  1. Dig this build, nice work.

  3. I'll be pulling up a chair, great start.
  4. Really looking forward to watching this progress and develop.

    That's a huge compliment coming from a builder who takes great care and pride correcting the flaws you do. So thanks for that Dan. I appreciate it. Thanks Mike, I really hope it all comes together in paint. It will look black in pictures, but will actually be Tamiya NATO black which is a super dark flat green, it will be cleared with gold pearl. The finished paint job will have another twist but I'll hold that until later. I think I have figured out what to do with the back, just need to scratch it up. Thanks for all th interest.

    Thanks Mike, glad you are enjoying the progress. A few more tiny mods. The centre ridge on the cockpit canopy, I also repositioned the two window struts a bit farther back and gave them a slightly steeper rack towards the back. The rear fenders still did not look right, and continue to look out of place as they always have. So with a deep breath I decided to add some .030 triangle ridges. The silly rear louvers have also been removed. I have yet to settle on what to do with the entire back lump. Sooooo ugly and out of place, but I guess it did tie into the original crappy design of a cartoonish looking vehicle.

    That is one clean crisp looking build, really nice, love all the detail.
  8. Now that is different.
  9. This is very cool. Very well executed, with some great details.
  10. At the very least you now have a definative cause. For what it's worth I appreciate you taking the time for posting and sharing all your troubles and findings. Too bad mailing/shipping is soooo dam ridiculous I'd gladly seal it for you with 2part poly and send it back to you.
  11. Good looking build, looks like the decals gave you some fits. Very nice work on the wheels.
  12. There are a number of them on evil bay right now.
  13. Duplicolor makes a self etching primer that would work.

    You are a building machine. I agree with the other posts, your skills are developing nicely. Best build yet.

    Thanks Mark. I have had the same thought.
  16. Interesting Mike. Waiting on the edge of my seat for the results. I have read so many possibilities of the cause my head is spinning. One solution would be to strip it back then seal it with 2prt poly, if you have any.
  17. Really great looking work Guy, the colours are amazing.
  18. Cool work dude, different but cool.
  19. That turned out great. Nice work on the interior.
  20. That is one sweet looking build. Nice detailing on the wheels.
  21. I've been curious about this too. So I did my own searches with little to nothing substantial. High humidity keeps coming up, which is why I mentioned it. You said the primer was dry so it couldn't be anything on the shell, which you had expressed concern about. It's defiantly a perplexing issue, and one I would like to know the reason for it. Stripping it is always an option.
