  1. Mocked up the sunny, seems I can never wait after getting a body painted, have to always see how its looking.
  2. Another Tamiya TS-14 black paint job applied to another Nissan. And couldnt wait to do a mock, applied paint yesterday.
  3. Yeah il be down to get a couple. Being a simplified kit it will be a quick easy build, over fenders molded to the body is good, no messing about hogging out wheel arch's and fiddling around trying align and fit the fenders. Accuracy and price wise, couldnt care its another cool looking Liberty Walk kit.
  4. Id say 1500 Finishing Surfacer gray would be the closet match to Tamiya Primer.. I dont consider Tamiya to be a very good scratch filler at all compared to Mr Hobby primer and surfacers.
  5. Some of the products have a bit of a description. http://www.mr-hobby.com/en/itemList.php?cId=33 The lower the number the heavier/thicker the pigment. 500 would be good to use as a heavy filler primer, like filling scratches from 320-600 grit or a modified surface that needs a light fill and levelling out. The 1000 primer surfacer you would use just like Tamiya. Just dont go to heavy or thick. The 1500 Surfacers lay down super smooth. For the box stock builders they are perfect. The higher the number the finer the pigment which results in a smoother finish and wont bury details, also very little sanding after application. Hope that helps, thats my understanding and the best I can explain. Im sure there will be someone else who is more of an expert and could explain it better.
  6. I get the idea, but will say the Charger front does not suit the Supra. I like the Charger front myself, and went about changing the front on a couple of my Nissan Skyline builds to be some what like the hidden headlight. 1:1 Skyline. The kit I used the body from. Out of the box mock. And how it looks after all the mods. The other kit same style mod. Nothing accurate or serious about either build. Just trying out ideas, maintaining and developing body work skills and having fun trying to build something different.
  7. Mr Hobby Mr Color. Have a couple options for Zinc chromate Green tone And this is the yellow version which seems to be what you are looking for. Havent tried this one yet, so no parts to show the true color outside the jar.
  8. Stopped using Tamiya primer about 6 years ago. I was in same situation couldnt get Tamiya, but seen Mr Hobby and gave it a try and havent looked back since. Fully switched over to Mr Hobby primers and finishing surfacers. I personally think they are far better than Tamiya and are available in different grades. The main ones I use. Mr Primer Surfacer 1000 is good for when you have alot of body modification work. Kind of like scratch filler primer. Mr Base white 1000 is good at covering coloured plastic and stops bleed through. Mr Sufacer 1000, is as the number implies will fill in light 1000 grit scratch's. Mr Finishing Sufacer 1500 is perfect to apply after mold line, seam removal and light body prep sanding . Its the one I use the most. Dont use the spray cans very much, prefer to buy the jars and MLT then mix up in bottles and apply with airbrush for controlled coverage and less wastage. Also use the grey. Once you get use to how to apply and understand the numbers you wont be disappointed in the results. Mr Hobby is a high quality product and Tamiya is so yesterday.
  9. Applied some Alclad chrome to a few parts. Also the Interior parts painted Tamiya TS-49 bright red, will apply the flat clear over coat at a later stage.
  10. Thanks all. Tamiya TS-14 Black.
  11. Got the ride height set and started doing the last round of body work, which is what all the little spots are.
  12. Plug wires look good from where im sitting Stephen, it's fun enough trying to get 8 in position. You done well getting 16 neatly in place.
  13. Thanks. Been meaning to post a paint mock, but got side tracked by a lot of other things. Paint has well and truly shrunk back and settled. Has slight micro orange peel, but im not going to fuss over it. So it will stay as is, no clear, colour sanding or polishing will be needed with this build.
