  1. Your favorite manufacturer of 1/24 kits

    My first response would be Tamiya for their parts fit quality but I've become soured by what's left out of some of their engine compartments.But I see Fujimi, Aoshima, and Beemax as being co-equals in quality.
  2. It almost looks like spatter paint.
  3. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    This past Saturday I went to a local IPMS show and picked up 4 kits- a Heller Porsche 917( the Martini livery, same as the Testor re-box,), a Monogram Lola Indy car, the Revell re-box of the Accurate Miniatures Corvette Grand Sport, and an Entex Ferrari 312T3 (which, on the box says 1/25th scale and on the decal sheet says 1/28th scale!) along with some decals. If you haven't ever gone to an IPMS show, try it. Sometimes you can find some real deals as the vendors don't always know what they have.
  4. There has been a vendor who, for past shows, had wanted his tables on the back wall in the contest area. Now he wants his area moved so we are going to expand the contest area and use his former space as more contest table area ( right now we're thinking that's where the dioramas will be displayed but that may change) . As a late announced bonus we are scheduled to have a former AMT wood pattern department employee bring some of his items that he saved from his days there.
  5. The Fall show ( Motor City NNL #15) is November 10, 2019. Main theme : To the 9s-models of vehicles built in years ending in "9". Sub theme; "Kings of the road"- Big rigs and other heavy duty on road trucks. Cult theme- 50 years of IMSA.
  6. Have you tried shaking the bottle? If not, try that first. If so, then, yes, it will thin with water.
  7. The Detroit Area Auto Modelers presents the Motor City Madness judged contest and toy show on March 31st, 2019 at the Macomb County College Sports & Expo Center in Warren, Michigan. The toy show tables are sold out already. We cut the number of tables down by 6 so as to make access to the model contest a little bit better ( there will still be over 315 tables of goodies). Admission to the event is still $5.00 and there's NO extra charge to enter models into the contest. We're the biggest show in the Midwest- come and see why it's been impressing attendees and participants.
  8. Revell 68 Chevelle availability

    I bought mine on February 19th at Hobby Lobby. They're out there.
  9. Molotow Chrome Questions

    It's heaven sent for vent window frames and other small mouldings, not so much for large areas like bumpers. It's better over dark colors, not so hot over silver or other light colors.
  10. Old decals

    After sun bleaching the decal sheet you can overcoat it with a lacquer clearcoat. Testor One Coat (non one coat) is a good one to use, old formula Tamiya TS-13 is not.
  11. AMT restored the '65 GTO and '69 Torino from their Mod Stocker versions( with varying success) so the Skylark and the Delta 88 COULD be done with a big effort on AMT's part.
  12. Testor Wet Look clear or what used to be called "One Coat" are good choices. I'm told that since it was reformulated, Tamiya TS-13 is safer to use over decals than it was in it's older formula ( no personal experience with it yet).
  13. Still no sign of the '29 roadster or the '30 coupe. Hmmmmmm.
  14. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    I've had a mini buying binge lately. Over the last week I bought an AMT '50 Ford, '65 Grand Prix, and '40 Ford sedan. Then I bought the Tamiya Ford GT, a Hasegawa Zakspeed( "lacks speed) 891,and a Hasegawa Mazda 767B. I'm done for a while ( maybe). Tony( member of Styrene Junkies Anonymous)
  15. If Revell IS doing a '69 Chevelle I wonder why they didn't take a lesson from the '68/ '69 Charger and leave off the marker lights on the Chevelle. One less thing requiring a new tool-unless they're going to make only one run of the '68 and forever alter the tooling (ala the '68/ '69 Dart). Hmmmm.
