    Is that the Revell kit? Does it come with stock body panels and tail lights?

    I've been checking out alot and am finally thinking of purchasing one. They're really expensive so I wanted to stop be here and see what everybody thought of AUTOart. From the pictures they look extremely detailed. Are they worth the high cost? Will I be dissapointed by cheap looking head/tail lights that look like walmart diecasts? Is there anything that needs improving, or do these guys pretty much nail it? Any help or advice is greatly appreciated, thanks.

    I was thinking about buying a couple aoshima kits that come with engines. 2 different AE86's. Are the engines included the ones that just display on an engine stand, or are they actually in the engine bay? Thanks.

    Just saw it. Great movie.It takes place timewise between 2 Fast 2 Furious and Tokyo Drift. Awesome mix of cars, something for everybody. Different from all of the other movies to in a good way. Tokyo Drift was my favourite as well, until I saw this one. Oh and another forced lines or bullspit with characters talking about their bad throttle response and listing off their mods like they're reading from a catalog. No extra scenes after the credits either, so you don't gotta wait around. Hope I didn't spoil anything.

    Mettalic Paint
    Is there a brand of paint with small enough flakes that the metallic looks to scale? I don't want every car I paint metallic to look like a low rider with giant metal flakes. Thanks for any help.

    Carbon Fibre Decal Templates
    I have an Aoshima S15 that I want to give a carbon fibre hood. How do I do it? Do I just cut out a square big enough to cover the hood, and then trim it? Is there a way to make a template? Is there a website with random templates? Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

    Subaru Impreza STI S204 orange colour?
    Subaru released a limited edition Imprezza not to long ago with this awesome orange colour. It was kind of mangoey...I guess. I think the car was called S204. I think it had white wheels to. If anybody can posta picture i'd appreciate it. I think it was from the 2005-2007 body style.

    What's the difference if any between these F50's?
    I was thinking of picking up one ofe these F50's...The white boxed one. What is the difference? The black boxed one looks like a premium version. Are these the exact same kits with different boxes for re-issues? Thanks for any help.

    Paints:sets...types...advice, etc
    Ok i've just recently picked up modeling again...well I was never really into it heavily, but that changed when I found out about Tamiya,Aoshima and Fujimi. Anyways....back in the day I had one of those orange rotatable paint stands from Testors...that came with all the tiny bottles of paint. I haven't seen them in stores either. I've recently picked up a few Tamiya/Fujimi kits and wanted some advice on paint. I'm asking for advice specifically on all the parts besides the body and chassis(if you have good advice throw it my way anyway). Is there a current/modern equivalent of that orange spinny paint rack? If I can find one, is it worth picking up? Should I just but the tiny bottles of the colours required for each kit, and just build up my supply that way?Is there one specific brand of paint that stands above the rest? Should I use enamel or acyrlic...or laqeur? What are the pros and cons of each? Should I just use brushes, or is it worth my while even as a beginner to invest in an air brush, or is thta only necessary for bodys and other large parts...once I get more experience. I don't really know where to start paint wise...and I figured this is the best place to ask...some of the painting i've seen in pictures is amazing...and intimidating. I realise this is a big question as if you want to link me to a website no problem. This board is awesome, thanks alot for any help.
