  1. Thanks Len. I simply applied glue front and rear, placed the kit upside down with some weights on top. There is a slight bow in the middle but it's not noticeable.
  2. Beautiful build(s). I agree with you about the wheel/brake design, but fortunately much iof this is hidden by the discs.
  3. I use them the other way round, Micro Set on the model and Sol on the decal. I always thought they were used alphabetically!
  4. This kit goes together really well and looks very impressive with its bright paint scheme. I used the new Tamiya Pearl Yellow and Semi Gloss Black. Decals went on smoothly without effort, all in all an enjoyable build.
  5. Thanks Curtis. The kit went together well, no issues to report other than my difficulties with the decals. When fitting the body over the chassis, the dashboard goes above the lip in the cowl area, this isn't mentioned in the instructions. The Scale Modelling channel on YouTube has a build review which is worth watching.
  6. Drill a small hole in the door and back of the handle. If you wish, cover the door with a piece of masking tape to protect the paintwork. Glue a piece of wire into the handle and carefully glue into place on door with a drop of superglue. Hope this helps!
  7. I have successfully used the PS range on plastic kits, with Tamiya Clear to provide a glossy surface. This page should help: https://www.tamiyausa.com/articles/painting-with-tamiya-synthetic-lacquers-35?article-id=35#.WTBxVMZm3IW
  8. Thanks for this review, and great work so far Michael. I like your treatment of the interior. I just received word that my kit has shipped from Tower Hobbies, can't wait for it to arrive!
  9. Chers guys. I used Micro Sol and Tamiya Mark Fit, neither of which worked particularly well.
  10. This is the R of G kit. the decals didn't respond well to setting solutions and had to use an aftermarket carbon fibre decal sheet for the roof and sidescoops. Paint is Tamiya Orange under clear pearl.
  11. The wheels are made by Scale Production in Germany, I bought both 19'' and 21''. http://www.scaleproduction.de/product_info.php?info=p1566_19--foose-nitrous-ii--2-wheels-with-tires-.html
  12. I started with the recent issue of the Lindberg Custom Van and cut out the three rear windows. The seats came from the Monogram '37 Ford, wheels are Foose Nitrous II from Scale Productions, and rear interior panels were created from plastic sheet. Paint is Tamiya TS15 Blue with Racing White interior.
  13. Nice conversion - the woodwork looks extremely realistic.
  14. I painted this several years ago when the colour first came out. It suits a variety of cars, mine include everything from a 1934 Ford 5 Window street rod to a Beach Buggy to a 2015 Mustang.
  15. This is one of the much maligned Trumpeter kits, but I rather like this Brad Leisure version. Painted in Tamiya Metallic Orange over a failed dark paint job as a base, with embossing powder for carpeting. Otherwise box stock.
