  1. Exotics_Builder added a post in a topic AMT circa 1963 Go Cart.   

    That's an older picture I got off a Fotki site.  I would have to check the one I have in the stash, but it also was bought over 10 years ago.   If interested, best to email Norm and check availability and price.

    Scene's unlimited is a good place to start:

    Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland does the streamliner version.

    You buff first and then clear.  BMF seems to oxidize or some other reaction if not cleared and you will always get some crud when you clean the model.  It also does hide the transition and reduces the graininess from the adhesive.
    To my eye, BMF is a little too shiny for trim but the clear coat does reduce the shine a tad.

    Revell (Aurora) coupes are parts kits to me, particularly for an unusual engine or use the rear suspension for a hot rod or custom.  Interested in seeing how the Heller convertible compares to the Revell.

    What slowpokes might you be referencing?

    That kit, around here at swap meets goes for $80-$100.

    I have a 1970 Eldo down in the unbuilt stash in the basement.  Looking at the photo, it is hard to tell if anything is missing, except the obvious of a taillight (which might be in the box).  The only clear plastic is the windshield/backlight and the only red plastic is the taillights.  The "heat" warpage (or whatever caused it) would be a no-go for me as a good amount of body work would be needed to correct.  My Eldo is molded in orange.

    Aventador, Bentley's, newer Ferraris - 458, F12.  Maybe some Bimmers, although Herpa sells some

    You are not soaking in lacquer thinner are you?  You should be able to shoot through the gun though.  I have Iwata air brushes and use their Medea cleaner for actual cleaning.

    Same as far as I know.

    May I ask where you got them?  I am looking for some exotics to populate an HO layout I have in mind.
    Thanks

    Here's what the Revell 55 Pace Car looks like with the Fred Cady decals.  The 55 Pace Car are pretty thick, and the Cady much thinner.

    Just checked again, Crazy Modeler and A+ Club did some dry metallic transfers for Lambo logos, but nothing there had a Superleggera

    I don't have any Lambo Gallardo's, so can't check there.  But I seem to recollect Hobby Design did something for the Superleggera.  I don't know what it includes and whether it is even easily available if it fits your need.
