    How about an address for Mr. Wann? Or an email? or a phone number?

    I've just stumbled across this thread and I WANT one of the Cosma Ray kits! Me and a bunch of the KC Slammers Model Car Club were at Darryl Starbird's on Saturday the 13th and I was all over the REAL Cosma Ray.

    Thinning Kustom Kolor Paints
    I still have about 15 one-ounce bottles of Kustom Kolor Paint by House of Kolor. It's that brand they sold through Wal-Mart, their website, and hobby shops. Well, I ran out of their "Airbrush Reducer" to thin out the paint for use in airbrushes. My question is... does anyone have an idea of what I can use to thin it with for spraying?

    I can still get it at a local hobby shop here in Kansas City. Too bad they quit packaging the stuff... GREAT colors!!!!

    KC Slammers Model Car Club
    The KC Slammers are now entering their 18th year in the Kansas City, Missouri, metropolitan area. We have around 35 members and we are active builders and collectors of anything that rides on wheels! The club's Heartland Model Car Nationals (18th year in June, 2009) draws in around 500 entries each year, many vendors, and prides itself on having had such nationally recognized guests of honor as Bob Paeth (master modeler), Elden Titus (Custom Car Builder and Designer), Jerry Titus (President of the Kustom Kemps of America), and Darryl Starbird (The King of Bubble Top Customs).

    The club also currently organizes and stages the model car contest for the Darryl Starbird Custom Car Show held annually in Wichita, Kansas, and the Kustom Kemps of America at their annual Leadsled Spectacular in Salina, Kansas, at the end of July each year.

    Our website is second-to-none and has many great photo albums from model contests as well as many 1:1 car events, shows, and contests. We invite everyone to visit us over at http://www.kcslammers.com .
