    I made mine too. May not be totally accurate but it gets the job done...used clear sheets and drew it out and cut it with scissors.

    Mate' is a great guy, very trustworthy and provides the BEST paint on the market in my humble opinion. I have had many behind the scenes conversations with him about paint colors ideas for the future as well as just overall customer service. HE is definitely a friendly in the model car world. I think your issue was isolated. Also regarding the crush bottles, he has recently switched to a far more durable bottle and I think the broken bottle thing is in the past..I never had the old bottles delivered cracked or damaged, but I did hear Mate tell me that it has happened to others.. I guess I was a lucky one. However I have received the new bottle lately and I think they fix that problem.. I have nothing but good to say about Mate Mayer and Gravity Paints, he is genuine.

    Thats great to see....I'll take a look at the site, there are some things I need, but have been holding off ordering there..because I didnt know what was going on. Really cool to see it back off the ground, and people receiving orders!!

    LOL>>>>>well atleast someone didnt steal a self created avatar of yourself playing guitar......that happened to me on a music forum and the guy had the nerve to tell everyone it was him....since I am known well enough there..it was quickly fixed. Kinda like someone showing you a picture of your wife...and saying it was theirs. LOL

    Looks flawless...the engine details are very nice as always! You were able to get some stuff done the past couple of weeks....I could use some of that motivation myself.

    I missed this post Dave..I was wondering how it was coming along. Great build....I really wish I could build this clean.

    I hope the shipping goes well....I hope Ace Ventura doesnt get it!
