  1. 2019 Ferrari Expo

    Great pictures. Thank you for posting. More than a few interlopers. Porsche, Maserati, Viper, Bentley, and was there also a Jensen?
  2. Kit Wanted GT40 Fujimi

    There is one on eBay right now. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Fujimi-1-24-Ford-GT40-Mk-II-66-Daytona-Winner/163577387477?hash=item2615f8d9d5:g:LXcAAOSwUf9cfJGo
  3. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    I went to the Group 25 Model Car Flea Market and picked up a few things. I really shouldn't as my trip to the NNL East is less than 2 months awy. LOL
  4. Time For a Workbench Makeover!

    Gary, some of those bottles must be quite old. It has been a very l-o-n-g time since those larger size Tamiya bottles have been available in stores around here! LOL
  5. New 1/24 Tamiya kit?

    I'm probably reading to much into this, but "Win A Ride" indicates to me an RC product. On the up side, RC products are sometime indicators of 1/24 plastic kits that might also get released.
  6. Dyno Don 1965 Comet

    It would be nice if they came out before the NNL East rolls around. I will probably buy 2, as well as a 2nd Beswick car. LOL
  7. Dyno Don 1965 Comet

    I picked up the Beswick kit back in November at the Detroit show. I wish I had gotten a couple. Could the delay of the Dyno Don version be a result of Moebius now being in Pegasus' hands?
  8. MPC 80 Firebird Turbo Instructions

    Michael, I found a set of the MPC 1/16 Turbo Firebird instructions. I'm not sure if the turbo parts assembly is similar. https://public.fotki.com/drasticplasticsmcc/mkiba-build-under-c/mpc-instructions/1-sort/mpc-turbo-charged-f/mpcturboblackbird-vi.html#media
  9. Hey administrators! Can we get a new topic!

    Not trying to be smart aleck, but does not the pinned topic "Buying my first airbrush Questions", serve the same purpose. I think the thing that annoys me the most, is the number of people who sign-on to the form, ask a question/opinion, and are never heard from again. LOL
  10. Thoughts on having a "For Sale" section ...

    Gregg has made it more than clear as to his position on this. No selling on the board. Trading section works just fine.
  11. eBay: contest for record highest asking price

    But it has been reduced by 20%. And it has easy payments of ONLY $193 for 24 months. What more could you ask for? LOL
  12. fumi, I never thought of it this way before...you are so right! LOL
  13. Tamiya '60s F1 Kits?

    Hi Richard, Douglas and Ken have given you some options to consider. I only started following F-1 in '76 when I attended my first two GPs. I have been following ever since. My stash of F-1 kits (1/24, 1/20 and 1/12; Tamiya, Fujimi, Heller, Protar, and ?) falls into the more-than-enough-for-my-lifetime category. LOL
  14. Tom, Dale and Pete thank you for your detailed explanations. So, although flat paints have the required "tooth" for a colour coat, they unto themselves do not have the necessary adhesion characteristics required to sufficiently stick to the bare plastic surface. I will stick with purpose-made primers, before spraying any acrylic colour/top coats over them. I appreciate this forum for the generosity of the members in taking the time to share their knowledge.
  15. I paint mostly with acrylics. Is there a specific component of acrylic primer which sets it apart from using, say a flat grey or flat white acrylic paint? Does anyone just prime with an acrylic (name your colour) flat coat before applying their acrylic colour coat? My apologies for being lazy. I guess I just need to do a spoon test to find out the answer to this question. I hope all of my fellow forum members are having a happy and restful holiday break.
