      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Is the Duplicolor Sandable Primer lacquer based?
    Have you used the Duplicolor Primer Sealer?  Is it thin?

    Has anyone used acrylic urethane over Tamiya primer?
    Will it bond well to the Tamiya primer?
    I did a test and it seems OK but if anyone has done this let me know.

    Yuri, Beautiful job!
    Did you sand or remove the chrome in the center of the grill before you painted on the body color?
    Where did you get the decals for the instruments in the dash board?
    Mike.

    Bob's Paints?
    I might be getting some paint from Bob's Paints.
    What prep needs to be done to use Bob's Paints since they are PPG lacquer?
    What thinner(s) can be used to thin the paint?

    Nice job Chris!
    Did the Hobby Design Herbie decals include the license plate decals?
  8. crowe-t added a post in a topic Evergreen Clear Sheet Styrene vs. Plastruct Clear Sheet Styrene...   

    It has just a slight bumpiness(texture) that seems to be in the plastic.  It isn't 100% smooth.  Maybe that's the way it's supposed to look???
    I tried polishing some of the bumpiness out and it still looks about the same.
    Has anyone used the clear styrene from Plastruct?

    I took the paper off and it has a very slight bumpy look.  Maybe there's a film I didn't notice.  I'll check tomorrow.
  13. crowe-t added a post in a topic Evergreen Clear Sheet Styrene vs. Plastruct Clear Sheet Styrene...   

     Which ones do you have, Plastruct or Evergreen?

    Excellent job Ryan!  I really like your take on this kit and I love the tow rig.

    Evergreen Clear Sheet Styrene vs. Plastruct Clear Sheet Styrene...
    I got some Evergreen Clear Sheet Styrene and noticed it has a slight bumpy texture.  It's very slight but it's there.
    Has anyone noticed this?
    Does anyone know if Plastruct Clear Sheet Styrene has any texture or is it completely smooth?
