MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. That is a smart move - get your feet wet with something that you can afford to screw up. I personally have tried to hold on to every build, even the bad ones - they remind me of how far I've progressed and I was proud of them at the time I completed them!
  2. This is an outstanding how-to process so far!!
  3. If interested! Limited quantities and no additional Roadrunners planned until later into 2023.
  4. I spotted this on YouTube and I just love that AJ's car looks like something you'd see right on the street. Was this a Cutlass or some other model of Olds?
  5. All valid points. I just like that he gives advice on thinning ratios and how to spray a wide variety of paint types. I expect that experimentation will be involved with everything and results will vary. Let's be honest - we can all use the same spray can and get vastly different results.
  6. All - this guy has an amazing YouTube channel where he shows how to airbrush a wide array of different paints, and also how to make your own acrylic thinner and airbrush cleaner. Here's one video on airbrushing Molotov. Subscribe to his channel and you can go right down a rabbit hole!
  7. Thanks for this, I just ordered two cans of the white primer!!!
  8. I've seen the Mr. Surfacer primer around, but I was hoping to find a larger can of something that is maybe less expensive, or costs the same but goes a lot farther.
  9. Does anyone have any suitable substitutions for Tamiya Primer? I intend to spray Tamiya TS lacquer over it. Thanks!
  10. I just got one in the mail. I haven't started it yet, but the kit looks quite nice!
  11. Thanks Jim. I found one at a local Hobbytown and grabbed it. I actually had no major interest in it, but Salvino accidentally sent me a sheet of the vermillion decals for it (and told me to keep them when I called confused) so I bought the kit when I spotted it. I really don't get why they limited the release of this particular year.
  12. The latest issue of MCM mentions that the 1973 Petty Charger is no longer available. If anyone is interested, it can be found right now at Spotlight Hobbies.
  13. I just found this in the Coming Soon section of Model Roundup. Very cool! I wish there were more kits like this. I love transporters and trailers.
  14. Thanks Rex, this is awesome! The kit just arrived today. About $130 at MegaHobby, which is a far cry from the original Trumpeter price that I think was near $300.
  15. All - any suggestions on a paint match for this color? A company called Magnifire released the 1/12 Trumpeter kit at a greatly reduced price and I'd prefer to do the #1 car. I see that Zero Paints has an exact match, but I think I'll need several bottles to do a big 'un like this!
