    Scale Finishes also has a standard pre-thinned clearcoat, not a 2k clear like you bought. I think being stored in plastic bottles allowed the solvents to evaporate.
    I have been use Zero Paints 2k clearcoat for years over Scale Finishes and love it, they pack theirs in glass bottles with no evaporation. You can get their clearcoat in the US from HobbyWorld-USA http://www.hobbyworld-usa.com/Store/
    You can also try Gravity Colors clear, I have some, but have not tried it yet.

    Amazing scratch building, always enjoy watching you builds come together.
    One detail on your phone, the reference picture is a modern retro touch tone, so it has the extra # and *. Fill two holes on the right above the finger stop and its all good.

    Anyone else have problems with the Ultra Chrome sticking? I haven't tried it recently, but the sheet I bought would fall off after being applied.

    Since Revell did Stacy David's Rat Roaster and with the new Bronco coming soon.... maybe we will see Stacy David's Crazy Horse Bronco.

    Since I finally went and ordered the Modelhaus '68 Coronet... we will see a new tool before I get my Modelhaus order.

    D & E Distributors in Vernon, BC bought out all the remaining stock of House of Kolor lacquer. I bought some lacquer thinner from them not too long ago, they also have many of the Kandy colors available in lacquer.

    You forgot the old Revell '57 Nomad with the opening doors, I think the last time it was reissued under the Skips or Hot Rod packaging.

    I have the MCW '57 Nomad, nice kit based on the Revell '56 Nomad/'57 Bel Air. Needs the '57 Bel Air 2-door Sedan to complete.

    I wish amt would reissue the 1/16th '57 Nomad.

    Nothing that I know of. The Revel '69 is best starting point, but you would need to remove the door vent windows and square up the rear quarter windows, then there is the different front and rear to scratch build. If you could get someone to 3D render the front and rear and have it 3D printed that would work as the fenders and hood are the same. Dash is the same as well, but the door and side panels are molded plastic style and easily scratch built.

    I was hoping for a full detail Corvette. The Bronco is a nice surprise, anyone know what year it may be, side marker indicate it may be 1970-1977. Is there much difference between 1966-1977?

    You already need to shell out some serious bucks when a Modelhaus kit goes up on eBay, can't imagine how much when they are gone for a few years. Take a look when a Shawn Carpenter Truck kit goes up for sale, outrageous prices.

    Late last night I got my order in for the '68 Coronet. I was going to wait till today, lucky I didn't.
