  1. Revell Olds 442 FE3-X

    Amazing work, my friend! 2K Clear? Soooo shiny!
  2. NEW Round2 AMT 2018

    Titanium Gold is available as a spray lacquer now too. Ts-87.
  3. Thanks for the tip! Now I need that Donn Yost DVD ...
  4. Project - Ryan Blaney's 2018 #12 Menard's Ford

    As expected, the Testors clear polished up nicely. I used 3,200 - 12,000 grit cloths, followed by Tamiya Finish Compound. Next up, decals ...
  5. Early 60s T roadster

    I literally LOLd at the one with the guy crawling out. Great for a hearty laugh.
  6. Anyone buying Revell kits just in case?

    I’m buying kits I like. Who knows what the future will hold? “Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not.” - ZZ Top
  7. Hobby Lobby/ Michaels ?

    Yes, nothing new at Ollie’s. I checked yesterday. PM me when you need to know. I work right near Ollie’s.
  8. Hobby Lobby/ Michaels ?

    Try the AC Moore in Latham. Looking at their shelves, you wouldn’t think Revell USA was done! With their 50% coupon this week, you’re out the door for $13 - $18 per kit.
  9. Dry lakes ‘29 roadster

    Perfection! Helmet and all. Great build.
  10. Project - Ryan Blaney's 2018 #12 Menard's Ford

    Thanks Mark. That photo is about 10 mins. after spraying. It has since shrunk enough to lose that wet look. But I've used this clear over the automotive colors before, and it polishes nicely.

    I tested Model Master High Gloss Lacquer Clear on the spoon and it went well. So, per the can's instructions, I laid down two wet coats of clear (plus one more) a few minutes apart. Should be plenty to polish to a nice shine. I read on the Pactra Polycarbonate paint can that the paint is resistant to fuel, solvents, etc. So it's tough stuff. Didn't change its hue or shade with the clear over it either. Highly recommend.
  12. Gorgeous! Love it! Very cool nostalgia.
  13. Revell Gen 6 chassis color

    Tamiya makes a spray can for WWII aircraft called “Insignia White”. It’s very, very light gray. I’ve seen that suggested as a hobby alternative for the modern NASCAR chassis. AS-20 is the Tamiya number.
  14. Laid some paint down yesterday. Testors/Pactra Fluorescent Yellow over Tamiya white primer. Three coats. Waiting a week before I clear it. Can anyone confirm that Testors or Tamiya lacquer clear will work over this polycarbonate paint?

    Looks great! Bantam-esque. I like it.
