  6. Old Coyote added a post in a topic Correct shade of green Jimmy Means Turtle Wax rides   

    The green I used building the Turtle Wax Grand Prix was just Testors Green Enamel from the little 1/4 oz jar. Thinned and put through my airbrush over a light gray primer. Don't know if it's totally correct, but it looked close to me. By the way, this car was built over 25 years ago with JNJ decals, Testors enamels, and rather limited building skills

  10. Old Coyote added a post in a topic Amt vs R/M Nascar kits   

    I prefer the Revell/Monogram kits over the AMT kits for a trio of reasons. As mentioned, the tires and wheels were more in line with the Bassett and Aero wheels which were being used in Nascar at the time. Second, I felt the Monogram engines were much more representative. And third, AMT never refined its chassis/roll cage to reflect the changes that the cars were going through.
    There's nothing really wrong with the AMT kits, they build up rather nicely (with the exception of the rear window on the Olds Cutlass }. I just feel the Monogram kits built up into a better looking representation of a time period Nascar.
    MarkJ has a good idea on blocking paint and color bleed through. I'd give that a try if I were you.
     
    Monogram

    AMT

    Just my opinion, I think the Monogram looks more realistic
