  1. 19 Weeks, 4 Days later, this detail-up set finally arrived. I had cheaped-out on shipping and had given up on having it arrive at all.
  2. Car model section starts at about 21:25.
  3. Interesting, an H & S with a Vallejo label on it. I like H & S. I have an Evolution Silverline as well.
  4. Thanks Luke. I will take a look at what colour shift combos SMS offers. I'm looking for a dark green / bark blue for the Tamiya SONAX DTM car
  5. Very nice job on painting the three bodies with colour shift paint! What brand of paint did you use?
  6. When I first saw this, I could only think that I sure hope that I'm seeing white school glue! LOL
  7. Daniel, thank you very much for the pictures and link. Sadly, that particular seller does not ship to the Great Frozen North! LOL I eventually found the set on Amazon.ca and just made the purchase. There were a couple of other sellers at a higher price point. Expensive, yes. Are good tools worth the investment? I think so.
  8. I have been using a single small-diameter, round tapered file for the same purpose. Would you please post a picture or the name pf the product that you purchased.
  9. I have had good luck with Kijiji over the past three days. All of the purchases, except the AMT Sandkat were from Kijiji. The Sandkat was from my LHS, Dailey Hobbies. Only the Tamiya Porsche GT2 was slightly started. They used old tube glue, so it was relatively easy to disassemble the pieces.
  10. It makes you wonder if the seller looked at the box art or read the description in the upper right hand corner. In any event, a great score for you Dan. Most Kijiji model car listers here believe that any used, common model car kit is worth a minimum of $40.
  11. Jonathan, when you received these kits, were you a little surprised by the size of the box for the Aoshima Zonda C12S?
  12. I really like your take on this Sunny. I especially like the wheel/tire combo. From the kit or something from BNA?
  13. Thanks Christopher for teaching me something new. I didn't know that, but I'll try to remember for future reference.
  14. it is great that you can find these Paasche brushes in such immaculate condition. I tried a search on the Paasche model M, and only came up with an eBay listing. I'm not even sure if it is in fact a Model M. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/265321178766?_trkparms=ispr%3D1&hash=item3dc65fe68e:g:hV0AAOSw1vZhR8Jh&amdata=enc%3AAQAGAAACkPYe5NmHp%2B2JMhMi7yxGiTJkPrKr5t53CooMSQt2orsStdebXPz4ZTXCT8FI9kPBhz%2FpzJ7R3T53JbEmozly9TVVMNmHER1DUle%2FGWhbM5C9MWQdHcr3MLc0b%2F1W32YcDGpzB72ydwCtFaIyRhs8DwLRrMhxGFZWge%2Fp6jqyBrPTexBO7QBwRKoteAamL%2BKUnUGptR76bHAvBQgRCsDOjsjpHsWAqeHEeUlXVB%2FFBBTD1SGEHZDLhyWBEEJ4yzgQ1goye0KKuQU0Sq%2BWbMF0nz7YF61%2FXsMY23RXqnCKroO9YFUH1lzw9XAHfYLFVGGdYzGWKyNTZfVJTTQhflg%2Bi03GWoDp8VVGeiTYyPYy2aXQqcavrEPgSXE8AFGY%2F6nOKH8MSubdvKW14gDi%2BvCU0wnyg3CeTBBXCuVTO6IghSYrmUAr0elxgpiXY31jgyg1FCS9JY4gHeT1xO1MAbD08C0RnHsFw6UU1nAP5fWHm0unKu90xgZd%2F2nmW9qT5WFdRn%2FIe10q%2Fo7%2Be1ykKQs09R2oQuch9pDYG9kAteV%2FHRMwjM7K6vGtq5GbThF5beggOmLFrJHUYRk41I1OpHA3%2BveOa%2F4I6v0JXFctXSTifwI9BVUcy0uqMM69Zol8HxmPcqVK0y8YVgRGGP%2FJlXY%2By2E0W9KTHyqIOpymctXbbNOJqQATnekzBf0H1R7VH%2FXiNeUN2%2BdXAyt9VlhGYMfeiR0MyV6o2v5uxrPZJMEkhdeckQML9CdHj%2FfYoviQRwz5kiy0PgO3y8wgDWCQ2%2Be%2BlpmaTsHdqUaKUPIAxEBk7sOuqayI9mWDa9H1%2BzzfTPMEfqn2IbShjGP7HsbMR3eBh3eNQw%2FpOJRRGNAJiXhMeyCX|clp%3A2334524|tkp%3ABFBM7JnTqstf I have never seen an address this long either! LOL
  15. The pirate kits were branded LEE, which were direct rip offs. The Ben Hobby were legitimate. Tamiya attempted to sell into the the China market by using this branding. Great score Dan. To find a finished model you just need to look for finished Tamiya 936s.
  16. Curtis, with the number of bottles purchased, you must have achieved the free shipping to Canada threshold! LOL A great addition to your paint inventory!
  17. Wow Jim, having two Ravens is quite the achievement! It is hard for me to tell, but are they a side-feed or a siphon-feed design? Getting two Paasche brushes with close to side-by-side numbers is probably a once in a lifetime purchase. I'm thinking you have read this already, but I included a link to the brief history description on Paasche's website. It seems they were located in Chicago proper when the company first started. These two brushes must be from those beginnings. https://www.paascheairbrush.com/
  18. Don't let the erroneous 1/24 scale put you off. The C1 transkit is for Revell's 1/25 2009 Challenger. Chris Hales did not always get the scale reference correct. I think it is partially, that being from the UK, he is used to most car kits being of 1/24 scale.
  19. Thanks Guido Paul, thanks for your input. A friend recommended the same thing. K & S Engineering sells a multi-pack of varied diameter pieces of tubing. I need to purchase that. On a modelers Zoom meeting last week, I mentioned my predicament. A good friend responded during the meeting by taking his punch set, and making multiple 6.9 mm disks from 0.5 mm black styrene. He mailed them to me and they arrived four days later. He also punched out numerous in scale, hex shapes for the nuts with tiny styrene dots to represent the bolts. They might just be a little too small for me to work with. I may have to stick with the Wave product that I purchased. Modelling friends like this are what makes this one of the best communities (besides this board of course!) to be part of. Now, I'm obsessing over how to get the nut/bolt pieces equally spaced at 72˚ apart. LOL Trying to add the pins to the exhaust headers did not work. There just wasn't enough gluing surface to attach the pins to. As an alternate method, I have glued the two left side header pieces together and the same for the right. I am going to now try remaking the header adapter piece so that it serves as a positive locator to the cylinder heads. The problem is that when you glue the two headers together, the ends that attach to the cylinder head adapters, do not form a straight line.
  20. I wanted to use the kit exhaust headers, so I have attempted to add pins to help with gluing them to the flanges.
  21. Lots and lots of Ignition Wire. I was very happy to find the initial spool. I decided to order a dozen more to share with friends. Each has 24 yards of 26 guage spooled goodness!
  22. Another beauty Jim. It's astounding to find a quality piece like this, in unused condition.
