    Wow! I'm a bit late to the party, but this Pontiac looks fantastic! As always with your builds, everything seems to be just right. Flawless paint job and BMF work and sharp details under the hood too. Plus that it's great to see these rare kits being built, not just sitting on collector's shelf. Great Job!

    Wow, a lot of work went into that conversion! Looks like you did an excellent job with it, the bodywork looks flawless and the overall look is just right too. Nice job!
  3. W-409 added a post in a topic Tamiya TS Clear Question.   

    Well that's a problem! I don't want to strip the paint job on this particular body (Revell Pontiac Club De Mer) as it requires a lot of bodywork before painting and I have to assemble pretty much everything else before I can do the paint job.
    Nick's suggestion is good, but the problem is that I can't find any of those alternative paints here in Finland... I guess I'll ditch the idea of using Tamiya paints then and head to a local hardware store to see if they have anything that might be close. Those paints are designed for 1:1 cars but I've used them on my builds before. They're not as good as Tamiya Sprays but I can deal with them too.

    Thanks David! I'll order some of that paint and give it a try too!

    I was away for a little while and now I can see some fantastic work on this thread again! That engine looks like a work of art, in fact when you get all of the plumbing and wiring done that engine will look like it could be fired up any moment. Of course the whole chassis and body are looking fantastic as well, and that subtle weathering on those tires...Wow - they look so realistic!

    Tamiya TS Clear Question.
    I've used Tamiya TS-13 Clear several times on top of other TS-series spray paints and so far I've had no problems. Now I'm just wondering if that TS-13 clear will work on top of Tamiya AS-spray paints which are designed for aircrafts and other military applications. I need this paint color for a car body, so it will have to be clear coated so that it's glossy. So has anyone tried to clear those AS-spray paints with TS-clear succesfully?
    I wouldn't want to order those paints if they don't work with each others...

    That is very cool build! I've always liked this Comet body so I'm very happy to see finally a proper model kit of it. You did a great job turning it into a Factory Experimental car. Fantastic job with all of those details on exterior, interior, under the hood and on the chassis. There's nothing I'd change, really nice job.
  8. W-409 added a post in a topic AMT/Model King 1969 Camaro funny car   

    Wow, this looks great! I've had that kit on my hands a couple of times but never bought it. Now after seeing this one I'd like to build one as well. Excellent job getting that kit together, and I really like that color combo too. Green and Gold fit perfectly together in my opinion. Very nice and clean build overall.

    I'm a bit late, but Thanks Bruce for the kind words! They're appreciated.
    Now the next thing will be finishing my '64 Thunderbolt. Hopefully I'll find some time to work on that soon.
  10. W-409 added a post in a topic Revell Full Detail/Glue NASCAR Kits   

    Well, I'm much happier to look at a Chevy built in Australia than any new car that is built by a Japanese make.
    And those Korean "Chevrolets" / Daewoos or whatever junk they are... They are a big no-no.
    Anyway I'll just say I have zero interest for that Toyota, but I'll definitely buy one Chevy NASCAR kit when it's out. Now, back to the actual subject.
  11. W-409 added a post in a topic Revell Full Detail/Glue NASCAR Kits   

    Yep I know those cars are the same technology no matter what make the body is. The thing is, even that Toyota logo scares me away, I grew up on a family that always had "real" American Cars (here in Finland) and my all cars are Chevrolets as well. I could never imagine having a Japanese car myself. European or Japanese cars just don't do it for me... Sorry, but even if it was built in the States, the Toyota logo just ruins it in my opinion.
  12. W-409 added a post in a topic 1971 Pinto Wagon - StreetFreak/Gasser/Showcar   

    WOW! That is very cool! I really like the blue color and that panel paint job. They fit very well to the style of this build. Same thing goes with those blue tinted windows and scoop, they're just right for a build like this. Engine with lots of chrome is a nice touch too... The overall look is just perfect, and all little details just finish it off. Fantastic work!
  13. W-409 added a post in a topic 1965 Chevy Impala   

    '65 Impala is a very nice body, so great to see that you've built one! That white color fits very well on it and the chrome parts and darker panel lines make it look really good. Very nicely done as always!
  14. W-409 added a post in a topic New from Airtrax! 1941 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe   

    Wow, I've seen that build at a local Model Car Show around here and I was quietly hoping that some day we'll see a resin kit of this! Now this is some great news! Usually AirTrax is selling some damaged bodies at local show in side of selling the complete kits, so if I see a Lincoln body in there I'll be sure to buy one. I see a Lead Sled coming...
  15. W-409 added a post in a topic Revell Full Detail/Glue NASCAR Kits   

    This looks interesting! I'm more into Vintage Stock Cars, but when the Chevrolets are out I guess I'll pick up one. And if the prices drop like Tony said, I could probably buy a Ford as well somewhere in the future, but it's for sure that I'll see no Toyotas around here. NASCAR is an American sport so I'm not too crazy about seeing those "ricers" racing in there...
