      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Been buying from them for 2 years now. Always stellar service.
  2. Dragline added a post in a topic Some more tamiya 1/12 kits   

    No worries then. I traded for the JPS so it is probably still available. There was a message problem [my fault] that caused the Matra to be spoken for initially.
     
     
    Message Ryan for details.....

    Nice build.

    Whomever built that fish market should be very proud. That thing is a masterpiece.
  7. Dragline added a post in a topic painting the grand prix   

    The best matches are Tamiya French Blue and Fourescent red. Over white primer they are a dead ringer for the Petty colors.
  8. Dragline added a post in a topic Future Polish Uncertainty   

    I've seen excellent Future finishes that were polished with [get this] DRYER sheets. You could always dip it into a light ammonia mix and it will all come off and go at it another way.
  9. Dragline added a post in a topic Hairspray weathering technique   

    You probably did a couple of things here. The top coat might be a tad thick. When you wet the topcoat it goes through to the hairspray which then becomes soluble and allows the chipping. IMO chipping fluids work better but water based hairspray does work well. Your result isn't terrible, just not as good as you hoped and it needs to be worked more. I'd let the water sit on it [perhaps a bit warm] for a bit before trying again to see if you can get the medium layer to start loosening. I've used hairspray with good results but have switched to chipping fluids from both Vallejo and Mig Ammo. They have varying levels of effect from heavy to mild. This example is certainly not a wash, it just needs to be worked a bit more.
     
    Keep working it.
