    Thanks for posting the pictures!  I remember following the blue van build.  That was a fun build to watch.

    Thanks, I'll give their paint a try.  
    Do you have any pictures of your cars painted with it?

    Paint from Paintscratch.com? Any good?
    I might try some paint from Paintscratch.com.  It says on their website it's Universal Basecoat and handles like lacquer paint.  They say to thin it with lacquer thinner?
    Is this paint any good for airbrushing?
    Are the Paintscratch colors authentic factory colors?

    This aluminum one in the above picture looks like the one from X-Acto.  
    Has anyone used the Zona thin slot aluminum miter box?

    Which one did you buy?

    Zona makes a thin slot aluminum miter box.
    Has anyone used this one?  The thin slots should hold a razor saw better.

    The Easy Miter Box from Midwest says it's injection molded.
    It's either the X-Acto or the Miter Rite from Micro Mark.  I was looking for a more affordable option but the Miter Rite looks real nice.

    I see there are some economically priced miter boxes from X-Acto, Midwest and Zona.  
    Are these any good?  The Easy Miter Box from Midwest looks nice.

    Futurattraction.com has a really nice B&M Pro Stick shifter that's resin and photoetch.  2 shifters come in the pack for a great price too.

    Chris,  Excellent review!  You were informative and kept it moving along.  I wish all reviews were this good.
    It seems like a nice kit but a bit too toy-like but I'm sure that's what Revell is going for.  I have a Polar Lights Mystery Machine I just finished that I'll post some pictures of soon.  Now having seen the Revell Mystery Machine I feel the shape of the original tooled Polar Lights kit looks a bit closer to how it looked on the cartoon.  However I do like that the rear doors aren't hinged on the Revell kit.  When I built mine I sealed the doors closed to look less toy-like.  Maybe the Mystery Machine was a lighter blue-green color in later episodes but in the original Scooby Do Where Are You series it was a darker blue, even in the daytime shots.  Toys and models of the Mystery Machine always seem to be a light blue-green color.

    What brand of primer did you use?  I used Duplicolor Filler Primer and was able to start sanding later the same day.  I used 400 grit wet/dry paper.
