    Tamiya Subaru BRZ
    Can anyone tell me if the Tamiya BRZ coupe has a left hand drive option?

    Ever since I got one of those magnified led lights and a set of really fine liner brushes, I've been amazed at what I can do to stuff like that...

    Sitting at a stoplight at an I35 overpass in Schertz, TX, this morning, some sort of Ferrari made a left in front of me (don't know my Ferraris like I should, so I don't know what model--wouldn't even have been sure it was a Ferrari except for the yellow emblem on the fender and the sound as it took off). Still waiting at the light and a late '70s Pontiac Firebird Trans Am went by going the other way. Beautiful deep orange metallic with a gold firebird on the hood, snowflake wheels--very sharp.

    Beautiful, Harry...is that more antique bronze paint? Very elegant!

    spray can clear (gloss)
    I've been building models for a long time, but painting has always been my weak spot, so I'm always learning. What I'd like to ask is what techniques you use to spray clear out of a can? One heavy coat? Or mist, then heavy? What works best for you, and what brand? Thanks y'all...

    Revell '99 Cobra
    Revell must really have a lot of confidence in me to expect me to install that tiny mustang in the grille of the '99 Cobra model. I did get it glued in, but the poor little guy is now missing his legs. I think I'm going to need a squad of 1/25 mechanics to assist me with an increasing number of miniscule parts in models today.

    I've had good luck with Bleche White--it used to be branded as Westley's, but it has another brand name now, but still "Bleche White". If you'll do a search with the question, you'll find many options for stripping paint.

    Patience, Snake, patience. We've gotten a couple of good ideas already, and I'm sure we'll get more.

    Bill: where do you find Upol? I've never heard of it before, but I'm willing to give it a try, as well as the Krylon and Walmart spray. Thanks everyone, this is what I'm looking for.

    Angel--since mine is an old MPC from the last century, I imagine it'll pry apart pretty easy. Meanwhile, anybody got any ideas on clear coats?

    I was young and naive, what can I say? One of these days I'll dip it and paint it again...
  14. berr13 added a post in a topic Recommendations for enamel clear coat   

    Well, yeah, since I use enamels a lot. The only yellowing I've noticed is on an MPC '74 Barracuda that I painted white and clear coated back sometime in the '80s...

    Recommendations for enamel clear coat
    Can you guys give me some recommendations for a spray enamel clear coat? I've been using Testors, but I'm having a little trouble finding it anymore. Thanks
