  1. 1/20 Tamiya Lotus Type 79 Martini

    Scott, this looks great so far. The Mr. Metal Color Aluminum looks a lot less grainy than the Tamiya acrylic aluminum.
  2. Isuzu Gemini

    Andre, Wheels & Wings has the first few in this new Tamiya line of bottled lacquers. They will be adding to the range as it expands.
  3. Holy Smokes!

    Agree, completely awesome!
  4. Buddy Baker's 1980 Oldsmobile 442 in 1/25th scale.

    Please see Greg Myer's January 16th post: New kid on the block?
  5. Carl, I paint with acrylics for the most part. I have a variety of different black paints, which differ somewhat in tone but mostly in sheen/lustre. Many of my paints are Tamiya brand. I use their Gloss, Semi-gloss, Flat, Nato Black, Tire Black along with a few others. By using a variety, it seems to break up what be an entire semi-gloss black interior. It is more painting, as long as you don't mind that. LOL
  6. What did you get today?

    Quentin, curious as to which Tamiya NSX kit you are starting. There are many NSX kits from Tamiya. They are all great by the way!
  7. What did you get today?

    I'm appreciative that you would do this. That Pagani is fantastic as well.
  8. What did you get today?

    Dann, that would be awesome.
  9. What did you get today?

    Dann, to heck with the collectors. I for one, would love to follow along when you build this classic Airfix kit!
  10. What did you get today?

    Dann, thanks for your your recommendation and the confirmation of their durability. I bought a tube of Old Bronze at my lhs. They are a little expensive at $18 a tube after tax. It will be interesting to compare with Vallejo's Real Metal Color acrylic line.
  11. Stock up on Humbrol Paints now!

    Thanks Joe and Christian for the info.
  12. Photo-etch mesh

    Dann, I recall seeing some sheets of mesh at a lhs that specialized in Gundam style kits. I believe that the mesh was made by the Japanese company Wave. This was a couple of years ago. Not sure if they have different opening configurations. I would suggest doing a search on either Hobby Link Japan or Hobby Search, looking at the Wave product line. I hope this helps a little.
  13. What did you get today?

    Thanks Cameron for that information. Definitely correct in that pigment scale can have an impact. I have a few tubes of Winsor and Newton colours. I think I will buy some matched colours made by Abteilung to see if there is any discernible difference in pigment or consistency.
  14. What did you get today?

    Cameron, I have looked at those Abteilung oil paints at a my LHS. They are far more expensive that getting a name brand oil paint such as Winsor and Newton. Even an art supply retailer might have their own house line of oil paints. Why did you opt for these? I am also curious as to the ease of use of those AK True Metals.
  15. Stock up on Humbrol Paints now!

    Just curious Christian, does Rustins manufacture the Humbrol line of paint, or do they serve has a warehousing facility?
