moebius do multiple years of both Plymouths and Dodges from this kit.

    I use one of the larger pea size shot for slingshots. I drop one in every bottle I buy, works great.

    There is one on eBay right now showing the contents http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/MPC-MAGNUM-GT-II-CUSTOM-DODGE-1-25-1-25-Model-Car-Mountain-VINTAGE/381288093237 . I had one of these in my collection about 20 years back and got rid of it. What an ugly kit.

    This hobby design set has the logo on a decal.

    I also like having the holes available, but flashed over.

    Thanks Jimmy!  I have some resin from SMH, good stuff... I will check them out. 
    Btw, anyone know the correct colors for the body and frame? I am assuming hok oriental  blue kandy for the body. The frame looks turquoise in some pics, powder blue in others.

    But the complete kit comes with resin body, PE, white metal engine parts, turned aluminum and resin wheels, tires, decals and more.

    I wish I could have ordered more stuff, they some great stuff. With the poor Canadian dollar my kit came to $130.

    Not sure how many they will get. They went on sale this weekend at Scale Production and sold out yesterday. I don't know if they are releasing more. I ordered mine on Monday.

    Thanks for the info. I need to start tracking down some parts.

    1969 Jungle Jim Nova?
    I have been wanting to build a 1969 Jungle Jim Nova for some time. I am looking for recommendations on what parts to use. I understand the Polar Lights Funny Cars have the best chassis, which Polar Lights kit do I look for that has the correct chassis for the Nova? Who makes a suitable resin body for the Nova? Any other information would be appreciated.

  13. Mike Chernecki added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Finally, after searching for a few years without luck, Scale Productions re-released it's 1967 Mustang "Eleanor" Transkit and I bought myself one. Nearly sold out after going on sale this weekend.

    A few tips:
    - without a tank your compressor will cycle continuously 
    - a siphon feed airbrush needs more pressure than a gravity feed to get the same result
    - when adjusting your pressure,  try with the trigger depressed and adjust while air is flowing. Your gauge will show a higher pressure when no air is flowing. 
    - also, I don't not think you can get more than 10-15 psi continuously without a tank from those small compressors 
    - Vallejo paints tend to clog the airbrush quickly and need constant cleaning/flushing when spray degrades
    - are you using Model Air or thier Game Color (or similar). Any vallejo  with air in the name is ready to go, thier others are very thick and need to be reduced quite alot.
    - practice with different air pressures and paint viscosities  (thinner/thicker) until you find the sweet spot for your setup
  15. Mike Chernecki added a post in a topic Paasche Talon TG-3F air leak FOUND (see page 2)   

    You will love the gravity feed. I have several models of Badger Airbrush, but after buying an Iwata HP-C Plus, I haven't touched my old Badger airbrushes. After I bought the Iwata HP-C Plus, I bought an Iwata Eclipse HP-BCS. I used the BCS once, I hated going back to the bottom feed and haven't touched it since. The HP-C Plus comes with a 0.3 mm tip and I use it for everything: acrylics, enamels, automotive lacquer, basecoat and acrylic enamels and 2k clear.
