    I say build it!
    I too had a fairly rare Tom Daniels kit that I could have let sit on the shelf. Here's a pic of Tom Daniels Devil Chopper. Not sure how rare it is, but I have never seen any others out there.

    I've shot Alclad over a Future with great results.
    I laid down a flat black base and then shot the Future to give it a shine. The Alclad holomatic spectral chrome was shot over the Future within 12 hours. I then used Alclad's clear gloss as the final coat. It wasn't as shiny after the gloss coat but that wasn't my intention, I wanted the spectral aspect over the whole car. The clear provides a great barrier for handling and durability.

    Howard, be honest ... how many pretty girls come out to car model shows.
    And Nick, glad to see you're coming out. I may even give you a ride home if the car breaks down again.

    I'll be there as usual. I hope this new venue is better than where it's been the past several years. I liked the Legion but the space was too small and dark.
    I'll be bringing what I built this past year.

    I will be there if I finish the 2 kits I'm working on. Kingston is only a few hours drive from Whitby.

  6. Danger added a post in a topic DECANTING QUESTION - BIG 3 LACQUER-MAKERS   

    When I decant I usually put a toothpick in the jar to speed up the de-gassing process. Be careful putting it in as the toothpick causes a rapid bubbling effect that may overflow if you're not careful.

    I also set the cap on top upside down. This covers the open jar so nothing can fall in. The foam gasket that is inside the cap has melted into the paint as it's de-gassing.

    As mentioned there is Wheels and Wings on the Danforth and Hornet Hobbies on O'Conner. Hobby King is located in Markham.
    If you are in the East end you can also try Daily Hobbies in Whitby.

    Hey Belair, the club is running in Whitby. Meetings are every 3rd Wed of the month at Daily Hobbies on Thickson Rd. It's a small group of 6-8 that show up. Come on out and meet everyone.

    Here are a bunch of pics I took at this years event.

    Thanks all. I was looking for an online method but it seems I have to call in. One of the wheel uprights is missing the 2 locating pins.

  11. Danger added a post in a topic Who has used Tamiya's pink primer under a red top coat?   

    I have used the Pink Primer on a current build and the results are great. The topcoat is Tamiya Italian Red and looks a lot richer than previous builds without the pink. I'd highly recommend using it.

    Tamiya Parts Replacement
    I have been looking all over the Tamiya USA website and I can't find a place to request/order a replacement part. Lots of stuff for the RC cars, but nothing for us modelers.

    Does Tamiya offer a way to replace a defective model part? Any advice?

    Happy to hear they are still operating. The Ferrari TR250 engine is what I have been waiting for. 2 weeks to get the order!?! I guess I'll have some harsh words with the company I ordered it from.

    I have used Alclad instead of BMF on several models. The window trim on the Corvette below is Alclad.

    I have been waiting on an engine kit that is produced by HRM (Historic Racing Miniatures) for about 4 months now. I heard he has stopped casting, but I still see his ads in the magazines.The company I ordered from doesn't have any updates on when or if casting will start up again.

    Does anyone know if HRM is still operating?
