  1. Fujimi 911S '69 and 911R '67 are back!

    The Dino Spyder in Regular series uses a different body mold than the one in the Enthusiast series. It has a separate front lower body that has to be installed after the chassis and body are mated due to the way the underbody is molded. That makes for a problem as it leaves a seam where the pieces mate that isn't on the real car.
  2. Enamels dry by oxygen intake so if you can increase that then an enamel should dry faster. Or am I wrong in my thinking on this?
  3. Depending on the sheen and / or shade of white you want you can: 1) Spray Tamiya TS-65 pearl clear or TS-45 pearl white for a slight pearl effect. 2) Spray Tamiya TS-7 for a creamy off white then use a semi gloss or flat as necessary for the desired sheen. 3) Use flat white or white primer and then buff with your finger. Your skin oil will impart a slight gloss. 4) Spray flat or semi gloss clear over the kit white plastic.
  4. Greg, the Tamiya '66 Beetle would be the best one. Try to find one of those. The only version of the Polar Lights kit that has the sunroof provision is the Love Bug version; but it's just a wrinkled insert over a solid roof with two locating holes. The later versions have a solid roof without the two holes. And to my old eyes the side windows look like the larger 1965 versions ( I have a Spiderman version and a Love Bug).
  5. Looks like a 1965. All the versions are nice kits: multiple choice of wheels, seats, and bumpers. Only downside I see is that the tail lights are way too large.
  6. Tamiya: Toyota TS050 Hybrid Le Mans 2018

    I got the kit at a hobby store in metro Detroit.
  7. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    The Tamiya Toyota TS050 is out. I now have one.
  8. A Idea for NASCAR

    I'd be wary of dropping too much speed from the cars. I was at an ARCA race at Michigan Speedway back in the Nineties and those cars were lapping at about 165 m.p.h. They looked so slow it looked like they were dragging an anchor behind them.
  9. EPSON NSX 2005 super GT by Tamiya

    I think that's one of the easier liveries. There's that blue one with the music industry theme that looks much worse to do.
  10. Testors Spray Can seeping, anyone else have this happen?

    I grabbed a can of the One Coat (non One Coat) bronze and I noticed it was starting to seep out of the upper seam! I sprayed it out anyway and after a few moments the paint started spraying out with more pressure and went on fine.
  11. nThe engine in the AMT kit is an absolute horror. Turbocharger on one side of the engine, exhaust manifold on the other side and they're not connected! Better as a curbside or a parts donor kit.
  12. That's great news. Now we can wonder about the altered wheelbase Mopars.
  13. Ever notice that the test bodies come out great (usually better than the project you want to look great)?
  14. Unless there's a change, the Novas are dead. The GM/ Moebius licensing expired and hasn't been renegotiated by the new owners.
