  1. Tamiya make a decal adhesive which may help. I've got some here and found it effective. https://www.tamiya.com/english/products/87176/index.htm
  2. I've got the last release here and its got the slicks and only the drivers seat. At some point in the past Tamiya was offering the treaded tires separately. The missing Dunlop and Shell decals in the latest release are available from Tabu Design
  3. I was just at Gravity Colors USA website and saw this notification....
  4. Detail Master also make photo etch surfer pedals.... https://www.detailmaster.com/collections/etch-parts/products/dm-2200-custom-foot-pedals
  5. That one is 21 and a half inches wide/ 13 and a half inches deep/ 17 and a half inches high. It has three shelves with each shelf taking up to 6 cars side on and 2 face on.
  6. You could have a look around for acrylic food display cabinets as they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. The one I have here is completely dust proof and when you work out the number of cars that can be fitted inside it worked out far cheaper than buying individual cases.
  7. I have only ever air brushed Molotow myself and was always perfectly happy with the results but once it turns grey I've found its no longer fit for purpose
  8. We had a thread running on this topic recently. Myself and others have experienced Molotow going off.....
  9. ebay seller crazycar19 sells a set of 5 hand laced wire wheels for $135 to suit this kit. I believe this vendor is Fernando Pinto of FPPM model kits. I have a set here and while expensive they are excellent quality quality and a vast improvement on the kit supplied rims.
  10. Some rims have just rolled in from eBay seller oleks-dmitr. Excellent quality and quick delivery
  11. Molotow going off has occurred to others on this board and I've experienced it myself. I had bought both of these refills together about 18 months ago and while the one to the right had never been opened the left one had been partly used and has turned to a gunmetal grey.
  12. Not my video Josh. All I did was link it here. All thanks goes to the Barbatos Rex You Tube channel which has dozens of similar comparison videos. It's well worth checking out. I obtain my E7 clear off Ebay and placed an order just last week for their chrome and specialty paints. Tracking is showing it has shipped but delivery time will be uncertain especially living down under.
  13. This video that compares all the clear coats has just gone up on YouTube. I had always found Alclad and Molotow both reacted the same to clear coating.
  14. If you scroll to the bottom of the Slixx home page and click on the image of the decal sheet on the printing press it takes you to a video on their Facebook page. https://www.slixx.com
  15. X2 on everything Bill has said. I just used lacquer thinner to clean my airbrush after using the sealer. The sealer is ready to use from the bottle and requires no thinning just like the Molotow. Both the Molotow and the e7 sealer need to be sprayed wet. Provided you give the Molotow at least a week to dry you can get away without the sealer provided you carefully handle the painted parts with dry clean fingers but it does give a longer term protection.
  16. I had been reading positive things about e7paints chrome sealer lately so I went ahead and purchased a couple of bottles off Ebay. They have now arrived and today I sprayed some over Molotow I had sprayed a week ago without doing any surface preparation of any kind. The manufacturer describes it as a synthetic resin coating and its the only clear coat I have sprayed to date that doesn't effect the shine of Molotow in a perceptible way. The part on the right has a coating of this chrome sealer while the left side is just plain Molotow. I just sprayed one wet coat and I've found I can now handle my Molotow painted parts as much as I like without seeing any of the usual loss of shine that can occur.

  18. I bought these two Molotow 30ml refills at the same time and from the same vendor about 18 months ago and the one to the left was about 2/3 used and the one to the right had never been used. Both have always been kept together in a cool dark place and both have kept the same consistency. As the photo shows when I went to use it today the previously used refill on the left has gone off and become just a silver paint. No amount of stirring or shaking has any effect. It would be best to buy just what you need and try and use it all up promptly. I haven't noticed any deterioration to date on items I have airbrushed with Molotow in the past
  19. My order from the always reliable Gravity Colors Spain has just shown up here in New Zealand after placing the order only six days ago.
  20. Impressive but it sounds just like my Traxxas R/C car.
  21. I've always just used Bostik Blu Tack. https://diy.bostik.com/en-NZ/products/stationery-craft/blu-tack
  22. This 300+ page forum has been going since 2004 and is an archive of old photos of the 935 in its many guises over the years. http://forums.pelicanparts.com/porsche-911-technical-forum/144507-more-935-favorite-photos.html
  23. Scale Motorsport are re releasing their Super Detail kit for Tamiyas' 1/12 scale Porsche 935 for those with really deep pockets... https://scalemotorsport.com/collections/super-detail-kits/products/porsche-935-big-scale-super-detail-kit No mention of price from Scale Motorsport but Spot Model are listing it.... https://www.spotmodel.com/product_info.php?products_id=55048 I bought one when it was originally released back in 2003. I can't remember what it cost by the time it arrived here back then but it was so much I chose to forget that quickly. It is in a class of its own as far as quality and detail goes but the cost could be the constraining issue for most.
