  1. 99% Isopropyl Alcohol has always worked on any paint, including nail polish, I've thrown at it without effecting the plastic. Tamiyas' Plastic Friendly lacquer thinner is another more expensive alternative which works a treat when you want to remove paint quickly. https://www.tamiyausa.com/shop/finishing/lacquer-thinner-250ml/
  2. Little Motor Kar Co.

    I was just reading this on Spotlights' forum..... 1-6-2019 Dear fellow modelers, After Chrome Tech announced their closing many people recently found that the Little Motor Kar Co. does chrome work for the modeling community. We have been recently inundated with new customer inquiries. The Little Motor Kar Co has been doing chrome work since 1995. We have never advertised nor pushed to increase our footprint since it was never intended to be a full-time business. That should not be viewed as a small success as it is quite the opposite. One of the features we have always prided ourselves upon is the turnaround time for processing. We have always tried to keep it to two or, at the most, three weeks. We do not believe that it is fair to our loyal, long time customers to wait an extraordinary time for their work to be completed. At seventy-nine years old I have no intent on this becoming a full-time job. We have always done all our work in-house and that will continue to be so. Bearing this in mind any new customer work will be done on a “first come, first served” fill in basis AFTER our established customers are served. So, if you just found Little Motor Kar Co. please be aware of the priority your work must be given. It could possibly be a long wait. Now would be a great time for a younger enterprising person to seize upon the opportunity to find a processor in their area and start a chroming service of their own as others have done. There seems to be room for two. Dale Horner Little Motor Kar Co.
  3. I placed my first order with Gravity Spain last week. It was shipped four hours after placing the order last Thursday and arrived all the way down here in NZ on Monday morning. In my order was a box of Ferrari Rosso F1 and when I scan that box with my phone it takes me to the Gravity America website which I thought was odd with the apparent bad blood between them. I presume its just old stock from back when the two were connected.
  4. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    My courier just arrived with my order from gravity-colors Spain. I ordered this on 29th Nov, got an email it had shipped 4 hrs later and it arrived at my door in New Zealand today the 3rd Dec. This is the first time I've purchased from Gravity Spain and their service has been impeccable.
  5. 2019 Round2 Car Kit Releases

    And what about the Bruce Larsen Pro Stock Vega ?. Round 2 website is still showing it as coming in 2017..... Its certainly on the slow boat from China.
  6. X2 on everything Bill has said. A proper clean of the resin, a good quality automotive primer and your good to go with whatever paint takes your fancy. The only thing to be wary of is stripping paint off resin as brake fluid and isopropyl alcohol can have negative consequences.

  8. Resin Buyers Beware

    He does sell on Ebay which may be a safer option for purchasing if there was something that couldn't be purchased elsewhere given Ebays' guaranteed delivery. https://www.ebay.com/sch/got_de_mottz/m.html?item=232887730644&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 I've always wondered how some businesses that have a poor reputation for delivery can offer PayPal as a option. I'd have thought PayPal would be withdrawing their service if they were racking up persistent complaints about the business practices of a retailer.

    That looks spot on. Beemax are on a roll with product that looks right and goes together well.

  11. Upcoming Belkits...Kits

    We lost a photographer with 45 years experience down here on Saturday after being collected by a rally car. I've been spectating and photographing for 40 years and the blasé attitude many punters show to the dangers never ceases to amaze me
