  1. Tamiya Alfa Romeo Giulia, Hard to Find?

    It is a really wonderful kit of a supercool car! If you are patient, then you'll find the kit available at decent prices. Here are some pictures of the ones I've built: http://smg.photobucket.com/user/ChillyB1/library/Tamiya Alfa-Romeo Giulia GTA?sort=3&page=1 http://smg.photobucket.com/user/ChillyB1/library/Tamiya Alfa-Romeo GTA?sort=3&page=1
  2. Heller Renault 4cv

    Very cool car. We don't see a lot of these on the forum. I've built a bunch of the Heller kits but never a 4CV. Can't wait to see what you do with it.
  3. Curb Feelers

    How about a piece of guitar string?
  4. Remodelled hobby room

    I'm a little envious. Congratulations, Gee Bee. I love the idea of using a clipboard for the instructions.
  5. Out To Pasture

    That is a really cool diorama and definitely a great way to display that kit. There are great Ferrari 250 kits available now so that AMT kit can be retired (or put out to pasture).
  6. The TS and AS paints are perfectly compatible; however, be aware that some flat paints are very flat and may take vast quantities of clear to try to make a glossy finish. I experienced this with a Tamiya AS gray (can't remember which one) and TS-13. By the time I realized it just wasn't going to work I'd wasted a lot of paint and nearly a whole can of clear.
  7. Best Citroen 2cv 1:24 kit?

    Here are some I've built: I'd advise you to avoid the Gunze Sangyo kit. It is one of a very few kits that I've simply tossed in the trash rather than waste more time, effort, and energy trying to build it into a decent model.
  8. Ferguson tractor

    Wow, that's too cool for words. That's a Heller kit, no?
  9. best brass finish?

    I'd use Model Master Metalizer brass with their sealer and/or clear on top.
  10. Pics- paint is on the Cougar.

    A gorgeous color on that Cougar. Looks like you got a great finish too. Did you shoot straight from the can?
  11. Ordering From Other Countries, Any Guidance?

    I recommend that you order from Hobby Link Japan (http://www.hlj.com/) rather than go through Amazon. They usually have the best price and are so reliable and responsive that you can rest assured that yours will be a hassle-free transaction. I received a package from them yesterday, less than two weeks from order and payment! There aren't any sorts of import duties or other customs fees for shipments to the USA.
  12. Tamiya Calsonic Impul GT-R(R35)

    A very cool project. I've built the R34 kit from Tamiya in several liveries. I love these cars and the kits. Good luck with it.
  13. Guitar color question.

    As a guitarist, I'm appalled that you post not even a single photograph of this Tele. You should be ashamed of yourself. How are we supposed to get a vicarious thrill from your purchase without a picture?
  14. A very cool idea, Chuck. I love stuff like this and your build makes me want to get the kit and do something similar. My favorite aspects of your build: the tires and wheels, and the way we perceive weight distribution. Nice work.
  15. What did you get today?

    I want to know more about this. Earlier this year I bought a '50s Classic Player Stratocaster and I love it so much I'm thinking of getting the '60s Classic Player too.
